at 11:11 am on November 11, Carnival starts in SoftMaker's hometown of NÃ¼rnberg
- world-famous all over Germany.
Samba in Rio? Bah! Mardi Gras? Forget it! We
have carnival speeches, we dance the polonaise, and we drink way too much beer.
Unexpected side effects of Carnival become apparent nine months later and go by
the names of Hans and Franz.
Harebrained Pricing in NÃ¼rnberg, Germany.
It is customary to do harebrained things on the day Carnival starts. Following
this tradition, SoftMaker will slash prices of
TextMaker, PlanMaker, and Nyditot
Virtual Display. You'll be able to get many programs for pitiful amounts of
money - starting at $11.11 or EUR 11.11!
This offer is valid for exactly one
day, which is about as long as we need to come to our senses again and limited
to 1,111 copies.
However: Carnival hasn't yet begun in NÃ¼rnberg, Germany but
the offers are valid from Thursday, 11:11 am German time.

In addition, SoftMaker is proud to announce that they was selected by AMD:
American chip-making giant Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has an ambitious
goal: Through its "50 by 15" initiative, it plans to connect 50% of the
world's population to the Internet by the year 2015.
The centerpiece of
this initiative is the Personal Internet Communicator (PIC), a Windows
CE-based computer with a price tag for emerging markets: The full device
will sell for just US$185 (~ EUR 145), and AMD's resellers will accommodate
customers with financing and lease options.
The PIC offers not only web browsing, audio and video capabilities and
instant messaging, but also high-powered word processing and spreadsheet
capabilities - and this software has been created by SoftMaker: Instead of
licensing Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel, AMD decided to ship TextMaker
and PlanMaker, the flagship office suite applications of Germany-based
SoftMaker, with every PIC computer worldwide.
This means that millions of
users worldwide will be able to work with TextMaker and PlanMaker and
use this powerful office suite in their native tongue. AMD has just
introduced this computer, in cooperation with TATA Indicom (VSNL), in India,
and other large markets will follow soon. Announced so far have been
contracts with telcom providers in Mexico and the Caribbean.
