Gadget Share and Demo Night
Date and Time
February 28, 2012 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM (GMT-6 Central Time US & Canada, Guadalajara, Mexico City)
Graham Group Interactive, 2014 West Pinhook Road, Suite 210, Lafayette, LA.
Note that this meeting is held on the fourth Tuesday, rather than the third Tuesday, as Feb. 21 is Mardi Gras
This is "Show and Tell" with an agenda. Members are asked to bring whatever gadgets and devices they have that other members may not have had the opportunity to handle. This is also an opportunity to see how your web pages render on devices that you may not otherwise have access to. In each case, there will be an actual agenda, using these steps to the degree of emphasis that is appropriate:
1. Describe the device, what it is used for, what is the rationale for it, where it fits into the larger picture, who it is marketed to, etc.
2. Demo the device showing your favorite features... and, showing the shortcomings, as well.
3. If this is a device that renders web pages, point the device to various URLs that members would like to see rendered on the device.
We have several items already lined up:
-Two differenltly scaled projection system that use your iPhone and/or iPad ito show videos, etc. Plus, using bluetooth to send the sound from the iOS device to remote powered speakers.
-Kindle Fire that has been tuned up for high performance. Plus one that is fairly stock, to compare.
-Several other tablet devices and phones.
-A clip-on camera that looks like a bluetooth earpiece (which it also is) but takes reasonable quality video as well. For spies?
-A demo of a DSLR by a real videographer/photographer.
-Plus whatever you bring.
We look forward to this meeting, and if these demos prove valuable, may have a section of each meeting given over to a 10-minute "Gadget of the Month" brought by a member.
