Nintendo DS

I have always been a fan of Nintendo products and have my own personal experiences. For you parents out there, having a portable game system that kids can recharge(batteries), was an ingenious idea. The DS is light and very easy to use and great for trips in the car. You certaintly don't hear, "Are we there yet?"

I myself own a pink one, a gift from my husband. I also enjoy the Pokemon versions of games. However, Nintendo does an assorted array of video games for a slew of interests…

"Navi", our British tour guide...

One of my best purchases has been a Garmin navigation system, which we use in our recently purchased Honda Oddyssey minivan. The minivan could have come with a factory installed navigation system, which I believe would have been about $1,500. Stop right there, already I've identified the first thing I love about our Garmin....it was only $300, so it saved us lots of money (I believe the model we bought now sells for as low as $150). Despite this huge reduction in cost, quality or features…

Me and my cell phone

My cell phone is a wonderful gadget with so much hidden potential. The truth is, though, I only know how to make calls. I don't even have phone numbers programmed into it! The good news is I have a great memory for numbers so if I've called you once chances are I can remember your number. I guess my phone is a camera too but only by chance have a snapped a shot of my kids when I've managed to hit the "take picture button". I feel as if I'm confessing some embarrassing secret but I just am not a… Continue

My new family member - the Garmin navigation system

My best friend bought me the system for Mother's Day. It was the best gift ever! I recently moved to a new state and this system has saved me so much grief. I don't have to go a website and print out directions (saves trees) and if I make a wrong turn, she (of course she's a woman), she redirects me. When I'm traveling I can find a place for food or the specific gas station I want to go to. Its hard to imagine life before Navi (that's her name). Its also great b/c its so user friendly and not… Continue

GPS - How did I live without it?

I purchased my first GPS about 18 months ago -- a Garmin Street Pilot 330. It changed my life. I was fairly new to my community and was forever getting lost. I spent $400 and felt it was worth every penny. Features seemed endless -- wherever I was I could find the closest ATM, Quiznos or Mobil station. The other feature I depended on was the estimated arrival time. When I was running late I would enter my destination, even if I knew how to get there, so that I could relax and slow down. The… Continue

Dog-Walking Tehnology Surpassing Home Technology?

It appears to me that dog-walking technology has surpassed home technology. I say this as I look around my kitchen and see electrical cords bunched up in rubber bands. I am someone who can devour home décor magazines and I love HGTV (my one and only television vice). I never see electrical cords bunched up with rubber bands in these pristinely designed settings. Now, I’ll be the first to say that I have some…
