Now that we've entered back to school time, the classic question is popping up again. Should I be getting a tablet or a laptop for someone who will be hitting the books this fall? It’s a great question to ask! Unfortunately it’s not always an easy one to answer. As technology continues to advance at lightning speed, the power of tablets continues to advance while the portability of laptops makes them much more versatile as well. Let’s break it down.
Advantages of a laptop
For several years, the laptop has been the go-to choice for high school and college students. A 1... Continue Reading

Woo Hoo! Summer is here!
No matter where you live in this great land of ours, the kickoff to summer has arrived. Any day now, the school doors will burst open with screaming kids dashing into the sun. The pool will be packed with splashing happy faces, and hopefully you’ll be able to find a slice of paradise to enjoy. With all this time outside, there seems to be a focus on getting away from it all (technology included), but there is definitely a place for some really cool gadgets this time of year. Here are a few to keep by your side this summer season:
Bluetooth Speakers- What’... Continue Reading

I am a news and information junkie. I admit it. I need to have my finger on the pulse of what is going on whether it’s in my neighborhood, the tech universe, or around the world. This is why I constantly have my iPhone or iPad in close proximity so that I can see that highlight or catch that story moments after it happens. Even with the latest tech, there are things that are going to fall through the cracks. That’s the reason why we have the nightly news or the sports highlight shows. They give you a recap of what goes on around us. Sure, I would love to watch every game, but somet... Continue Reading

While watching the NFL playoff games this weekend, it hit me. The announcers were touting what great crowds were on hand in Denver and Seattle, and the pigskin lovers were whipped into a frenzy. Time and time again, I heard about record attendance numbers, and all I could think of was “really?” That’s when I was able to put into perspective that the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas will almost certainly be the biggest event I ever attend in my life. Sure, I’ve been to the Super Bowl, some big time college bowl games, and I was even lucky enough to attend one... Continue Reading

With Mother’s Day on this month’s calendar, it’s always good to look at mom and all of the things she has done for us over the years. For me, I think of my mom cooking a great meal, putting the Band-Aid on a scraped up knee, or reminding me that brown shoes equals a brown belt. Thank you mom. However, my mom and tech….. not so much. While the other mother in my life (my wife) is surrounded by technology with a smartphone, laptop, iPad® mini, and DVRing every singing show on the planet, my mom has been the opposite. She was the last one I know to get cell phone. She... Continue Reading

I recently watched a documentary on Steve Jobs and Apple®, and one of the descriptions I found so on target was that Steve Jobs was able to create a product we all needed before we even knew we needed it. That’s so true. Fifteen years ago, who would have thought we needed a smartphone, an iPad, or even a computer to make it through our busy days? Not me. I think back to my college days when email was just a fun way to say “hi” to a friend halfway across the country. Today, apps dominate our lives with constant access to news, email, sports scores, games and more. My iPad ... Continue Reading

For many people, their first steps into the Apple® world have been through either the iPhone®or the iPad®, and almost universally the experience is something special.

If you’re having a blast as part of this ever expanding community, it may be time to take the next step and try a Mac.

Last week, I had the chance to attend the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Alright let’s get the obligatory information out first. Yes, I had a lot of fun. Yes, I DID work. Yes, I lost a little money. However, the most impressive thing I saw all week was the influence one company had over the event, and it was a company that wasn’t even there. Of course, I’m talking about Apple. The tech giant from Cupertino doesn’t set up a booth in the middle of the 150,000 people combing the convention center floor, but their influence is everywhere. Hundreds of other c... Continue Reading

Becoming a father is a life-changing experience, and there is nothing more rewarding than watching those little ones grow. In my house we reached a few milestones this year. My youngest daughter is officially potty trained (YES! YES! YES!), while my oldest learned to ride a bike, joined the swim team, and started kindergarten. Watching their bodies and brains develop is amazing and filled with so many of those “how did she do that” moments. Not surprisingly, tech has been there along the way.
I have to admit, the first time I gently placed an iPad in my daughters’ hands, lea... Continue Reading

Remember when a tablet was a pill you took for a headache? Yeah, things have changed a bit in the last few years. Now, tablets are a must have for everyone. They are the quick and easy way to connect, surf the web, play games, and basically, consume all kinds of high tech fun. The challenge comes in trying to find the one that fits you, and speaking of one that fits, the super slim Toshiba Excite fits almost anywhere.
Toshiba’s venture into the tablet world has been an impressive one, and it all starts with the screen. At 10”, it’s among the biggest around, yet they’ve... Continue Reading
