Looxcie Ma, no hands!

As the old joke about Design Within Reach goes, the name makes no sense at all when you consider the prices. But it's still one of my favorite shops guaranteed to leave my drool marks on my laptop screen, as I imagine the fabulous, perfectly perfect home I'll have....

Angry Birds goes high fashion

Homework by dragon

For some time now, I have been looking for software to help my sixth grader organize his thoughts while writing school essays. I recently complained to a friend that dictation software didn't work well with my son's tween voice. Basically, it was producing written...

Hands free – Music to a busy mom’s ears

I've definitely raised an eyebrow when I've seen what looks like someone talking to themselves at a restaurant, only to notice some giant bluetooth headset stuck in their ear. But with "hands-free" being the only legal option in many states for car cellphone usage,...

While I have mastered the skill of tossing a cheese stick to the back of the minivan without looking, hitting a screaming child's outstretched hand like a quarterback throwing a touchdown pass, I am still challenged to find the right hands-free cell phone calling...
