    According to the survey of 1,000 Americans, 84 percent feel that gifts available at boutiques and small retailers are more unique and personal and 64 percent feel that they are better quality.

    U.S. shoppers will look to boutiques and small retailers for Mother's Day gifts, according to a survey from FedEx. http://news.van.fedex.com/mothersday2012?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+FedexNewsroom-PressReleases+(FedEx+Newsroom+-+Press+Releases)

    In 2012 almost 20% of shoppers has started their holiday shopping by end of September and another 22% following in October.
    So here are our recommendations what you should do when:
    Walk through each month.
  • We think your digital world should be accessible without having to actually ‘go to search’. Just like few people say they are going to ‘go online’, we want to make ‘searching’ something that’s just there when you need it.  So from the Start screen in Windows 8.1, you can just start typing what you want.  A city.  An artist.  The name of your cat – it doesn’t matter.  As you type, you will see suggestions about what you might be looking for and a quick tap on any of the suggestions will expose you to a whole new way to use Windows.  Regardless of where something lives and what it is – a document on your PC, your photo album in the cloud, an app, a website, a program – with just a tap, you can play, view, launch, browse, and more. Modern search isn’t just about finding information. It’s about using your PC to do the things you love.

    A faster way to find, discover and do
    With Windows 8.1, Bing powers a new search experience and delivers new and updated Bing Apps

    Find with one search - Search from device, cloud, apps and web all in one place
    Discover and Explore - Gather inspiration with customized content that fits your interest
    Do More Faster - Fewer steps to get things done

    Bringing the advertiser one step closer to the customer
