Sarah’s in the newspaper…

As some of you may or may not yet know Sarah, our French and Spanish Marketing and Customer services executive, was an extra in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She recently did an interview with a local newspaper (and tried to sneak a Proporta plug in!) on her experience, so click here if you want to read more about it all (yes, she did meet Johnny Depp!) and click here for the picture.

For those of you with eagle-eyes you can see her in the film during the court scene, on the left hand side, wearing an orange dress and shouting 🙂

Europe’s first solar power train tunnel gets switched on…

As some of you may know here at Proporta we are quite into things that are ecologically friendly, which is one of the reasons that we have produced our Smart range of accessories (click here for more info). So when Hiran found an article on Europe’s first solar power train tunnel being switched on we thought this was something that deserved a mention.

The tunnel works by being covered in solar panels, which absorb solar energy to then provide power to Antwerp Central Station.

Apple announcement…

Last night was the eagerly anticipated Apple announcement., which meant the unveiling of a new Apple service, iCloud. The service offers users the possibility of connecting wirelessly to other devices, such as a laptop or another smartphone, and have full access to any photos and music on the device.

Chris’ photography…

If you’re a fan of photography you should definatley take a look at Chris Casson’s website. Not only is he customer services king here at Proporta, but he’s also a dab hand at taking pictures, which is why so many bands have asked him to take gig photos for them. Chris says that although he loves doing gig photography, he also likes taking artisitc pictures and therefore would like to submit them to shows and exhibitions.
