Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Stanley Leisure has opened two new tax-free sports betting sites. Stanleybet.co.uk is hosted in the UK and was launched in tandem with stanleybet.com, its offshore operation based in Malta. Both sites offer customers 'tax-free' betting on a range of sports although the outfit specialises in association football. It reckons it will be able to offer odds on up to 400 matches a week from 16 countries. Punters can also bet on other major sports, including golf, tennis and rugby, as well as the gee-gees.



E-services group, e-xentric plc, announced a pre-tax profit of £206,000 for the six months ended 31 July 2000, compared to a £333,000 loss for the same period last year. In May 2000 it acquired MCA (now e-xentric UK Ltd) and also bought 5-online in August 2000.




Online entertainment services company, Scour, has filed for Chaper 11 bankruptcy in LA. The site, which lets user swap video and audio files, says that it made the move to protect its business and allow it to continue to operate "in the face of burdensome lawsuits." The company is under legal fire, accused of copyright infringement. Companies currently involved in the legal wranglings include Sony, Viacom and 20th Century Fox.
