For some people who know me very well, they know that I am an inner nerd. I love video games and reading up on cameras/cell phones. I hate going out (unless there's food involved) and I would much rather stay at home with Aaron in my pajamas eating chips and playing video games. So today, I convinced Aaron to go with me to the Engadget Reader Meetup in San Francisco. It was freezing cold but I got him to go with me (scoreeeeeeee)
My outfit for the event! I wore casual clothing so I would not stick out as much because I actually don't like to be noticed... haha ; o ;
Top: Glad News
Pants & Cardigan: Off Brand
I got a foxtail when i went overseas but never attached it to anything until now! Its so cute & fluffy hehe..
This is a close up of my make-up today... I am so sad! I lost my nude lipstick so I have to use lip concealer instead... -sadness- This is the second time I lost nude lipstick
Yay we got in! The venue had a capacity of 1200 people and I was very scared I would not get in ; o ;!!! The line was so crazy. It circled around the block four times. I got so excited & was playing so much with the gadgets that I didn't take photos.... ahhh sad me!!!
They had live tweets which were HILARIOUS! One that stuck out to me the most was about a man who would perform sexual favors in exchange for one of the giveaway prizes.
Around 8ish, people started camping out! I thought it was most cute because I would have done this too except Aaron is not fond of camping. I thought it was cute 70-80% of the people were blogging while they were there! People were walking around recording things for YT, tweeting, or taking a bunch of photos. :)
I thought this was funny. At the end of the night as I was about to leave, I saw the woman who was explaining the new line of HP laptops (that launched this Tuesday) go on Facebook secretly. I caught youuu!!!
I think out of all the gadgets I played with, I was the most interested in the Blackberry Playbook. I was contemplating on getting an ipad for my mother because of the battery life and ease of usage. But now after seeing the Playbook, I WANT IT FOR MYSELF!!!! The interface is so nice. I wish I took photos of it but basically, you navigate through swiping. It doesn't have any buttons (+1 pt for design), its small, light, the resolution is so sharp and the best thing is... IT HAS MULTITASK!!! The thing I hate about the iPad is that I have to pause every application to go on another one... Battery life is not released yet so I guess that is the deciding factor for me. I wonder how much it will cost...
They actually gave away two Playbooks and I was so insanely jealous at the people who won.
I really like going to these things. I can't wait to go next time.
