It’s a great time to be a family

Posted on November 24, 2011


In October, Microsoft conducted a survey titled “Families and Technologies 2011.”   More than 3700 respondents across 7 Asian countries participated in the said survey.  It was found out the Filipinos keep in touch with their families through technology.  Filipinos are said to communicate through social networking sites like Facebook, share photos the most, and that families have more than 10 gadgets, which is highest in the region.

Here are different scenarios on how families use Windows, Windows Phone, and Office:

A boy gives a compelling Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to his skeptical parents, on why the family needs a dog. After his son’s success, dad creates his own presentation, which proves less successful.

A father and son swap their Windows 7 laptop PCs so dad can help out with a difficult homework assignment. But dad is surprised and impressed to see how his son returns the favor.

Relatives meet the newest member of their family via Windows Live video chat. As they carefully pass around their Windows 7 laptop, it’s almost as if they’re holding an actual baby. Just ask grandpa.

It’s a great time to be a family because Microsoft is giving away lots of prizes this Christmas season.  For very purchase of a Windows 7 product , you get a chance of winning a 2012 Mitsubishi Montero Sport, a trip for 4 to Singapore, a package 4 HTC Radar phones, or a dinner buffet for 7.
