SMS Audio Announces Sport Headphones

It’s no secret that I love SMS Audio Headphones. I have reviewed them here on my blog as a sturdy and better-sounding alternative to other headphones for teens and have added them to every gift guide I’ve put together both here and over at iPhoneLife.com. SMS Audio makes an amazing set of headphones, and I was pretty excited to see this addition in a press release last week. I love working out with music playing and the only downfall of the SMS…

Online Courtesy: 5 common courtesies to extend to your online family.

Five common courtesies to extend to your online family

Social media has come so, so far in the last few years. Of course the more we use something, the more comfortable we become with it. This can be good and bad. Since social media can be so social (all your friends in one place!) and so isolated (you, alone, behind a computer screen) at the same time, I thought it was a good time to point out a few things that people seem to be forgetting about. Presenting… my list of 5 common courtesies…

PowerSound II Personalized Bluetooth Speaker

PowerSound II Personalized Bluetooth Speaker Review and #Giveaway

I received a PowerSound II personalized Bluetooth speaker to help me write this post. Powerstick.com is also providing a personalized PowerSound II to one of my readers! I recently was approached by the folks at PowerStick to check out one of their Bluetooth speakers. Honestly my first thought was, “another Bluetooth speaker?” I review a lot of them for iPhoneLife and didn’t need another one. But then I clicked on the video they sent me–it’s catchy, and it showed that the PowerSound II…

One thing I feel strongly about is kindness. Treat everyone with kindness and truly, how can that go wrong? Dignity Health is taking this human kindness thing one step further.

Sell your old phone on eBay

Sell Your Old Phone On eBay!

This blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay. I’m especially excited about this partnership because it’s a service we use often in our home.  We have a great love of technology in our home. We actually have an additional line on our cell phone account that we pay for (just $10/month) so we can upgrade our iPhones more often. Upgrading often means that we would always have an “old” phone lying around, but about 2 years ago…

Thankfully, I was able to find some really amazing products at CES for Android fans – and hopefully there are a few of you over here…

Samsung Tab 3 10.1 Android Tablet Review

My Supertool: The Samsung Tab 3 Android Tablet #IntelTablets

I recently went to Best Buy and checked out their tablet selection. My laptop is getting a little old and slow, and I’d love to have something lightweight to take on road trips with me. The boys in blue (shirts) showed me around and pointed me towards one tablet in particular: the Samsung Tab 3 Android tablet, which runs off of a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Z2560 running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. What the heck does that mean? I asked my Best…
