A stylish camera strap? You heard us right.

It’s been a long time since I’ve carried around my SLR, but one thing was certain when I did that I learned from my shutterbug friends: Never use it without a camera strap. With that in mind, just look at these gorgeous camera straps I found that are so pretty, they could pass as a fashion statement without the camera attached. These beautiful Bloom Theory camera straps really do look more like necklaces, except instead of a pendant, your precious SLR camera dangles safely at the bottom. I’ve got my eye on Creme Brulee, though I’m kind of digging the sparkly Stardust...

You don’t have to be a math lover to appreciate a smart play on words, printed on a 100% cotton onesie using water-based inks. Given all the “My daddy’s a hunk” shirts, we figure geek moms and...

As a frequent social media user (who isn’t these days?), I’ve often wondered about what all my tweets, posts, and status updates say about me.

All you have to do is apply the adhesive decal to the back of your iPhone 4. Though keep in mind, these skins don’t actually protect your iPhone, just make it look cooler. I can only...

Shazam your way through the Super Bowl Commercials

As a music buff, I was an early adopter of the Shazam app, which allows you to easily identify song titles and artists just by holding up your phone to the music. But for tonight’s Super Bowl, you can actually use the Shazam app to do a whole lot more, like unlock new advertising experiences which could lead you to win huge prizes. Like a car. (Yes, a car.) While Shazam had their first “Shazamable” ad in 2010, this year, they’ve partnered with big gun advertisers like Pepsi, Disney, and Toyota, just to name a few. App users will...
