Hoorah for computers

April the 4th is the feast day of the lesser known Saint Isidore of Seville. This Spanish Saint looks over your computer and the World Wide Web, and is the person you’ll need to pray to when your PC crashes or an important document disappears into cyberspace. Although Isidore never used a computer himself, he was given the title of ‘Patron Saint of Computers’ as his ideals best reflect the concerns and ideals of computer designers, programmers and users (we reckon that means he must have been a bit of a geek). Either way, Proporta have found some peace of mind that when your computer goes haywire and you start to see red, Senor Isidore will be looking over you and will do his best to make everything alright.

Hello Darwin

Lookie what we have here… Proporta’s very own office dog. Introducing Darwin, a nine week old cross between a Dalmatian and Border Collie. Currently residing in Jenny in Accounts’ office by day, he’s getting up to speed on our credit control procedures and is a dab hand at filing invoices. Give it a few months and we pity anyone late on payments. As you can imagine, everyone in the office is simply swooning, but then again you can hardly blame them…

Ultimate Protection from Proporta

Fugu is the Japanese word for puffer-fish, which is both a great delicacy and a deadly poison. The little fella looks innocuous enough, until you make him angry, and makes delicious eating if you can get past the aggressive teeth, puffed up fins, and, of course, the deadly poisonous inner organs.

Proporta have taken a leaf out of the book of this clever puffer-fish, and are proud to bring you the Fugu Case (Anti-Theft – Mobile). This protective case offers the usual high standard of Proporta protection, keeping your mobile safe from everday knocks and scratching, but with an all new defense system designed to guard against theft. Once activated by its owner, the Fugu Case is armed with a code dependent incendiary device that is triggered by any unauthorised body that attempts to steal it. The ensuing explosion inflates the case to 20 times its normal size, thus deterring the thief and alerting the owner to the attempted robbery. Never again do you need to worry about light-fingered phone thieves, and if you fancy some puffer-fish protection, we’ve also got a range of exclusive discounts available when you buy this product. Check it out here.
