election apps

It may feel like the election is already completely taking over your life, and you may kind of want to hide under a rock until November 8. But if you’re a politics or news junkie who wants to stay up-to-date on every twist and turn (and there are many this time around), there are apps that can help you do that without going totally insane. Don’t forget that in between checking the polls obsessively, you can tap meditation apps and…

A Fall Giveaway plus Scary Tech Nightmares

ray remote: Father's Day Tech

Don’t tech problems always have that horror movie feel to them? You jump with fright as a hard drive screeches and wipes out all your data. Your phone dies, and there’s not a charger in sight, leaving you unable to call for help (or to attend that really important conference call). A wave of panic washes over you as you search for a file that has inexplicably vanished. You smash your phone and realize with dread that you hadn’t backed it up…

Daughters

When my daughter watches the news, she laughs off the ridiculousness of what’s happening in our election. She’s trading memes of a certain candidate’s hair with her friends, and yes, she’s now quite familiar with what a pussy is, and how one might grab someone by it.

We initially had tons of plans with friends to come out and visit, but people flaked on us…

10 digital ways to go “back to school”, grown-up style

Logitech Master

Every fall you re-live the excitement of back-to-school season via your kids. New teachers, new topics, new textbooks! But just because your classroom days are long gone doesn’t mean you can’t keep tapping into the power of acquiring knowledge. In fact, fall is the perfect time to master something new—like a technical or creative skill, a language, or the facts on a topic that fascinates you. For me, learning is life-long… I’m always looking for ways to challenge myself, conquer new things, master…

Back to life…

september routine

I have a confession: While I had the most wonderful summer — personally, professionally, all of it — it’s the end of August and I’m not crying in my popsicle about how summer is almost over. On the contrary, I’m sorta dying for it to hurry up and be done, so September can kick in. September is when my routine resumes. When I get back to getting my s*&t together and getting things done. There’s something about summer that throws everything off— my regular workouts,…
