GPS Question: What is your first name?

Post by neps » Tue Jun 24, 2008 12:36 pm

Part of the way Mio wants to thank us for helping buzz of their product - they want to make sure our names are in the system. These are first names, not our handles or anything. For example; Bonnie, Wilton and Devon are missing - but so is Neil! And I'm sure others too.

They're working on doing another session with William Daniels for about 100 or so more names and other pickup recordings they need.

So the question I ask is - what is your real first name? (if you dont mind) I'll let you know if it's in there or not, and if it isn't - I will pass it on to Mio.

Sounds good?

Neil

***EDIT: I no longer possess the prototype unit, so I will be unable to verify the names. Feel free to continue to adding yours after checking this list (viewtopic.php?p=137421#p137421)***

My name is lithuanian, so there is no chance that it's in that list, my name is Karolis (English analog is Charles).

I have always preferred my full first name Steven as opposed to Steve. I think both options need to be there though for the ones that prefer the short version as well.

My first name is Tika (pronounced "tee' kah" phonetically).

I usually have to work with computer voices to get them to pronounce my name properly. My laptop being one. It's great to see that they are using William Daniels' own voice for this. Definitely KITT in a box! (Oops... sorry KITT. ;) )

When they get done with that one, can they try getting Peter Cullen to do a KARR? Sorry - couldn't resist! LOL!

My name's Adam. My fiancee was just saying last night how she thought it would be cool to see the GPS system greet you by your real name and sure enough, here's a thread to make sure it gets done! :-D

Crystal

User CK wanted me to submit her name, too, if that's alright. If not, then I apologize in advance.

Cheri (Pronounced Shur-ree.) We doubt it's there, but she wanted me to submit it anyway.

Adam is in there!

So is Crystal!

Cheri is not - but Sherry or Cheryl is

I'm going to most likely give this prototype unit back sometime tomorrow (had it since Saturday) - so get those names in!
