LevelUp Aperture Gaming Storage Tower

We're Wii fanatics around our house and sadly, it's pretty obvious. We've got games, remotes, and yes, even guitars haphazardly strewn about our basement. But then I got the LevelUp Aperture gaming storage tower, and I shed a little tear of happiness every time I see...

Black Friday: Tech steals and deals

I've never been one to wake up at 3:45 a.m. to participate in the madness of Black Friday, but some of the deals that have been surfacing of late have made it more tempting to consider the idea. It seems that each year, every major retailer wants to outdo its...

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope you're all doing something home-y, happy, and dare we say, unplugged today. While we couldn't find you a pie-baking robot, we did score a fun, free Thanksgiving app that might help pass the time and give you a good chuckle while the turkey is cooking, football...

5 Reasons moms can be happy for the cloud

This post is sponsored by Microsoft Windows 7 and Windows Live which let you do all sorts of cool things with the cloud. I am a busy mom. If you are a mom, you're likely one too. (Is there even such a thing as a not busy mom? I tend to doubt it.)So of course I'm...

Tis the season for kids holiday apps

With holidays officially starting this week (despite the carols that are already taking over the store speakers), I've been on the lookout for something festive, fun, and perhaps a little educational to get my kids in the Christmas spirit. And luckily I just happened...

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...

Freeing up parental brain space

Not to toot my own horn, but honestly, sometimes I'm amazed at the wealth of information I'm able to contain in my head--and access at a moment's notice. Kids' birthdays, kids' friends' birthdays, my friends' birthdays, my friends' kids' birthdays, anniversaries,...

Carpooling just got way easier, thanks to the Figure8 carpooling app

Managing my kids activities -- and the time it takes me to get them there -- is one of the more complicated parts of parenting for me. Carpooling is the solution that not only saves my sanity, but also helps out the environment. We have been impressed by services like...

BEAM Authentic lets you broadcast your cause, right on your jacket.

Now more than ever, making our voices heard has become a priority for many of us. So when we saw this new, tiny piece of tech called BEAM Authentic, we were immediately intrigued. BEAM is a wearable screen, slightly larger than a poker chip, that displays any message...

How this free app will change the way you make your grocery shopping list.

If you're like me, you scramble to text your partner the items you need as you think of them, which makes for a pretty disorganized shopping list. But since discovering the AnyList app in our Recipe Rescue Facebook group, my grocery shopping list is the most organized...

The easy way to send a free ecard for Valentine’s Day. Make someone’s day!

Whether you forgot to grab a Valentine's Day card for the kids (or to the grandparents "from" the kids?), have a Galentine pal who would love to her from you today, or are thinking about sending a sexy "shape of things to come" message (ahem) to your sweetheart before...

Is MoviePass good for families? We tried it! | Damn you, Facebook Ads series

When I first heard about MoviePass on Facebook, I thought it sounded a little too good to be true. All the movies you could possibly see, for just $9 each month? That's crazy, considering how much it currently costs us to see movies in the theater with four kids (or a...

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...

Turn your old shirt into a laptop sleeve

My husband and I are complete opposites in a lot of ways, but especially when it comes to keeping and tossing. Me being the tosser. I do a monthly purge of my closet whereas he holds onto almost everything, somehow rationalizing that he will, once again, use it or...

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...

MobiGo by VTech gets the skeptical mom vote

My near 4 year-old son has been eying my oldest's Nintendo DS for awhile now, but he's just not quite old enough to do anything but ask us to help him play a game. Sort of defeats the point of having it. But since the brand new MobiGo from VTech arrived in our house,...

Getting more shopping bang for less buck online

We're so thrilled to be part of the launch of the brand new Windows Phone which is helping people, including moms like us, do more with less.     We here at Cool Mom Tech live by the technology of online shopping. (Boy, do our credit cards know that.) But thankfully,...

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...
