Every time I wander aimlessly through Best Buy perusing all the fun techie gadgets, I always linger a bit longer when passing by the Philips Hue Lighting System display.  The pretty colors, the dimmable mood lighting, the endless possibilities…it was definitely on my “wish list” of cool gadgets.  Although we inevitably did not go the Philips Hue Lighting route, we did try out the Wink Hub 2.  And it’s awesome! Yes, home automation has been around for quite a while now and yes you may be thinking, “Ok, get with the times already.”  BUT…for someone who has never experienced the amazingness of home automation, it’sRead More →

Apparently, Siri is a little more human than we thought.  After living with Siri for many years now, turns out I know very little about her (or him, if you change the voice style…and now you can select accents, too! Just go to Settings > General > Siri).  Fortunately, as with human relationships, it just takes a few questions to learn more! For example, did you know you could ask Siri to “flip a coin”?  Or “roll the dice”?  And you can decide how many sides there are to the dice that Siri rolls!  Want to know what the latest tweets are from your favoriteRead More →

Every birthday, Christmas, anniversary or Valentine’s Day, I try to give my husband the “best gift ever”…well, that is until the next gift-giving day rolls around.  And then I’ve got to top myself with an even best-er gift ever, which then creates the vicious cycle I’ve been in for years now!  And I’ve loved every minute of it.  I’m always thinking, planning, brainstorming, researching on what the next crazy awesome gift might be.  And this past Christmas, I was once again successful.  Because what’s the one thing a man in his 30’s would want more than anything else for Christmas??  That’s right, video games!! ButRead More →

As the summer is slowly winding down, I find myself eagerly anticipating the fall. Cooler weather, leaves changing colors, holidays with family and of course…Apple releasing a newer iPhone! Speculation has been swirling about the next release and all the features it might bring. But my biggest question is, “Are you people gonna fix the ‘Bendgate’ craziness?!” I tend to avoid reading too much about what people think will be in the new release because with Apple, you really never know. And I would rather avoid the extreme disappointment I would feel if Apple ended up not adding the feature to allow Siri to singRead More →

I just climbed El Capitan mountain in Yosemite…from my couch!  Not possible, you say?  Google says otherwise. Starting today, Google Map users can “climb” The Nose and Dawn Wall routes of El Capitan right from their computer.  Just head on over to Google Maps and use the Street View to scale the mighty mountain without breaking a sweat (well, unless you look at it from your Texas apartment in the dead heat of summer while your A/C is broken…then it’s just Sweat City 24/7 regardless of Google’s attempts at convenience). And check out the cool video below of the people that did the actual climbing of the mountain whileRead More →

Man, am I glad that Stuart didn’t know about this when we were in the seventh grade together.  He was the resident school bully, always looking for ways to make my already difficult middle school existence even more challenging.  If this little tool was around back then and in his hands, it would have been “goodbye Cali” and “hello foreign exchange student program”.  But, thankfully, my dependence on the good ol’ Master Combination Lock that I used on my school locker was secure, along with my lunch, gym clothes and that note I passed to Jimmy in second period about how much I didn’t like Stuart. Now?  Not so much.Read More →

Well, ok, maybe Google can’t cook up a seven-course meal complete with a nice bottle of red wine and a flaming chocolate soufflé…yet. But they did just add quite the list of new commands. Up until now, we’ve been able to command Google to do a lot of other things in the same Google family of apps. Now they’ve opened it up to developers of other third-party apps. Here’s a great list compiled by Tech Crunch of some of the new apps and command options available: Flixster: “Show me Inception on Flixster.” Instacart: “Show instacart availability.” Lincoln: “Start my Lincoln MKZ.” NPR One: “Listen to NPR.”Read More →

There it is…staring at me…constantly. The little icon on my phone’s mail app notifying me that I have new emails waiting for me to read them. I give my most fervent effort to keeping that number low, but it feels a bit like trying to train my cat to do a cartwheel—futile, at best. I know I’m not alone in this as I look over other people’s shoulders and see their phone’s mail app. “5”…”27”…”43”…or, my personal favorite, the triple digits. I know mom always told me not to compare myself to others, but gosh does it feel good to see someone’s mail app sayRead More →

It was a warm, sunny day and not a cloud in the sky. The birds were serenading me as I excitedly walked up to the door, flung it open and then…the chorus sang. I had arrived at the Apple Store to pickup my iPhone 6. I could barely contain my excitement as I unwrapped the beautiful, shiny new toy that I would inevitably spend hours and hours tapping my little finger on, exploring all the wonders Apple promised me. And as with every technology purchase I make, there was a part of me that kept saying, “Did I choose the right size? The right color?Read More →
