My Magical Christmas Wish List

A Christmas Wish List Powered By Magic Software

So many wonderful things are backed up behind the scenes by Magic Software. Here are ten things I'd love to get in my Christmas stocking that are "powered by Magic."

1. Lakers Tickets – The Staples Center uses ABI MasterMind, an application written in eDeveloper. So my number one wish is for Lakers Tickets.
2. A Subscription to the Orange County Register. – The Orange County Register uses Burt Technologies software for newspaper insert management, so I'd like a subscription to the paper, please.
3. Dinner at Outback Steakhouse. – Wow, this is already becoming the greatest Christmas Stocking ever and I'm only at number 3.
4. Weekend Rental of a Chrysler Sebring Convertible from Advantage Rent A Car. – Nothing like a weekend cruising Pacific Coast Highway.
5. Casino Upgrades at the Orleans Casino. – That's right. Orleans Casino is one of 16 casinos operated by Boyd Gaming, a Magic customer.
6. A Bottle of Kenneth Cole Signature, Men's Fragrance. – One of many designer brands carried by Coty, another Magic customer.
7. A Pair of adidas Climawarm Herm shoes, Size 13. – OK, I know my Christmas Stocking is getting full, but it’s a big stocking. :)
8. Club Med Vacation – Uh huh, Club Meds worldwide are powered by Magic applications.
9. World Peace I can too get World Peace delivered by a Magic application for Christmas! You see, the United Nations General Assembly wrote a special Magic application to manage its resolutions and amendments in the five official languages of the UN (English, French, Chinese, Russian and Arabic). Pretty cool, huh?
10. A Lump of Coal Unfortunately, I may only get and deserve this last item, which could be delivered by Magic customer Wabush Mines up in Quebec and Labrador, Canada.

Here's hoping you all get the things that you are wishing for next year. Please join me in adding number 9 to your list. Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
