“Ladies Who Tech”  Clever Girl Party at CES 2012

We were lucky enough to be gifted with a Sony Bloggie Live and Kingston’s Wi-Drive!!

First let me tell you a little about the party! Clever Girls invited me and a few ladies who tech to a happy hour at BARTOLOTTA, restaurante di mar. Yes, it is as fancy as it sounds. Located in the Paris hotel, Las Vegas, the quaint Italian restaurant served cuisine that was unusual, but extremely tasty. My blogging bud Staci squinched her nose when the rabbit and duck livers were passed around, but she gave it all a decent try. I do not know what was more fun, trying all of the gourmet foods or watching Staci try them all. I was also accompanies at my table with Yoli and Grace. We giggled a lot and enjoyed trying everything from pate to mozzarella and everything in between! We tweeted (of course) and talked with the sponsors about their products. Want to hear what we received?

The Sony Bloggie Live is the world’s first full HD pocket camera with built-in Wi-Fi. This is the coolest camera around, and I have to keep it from my husband. This was the first thing he claimed whenwe went through my CES loot. I have already shot my CES outfit posts and HPvideo with the Bloggie, and it is by far my new fav tech toy. With 8GB of storage, you can store hours of video and post content to social media sites wirelessly. What blogger does not want that. I mean c’mon, I can stream video wirelessly! I wish I had the Bloggie when I met Xzibit! When connected to the internet via Wi-Fi videos can be streamed live to Qik.com, a video hosting service, where your friends and family can watch your videos via connected computers, mobile phones and tablets.

The Kingston Wi-drive was awarded as a Finalists for Visionary Products Award in Mobile Consumer Electronics Storage! I, being the crazy person that I am, went to Storage Visions before CES2012 and was thrilled to see that we would be receiving one of these devices. What is a Wi-drive you ask? Kingston’s Wi-Drive is portable, wireless storage for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. How handy is that? You can use the Wi-drive to store all of your msic and movies while keeping your iPad and iPhone clear for apps, and guess what? There is even an app for that!  Download the free Wi-Drive App from the App StoreSM to access and and easily share the content on your Wi-Drive with Apple devices. There is an app for Android which is in beta and will be released shortly. I have found this Wi-drive extremely helpful to share files with my husband as well as free up the 150 beetles songs he downloaded to my iPad2!

At the end of the party, there was a raffle to give out several sponsor prizes, can you image my surprise with this announcement: “Jennifer Medeiros won the coveted Wii Just Dance Prize Pack from @UbiChamps which included a Wii, Just Dance 1, 2, 3 and Just Dance Summer Party.
