Equinix to Exhibit at the 7th Asia Pacific Trading Summit in Hong Kong

June 4 2009, booth 8, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong

HONG KONG, June 3 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that it will be exhibiting and co-sponsoring a networking cocktail reception at the 7th Asia Pacific Trading Summit in Hong Kong. Taking place at the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, the full day conference organized by FIX Protocol Limited (FPL) on June 4 will bring together the region's leading industry participants to discuss global market developments in electronic trading in the Asia Pacific region.

With the highly volatile and competitive nature of today's markets, financial market participants are finding that they can derive significant advantages by operating within a scalable and global data center infrastructure capable of supporting complex and real-time data feeds around the world. In the Asia Pacific market, the continued growth of automated and algorithmic trading has driven the requirement for more sophisticated electronic trading strategies. Designed for best execution of such next generation electronic trading strategies, Equinix Financial eXchange fosters a high-performance, low-latency and global financial information ecosystem comprised of buy-side and sell-side firms, hedge funds, execution venues, market data suppliers, network providers, and trading technology vendors all interconnected inside Equinix's neutral open marketplace International Business Exchange(TM) (IBX(R)) data centers.

By operating in close proximity, Equinix Financial eXchange enables financial market participants to expand operations within a scalable environment, open new markets that they were previously challenged to enter, improve reliability and redundancy of operations, and to reduce costs by eliminating the need to link to multiple partners over significant geographic distances. It also enables the fastest possible links to the world's largest trading venues, as well as access to a critical mass of network service providers.

"Equinix has been working with customers like ICAP and Dow Jones to further reduce latency, improve resilience and provide high quality execution," said David Wilkinson, Senior Director, Business Development of Equinix in Asia Pacific. "With the increasing interest in the Asia Pacific market, our presence in Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney - the four leading financial centers in the region -- provides a high performance connectivity platform. FPL's AP Trading Summit provides a good opportunity for us to share our experience of working with some of the leading brands in the financial sector."

Equinix representatives will be at booth 8 during the exhibition and at our co-sponsored networking cocktail reception at 5pm to discuss how Equinix Financial eXchange is helping customers in the Asia Pacific region to gain lasting competitive advantages.

HT to cellodude on the IV MB:

>>Logitech announces G940 Flight System

I am a big fan of Logitech force feedback racing wheels. I have one of the company’s G25 force feedback wheels and it is fantastic. Logitech

has made several force feedback racing wheels over the years, but the company hasn’t put its force feedback technology into flight simulation gear until now.

Logitech announced the Flight system G940 today that includes a joystick, dual throttle, and rudder pedals inspired by commercial and military aircraft. The system includes more than 250 possible programmable button combinations that ensure that you don’t have to remove your hands form the controls.

Guy Willner joins Teraco board

Press release:

>>Founder of Europe’s largest data centre operator throws his weight behind South Africa’s first vendor neutral data centre.

London, UK, 2 June 2009 – Teraco Data Environments today announces that Guy Willner, co-founder and CEO of IXEurope (now Equinix Europe), has joined its board.

Guy Willner has also invested in the company alongside leading international and local shareholders including black owned South African private equity group, Treacle Private Equity and prominent British industrialist, Sir Peter Michael.

“I’m excited to be involved with Teraco. South Africa’s telecoms is now at a similar stage of liberalisation as Europe was when we started IXEurope, opening up a new world of opportunity for businesses to connect cost effectively and reliably,” says Willner. “Carriers and service providers will increasingly see the value of a neutral point to interconnect their networks and do business. The time is now right to create a real home for the Internet in South Africa and I believe the Teraco management have addressed the
 opportunity in the right way. The team is very competent, focused on being the highest quality player in the market and is already well on track to building a very successful business. I look forward to working closely with the team on this exciting project"

Guy Willner, 45, has over fifteen years of senior leadership experience in high-tech companies. He founded the UK-based colocation provider IXEurope in 1998, forging high-level strategic relationships with key accounts as the company's turnover grew over 600% in the first three years. His leadership team grew IXEurope into a London Stock Exchange listed business operating 14 large-scale data centres in four countries. Equinix Inc (Nasdaq EQIX), the largest global operator of network-neutral data centers and Internet exchange services, acquired the company in 2007 for £270.1 million (over R3.5 billion at current exchange rate). He now serves in a non-executive role as President of Equinix Europe.

Andrew Tuckey, Chairman of Teraco, said: "Guy has already made a major contribution to Teraco and we welcome him to our board. His experience in the sector and in building and growing successful companies will be of enormous value to Teraco as our business accelerates, and as we become the yardstick in South Africa for vendor neutral data environments."

About Teraco
Founded in 2007, Teraco is South Africa’s first provider of vendor neutral Data Centres, with an absolute focus on building and operating its facilities in Johannesburg and Cape Town to global best practice. This gives customers a technically superior, physically more secure and lower cost environment for their information systems.

Leading international investors and Treacle Private Equity, a black owned South African private equity group, back Teraco. The company is a Level 4 contributor (DTI Codes).

in the next nine months three mobile carriers will be launching applications (Immersion) created that allow users to communicate emotions nonverbally.

HT to cellodude on the IV MB. From the Wall Street Journal:

Immersion Corp., a haptics developer based in San Jose, Calif., says that in the next nine months three mobile carriers will be launching applications it created that allow users to communicate emotions nonverbally. For example, frustration can be communicated by shaking the phone, which will create a vibration that will be felt by the other party. That person might then choose to respond with what the developers call a “love tap”—a rhythmic tapping on the phone that will produce a heartbeat-like series of vibrations on the other party’s phone.

Immersion’s general manager of touch business, Craig Vachon, says the next step is developing a phone that can deliver a physical sensation based on the position of a finger on a touch screen. One application would be a touch-screen keyboard that feels like a traditional keyboard, so that users could more easily distinguish exactly where each key begins and ends. The idea would be to help users avoid errant taps on the screen and the resulting garbled messages.

“The technology is such that we could blindfold you and you would be able to feel the demarcation between the keys of a keypad, on a completely flat touch screen,” Mr. Vachon says. The technology is being tested in handsets now and should be made available to consumers sometime in the next 12 months, he says.
