“Seriously Honey!?” I asked my equally geek counterpart. Who accidentally drives over their old iPhone the day before the release of the new iPhone 5? “I guess I’ll just have to get a new one.” Some people, like my husband, are going to extremes to get the new iPhone 5. He set his alarm for […]

Today’s the day! I’ve been trying since 12:01 pm EST to order one online. But apparently there is a “busy” signal at the apple site. So if someone would like to send me one for **FREE** I’ll be happy to review it ; ) Meanwhile, for those still debating, here’s a handy chart to see […]

You got to admit, Apple-philes speak a language all their own. As stock prices continue to skyrocket in favor of the i(anything), it appears the rumor holds true: Once you go Apple, you’ll never go back… Here is just a smattering of how to chat up an Apple fan. And yes, we too are guilty […]

Astonishing Macro Photography trending on #MacroMonday yesterday from Google+. No one warned me about the addictive nature of photography, especially when it comes to lenses. I figured one camera body and one lens would be all I ever needed.  Soon, I realized the power and the difference that variable focal lengths make in your shot. For […]

I’ve been using the Zagg iPad keyboard since May when my equally self-proclaimed tech-geek husband presented it to me on Mother’s Day.

After much experimentation last night, I got a few shots and pointers worth posting. DSLR TIPS 1. You definitely need a tripod. 2. If you […]

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.

When my husband was publicly eyeing the very gift I had wrapped up for him for Father’s Day, I did my usual frowney eyebrow scowl and said “Hey, I already got that for you for Father’s Day!” Guess it was my ego speaking, but  I wanted the credit for coming up with it on my […]

After stewing over this much-needed-to-be-written post on Father’s Day picks for nearly a week now, I finally handed the assignment to my hubby, the ultimate gift-chooser for choosing gifts for himself.
