This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved in a technology project run by the security software company Trend Micro, to receive a free iPad and to share your online experiences. The project named Digital Joneses is open to families that enjoy spending time online, whether talking to friends, playing games or testing the latest technology gadgets. The Digital Joneses will show how everyday families use the internet, any problems and issues they face, as well as life changing experiences gained as a result.
The families will be given a number of simple tasks and challenges throughout the year, designed to illustrate how they are using the internet to aid their everyday lives, how they spend their time online, what they enjoy, and what their main concerns are.
The families will also receive a new iPad, a range of security software as well as free identity theft insurance.
"We are looking for ten families from across the UK to act as our eyes and ears on the
ground, to provide insight and feedback on how technology impacts both positively and negatively on their everyday lives" says Karen Hicks, Consumer Product Marketing Manager, EMEA.
You don't need to be a gadget freak or technology geek, although of course you can apply too, and there can even be people who sometimes really struggle with technology.
The decision on the participating families will be made by the end of January, so if you or members of your brood are active online and together as a family are willing to share your digital experiences, visit www.facebook.com/digitaljoneses and the Trend Micro website for an application form, or email email@example.com
