About Cool Mom Tech

Cool Mom Tech is the intersection of tech and style, of parenting, practicality and fabulosity, brought to you by Kristen Chase and Liz Gumbinner, the publishers behind the influential shopping and design site, Cool Mom Picks.

It’s grown to become the go-to source for millions of parents who want common-sense info about tech delivered with a smile. Probably because we’re not techies who parent, we’re moms who use tech in our everyday lives. Same as you. Same as millions of parents who are online every day.

We’re on Facebook, we’re on Twitter. We are on Instagram. We are on Pinterest probably a little too much. We’re sharing photos, managing money, finding design inspiration, texting our kids, shaking our fists at in-app purchases, and triple-checking our social media privacy settings. We’re listening to podcasts, bingewatching streaming video after the kids are in bed, and using our smartphones as our lives’ remote controls.

As parents, we want items that keep us organized, keep us stylish, keep our kids safe, keep life fun. We want services and gear that make us think, how did we ever live without that? And we want to know what other parents think is cool–not some 22 year-old dude with ironic facial hair.

So…here we are.

You can also find us talking tech in national newspapers and magazines, with startups and big companies, on conference panels from CES to AdAge’s Creative Week, and on TV shows like NBC’s TODAY, CNN, HLN, GMA, and CBS The Early Show. Which is always fun.

If you have a great new business or product or news that will change the world as we know it (or hey, maybe just a fun app to help us decompress for a few minutes), feel free to send it our way at info@coolmompicks.com.

We aren’t compensated for our reviews, so put that Ben Franklin back in your pocket, missy. But if you are interested in advertising, by all means email Lisa Barnes, our Director of Ad Sales and Sponsorships at lisa@coolmompicks.com and she’ll hook you up.

Also? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and Pinterest and YouTube and Google Plus (in two places) and now on Instagram too.  We’re fun. And we like to say hi back.
