Davinci Virtual Office Launches Fourth iPad Sweepstakes

And the winner of the iPad is… Mitch Freifeld. Freifeld won a new Apple iPad in Davinci Virtual’s December iPad sweepstakes. It’s the perfect compliment to his virtual office space—and a perfect holiday gift.

Even with all the talk about the upcoming RIM Playbook, the iPad just keeps getting hotter. The iPad is listed as the  hottest Christmas gift for grown up and kids alike. Road warriors, mobile workers and others are snapping up the iPad in droves. A new iPad model isn’t expected until next spring.

If you didn’t win in the earlier rounds of Davinci Virtual’s iPad sweepstakes, don’t worry. Davinci Virtual is giving another lucky person the opportunity to win one of the tablet devices for free in its third iPad sweepstakes. The company is giving away another iPad and the drawing is Feb. 1, 21010.

Like I always say, virtual offices and the iPad may have more in common than you think. Both are revolutionary approaches to their sectors. The virtual office is clearly revolutionizing the way many entrepreneurs consume office space. And the iPad is revolutionizing tablet computing.

In case you haven’t had a proper introduction to the iPad, here you go: iPad’s Multi-Touch interface makes surfing the Web an entirely new experience, dramatically more interactive and intimate than on a computer. You can read and send e-mail on iPad’s large screen and almost full-size “soft” keyboard or import photos from a Mac, PC or digital camera, see them organized as albums, and enjoy and share them using iPad’s elegant slideshows. iPad makes it easy to watch movies, TV shows and YouTube, all in HD, or flip through the pages of an ebook you downloaded from Apple’s new iBookstore while listening to your music collection.

Normally, the iPad costs $499 for the entry-level model. Davinci Virtual is giving you a chance to get your hands on one for free. There’s no catch. You don’t have to be a virtual office customer to win the iPad, but current virtual office customers are eligible to enter. So click here to enter to win an iPad from Davinci Virtual.

Check out this review of the iPad. Worth the watch…


Get Your Beauty Sleep with a Virtual Office Space

Are you getting your beauty sleep? When you rent an virtual office, you’ll have more work-life balance—including more time to sleep—because you can hammer away at office tasks without commuting, wading through office distractions, or engaging in office politics.

And you need your beauty sleep if you want to be healthier, and more attractive. A new study from the Karolinksa Institute in Stockholm discovered that sleep deprived people are perceived as less healthy, less attractive, and more tired than after a normal night’s sleep.

“This suggests that humans are sensitive to sleep related facial cues, with potential implications for social and clinical judgments and behavior,” the study authors concluded. “Studies are warranted for understanding how these effects may affect clinical decision making and can add knowledge with direct implications in a medical context.”

So ask yourself: Am I getting my beauty rest? Look in the mirror and you may find your answer. If you see dull, tired eyes, you aren’t making a good first impression. And as Davinci Virtual Office Solutions always says, “First Impressions Count.”

You can make a great first impression every time when you tap into Davinci Virtual’s virtual office solutions, from virtual receptionists, to virtual assistants to virtual office space. With a virtual office, you can establish instant credibility and project the image your company deserves.

Davinci Virtual Office Solutions has virtual offices in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami and more—and virtual offices in smaller cities like Chandler, Aurora, and Eagle. So whether you live in a large metropolitan area or a small suburb, you can rely on Davinci Virtual to help you drive productivity—and get your beauty rest.

AOL Ranks Atlanta Third Best for Telecommuters

AOL recently named the “11 Best Cities for Telecommuters.” Atop the list is Austin, followed by Cincinnati. So why is Atlanta among the top cities for telecommuters? Let’s find out what AOL had to say:

“Anybody who has watched Atlanta over the past few decades should be unsurprised at its emergence as one of America's most energetic cities. Home to four major league sports teams, several top universities, and an impressive array of cultural offerings, it gives residents the full city experience. What's particularly impressive, however, is that Atlanta combines all of this with a cost of living that's 4 percent below the average for a big city in America, and a crime rate that has fallen sharply over the past decade.”

Atlanta is one of the most attractive cities to live, work and play in the Southeast. With plenty of options for virtual office space in prime locations across Atlanta, it also makes it an ideal place for telecommuters, in Davinci Virtual Office Solutions’ book.

Davinci Virtual has 11 virtual office locations in Atlanta. Although you can rent virtual office space in Atlanta at any of these 11 locations, let’s take a quick look at the three virtual offices available on Peachtree Street, one of the best addresses in Atlanta:

You can rent virtual office space at 235 Peachtree Street NE for just $50 a month. You can rent virtual office space at 1401 Peachtree Street for just $50 in Midtown Atlanta. That’s a bargain in any city!
You can rent virtual office space at 191 Peachtree Street for just $95 a month in Downtown Atlanta.

All of these locations offer a prime business address, mail and package receipt, access to a business support center, a lobby greeter, a client drop off and pick up point, and more. You can even rent conference rooms and day office space on demand. So when it comes to the third best city from which to telecommute, Davinci Virtual has all the bases covered with these and other locations.

AOL Ranks Cincinnati Second Best for Telecommuters

AOL recently named the “11 Best Cities for Telecommuters.” Atop the list is Austin. We looked the reasons why AOL named Austin a telecommuter’s dream earlier this week. Now, it’s time to look at the runner up: Cincinnati, Ohio.

Indeed, Cincinnati, Ohio ranked second on AOL’s list of best cities for telecommuters. What reason did AOL give for the honor? Let’s check out what AOL said from its own mouth:

“Ohio’s largest metropolitan statistical area has all the standard accoutrements of a major city: With a ballet and a symphony, an opera and several museums, it is home to more than 10 colleges and universities, and is headquarters to nine Fortune 500 companies. But its real claim to fame is culinary: Host of America’s largest Oktoberfest celebration, Cincinnati’s rich German heritage continues to flavor the city's culture. In recent years, however, schnitzel and bratwurst have given way to spicier fare, and Cincinnati’s famous five-way chili has propelled it to the title of  “chili capital of the world,” with more chili restaurants per capita than any other city in the world. Yet, even with all those beans, Cincinnati remains the second most fit, third most literary and second cheapest city on this list.”

Very interesting. When you look at it from that perspective, I can agree that Cincinnati would be a great city for telecommuters. The good news is Davinci Virtual Office Solutions has plenty of options for virtual offices in Cincinnati. There is a trio of virtual offices in Cincinnati to choose from:

You can rent virtual office space at Cincinnati’s Blue Ash building for as little as $135 a month. Your premium address would be 11427 Reed Hartman Highway.

You could also opt for virtual office space at the Chiquita Center. Your business card would read 250 East Fifth Street, 15th Floor. Virtual offices at this location also run about $135 a month.

Finally, you could choose virtual office space at Cincinnati Executive Office at 9453 Waterstone Blvd. That virtual office will cost you only about $100 a month.

Beyond the premium business address—and the ability to have chili five-way any time you want—you’ll also get mail and package receipt, a business support center, lobby greeter, and more. You can also rent a conference room office on-demand. So if you are considering renting virtual office space in Cincinnati—AOL’s second best city for telecommuters—look no further than Davinci Virtual Office Solutions.
