I met up with Simon from WOM World at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, it was my first time in the hotel itself. I was expecting the unboxing to be done at the river walk along the convention center. And I least expect the unboxing to be done at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark! I always wanted to go up but I can’t justify paying S$20 for it for non-hotel guest. Nevertheless I was surprise and happy that I can get to visit the SkyPark!
Took part in a Nokia contest organised by WOM World which involves blogger from London, New York, India and Singapore. I have no idea what is it at the moment. The only clue I get is 2 messages. All will be unfold next week! Keeping my fingers cross, hope I can win a Nokia N8!
Received the 4th and final challenge of Teach a Technophobe last week! But both my mom and I was pretty busy and both of us only manage to complete the 4th challenge today.
The 4th challenge involves using a camera to record a video to spread your views on the E75’s email capability. Since my mom is a little camera shy, she do not really want to face the camera. So I thought why not ask my mom to use the E75 to record a video of something and then email me the video so that I can upload it to YouTube.
Challenge #3 from my Nokia’s Teach a Technophobe has arrived in my mailbox yesterday. Finally my dad was at home and hence he is able to received it on my behalf and hence I am able to complete this challenge earlier.
This challenge is slightly more complicated and even I myself have to figure it out for sometime before I can teach my mother. It involves sending a location using email on Nokia Ovi Maps as well as attaching a picture of my mom.
Challenge #2 from my Nokia’s Teach a Technophobe has arrived in my mailbox on Friday. The challenge is for me to teach my mom how to snap a picture using the E75 3.2MP camera and email the picture to me. This time the challenge is more of a feature discovery for my mom as when I told her taught her this, she was like, “oh I didn’t know you can do that”. This challenge took a little longer than challenge #1 for both of us as I explained to her the various camera settings as well.
My first challenge of the Teach a Technophobe has arrived on Friday. I choose my mom (Jas Ngan) for the challenge as she requires email access on the go pretty often as she is a businesswoman. I am using the very excellent free Symbian application called Best Screen Snap to capture a screenshot on the E75 and I tied the shortcut key to the camera shutter button.
WOM World has sent me two sets of Nokia E75 all the way from UK for a E75 Project. The project name is called “Teach a Technophobe”. I have to coach a user, in this case, it will be my mom on how to use the Nokia E75 for email messaging. There will be a few series of challenges for both my mom and I to complete on a weekly basis.
