1st Sony Event!

On Thursday, April 8th, I went to my very first Sony Event, and a VIP one at it too. It wasn't quite what I expected but it was enough to keep me interested. I also got to check out and play (first time I held a PS3 controller too) a Wipeout demo in 3D. Yes, 3D using the 3D glasses on a Bravia television.
The event went on for three hours, but I decided to leave just 45 minutes after the event began. It wasn't because of boredom, but two reasons: the products they showed weren't things I were interested in (mobile phones, mp3 players, cameras) and the fact, since my friend and I were the only two (at that time) young adults, our brains were much faster to understand the technology the 30 to 60 year men couldn't. So we didn't need to be educated about what a specific product had or how it worked, we knew just from a glance, a look, a feel, and the use how it worked, it's uniqueness and well, the overall qualities.
Before we left though, we got a gift (which I believe everyone did as well). The spring 2010 catalogue of the new products, the same ones showed in the event, a "Micro Vault" Sony lanyard, a free Blu-ray copy of the movie Vantage Point (sadly I can't view it), and a Sony "Green Bag." [You can view them at the bottom of this post].
Hopefully next time they have an event again, and I get invited, it won't be like CES, but more like a presentation. I prefer presentations than a flee market look 'round.
P.S. The X10 beats the Ipod/Ipod Touch by a mile (in terms of specs). Hopefully, Sony can market the product better than Apple. Though, I hear it will cost only $150 on a three year plan with Rogers (only at the moment). Otherwise, the product costs well over 700 bucks. Price is certainly comparable with the Nokia N900 (which is not even available via distributors in Canada) and the Apple Ipod Touch.
Also, don't forget to read about FIFA 2010 in 3D! I know this topic will be very popular on here Opera because of the number of Europeans with Opera blogs.
