MSNBC.com has announced the launch of Digital Life, found within the site's Tech & Science section. This new, interactive lifestyle technology subsection is designed to allow users to enter a digital representation of various living spaces in the home and discover the way technology has transformed each.
From May 2005 through April 2006, MSNBC.com's Digital Life will include news and reviews for lifestyle technology related to living rooms, outdoor entertainment, kids and dorms, kitchens, home offices, holiday gift giving, and more. Digital Life features trends in entertainment and lifestyle technology, bringing together product reviews, editorials, and news features that showcase technology, and the way it has affected life in and around the home. Columnist Michael Rogers will write special reports each month about different spaces where individuals use technology to entertain and inform. Detailed product reviews will accompany the monthly reports providing access to both editorial and consumer information from within the featured living space image.
When entering Digital Life in May, for example, users will see an interactive representation of a technologically well-equipped living room. Scroll over any of the technology within, and further information including different product choices, product reviews and advice on finding affordable products is available. Digital Life is exclusively sponsored by Best Buy, through an 11-month agreement with exclusive advertising rights.
