Only while all my friends were getting the latest and greatest, being CD players, my Dad came home with this.
When my friends came over I was mortified, and used to be all "Oh that old thing? It was out in the garage, but Dad brought it in" not wanting to admit he actually paid money for the huge box that couldn't even play a CD.
Still, I sat by it late at night on the weekends taping songs from the radio that I would play all week.
I still snuck my parents Journey records out, and configured some seriously cool, and lame dance routines to songs like Open Arms bossing my sister around until she got it right.
And would you know it, the thing only died a little before Greenie was born. That huge embarrassment, like a ball and chain was there, kickin' on for 15 years. And trust me, my sister and I did not treat it with the care my dad insisted of us.
Now Sharp is turning 100 on September 15th. Can you believe it? Has technology really been around that long?
To celebrate, because everyone should throw a birthday bash if they make it to 100, Sharp are making us, the consumers a promise "To continue offering you quality products and services that grab your heart." But that's not all.
Share a video of you celebrating something special in your life over on share.sharp100years.com/ and you go in the draw to win a trip to the west coast of the United States or some Sharp products. How easy is that?
I know we all grab our camera's to record those special moments. Now all you have to do is choose one, send it in, and watch it be made into a work of film that will be displayed on the website during the campaign.
Ticking the five minutes of fame goal off my to do list right now.
Also from now until September 15th Sharp are donating the proceeds from every purchase of AQUOS TV and Plasmacluster generator/air purifier to support health programs such as vaccinations for children. We all know that health care shouldn't even be a question when it comes to children. It should be given in abundance. Well Sharp want to give back to all of those who have purchased their products over the years by creating a better life for all.
I'm all about the bigger picture.
Do you have any Sharp memories growing up?
