TigerDirect.com hosts PC Charity race in Miami

IMG_1714

Miami Florida hosted the 4th Regional PC Race of this year on June 1st at the Flagler Street TigerDirect.com Retail Store. Ryan Hoekenga, a 2012 veteran of the PC Races took 1st place with a record time of 3:50, Fidel Lopez in 2nd place with 4:08 and Carlos Zamarano taking 3rd place in 4:29. It was a legit atmosphere of pure techie heart, and the love for PC parts, and what happens when you put them together to create your own computer. There we’re 18 racers on site and ready to rock that race with tools in hand, and an eye on that cash money prize.

South Florida Technology Summit

The South Florida Technology Summit took place at our Miami Headquarters this week. It featured over 40 technology exhibitors, including some of the top brands in the industry. The latest products, and newest technologies. It was such an epic event, there was food, drinks, technology, techies and tons of prizes. It was such a great experience and I am already a bit too excited for next year, so far it has been the biggest Tech Convention in Miami! Even The Lab  Miami was there and they hosted a Start-up demo night, where local start-ups were able to showcase their latest project, pitch it to the crowd and some even got investors interested in their big projects. See you next year Miami!

E-Waste: Toxins in Everyday Technology

3480302
