The Power Of Connectivity And Taking A Break

Apr 19, 14 The Power Of Connectivity And Taking A Break

Posted by in Lifestyle, Technology

It was about a month ago on a Sunday that I took a break. It wasn't by choice. I was exercising in my family room when I heard beeping about ever 30 seconds.

ToneFone Builds Definition While Texting

Mar 21, 14 ToneFone Builds Definition While Texting

Posted by in Health, Technology

Mar 15, 14 Hasbro To Update Scrabble Vocabulary, At Last

Posted by in Gaming

I may be one of the few people who didn't play Scrabble much growing up. So for me the image of the word game remains stuck in time.

For Want Of A Lost iPad

Nov 25, 13 For Want Of A Lost iPad

Posted by in Technology

We get very attached to our gadgets, and the iPad is very high on the list. I think some people would be less upset of they lost their wallet or expensive watch than an iPad. Other tablets come close, but the iPad is the apple of a gadget-lover's eye. That's why my mother-in-law was devastated when she returned home from her Caribbean cruise and couldn't find her iPad mini.
