Peace Tech and Harmony

While Cool Mom Tech has now been up and running for a whole month now (whoo!) this past week, we were excited to make things official with a bi-coastal launch party. No easy undertaking, when you consider Liz, Kristen + Beth have 9 children between the three of us,...

Power Up, baby

If you play as much Mario Kart in your house as we do in ours (I mean uh, when we're not listening to NPR) you will probably weep little animated tears of joy at this Power Up onesie I found on etsy. Made by a doting auntie for her future Luigi-loving nephew, the...

Looxcie Ma, no hands!

Having recently armed myself with a video camera packed with the features a mom on the go needs (image stabilization, face capture, full HD, foot rubs on demand) I was ready for every spontaneous moment my kids could dish out. School play? Ready. Winning goal? Ready....

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...

Here’s why the iOS TV app is the best free app that you’re probably not using. Until now.

My family ditched cable a while ago, and now we rely on a variety of apps to watch shows and movies. It's great, but there is one problem: the annoyance of knowing the one movie I want to watch, and having to search through every app individually to find it, that is...

Long live Alexander McQueen. As a laptop case.

As we've been noticing for some time now, designer fashion is expanding beyond clothes and into technology. If handbag designers can make accessories to hold your keys, then why not your laptop too, right? The latest entry is from no other than late fashion icon...

Desk chairs at DWR, now 15% more comfortable

As the old joke about Design Within Reach goes, the name makes no sense at all when you consider the prices. But it's still one of my favorite shops guaranteed to leave my drool marks on my laptop screen, as I imagine the fabulous, perfectly perfect home I'll have....

Angry Birds goes high fashion

This morning I saw a little girl in my building wearing an Angry Birds shirt, and had to laugh. How awesome that the hot iPhone game of 2010 (so hot that the New York Times Magazine did a story on it earlier this month) has infiltrated the minds--and chests--of...

Trade up your iPod at Toys R Us

I tend to take an "if it's not broken, don't fix it" attitude when it comes to my gadgets. I'm perfectly happy with my plain old iPod, and really I figure if it's working well for me, then I don't exactly need the newest, prettiest model. But that doesn't mean I don't...

Homework by dragon

For some time now, I have been looking for software to help my sixth grader organize his thoughts while writing school essays. I recently complained to a friend that dictation software didn't work well with my son's tween voice. Basically, it was producing written...

Cupcake making without cavity making

To say my girls are obsessed with the range of cake, cupcake, Jell-O mold, and cookie making/decorating iPhone apps out there is an understatement. It's like the EZ-Bake Ovens of the smartphone era: So fun for kids, it doesn't even matter whether they eat the results...
