With all the hussle and bussle of the new decade, students at Penn Manor are keyed up about the upcoming technologies.
Molly Principe looked over the LG 3D TV and exclaimed, “It would make you feel like you were actually there.” Principe also added that, “Project Natal would be pretty sweet. I’d play that.”
Ryan Wissler also had good feed back about Project Natal, saying that he would play because, “It’d be fun and better than the Wii.”
On the contrary, other students were not feeling as thrilled about the new items.
Eric Gerlach stated his opinion on the iSlate, “I think that it would be annoying to have a touch screen computer. I would rather have an iPhone than an iSlate.”
Despite what students think, the makers of these products are expecting to have a full sellout. Some people say the iSlate will potentially be bigger than the iPhone.
