A few months back, I came across an article on Gizmodo Australia spruiking the opportunity to get involved in the Panasonic Insider Crew and the chance to win a Panasonic 3D TV. The Panasonic Insider Crew is run by Soup which conducts market research on new products across a number of projects. People can sign up free of charge to get involved and share their thoughts on up and coming products based upon their interests. If you’re interested in knowing more about how it works you can click here.
Anyway, I completed the survey and answered the all important final question which was to provide an outline of how to spread the word about the television to as many people as possible. For me, I was able to outline my general approach to covering a new device which usually entails an unboxing, a preview and then a review (after a suitable amount of time to get used to the device) as well as how I share this with friends, family and colleagues (through means such as this blog, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn).
Luckily for me, they loved my answer and I won the television! Needless to say I am quite stoked about it and look forward to getting hands on (although I will probably need help from my wife as I very much doubt I could unbox a fifty inch television with one hand free). To be honest, I found it a bit hard to concentrate for the rest of the afternoon at work after receiving the phone call as I attempted to come to terms with this unexpected acquisition. Needless to say, a 3D TV is probably one of the top geek gadgets of the season (even if the jury is still out on whether or not 3D TV will gain a foothold until glassless 3D displays hit the market – whenever that will be).
Anyway, I won’t spoil things with what I have planned in store but I look forward to getting a closer look at this television in the comfort of our home and give it a good work out. I have yet to organise delivery of the television with Panasonic but you can be sure to hear on the new Facebook page when it arrives (with photos)!
Stay tuned folks!
