While we are eagerly waiting to see what exactly Microsoft wants to share tomorrow, it appears that there are more and more signs of this being something focused on us. What do I mean? Look at the page Microsoft has set up with regards to the event– or better yet, look at the pic above. Somehow I don’t think this will be an event focused on the businessman. Also, take a look at this– the Microsoft Student Twitter that’s designed for “Representing the Student Experience team at Microsoft–we’re here to make sure students around the world have good experiences with Microsoft!” Out of all of Microsoft’s many Twitter feeds (such as for Windows Phone, Zune, Xbox, Office etc.), only it and the main Microsoft (@Microsoft) seem to mention this big event. Hmm… maybe this is Microsoft looking for the attention of a certain market?
Oh, and one last thing. In the top pic, look at the green dot in the upper right. That phone looks very curiously like the supposed “Turtle” phone… In all seriousness, I know my interest has definitely been even more piqued for this tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see what it is exactly Microsoft has in store (who knows, maybe if we’re really lucky they’ll announce the Courier!).
There will be a live webcast of the event at Microsoft’s site here for those interested starting at 10 o’clock AM PDT (or 1 PM for those of us on the East Coast), and you can make sure that whatever Microsoft’s got planned, we’ll have it covered for you here.
Ask TeenTechBlog- Week of December 15- December 22 December 16, 2008Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Announcements , add a comment
As we mentioned in our Happy Birthday post, we feel that another way we can accomplish that goal is to ask you, our readers, what questions or problems your having with technology. Having trouble backing up an iPod, not sure what type of cell phone to get? Ask us! We hope to then research the ones that are most interesting or requested and make those questions the focus of future posts in the coming week.
You can either drop your question as a comment below, or if you prefer, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Unfortunately, seeing as we our students ourselves and have things outside the blog, we may not be able to answer each and every question you may have so we highly recommend posting your questions as a comment; who knows, another reader might have your answer!
So start sending in those questions, and we look forward to helping you.

Teen Ink: Make Yourself Heard June 27, 2008Posted by Eli Blumenthal in : Teen Info , 2comments
Want to be the next TeenTechBlog? Dont count on it lol, but for those among us who share our desire to express ourselves to the broader world despite not yet even at drinking age, we would like to inform you about about an incredible institution, TeenInk.
Founded in 1989, TeenInk publishes submitted work written by teenagers (at no charge for submission) in their national monthly magazine, their website, and if you’re good enough, their books of collected works. Sorry– they dont pay you for your work.
But if it offers any consolation, we don’t make a penny off this blog either. Check it out! And if you do write something, or have written for them in the past, let us know in the comments.
