It is so fascinating at what it can do in today’s world. You can usually find me on a Friday night hanging out at Best Buy playing with all the latest gadgets as hands-on is the best experience ever. I recently learned that Best Buy has brought to life the latest in home technology at their Tech Home in the Mall of America where customers can…

It’s been about a month into the summer and by now we have done most of the items on our summer bucket list. Therefore, the summer boredom is starting to kick in. Trying to find things to do for the kids in the summer can be a challenge. My son is quite little engineer and is always building something. I can’t tell you how long he has been asking for a robotic arm because…

Do you have a gift for dad yet? If you don’t that is okay as there is still time to get the perfect gift for dad before his special day.

Ever since we bought our…

I am not a fan of cables everywhere as they just look messy and cluttered. Thankfully Actiontec has 2 new products MyWirelessTV 2 and ScreenBeam Mini2 to solve this problem. Not only do they help eliminate the cable mess they also stream wireless all throughout my home. And with a family of 5 this is something we definitely need. MyWirelessTV 2 replaces messy HDMI cables with the convenience of wireless, so you can install…

Taking better care of myself was one of my goals for 2016 and to do that was to eat healthier and exercise regularly. There were so many times that I would exercise and have a guessing game of how many calories I actually burned. Sure, I have tried other fitness trackers before but none seemed accurate. I could be sitting in a chair and moving my arm and it would count it as a step. Thanks to the fitness tracker by Withings I can get accurate, in-depth readers each time.  I have become so attached to it that I never…

Having 3 kids that are gamers means they are always looking for the latest and greatest gadgets to help improve their game and strategy. Personally, I don’t get it. I mean what happen to the basic joystick and one button. Okay maybe I am still living in the 80’s but nowadays technology has taken over improving many things in our lives. My 16-year-old son was looking for a gaming keyboard and got a chance to test out the Mechanical Feeling Gaming Keyboard by Masione. The design of the keyboard is functional as the keys are raised making it easier to…

When I think of 3D printing, I think of those heavy-duty machines creating an object that takes hours to make. But actually 3D printing has gotten easier and smaller in size. Drawing three-dimensional objects can be done with ease from the CreoPop 3D Printing Pen. You draw 3D objects with a press of the button and create any shape or object you like. The design of the pen is small enough to fit in a bag or pocket and your fingers rest easy on it. It is fun to use for crafts and school projects! There is a wide variety…

It’s almost funny how quickly something can becoming obsolete. Take cassette tapes and vinyl for example. Not too many years ago, in the 80’s, the CD replaced the cassette tape; in 1985 Dire Straights “Brothers in Arms” was the first CD to ever outsell it’s vinyl edition. From there cassettes become a thing of the past, CD’s was the new frontier and vinyl was only a distant memory. Personally, I’m a vinyl person. I still have a few cassette tapes lying around, somewhere, but rather than go out and buy a new CD or download MP3’s, I love to find…

I am a NETGEAR Ambassador and I received this product​ for free​ in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinion​. I take hundreds of pictures monthly and download them on my computer. After several months that can turn into thousands of pictures on my computer slowing it down. Not only do I take many pictures but I also store lots of music on my computer. In order to keep my computer running smoothly I need more memory and the way to free is up is extra storage. That is where the ReadyNAS by Netgear comes into play. It is a media…
