Technology blog gdgt (say it like “gadget”) is hosting VIP & press preview hours for swanky new gadgets, and they want AARP members there. Badly.
See, here’s the thing: the 22-year-olds might be the first in line for a new smartphone, but the 62-year-olds are the ones carrying the wallet. Plus, they’ve been around the block a time or two, and they’ve got a good idea what works and what’s just hot air and flimflammery.
The first event is in Chicago at the Tribune Building this Friday; the second in New York City on June 25 to kick off Consumer Electronics Week. We’ll post details for NYC when we have them… in the meantime, here’s the link to RSVP for Chicago.
Where: The Tribune Building, 435 N Michigan Ave, Chicago
When: Friday, May 11th – AARP Member/VIP access: 6:00 to 7:00pm
General Access: 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Why: Because we know you love gadgets as much as we do!
