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

New Verizon Wireless In-Home Display Phone Product Dubbed “Verizon Hub” Debuts

This new Verizon Wireless product (www.VerizonWireless.com/Hub), rather generically referred to as the “Verizon Hub”, signals and confirms two things. The first is confirmation of some consumers choosing their cellular service over landline service as their primary phone service in the home. The second is consideration of the primary phone device, the “hub” phone in effect, as potentially being located where it is most used or needed. In many… Continue

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…

What is the future of location based services?

Everything today is in context. You can't read a news story, talk to a neighbor, watch a sporting event, or plan a vacation without understanding context. Who you are. Where you want to go. Your habits. Your friends and family. Finances. You name it.

 

So it is no surprise that advertisers for a long time have figured out that understanding the context of their target audience is worth more to them that just a static list of names and addresses. And in today's mobile world,…

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…

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…

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

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

Family-Friendly Technology NEEDED!

I agree with Ellen Bonner's posting that requests more E rated Playstation games. In addition to that, all those responsible for getting any kind of technology into the hands of consumers need to be more sensitive to those of us who do not wish to expose our young children to the excess of sexuality and violence that our culture has become immune to.



A couple of years ago, I got a new cell phone from Verizon. It took a very short amount of time for my then 7-year old to discover the… Continue

Cutting the Cable Cord... But Not Just Yet

Since five children and four televisions have entered our home over the last eight years we have decided to cut the cord that I may find most difficult. The cord I am referring to is the cable cord that feeds our television the much needed nutrients of content (100s of channels).



Let me indulge myself with a little reminiscing from the good old days of TV time with the family. I grew up watching television with my mom, dad and brother. It was an event each night that we all looked… 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

The Picture Phone

When I was a kid, the futuristic vision of telecommunications was the picture phone. We'd all be able to hear and see whoever we were talking to. The traditional phone company may have introduced such a device but I never heard about it...and it was Ma Bell (AT&T or BellSouth) who I had always considered the phone company.



Several months ago, I finally ditched my landline in favor of my… 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,…
