The review never happened, but four months later, Mashable posted about Gingrich visiting a zoo while wearing Google Glass, and he retweeted it. It was a gentle reminder. A nudge. Hey, remember me? Remember that time you said you'd write a review for us?
In 2015, Gingrich visited Facebook and tried Oculus Rift, the virtual reality headset and loved it. "The implications for education and entertainment will be enormous," he wrote in a post on his Web site. Mashable again wrote about Newt's adventure in tech. The lede: "Newt Gingrich should be writing tech reviews." Gingrich again said that he would. But did he mean it this time?
Mashable tried to close the deal.
Assignment? Have your pick.
And it worked. Gingrich picked A, the Apple Watch.
So finally, after two years of flirting, Gingrich will review something for Mashable. Anything can happen if you believe. Follow your dreams.
