Dreidels go high tech for Hanukkah

One of my family's favorite Hanukkah traditions is a rousing game of Dreidel. (I swear, I'm not just in it for the chocolate gelt!) Each year, we search for the perfect dreidel that spins just right, and we've ended up with quite a collection. But I have to say, my...

Well slap me silly

I am surely dating myself here when I confess that I had me one impressive collection of slap bracelets circa 1989. They were about a buck each at CVS as I recall, and it was nearly as savvy an allowance expense as four games of Donkey Kong or a few cans of New Coke....

Sansa Fuze+ lets you walk and rock at the same tme

My kids are already clamoring over all the toy catalogs that have been coming in the mail, looking wide-eyed page by page at the potential holiday bounty. They're still on the young side to be begging for an electronic device, but portable media players of any kind...

Comic books go green and ultra-portable

I had a boyfriend in college who had boxes upon boxes of his "favorite" comic books. (Which ones were his favorites? All of them!) I found it a little weird, but hey, collectors are kind of different, right?Well, now I have a son who wants to collect comic books. I...

Speakers that are music to a mom’s ears

My son is really into music and I can usually hear it blasting from his room, but the other day I was screaming and screaming...I mean requesting that he make his presence known.No response. I swung open his door and there he was, rocking out with his iPod, headphones...

Portable North Pole app is back with new, better-than-ever features. It’s magical.

The Portable North Pole app and website is hands-down our favorite way for kids to get a chance to talk with Santa. And this year, it's back with new features that make it better than ever. For kids who are clever, curious (and maybe a little doubtful) the elaborate...

Why the new Local app could make you delete Yelp for good.

I admit, Yelp drives me crazy for a number of reasons. And now, just in time for the holiday shopping and travel, comes a truly viable app alternative. Let's say you live in Silverlake, you like comedy shows and galleries, and four of your friends have recently...

The new hi-tech paper planner that’s blowing our minds

Even though I've become a strictly digital planner kind of person, but I do find myself missing paper planners. Well, Moleskine, who's my long-time personal favorite source for old-school paper journals, has a brilliant new solution that's exciting both the geek and...

This app freezes kids’ phones until they answer your texts. Awesome or intrusive?

Does this situation sound familiar, parents? You're trying to get in touch with your tween or teen, but they're ignoring your texts because they're busy playing games on their phone, which also happens to be set on silent. Well, that's what was happening with dad Nick...

TripIt’s new feature makes air travel so much less stressful. We’ll take it!

If you've ever tried dragging a bunch of tired kids and all of their luggage around an airport while searching for a charging port, a snack, or a bathroom -- let alone the gate for the next leg of your flight that boards in five minutes -- you'll know why I'm so happy...

A math app for ninjas

After hours of coaxing without success, I gave up begging my 7 year-old sons to practice math drills on a worksheet and I headed to my iPad. I knew there must be a math app that played like a video game to keep him engaged. And wouldn't you know it, I found it. Math...

Bring your laptop. Leave your charger.

I am almost ashamed to admit the number laptop cords I've gone through over the last few years, but suffice it to say I'm on the lookout for better options. What's really cool is those cords may be obsolete sometime soon. Especially with innovations like solar laptop...

7 of the best shopping sites go mobile

Ever tried to go clothes shopping for yourself with kid(s) in tow? Between toting a toddler while carrying unwieldy hangers, and then attempting to catch a mannequin in mid-air because your little one has pulled its skirt down therefore making it fall over (yes, it...

The stylish stylus

Having always been a gadget girl, I remember experiencing sheer joy in getting my first business-oriented electronic device - a Palm Pilot. The black and white pixilated screen, the cradle you'd rest it in every night to sync, and who could forget the stylus pen. It...

Wee Web – Now a virtual baby record book

Suffice it to say that baby record keeping is not my forte. With four kids to keep track of, I figure it's pretty good if I can remember their birth dates, let alone remind myself to record their first tooth or smile. But thanks to the new features at Wee Web, I'm...

The cat in the app

For the past few months, my kids have been obsessed with an app that has them yelling, singing and -- yes -- screaming at a cat who then repeats everything back to them in his own weird voice. Harmless fun but no redeeming educational value. Or so I thought.Then, at...
