We’ve Got the Perfect Gift for Dad this Father’s Day (and for you, too): Buy One ūmi, Get One Free

Undoubtedly, the best way to spend Father’s Day with dad is at one of his favorite places.  We always have a big family dinner. What are your traditions?  Do you go hiking?  Go to the movies?  Sit at home and watch golf?  Regardless, there’s nothing like making dad feel like a king for a day doing whatever he likes to do best.

For those of us who don’t live close to home, technology is bringing us closer than ever before so that we can spend time with dad face-to-face.  Sure, we can’t eat his famous burgers virtually (not yet at least) but we can catch up and tell him we love him through video calling.  And with Cisco ūmi, you can tell him Happy Father’s Day from your couch in high-def on your HDTV.

As a thanks to dads all over the U.S., we’re offering you the perfect Father’s Day present: when you buy one ūmi, you get one free.  Click on a logo below to start shopping:

But hurry up.  This great deal ends on June 19, 2011.

You thought that was it?

I Look Better in High-Def

Last week, I received an early Christmas present! Geek Squad came to set-up my Cisco ūmi at my condo and they were literally in and out in less than 30 minutes!

They walked me through set-up and I already immediately knew what my favorite feature was going to be….”Record a video.” Immediately after they left, I started taping personal video messages and sharing them with my friends via email.

Later that evening, my girlfriend and I were going out to dinner and right when she walked in the door I asked her to tape a personal video message with me so we could play it back later. She came over the next day and we played it back and laughed at ourselves and remembered how much fun we had the night before.

EXCLUSIVE: Cisco ūmi Takes Daytime Center Stage

Did anyone have the opportunity to see Cisco ūmi’s introduction on The Oprah Winfrey Show on November 3rd? If not, we’ve got a quick recap!

Last month, Oprah and her best friend Gayle used Cisco ūmi to reconnect with the people they met on their camping trip to Yosemite National Park. With ūmi, Oprah and Gayle engaged with two families, eight members in each family sitting on sofas in their living rooms. Eight people captured on one telepresence camera? You bet! Not only did the families fit nicely on the TV’s flat screen, but they showed up in high-def!

See how people are sharing their stories using Cisco ūmi on their HD television from their living room connecting to The Oprah Winfrey Show studio.

Cisco ūmi: What are you thankful for?

Fall is in full swing, and the year is winding down.  You can just feel it.  The first snow flurries are beginning to cover the leaf piles in the Northeast.  The Chicago winds are whipping off Lake Michigan, sending chills down the spines of Bears Fans.  And out here in the Bay Area, well, summer is setting in up North in San Francisco.  I still can’t get over how that seems to happen every year…75 degrees in November!

And while much of the country might be winding down for winter, things are just starting to heat up for Cisco ūmi and the great team we have over here.  It’s been a little over a month since the launch and we have so much to be thankful for this year.  Cisco ūmi systems are shipping to customers who pre-ordered them, and they are now available at Magnolia locations through Best Buy.

Tomorrow is the first Thanksgiving that families and friends from coast-to-coast will be able to sit down– together –and give a live holiday toast for that most famous of meals with ūmi.
