FIFA promises goal line technology for World Cup Brazil 2014

FIFA has promised goal line technology for the World Cup Brazil 2014

FIFA has promised goal line technology for the World Cup Brazil 2014. It has been two years since FIFA began testing goal-line technology (GLT). Sports Techie was launched in time for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. I founded Sports Techie three years ago and remember blogging and tweeting about FIFA’s “Stone Age” mentality towards implementing tech into the beautiful game of football. And then Frank Lampard’s disallowed goal in the England vs. Germany game happened… Since then, FIFA’s aim is to use GLT in order to support the match officials and to install a system in all stadia, pending the successful installation, and pre-match referee tests.

The Lenovo G580 Ideapad laptop with Windows 8

The Sports Techie Lenovo Ideapad customer service experience was far below average.

When you are gifted a new Lenovo G580 Idea pad laptop, the Sports Techie community expectation is that it works out-of-box, or else will be fixed or replaced. I believe the Better Business Bureau calls it the “lemon law.” I decided to write a blog about the Lenovo customer service experience I had several weeks ago not so much as to bash on Lenovo because I like them. My Ideapad is now fixed and operating well. I also like their sports business relationships as the official computer sponsor of the NFL and with endorser, RGII, the Washington Redskins quarterback...
