Back to school odds and ends
Posted by Sue
The kids have gone back to school, which means being more relaxed and having more stuff to worry about simultaneously. Right now I am having fun with my new toy, a Flip MinoHD camcorder. The price was right: free! I got it from Amazon’s Vine program, which sends various products for frequent reviewers to test and review. After months of testing out things like fabric softener and vitamin drinks, finally I’ve gotten an electronic goodie. I used the Flip yesterday to shoot a video of a cute stray cat that has been hanging around our deck and befriending my daughter:
The software included with the Flip makes it a breeze to edit and add music. I’ll have to shoot some workout videos soon so I can get my form ripped apart critiqued.
In exergaming news, two exergame blockbusters have announced sequels. Wii Fit Plus, the follow-up to Wii Fit, is going to be released October 4 (Sunday must be Good Luck Day for Nintendo; Wii Sports Resort and the white box itself were both launched on Sundays). WFP, which adds several new activities and workout-course-creating ability to the original game, will sell by itself for $20 or in a balance board bundle for $100. And EA Sports Active has announced that its sequel, More Workouts, will come out on November 17. Active already allows creating courses, but warmups and cooldowns will be added, along with more ab work.
