This is going to be interesting.
Over the next two months, I will be taking part in an honest to goodness high tech adventure!
Sony Electronics Corporation has chosen yours truly, along with several other daddy bloggers, to take part in a project where we use and review a whole host of high-end entertainment products. You can check out my short intro video here or read the details in the official press release.
Sony is loaning our group of dads, multiple electronic gadgets like televisions, digital cameras and video recorders, and asking us to perform various projects with said equipment. Loan is the key word here. We don’t get to keep the stuff, which is a bummer, because the television is nice. Nope, in order to facilitate an unbiased review of the products, we have to ship them back when we finish. So you can be assured that I will be giving you my honest to goodness opinion on how well the products perform, as well as, how easy they are to use.
Which brings me to the interesting part.
Even though I am a co-founder of a digital media company, I am a bit of a Luddite. Sure I use technology daily, but my colleagues claim that I have magnets in my head and they may be right. I can do things to electronic equipment that is impossible for the common man. For instance, as I was installing some accounting software the other day, I accomplished something never before witnessed in modern era of humanity. I opened every application, every file, every picture, every everything on my computer simultaneously. I’m not kidding. The icons along the bottom of my machine were jumping up and down like a digital readout on an equalizer at a Metallica concert. I called Daddy Troy, who is the DadLab’s tech genius and worked at NASA for a long time.
He said “DUDE this cannot happen, unplug your machine now, it’s gonna blow.” He also recommended that I check myself for the mark of the beast, which I did. Other than a strange looking freckle on my arm, which I will check out with a dermatologist next week, I’m cool.
The point is that over the next few months, along with my sweet wife and three inquisitive children, I will be testing out some interesting high tech products from SONY and bringing you the skinny. I am excited about introducing my kids to some really cool stuff and spending some quality time with the family in high tech pursuits.
