Event Coverage: Microsoft Family Day

Microsoft Philippines, the country’s subsidiary partner of Microsoft US and popular brand maker of computer software, recently held a Microsoft Family Day in the Microsoft office at the 6750 Building, Makati City last November 12, 2011.

This special event was where it was also announced the beginning of this year’s holiday campaign showcasing the various range of retail products using Microsoft licensed software including Windows 7, Microsoft Office, and Windows Phone 7. With the theme, “It’s a great time to be a family”, Microsoft exhibits how the advent of mobile and internet technology connects families closer together.

In the confines of the Microsoft office, the employees and guests of Microsoft Philippines were treated to a wide array of fun and excitement that both parents and their children went on to enjoy in a whole day of games and surprises. The event featured the latest in interactive video games for the Xbox 360 which both kids and adults had a wonderful time playing with. In other rooms, attendees got to try good-old fashioned parlor games where one can actually win prizes.

In a separate area, dads and moms got to enjoy trying out, and buying at discounted prices, the latest tech gadgets like laptops and desktops from Microsoft partners: Neo, Sony Vaio, HP, Lenovo and Dell. HTC also featured the Radar, their latest smart phone model which brings a energy-packed processing power and apps that would definitely compete with, or might even surpass, the most popular brands of smart phones in the market today.

One gadget that captured my attention is the latest computer mouse from Microsoft. This is no other than the Microsoft Touch Mouse that’s exclusive for Windows 7 users. As a highlight of its amazing features, this cool accessory revolutionizes the curser navigation by allowing the power of the fingertips to do the usual click, scroll or even pan functions of an ordinary mouse in a convenient wireless gadget.

One special element of the holiday campaign I mentioned earlier is that lucky winners can bag any of the fabulous prizes such as: a brand new Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2012; a trip for four to Singapore; and a family bundle of four HTC Radar Phones. In order to qualify, one must buy a genuine Window 7 from participating Microsoft partner vendors.

After a whole day of fun and games, Microsoft also prepared a wide range of food buffet for everyone’s enjoyment. The Microsoft Family Day is part of a campaign that shows all these technologies have become an intrinsic part of every family’s daily lives. After all, Filipinos are big believers that technology can help us to communicate better and do almost everything much easier.
