Last week I attended the “Techlicious” blogger event at Mrs. G’s in Lawrenceville, NJ, sponsored by Mrs. G’s and Electrolux. It is part of a 5 part blogger series that they have been hosting all year.
Suzanne Kantra of Techlicious came to speak to our group on 3D TV’s. My husband was very excited to attend this event as he is very tech savvy and actually used to write for a technology magazine a number of years ago. This was right up his alley. As for me, I’m not much of a techy girl. I figured I would attend to see some friends and try to understand the tech language as best I can.
Suzanne was unbelievable! I understood every word. She doesn’t speak in total techy language. Her company gears itself towards woman, and explaining and discussing technology through a woman’s point of view and speaks in layman’s terms. This was perfect for me.
She talked about the differences in TV’s and how 3D TV’s are simply a feature of a television. I always wondered how that worked. Many movie companies are selling their movies in 3D now and cable companies are beginning to offer 3D shows on television. I had no idea. I thought it was just for movies like “Coraline” and “Avatar”.
We were then able to have the 3D experience, I watched a group of people who were diving out of an airplane and it was super cool. It is definitely a cool feature for a TV. Plus, for kids or individuals who enjoy playing various games, you are able to hook them up to the TV for a 3D experience. Pretty cool!
Later that day, I found out that Mitsubishi seems to be the front runner of these televisions. They are on their third round of TV’s already. My husband always says not to buy the first one that comes out, wait for the second as they have worked out the kinks by then. So based on this information, I would feel most comfortable purchasing a Mitsubishi 3D television over another brand that may have only put out one 3D TV thus far.
This was definitely a cool learning experience, plus it’s always great spending time with the Mrs. G’s VIB’s (Very Important Bloggers). Kudos to @debbieschaeffer and @mrsmonj for organizing another great event.
