Ruminations on IT, the digital media, and some golf thrown in for good measure.

Dick Tracy

Whew.  It’s already Tuesday and I’m already hysterical.

Only five days until I leave for Viva Las Vegas, to attend, blog, and podcast the IBM Information on Demand event.

It’s not too late for you to join me in Vegas..but remember, whatever happens in Vegas ends up on my blog!

Too bad I won’t be able to carry this tricked out, Dick Tracy BlackBerry watch with me to the Strip.

I could be sitting there, hanging at the blackjack tables, staring down at my watch…only to get notified that my mom is calling me to tell me to get plenty of rest, all right there on my Dick Tracy watch.

All the cool BlackBerry kids will soon have one.

What it does is, other than allow you to be cool, is it lets you check your incoming BlackBerry messages without having to actually pull the BlackBerry out of its holster.

What will they think of next?

Well, I’m going to tell you.  And though it won’t necessarily help you buy a new BlackBerry Dick Tracy watch, it will potentially help you buy some needed IT investments.

IBM Global Financing, the lending and leasing business segment of IBM, is announcing a toolkit of financing offerings to help companies step up to smarter, more efficient technologies.

Starting this month, credit-qualified companies and business partners can take advantage of a smart financing toolkit of opportunities that include deferred payments, zero percent financing and attractive prices on IBM Certified Pre-owned Equipment.

Smaller and mid-sized companies can also benefit from a specially configured set of cross IBM solutions that they can acquire at a low monthly price per month, per user.

“For many cash and credit constrained companies, stepping up to Smarter IT can be challenging,” said IBM’s Dan Ransdell, client financing general manager, IBM Global Financing. “IBM Global Financing is helping to make that evolution even simpler with zero percent financing on IBM software and no-payment deferrals on IBM solutions until 2010.”

IBM Global Financing is also reminding customers in the US that they have a few months left to take advantage of IBM Global Financing’s enhanced IT lending rates and deferrals for hardware made possible by the 2009 Economic Stimulus Act.

Here’s hoping I don’t need my own personal economic stimulus after five days in Veggas.
