Do We Need the Internet on our TV Screens?

If you are already feeling over-connected, you might not like the fact that at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week most big TV manufacturers weren't really pushing the concept of Internet Protocol TV (IPTV). They have already assumed that we like it, we want it and it's here to say. In fact, at the keynote on Thursday morning, CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro made the prediction that in 2014, "consumers in the U.S. will purchase nearly 30 million Internet-connected televisions." ...more

Spokeo.com: How Much Information Is Really Being Shared?

My dad called me in a panic last week. "Have you heard of that spoke-o-dot-com website? HAVE YOU HEARD?" The fact that my calm and collected father seemed panicked about something was alarming enough. The fact that he knew something about tech news as he is decidedly un-tech was even more alarming. But, yes, I had heard of Spokeo.com, and I was concerned about the level of information the search-engine-info-aggregator was sharing with the Web. ...more

Did Kourtney & Kim TAKE New York?

I'll admit it, I'm a Kardashian Family fan. I haven't watched religiously from the beginning of their "reality life," but I've kept up throughout the years. I got on board immediately with "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami" and actually enjoyed every episode. So obviously, "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" was programmed on my DVR to record. ...more

I love watch the Kardashians on E! in High Definition. Now I watch them, laugh, and then search ...more

The iPad's Appeal in a Multi-Generational Family

My mother still listens to cassette tapes and would gladly play her 8-track tapes if her player still functioned. Yet, she has embraced the iPad. For her, the iPad is primarily a way to check the stock market and manage her e-mail, even when she travels.  E-mail is just a single touch now, making it incredibly easy for her to check multiple accounts at once.  Her partner loves to listen to non-mainstream ethnic music via Pandora, watch news videos on his favorite TV news station , and read his home town online newspaper.  They enjoy the iPad because they don't have to type much to access their content, they don't have to sit in front of the computer to get online and they can use it to stay in touch when they travel or visit....more

Gimme the Geek Girl, and Free My Soul

Back when Entertainment Weekly voted 2007 as the Year of the Geek, I was distressed and pissed to realize that they meant male geek. Somehow, despite my rant on the topic, not much has changed since then. Where's the love for geeky girls and ladies? ...more

Internet to Girl Geeks: The Force is With You!

When I told my kids that a seven year old in our neck of the woods was bullied for taking a Star Wars water bottle to school, they didn't get it. There was silence -- they were waiting for the punchline. Did the water bottle have the wrong Star Wars characters on it? Had she drawn some pink bows on Darth Vader? There had to be some other reason. It simply made no sense to them that she would be picked on simply because she's a girl who likes Star Wars. ...more
