Every geek has a love/hate relationship with wires. We realize that they are necessary to sync and charge our devices; but they get in the way, they look messy and there are just too many.
By now you’ve seen the commercials for AT&T’s iPhone where some dumb guy can look up something silly on his phone while he’s on a phone call. C’mon, who doesn’t know what year ‘Whomp There It Is’ came out?!

If you’re a working parent, you know how difficult it can be when your older children come home alone after school. There are concerns about them losing their keys, there are concerns about what they’re doing at home and who they’re doing it with.
Against my better judgement, we have added a new dog to our home. And I’ll be the first to admit that only after a week and a half, I am attached and he’s my little schmuppy puppy!

When I’m grocery shopping and I see another geek with a smart phone or tablet in hand, checking items off their list, I give a little smile to acknowledge our matching geek-ness. I would like to ask them what program they’re using and what they think, but I don’t want to be the crazy-lady geek.
As a true geek, I typically purchase a new desktop and laptop every two years. Alternating years; I am an unpaid blogger afterall.
My system for getting rid of the old computer has always been giving it to someone in the family who needs it or storing it in my basement.

Long gone are the days when you had to be tied to a desk to get anything done. We work in bed, at Starbucks, on the couch, heck even in the bathroom. My favorite place is my husband’s big comfy leather chair.
So with comfort covered, we still have a problem – power. And while a 3-foot power cord is fine for some, others need a little more. Like 9-feet. Oh, that sounds nice.
Who doesn’t love to catch a few extra minutes of zzzz’s in the morning? Ever since my daughter started kindergarten and that alarm goes off at 6:10, I can’t wait for the weekends where I can sleep until 7:30. I don’t ask for much.
