I am happy to report that it is officially fall in Vermont, the maple leaves are approaching peak color, pumpkins are appearing at farm stands, and the local ski areas received their first snowfall last night. A bunch of us who work for Small Dog are winter sports enthusiasts and are counting the days until the ski areas and snowmobile trails open for the season.
Apple has made updates to the iPod lineup since the last issue of Best in Showroom and the staff favorite turns out to be the new 5th generation iPod nano. The new updated nano includes a built-in video camera, a larger screen and an FM receiver. It is truly amazing that Apple has been able to include a video camera in a device as small as the new nano. Ed, one of our marketing and design managers, recently compared the new nano video to a Flip video camera; check the comparison out here.
Halloween falls on a Saturday this year so we have decided to hold our annual Halloween contest a day early on Friday 10/30. Each year, our customers are invited to vote on the best costumes and each year our staff and their dogs try to outdo each other. It has become customary for our graphics team to dress up those staff members who forget to participate in extra special Photoshopped costumes. We invite you come back to our website on Friday October 30th to vote for your favorite costumes—there will be a prize or two involved!
Today marked the first day of our new fiscal year, and that means out with the old, and in with the new. We’re gearing up for a busy fall—the Valley is already buzzing with annual “leaf peepers” who are in town to witness the official change of season. Come in for a visit!
