App Review: Zombies, Run!

The gym has always been the Claw to my Gadget, the Wicked Witch to my Dorothy, the Gideon to my Ramona Flowers. I got a membership last year, and I try to go a few times a week, but can barely stand to drag my ass to anything but yoga. I ran


Product Review: Boxsome Boxes

There’s a new “box of random fun” type service that’s come out, it’s called Boxsome and it’s ran by Top Hat Sasquatch. Since it is Top Hat Sasquatch it’s nostalgia based. This one’s a bit different from your typical box subscriptions though. First of all, it’s not actually a subscription. As their about


Google Reader Alternatives: NewsBlur

A couple of weeks back I wrote a post about Google Reader being retired, and what the various options were for someone who was looking for something new. I mentioned at the time that I couldn’t write about NewsBlur because they were slammed so hard that the site was unusable. They’ve either beefed up their servers, or


5 on Friday: 5 Alternatives to Google Reader

Update: NewsBlur is running well now, and I was able to check it out. The inevitable has happened. Google Reader is going away. The service will be permanently taken down on July 1, 2013. I’ve been using Google Reader for almost as long as I’ve had a Google account, so it was a bit

Service Review: CPR Cell Phone Repair Review – Carmel

Disclaimer: I after I broke my iPhone I went to CPR to get it fixed. I didn’t mention writing a review, or get any kind of discount. I just looked them up when I drove by one day. As much as I loved my Android phone as a pocket computer, the lack


And Back Again…

I was so happy when my husband decided he wanted a Galaxy SIII and I could take his Galaxy Nexus. I was able to overlook the bad battery life.  I picked up a MyCharge, threw it in my purse, and considered it done. I was able to overlook the fact that I’d


Product Review: Evoluent Mouse

Disclaimer: My husband bought me the Evoluent Mouse for Christmas and I decided I’d write about my experiences. They didn’t pay me to write this or provide free product. I’m that coworker whose computer you hate to use. I was diagnosed with a mild case of carpal tunnel last year, and have


5 on Friday: Five Reasons I’m Glad to be Back on Android (And Five Things I Miss About iPhone)

Santa came early this year and delivered my husbands Galaxy S3 on Christmas Eve, giving me the luxury of switching from my busted iPhone to his old Galaxy Nexus before the post-Christmas rush. I’ve only had it a few days, but here are my initial thoughts on why I’m glad to be


Product Review: GUNNAR Glasses

First, a little background, I wear contacts and stare at a screen at least 9 hours a day at work. Usually about four or so hours in, I start rubbing my eyes. About seven hours in I have problems focusing on the screen. Not pleasant. Especially when it gets to be 12-14
