Peace Tech and Harmony

Power Up, baby

If you play as much Mario Kart in your house as we do in ours (I mean uh, when we're not listening to NPR) you will probably weep little animated tears of joy at this Power Up onesie I found on etsy. Made by a doting auntie for her future Luigi-loving nephew, the...

Looxcie Ma, no hands!

Having recently armed myself with a video camera packed with the features a mom on the go needs (image stabilization, face capture, full HD, foot rubs on demand) I was ready for every spontaneous moment my kids could dish out. School play? Ready. Winning goal? Ready....

Desk chairs at DWR, now 15% more comfortable

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

This morning I saw a little girl in my building wearing an Angry Birds shirt, and had to laugh. How awesome that the hot iPhone game of 2010 (so hot that the New York Times Magazine did a story on it earlier this month) has infiltrated the minds--and chests--of...

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,...

Cupcake making without cavity making

To say my girls are obsessed with the range of cake, cupcake, Jell-O mold, and cookie making/decorating iPhone apps out there is an understatement. It's like the EZ-Bake Ovens of the smartphone era: So fun for kids, it doesn't even matter whether they eat the results...
