My Winning Shot - Seize the Day - HP Ink Advantage

With school on the roll, I’m pretty sure schoolchildren are hard at work with their studies and projects. I was suddenly reminded of this when I got invited to Seize the Day with HP Ink Advantage Printers Press Event held last Saturday, July 27 at Paradizoo Theme Farm. I was with the press and fellow bloggers and kids. We had a brief technology update from HP Philippines’ Ms Tina Santos where we learned about the HP Ink Advantage Printers highlighting the HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 3515, 5525 and 6525.

It’s one of the inspiring animation movie I’ve seen and its worth watching by kids and adults alike. But one interesting thing that I learned was that DreamWorks’ animation on “Turbo” was rendered on HP. I have to admit that when we talk about film production and animation, I would always think it was done on a Mac. To know that HP technology was used on cutting-edge animation like Turbo was surprising. Not that HP is lesser than any other tech companies, but primarily because HP has been synonymous to business use having used HP workstations at work and having seen bosses using HP laptops. But come to think of it, HP is one of the pioneers ...
