Funky weight loss gadgets to jump start the New Year

Recently I wrote about my favorite fitness app to help me jumpstart my New Year’s health and fitness plan along with pretty much the rest of the country.

Teach your home how to heat or cool itself with the Nest Learning Thermostat

Tell me if this one sounds familiar: you come home from a long day at work to an empty house, only to find that the heat has been blasting away all day long because you forgot to turn it down.  You might as well take a $20 out of your pocket and light it on [...]


Touch screens coming to your steering wheel?

What would you say is probably the #1 piece of advice given to 15-year-olds in Driver’s Ed?  I’m guessing “keep your eyes on the road” is probably right up there.  This advice is especially important today now that cell phones and other gadgets compete for so much of our attention as we’re driving.  To help [...]


Looking For A Job? 5 Apps To Help Make It Easier

Let’s face it- looking for a job would probably land in the same category as getting a cavity filled or renewing your driver’s license.

Instaprint brings back the good old days of Polaroids

I’ve often wondered if one day there will be a self-help group for those addicted to Instagram, based off the extreme popularity of the photo app.  Thanks to Instagram and smartphones, we are now graced with pictures on blogs and social networking sites of every event attended, item purchased, meal prepared, and vacation milestone of [...]


Videos battle for votes on YouTube Slam

As if it isn’t already easy enough to waste a few hours on [...]


Baby-proof your iPhone with the Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case

Have a little one?  Have an iPhone?  Ever noticed how babies are drawn to iPhones like a moth to a flame, but really are about as compatible as oil and water? The drooling, the dropping, the accidentally calling your boss or 911…yikes.  Fortunately Fisher Price caught on to this and created the Laugh & Learn [...]


Functional Jewelry: Ring Transforms Into a Headset

Bluetooth headsets changed the way we were able to use mobile phones, allowing for hands free talking while we drove, shopped, ate, cleaned, and took care of our daily lives.  I remember my husband bought me a Bluetooth headset when our daughter was first born, allowing me to have free hands to care for her [...]


Straight from the Bat Cave: ArmStar BodyGuard provides superhero protection and a handy iPhone dock

We love ZAGG because it keeps our iPhones safe from harm.  But what if the product surrounding your phone could keep you safe from harm?

How To Use My Fitness Pal To Help With That New Year’s Resolution

It’s about that time again.  We’ve spent the last month gorging ourselves on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, eggnog, booze, and cookies and baked goods as far as the eye can see.  I don’t know about you, but my pants are feeling a bit tighter than I’d like them to.  Bring on the New [...]
