Judie and I received Huawei Mate 8 smartphones at CES 2016. The phablet is amazing but won’t work with our Apple Watches. We also picked up the amazing Withings Activité Steel Fitness Watch. It’s a great tracker but doesn’t do notifications. Fortunately, the Ditto notifier fills in that gap in a manner that is both inexpensive and discrete.
The Synology DS1515 is an incredibly versatile and powerful NAS. The feature that intrigued me is its ability to be a fully functional surveillance system. The Synology DS1515 sells for $599.99 on Amazon as of the time of this writing.

When a small app company is gobbled up, there are only a few options: the app fits well and expands the breadth of the parent company, or there is technology added to a core product and the product is eventually killed off, or the app just languishes while the new employees are tasked with other projects. Guess where Mailbox falls?

While some people can simply include exercise as part of their healthy lifestyle, most people need more incentive: they need goals, motivation, and a PLAN. Simply tracking isn’t enough, something that Runtastic gets and has implemented in their new Results app. Results delivers focused training plans to help you reach your goals! Online training programs are becoming more and more popular and effective, replacing DVD and old VHS ‘Sweatin’ to…
Halloween is a great excuse to express yourself artistically by wearing fun costumes, carving up pumpkins, and decorating your house. For game retailers, it is yet another excuse for a great sale! And Amazon is doing what it usually does instead of a sale – it is offering a load of games and apps for FREE!
You’re not always going to have your laptop there with you when it’s time to back up those important photos you took over the weekend, so why not try cloud storage? If you’re a fan of the WiFi camera, one thing you’ll rely on is the ability to give serious photographers, especially those of them with two or more cameras, the ability to do away with the gruesome switching of SD…
I remember the days when we had to worry about the ADP person coming in on a Saturday morning to hook up the security in my Mom’s house. Took him all day long, and I’m pretty sure it was expensive.
You know the saying “the best things in life are free?” Well imagine if that was true about money itself. Well not only is it Friday but it’s your LUCKY DAY.
Lets face it, fall is officially here, and summer is behind us. But this doesn’t mean just because you’ll be indoors more often that you shouldn’t continue your quest for fitness. Now you can keep in shape, anywhere you go with the Daily Yoga app.
With plenty of options out there on the market for home security, Swann Communications decided to take it upon themselves to create the do-it-yourself way with their Swann One Smart Home Equipment, and gave us the opportunity to review it!
There are two things that I always have on me: My wallet and my keys. With technology catching up fast, I’m finding less and less use for my wallet, but one thing that I know I will need for at least the next 4-5 years are house keys. And there’s nothing worse than losing those.
One thing that is certain in the App Store, is that there’s no shortage of messaging apps available. But with all of the current ones available, there’s a lack of ways to truly express your emotions, even though the standard emojis. Well that’s where NOD comes into play. Nod is one of the best new apps in the App Store and the entire premise of it is to bring…
As if using the Domino’s iPhone or Android app to order your favorite pie wasn’t easy enough, the company recently added ordering by tweet. Not everyone tweets, but just about everyone (except my mom) texts, and now all it takes to order a pizza by texting is to send a pizza emoji to Domino’s.
Summer is already in full swing, and with 90 degree weather and vacations being planned, there’s one thing that’s certain: pictures will be taken. But we’ve all been there where we’ve taken a photo and family or friends say “Oh! Send me that!” Luckily for you, there’s an app that’s here to put you ahead of that moment.
Most of us hate trying to sell things online. There’s been many cases where I’ve attempted to sell things and the buyer backs out, or I’m too afraid that the person might not be as legit as I think. Thus you have to play a guessing game when meeting in a public place to sell that lovely dining room table that won’t fit into your new place. Well now there’s…
When I reviewed Inbetween Land for iPad more than two years ago, I echoed sentiments from the Mac review-it was a game I liked but did not love, a fun experience that didn’t match the quality of other G5 releases. But it is still a solid and fun game, and this week it is FREE on all platforms!
For what it’s worth, I’ve always enjoyed writing. So when I had the opportunity to review the Neo Smartpen N2, a digital pen that connects to Evernote, I was excited.
