I am still loving my new Samsung Galaxy SIII, but I need accessories! That was one thing there was never a shortage with when I used the iPhone – tons of accessories. So, are you an SIII user too? Share what accessories you have found that you love. I wish iHome made alarm clock docks for the SIII, are there any other brands that make something like that for this phone? How about some cool cases? Would love some blingy case especially. Continue Reading →

Win a Ford GT….

Yes, that’s right, I’m giving away a Ford GT….ok so it is actually a Ford GT Wireless Computer Mouse – but it still looks cool!   This is from RoadMice.com and they have other makes as well (Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Mercedes, and more). The mouse is wireless – just plug in the dongle into a USB drive on your computer and start clicking. The two from fender areas on the hood are your right and left buttons to click and there is a scroll wheel in the center also. All of them light up too which is very cool. This … Continue Reading →

My own personal Wi-Fi thanks to Verizon Wireless

My own personal Wi-Fi thanks to Verizon Wireless

I need to be connected. Really. Okay, maybe my life does not depend on it kind of need, but honestly for what I do in social media as a job I do need to be connected much of the time. When I travel that can sometimes be an issue. On my last trip, BlogHer ‘12 in New York City, I had my own personal Wi-Fi access thanks to Verizon Wireless and the 4G LTE Jetpack (see the little item in the pink box above) to make my life easier. The Jetpack connects to the same 4G LTE access that a … Continue Reading →
Mom got an iPad

Mom got an iPad

We had our family birthday get together the other day and Mom got herself a new toy. She bought an iPad and she loves it. I knew she would. Here she is using it to take a photo of Colby (my nephew) who was being totally cute, as usual. Mom is going to be my iPad accessory tester too. Occasionally I get goodies for iPads but I do not use one myself (I have a different tablet), so she will be testing them out to put up reviews here on my blog. Cool! Does your mom use technology? A smartphone, … Continue Reading →
Sony SmartWatch Review

Sony SmartWatch Review

As part of the Verizon Insider team (#VZWBuzz) I get a few goodies from time to time. Recently they sent me a Sony SmartWatch. This is an accessory sold at Verizon Wireless stores (online and in person). You use this along with an android smartphone. It allows you to view updates such text messages, Facebook, Twitter, missed calls, etc. on the watch rather than having to dig out your phone all the time. Hubby quickly snapped up this item – he has a thing for watches anyway. The set up process is not overly complicated, but there are many steps … Continue Reading →
Dang I need a new smartphone because…. (giveaway)

Dang I need a new smartphone because…. (giveaway)

You would not believe how often I hear something like that. I also get a lot of folks asking me if I can get them a free phone or a good deal on one since people know I work with brands. I wish I had the power to hand out a new smartphone to everyone who has lost, damaged, or hand their phone swiped, but I cannot sadly. Here at our house we all have smartphones. Guess who has the most trouble with damaging them? Me…..no. Taylor my teenage son……no. Hubby…..YES! Geez he is tough on phones and goes through … Continue Reading →
