I am always surprised when I discover something that I can do different and make life easier at the same time. Normally on Sundays during football season I will sit in front of my television and on my computer and watch the game. Today I decided to do something different and sit in the recliner and watch the game.
All of a sudden I got up and got my new iPad and hooked up Hootsuite and had my Falcon Twitter account fired up and ready to interact with Falcon fans. I was able to actually watch a whole game without getting distracted by work. It was rather nice change of pace. The game was very enjoyable and with no distractions I found myself actually enjoying the game more.
Last week I had Directv upgrade my satellite box with a dvr. Before the game I set the receiver to record the game and allow it to record for an extra half hour since most games run longer than advertised. Some day this week I will fire up the game again while I am working and have it on in the background. I am sure it will make my work day go a little faster, especially since the Falcons won the game.
I was very hesitant to spend money on a DVR or an iPad but life is short and you might as well spent money on stuff you are going to use and enjoy.
