Taking Control of The Program...

Today I feel so much pride in taking control of the programs I watch. I recall years earlier how I would have to rush home to catch my favorite shows, Family Feud, The Amazing Race, Under Cover Boss, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, or my favorite Spanish Telenovelas on Univision. I was always in a rush to watch  live programming because I can experience it with my friends and family and we could talk about it and be…

A Trip Planned with an iPhone

In December, my family of four headed out on a spontaneous two week road trip from Arizona to Washington. We packed the mini-van, strapped our two young daughters in their car seats, and hit the pavement to California. We had little plans, no overnight arrangements besides the first night in L.A., and limited funds.



But what we did have was two trusty iPhones at our sides. For two weeks, we tapped buttons on our phones that helped us navigate the Pacific Coast Highway (Maps app),… Continue

TV Watching Habits

Ever since I discovered Netflix I have been hooked. I rarely watch regular cable television anymore, not only do I enjoy Netflix my kids love it. There are so many choices for the kids to watch such as; movies, cartoons to films that relate to young teens. I especially enjoy Netflix because I have been able to see movies that have not been released in theaters and that I probably wouldn't haven't watched otherwise. I tend to watch movies on the weekend with the family to catch up from the…

Crossing the TV Divide

I currently live in a quiet town in Westchester County, NY in a single-family home. Having previously resided in Manhattan for close to 15 years, I live mostly in my bedroom and media room. I have varied devices in the room - LG HD TV, DVR, Wi-Fi router, Microsoft Surface book, iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch.  I tend to multi-task frequently so I am always using my iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or laptop while…

Vacation with the Garmin

Our Garmin has prevented many arguments in the car and has become an essential item to take along with us on vacation. However, we would have been better off if we just left it at home when we went on our most recent vacation to Arizona. We landed into Phoenix very late leaving my family itching to tuck into the beds at our rental house an hour or two outside of the city. We got our rental car, punched in the address into the Garmin, and departed for the house which was located in a relatively… Continue

Viewing My Way! English & Spanish Programming

If you asked me a year ago about my TV watching habits my answer would have been different then today. I would have never imagined that I would watch less TV yet more of the programming I like, or that I could live without cable. Yes, I finally cut the cord and got rid of the dusty yet expensive cable boxes. It's been 6 months since I got rid of cable. I thought that i could not do it. I thought that I would miss the box atop of my tv, but, now i've realized that I do not miss it at…

Nintendo Wii - Is it any better than the traditional video game systems??

Against my better judgement (and without my knowledge) our family recently got a Nintendo Wii. It was a famiy Christmas gift from my mother-in-law...need I say more?? We have let our 4 kids have almost no video game exposure until now. They are ages 10,6,3 and 8 mths. I have always been especially worried about our boys becoming obsessed with video games because I know how addicting they can be. I also felt like once they were in the house it would be too hard to impose limits restricting when… Continue

Blackberry BOLD - to get or not to get?

I've read all kinds of literature pertaining to Blackberry devices since RIM came out with the extremely useful, attractive line of devices. I am a self-confessed techno-geek, having been exposed in the family business of telecommunications. I would get a new cellphone to try out, use and keep each month and it was an exciting time. Now that I'm in luxury cosmetics, I get perks totally different from before -- and I'd have to think twice, study every review available and get feedback from… Continue

Family Protection for Social Networks

Well publicized stories of cyber-bullying, stalking, or other types of dangerous social networking related incidents contribute to present day parental angst. As if it weren’t hard enough to keep them safe social sites, like Facebook, provide access to kids and their public information 7x24. It is unfortunate that software companies seem to be in perpetual catch-up mode but, progress has been made with regard to social networking… Continue

Protecting Online Photos

Stories abound of pictures being ‘borrowed’ from online family albums or Facebook for various fraudulent purposes. There was the Massachussetts mother who found their child’s photo on a Craig’s list adoption scam and numerous cases of… Continue

Family Friendly Technology Needs-My Two Cents

On the note of family freindly technology, I would like the following wish list:



1-The ability to read my childrens cell phone text messages and be emailed or text'd when a x rated word is used.



Accidentally, I found some poor unforunate girl's texts to my son that showed her efforts to enlighten my son on things of the sexual matter. He said she was this "nasty" girl who won't stop texting him and he ignores her. I had to send her a text asking her to leave my son alone… Continue

TV Watching as a Mom

As a mom tv watching in my household is very limited. I also find that watching tv in itself has evolved. For the most part, I find that instead of spending countless hours in front of the tv soaking in hours of programming we are now on-the-go and choosing what we want to watch and when. There's also so much content available and ways to obtain it that it can be quite overwhelming.

While at home I am constantly multi-tasking while preparing a meal for my family, organizing the home,…

Pure Networks Speed Meter Pro

As a father of three I have assumed many roles, one of them is ‘IT Dad’. While supporting an average of five computers on the wireless home network I have developed a keen sense for when things are going well, …or not. I have learned that there is an unmistakable sound that almost always coincides with a computer or network problem. It sounds something like this, “Daaaaaad, something is wrong with my stupid computer”.

This is when the troubleshooting and interrogation commence. I ask the… Continue

Happy Streaming Kids in Control...

"The kids have taken control of their own programming", I said to my husband, yet, he looked at me with a no surprise look on his face. "They now want a larger tv in their room because the 40 inch Roku TV they now find it to be too small to watch their favorite programming", I continued. Although my husband thinks nothing about my kids programming habits or their wants, I've realized that in the past few years the kids, boys age 3 and…

New Logitech Products Help Us Laptop Loungers

I admit it. There are times I like to recline while I type on the laptop. I spend A LOT of time using the computer and managing my virtual life online, and while most of the time that means sitting at a desk, there are other times I am sitting in the family room or even lying on the couch, usually with a throw pillow being used as a platform. Variety is the spice of life I guess.



There are two problems with this. First, I find it hard to… Continue

Gaga Over Google

A dear friend of mine has often been quoted to say "If only Google could run this country, we'd be golden". And who could argue with that? The plethora of free products and simplified technologies that Google offers has rocked my mama-world in more ways than one.



First of all, Google Reader (along with iGoogle) changed my life. I went from clicking on dozens of blogs each day to having them display easily and accessibly in a tiny little box on my iGoogle home page. This alone saved… Continue
