How do we teach our kids to make good commenting choices?

Have your kids ask themselves these simple questions before they comment, and teach them the concept of “owning your words.”

The future of tablets: Not just iPads

A few weeks ago I reported on all the CES discoveries made just for moms. But if there was one thing that really struck me at the show, it's that tablets are here, they're not going away, and boy do moms love them. Honestly, the majority of tablets that I saw did not...

35mm is back. And it’s pink.

If you like the idea of a techy Valentine's day, we've been coming across lots of cute red and pink gadgets that will hopefully last a little longer than a box of Teuscher truffles. Not that I don't also want Teuscher truffles. This old fashioned 35mm pink camera...

Geeky sheets for geeky kids

I've spent who knows how long trying to track down cool kids sheets for my daughter who, unlike her older sister, could care less about princesses, fairies, and Dora offerings. Secretly (or not too secretly), that makes me verrrry happy. But it also makes it a little...

5 picks you might have missed this week

The way we see it, why buy something in plain black if you can buy it in ninja robot? In case you missed them recently, these CMT picks have cute-cool covered. 1. Need a place to store spare wires, connectors, rings, and sushi-shaped jump drives? How about inside a...

Doodle 4 Google 4 oodles of cash

My kids love to doodle. Pen, pencil, crayon, whatever the writing implement and whatever the paper surface (yes, even mortgage statements). If they were just a tad older, I'd put that doodling talent to good use for the annual doodle contest put on by Google....

Scrapbooking goes mobile

I was once at a scrapbooking party where each of us had the simple (or not so simple) task of creating a page for my friend's baby book. There were piles of paper, letters, shapes, designs, and it took me a long time to figure out what to pick and choose. It kind of...

The geeky girl’s valentine

I'm pretty sure you'll never catch me wearing a heart necklace. I know, I know how completely unromantic of me. But I could be swayed with this new find that pays homage to my inner tech geek. (Hear that, dear?) If you're going Huh? Less than 3? then look at the the...

Video for those of us who don’t mind looking old

Unless you've been living under a rock you've probably seen a picture or two shot with one of the retro-inspired apps, like Hipstamatic, which create images reminiscent of a 1970's Polaroid picture. My favorite thing about those apps is that they make almost anyone...

Chore charts 2.0

Adding a fourth kid into the mix has meant I've really needed to streamline as much as I can around my house. But fortunately, that hasn't necessarily meant a bunch of new gadget purchases. Just my handy smart phone that I already own, and making use of some of the...

Minding your Peas and Quinces

I'm still on the fence about toddlers and technology. (Should I be admitting that here?) There are times when I look at my daughter effortlessly swiping through pictures on my iPhone and I marvel at the absurdity of it all. Then there are other times--like when she's...

iPhone cases to love

iPhone cases are now nearly as plentiful as iPhone apps, so it's not surprising that we've discovered some super new, super cool, super artful ones. What is surprising however is that they were all designed by children. And all those children are cancer patients. This...

Adorably ironic camera bags ahoy!

Back in the day, there were two choices for your camera bag: black faux leather or the padded canvas cube meant to hold a $5000 pro camera and lenses. I had to nestle my tiny point-and-shoot in a bed of socks to keep it from rattling around next to all the film...

Best iPhone apps for a 4 year-old girl? Reader Q&A

A little birdie tells me that you might be a good person to ask for educational and child-friendly apps. I'm helping my boss sort out his iPhone and he has a four year old girl. I have a list that includes Cookie Doodle, Cut the Rope, Drawing Pad, Bloom and Angelina...

An artistic app to abundantly appreciate

It's not often that I come across a kid's app that is educational, artistic and fun, all in one. For real. As much as I enjoy a funny app with a cat who repeats everything you say, or an app that's simply a whoopee cushion (always a hit with the kids), there's...
