The iPhone 3GS is $49! WHOO!

If you’ve been holding out for an iPhone, mamas, your patience is about to be rewarded because the iPhone 3GS is now on sale for $49. That might just be the deal of the century! Perhaps in response to the Verizon iPhone (and of course, the fact that the iPhone 5G will be along soon), Apple has started running ads for this awesome deal that many folks might not have known about. It’s a massive savings and a great option if you don’t think you can rationalize the price for the iPhone 4. And don’t worry, you’ll still get all...

Getting hands-on by going hands-free

Moms have the uncanny ability to multitask like nobody’s business. Unlike certain people of the opposite sex (my husband who shall remain nameless), I can be on hold with the doctor’s office, respond to an email with one hand, and per my daughter’s request, draw an alligator with a monkey on its back with the other. As proud as I am of my abilities, there are times when multitasking to the extreme simply isn’t safe – namely in the car. I’ve realized that there must be a safer way. There is. I recently discovered the Jawbone ERA Bluetooth-enabled earpiece and...

Who gloves you, baby?

Nothing says I love you like, “here’s a new upgraded router honey!” Ah, I kid. In truth, there are plenty of tech-centric gifts that might suit your love on Valentine’s Day. Still, I’m a fan of the pretty and romantic, not the practical and the functional. Unless you’re talking these gloves which are a little of both. The I-Heart Fingerless Gloves are a lovely option for a text-happy sweetheart. They’re hand-knit of baby alpaca meaning they’re warm and cozy. The white heart on red–or red heart on white–means they’re sweet and romantic. And yet? The fact that you can...

Who’s going to stay up all night for a Verizon iPhone? Raise your hand.

A few weeks ago we brought you the joyous news that the iPhone 4 was finally (finally!) coming to Verizon. Today, we bring you the not-so-joyous news that Verizon’s going to make its customers pull an all-nighter in order to get their mitts on one. Here’s the scoop: If you’re an existing Verizon customer, you can snag one of the limited number of iPhones that they’ve held for you in appreciation of your loyalty. Isn’t that awesome of them? Then you realize–they’ll start taking orders online tonight at 3 AM ET. Or is that tomorrow? We think that’s pretty...

The iPhone is coming to Verizon. For real!

I’ve been coveting an iPhone ever since their launch, but as a Verizon wireless customer, I didn’t want to switch providers. Every year I held my breath and crossed my fingers that this would be the year that my device of choice would come to my provider of choice. Well, this is it. It’s happening next month! Just a little while ago in New York, Apple and Verizon made my dreams come true with a big announcement: The iPhone 4 is officially coming to Verizon. Whoo! The Verizon iPhone 4 will have the same features as the original–5-megapixel camera,...

Reduce, reuse, resell your old cell phones with ReCellular

I have always been a gadget girl. When I got my Motorola Razr more than a decade ago, the “it” phone of the early 2000s mind you, I thought I was pretty hot stuff. But as with everything else, technology advances, and the once cutting-edge Razr is now the cell phone for my daughter’s favorite dolly. (Every doll needs a cell phone, right?) With so many people getting new phones for the holidays, I thought it would be a good idea to figure out what to do with our old ones. Luckily, I came across ReCellular, an online site...

No glove, no love

It’s freezing outside, and you want to use your Smartphone to tweet about how incredibly freezing it is outside, but to do that you’d need to remove your warm gloves. Drat. If only there were a way to keep your hands warm and use a touch screen device. Ta da!! Check out Agloves, gloves that allow you to do just that. I didn’t pay much attention in science class, but apparently silver is a fabulous conductor and these knit gloves have it woven all through them. But, since the silver threads are coated in nylon, the gloves are soft...

Free smart phones at Best Buy. Oh yes they did.

With all the smart phone choices out there these days, deciding on the right one can be a bit overwhelming. And as busy moms, we don’t have enough time (or lollipops) to lug our kids from store to store, especially this time of year. It just so happens that Best Buy Mobile has a fantastic selection, covering all different carriers.  And they’ll be giving away some of that fantastic selection absolutely free. Seriously. [don’t miss a seriously amazing offer after the jump] Throughout December, Best Buy is giving away a free smart phone to customers with the purchase of...

To download or not to download, that is the question

In addition to my kids, sunglasses and sugarless gum, I never leave the house without my phone. I love my iPhone. I really love my iPhone. I’m lucky that as part of my job, I’m able to test out apps and speak with developers about new features and benefits. But even with that level of exposure, I barely scratch the surface of the breadth and depth that the world of apps offers. Trying to decipher the good from the bad apps can leave you feeling like you did when you had your first baby – completely dazed and confused....

Deck your phone with a festive case

Because I’m really not a fan of snowman sweaters, light-up earrings, and all that holiday jazz, apparently some people think I’m an Ebenezer Scrooge. I say it’s because I’ve yet to find the right festive accessory. That is, until I spotted the holiday CandyShell cases at Speck. The festive colors combined with the adorable graphics, like snowmen or Old Saint Nick himself have stolen my heart. And underneath that hard shell exterior is a very practical rubbery, shock-absorbing lining. It’s a fun way to celebrate the holiday season. And let’s be honest – way less annoying than a Jingle...
