A big thanks to Acer for #acerliveblog

So it is back to work after an amazing weekend with the team at Acer and Otto PR as well as all the other bloggers that attended. During the course of the weekend I got to cook a meal with Cooks Academy which was surprisingly good fun, and both the Chefs that ran the night were brilliant and very patient with some/all of us.

On Saturday Acer had us try out some Gaelic Games as well as learning to play the bodhran drum. I was particularly bad at the drum, but I enjoyed playing handball, Gaelic football and hurling. I think we all felt a little sore after that.

Saturday afternoon was spent walking around Dublin completing Acer related tasks including drawing Acer into a pint of Guinness and using their new Iconia One 8 to draw the river Liffy using a pencil as a stylus.

Over the course of the weekend I got to extensively use both the Iconia One 8 and the Liquid Jade Z, as well as some hands on time with the Switch 10E and the Revo One. I will be doing some first impressions and reviews of these over the next day or 2.

I had a great time and would like to extend my thanks to both Acer and Otto.
