Replacing My iPhone with an iPod Touch

I've had the AT&T iPhone for the last year and I love it for browsing the Internet, texting, & IMing (when it actually gets service). In Arizona there were dead zones in the house that it didn't even register missed calls. The worst was sitting at lunch with 12 people in Vegas and the only people who could actually talk or text were the ones on Verizon. ...more

The iPad: a Near-Miracle for My Son With Autism

My son Leo's life was transformed when a five-dollar raffle ticket turned into a brand-new iPad. I'm not exaggerating. Before the iPad, Leo's autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. With the iPad, Leo electrifies the air around him with independence and daily new skills. People who know Leo are amazed when they see this new boy rocking that iPad. I'm impressed, too, especially when our aggressively food-obsessed boy chooses to play with his iPad rather than eat. I don't usually dabble in miracle-speak, but I may erect a tiny altar to Steve Jobs in the corner of our living room....more

Do Tell: Share Your Prom Dress Photos and Win an iPod Touch!

The conversation went something like this: "My dress? I just remember bows. Everything had bows. Bows on the boobs, bows on the butt, bows around the bottom, clip-on bows for my shoes, bows in my hair ... " "Mine was short, and the entire bodice was made of stretchy black sequins." "Whoa. Black sequins? That sounds ... " I was sure my friend was going to tell me that my sequined dress sounded like a joke. But she surprised me. "... kind of AMAZING." ...more

An App a Day Keeps the Doctor Away?

I am fascinated by the amount of email I get every day announcing a new health & wellness app for the iPhone (or iPod Touch.) It's like every day someone is trying to convince me that I must download this great new health tool to help me a) lose weight b) get fit c) put on a bandage d) track my poop. I'm not kidding. I don't know if the large amount of email I receive about these apps is related to my subscription to every health & wellness newsletter or website known to man or if you're getting these kinds of emails too. ...more
