You really just don't hear enough about the Hanson brothers these days, save for their appearance on VH1 One Hit Wonders list and the occasional award show. In fact, I didn't even realize how much I'd missed ironically singing their "MMMBop" song (or maybe I wasn't being ironic) with my girlfriends until I read their answers to the Switched Questionnaire about technology.
Apparently, the bros are grown up, have a new sound, self-released album and the youngest of the trio Zac Hanson - pictured at left - is almost a geek. I say almost because he doesn't quite match the geekiness of Hilary Duff. Highlights include:
- What's the longest time you've ever spent playing a video game in one sitting and what game was it?
I played Final Fantasy X for 10 hours when I first got it.
- What cell phone do you have right now and what do you love/hate about it?
I have the BlackBerry 7130c. I hate the scroll wheel. I am left handed but the scroll wheel is on the right side.
- Name one thing you wish your iPod/cellphone/laptop (any gadget) could do that it doesn't do now?
Make me coffee, and tone my abs.
- Blackberry, Sidekick, or Treo?
BlackBerry. Being able to sent a PIN message to someone and know they will get it in 3 secs is pretty cool.
- Are you getting an iPhone? If so, why?
Yes. I have a MacBook Pro, and the iPhone will be the best Phone to sync with all of my programs. Also Apple stuff rocks, so the more of its products I can use, the better.
