Sumo means style. (Not big fat guy in diaper.)

Hey Apple Store, I've got a bone to pick with you. I was browsing through your laptop cases at your 14th Street store and let's just say I, and the two other women staring blankly at the unimpressive display, left empty-handed. If you wouldn't mind stocking a few that...

Hipstamatic is a photography blast from the past

I'm far from a photography expert, and admittedly, the only camera I use anymore is my iPhone.  While every now and then I get a great picture with it, I often feel bad that the only pictures of my kids are taken with the sub-par quality of a camera phone. That is,...

DriveSafe.ly – the app that takes on distracted driving
