We may be living in a digital world, but when it comes to special occasions, there’s something to be said for going the old-fashioned route of paper holiday cards. My wedding was pre-Facebook/texting/email but even then it was challenging to get everybody’s addresses together, (a lot of phone calls were necessary… remember those?).
The season of greetings and glad tidings is here, calling us to brush up on our correspondence skills and send warm thoughts to family and friends. Dive into the holiday tradition with this mix of send-in-a-click digital and too-pretty-to-ignore paper cards.
I said goodbye long ago to catalogs on my doorstep, and I’d rather downgrade to an iPhone 3G than navigate one more department store sale section. So, I’ll need a new tactic if I want to stalk my dream designer denim until it’s at a price that my wallet can handle. Discover Shop It To Me, the shopping website my I hoped I’d find before succumbing to the “R-Word” (retail).

One of the most annoying side effects of a digital life is cord clutter. It’s impossible to avoid, as every gadget comes with a brick and a cable, all vying for space in your drawers or on your countertops. There are so many products on the market designed to help you combat cord clutter, but honestly many of them just end up getting tangled in along with the cords, and frankly, I’m not apt to buy products that doesn’t improve on the concept of a twist tie or a baggie.
I’ve decided that my smartphone battery and I are connected: If my battery runs low— or, heaven forbid, dies— I feel dead too. Maybe we’re just like E.T. and Elliot, sharing an inexplicable physical connection, so when one suffers the other one does too. Or maybe it’s just that my phone is my lifeline— to my kids, my man, the news, the business deal, and that leather bomber I’ve had my eye on.
When it comes to smartphones, it’s all about more features, smaller footprints and bigger hard drives… and those “more” phones usually come with a big price tag. The Pantech Discover packs a ton of thoughtful features (read: ones you might actually use) at a great price, and it’s a great phone for a few different types of people.
