Did I mention....I LOVE my iphone!

It has become the most valued piece of technology I own. It feels like there isn't anything, except maybe put the kids to bed - that I can't use my iphone for. I depend on it for so many day-to-day needs that I can hardly remember life without it. Most of the time it is looking up information on the web, from how to remove glue from hair to what is a timber rattlesnake. Keeping projects moving forward while I am running errands or away from home has also become invaluable. I recently spent 4+… Continue

A New Framework for Getting It Right with Tech Products

As I continue my never-ending research for our new upcoming report on Internet-connected audio-video technologies and devices, I keep thinking one thing— I’m not that smart.

Not that I am dumb. No, not that. It’s just that there is so much technical mumbo-jumbo to process. Everyone has an argument why their technology or product is better than the next guy’s. And many times, it has to do with some special sauce they have that no one else has. But I am encouraged by an equally strong… Continue
