Default DaveMac coming to Sydney and Hong Kong...

... any #ZuneNation or ABI members in those areas that fancy a get-together and drink?

I'll be in Sydney 18th Sep-20th Sep, and Hong Kong only overnight on 22 Sep-23rd Sep. Love to catch up and talk technology, Zune, Windows Phone 7 and anything else along those lines!

If those times won't work I will be back in both cities in the first week of October.

Cheers, Dave.

Why yes, yes it did. It joined Tasmania in the land of the forgotten.

Doesn't look good for Canada...Dave is right next door and we are a relatively big market compared to some of these locations but we don't get to see him...

Haha, I need to do an ABi forum tour...

Well, greetings from Sydney - had an awesome flight in. Was so great to see all the Zune HDs on the flight being used, and we had great feedback from passengers. I loved the comment "I have an iPhone and heard that Zunes suck - but this is actually really cool".

I'm here tonight and tomorrow night - then back out to SFO on Monday. Tuesday I head to Hong Kong, stay overnight and fly back Thursday.

Later on Thursday my parents fly into Seattle from Adelaide (Australia) for a week to visit, so I'll definitely be in Seattle with Allison for their visit. Then, they head up to Canada and I head back out on the road...

This is a very busy few weeks for DaveMacMS...

Cheers, Dave.

Yup, took an American colleague who's never been to Sydney before over to Manly on the ferry for breakfast today. Good times.

Interesting, that is a pretty awesome promotional deal. Give someone a gadget that is their's for 16+ hours, then take it away when they really enjoy it! ... nice!! In all seriousness though, that is pretty awesome idea. Kudos

However, for most of those passengers, they can't actually buy the product anywhere but america, and can't get support for it. Does this mean a possible further release of the zune HD???

EDIT: Bet he loved the manly ferry. Whenever I am in Sydney and I catch the ferry, I can't not look at the coathanger/opera house in admiration, so seeing it for the first time would have been pretty awesome.

And I want your job. Just sayin'

Actually, I'm going to be at the Kangaroo & Kiwi pub in Seattle to watch the grand final this Friday night (Seattle time). Just as long as I can get out of Australia, over to Hong Kong, and back to Seattle in time...

Cheers, Dave.

ROFL. Nah, the overwhelming influence on the pub is Aussie, not Kiwi. As it should be.

Cheers, Dave.
