One of my favorite pastimes when I have a moment to indulge is to connect with my Twitter friends from all over the world.  On Thursdays, starting at 10pm EST, you’ll find me under the hashtag #mediachat where journalists converse in 140 characters to learn the latest in traditional and modern media. @newsle I get […]

It’s official. Summer is half over. So before it slips completely away, put down your glass of iced cold lemonade, place your right hand over your heart and repeat after me, “I pledge to make this one of the best, most memorable summers ever.” Well done. Now let’s get started. So you’ve done the picnic […]

Give dad a big surprise this Father’s Day by training SIRI on his iPhone to refer to him by a new name. Try out “Handsome,” “Big Strong Muscle Man,” “Sex Machine,” “Honey Bunny,” “Grizzly Bear” or whatever secret pet name you have for your man. First, make sure he has himself listed in his Contacts.

With one click, I was logged in through facebook and able to […]

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. And while many moms are happy with the traditional bouquet of flowers, favorite fragrance or proverbial box of chocolates, here are a few suggestions that step it up for the mom on top of tech. Why should the boys have all the fun? If your hubby hints at […]

It’s probably a good thing we only have one child. Because I just can’t imagine packing for anymore than him and myself— and I undoubtedly always forget something. Like his underwear in Hawaii. Or enough long-sleeved shirts in Canada. My husband insists on packing for himself, always has what he needs, and it all shockingly […]

Celebrities have been reaching out to fans through the likes of facebook, twitter and other social media communities for quite some time. But lately, they’ve gotten savvy and are starting to capitalize on their huge audience followings by creating their own community sites with offerings like music downloads, ticket purchase and live chat, just for starters.

No doubt, I go through an extraordinary number of mobile apps, testing them out, keeping  a handful, then falling in and out of love. One app that’s withstood the test of time and handsdown keeps my attention monthly is a fairly simple application called BillMinder.  For $1.99 in the iTunes app store, it lets you […]
