The kids are back to school and summer is unofficially over, but that does not mean that travel has to stop. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, there are plenty of apps that will help you get you where you need to go, as well as help you when you get there.
The thing I love about technology is that – when it works! – it makes your life easier. When it doesn’t work…well, you just hope no one is around with a camera to capture your adult temper tantrum.
These days it’s all about the cloud. Having access to your files from any computer, phone or tablet with an internet connection is extremely convenient and helpful for even the most disorganized person.
Now, like everything else in the tech world, there are oodles of options when it comes to storing your files in a cloud service. One in particular that seems to be very popular – it rhymes with cropfox – is great, but you only get 2GB for free. Move over cropfox, there’s a new kid in town. Read more
Guest post written by Tim from AndroidTipGuys:
I need to be honest with you. Organization doesn’t come naturally to me. That’s why I need tools and devices set up in order to function. Taking care of paperwork is no exception. Naturally, when it comes receipts, they’re almost impossible for me to keep track of without something to help. That’s why when I came across the Lemon Android app my eyes lit up. Read more
If you had to choose one thing you absolutely hate about your touchscreen phone or tablet, what would it be? Well, yes the battery life. Oh, and the cost to buy one. But the correct answer is the fingerprints.
Yes, that’s right. What can I say? It’s the neat part of the title. I recently discovered the Schatzii Smart Cloth and I have to admit, a cloth that cleans my screen and looks cool, makes me giddy. Read more

Do you realize that Christmas is less than two weeks away? And Hanukkah starts in eight days. Eight days!?! Oy.
Still struggling with holiday gift ideas? Yeah, me too. Luckily you can Google almost any type of gift guide – gifts for that impossible-to-buy-for person (*ahem* my mother-in-law), gifts for cat lovers, gifts for those obsessed with Angry Birds. No really, that one exists. Read more
Today I am over at GigaMarks (formerly FiveFreeApps) talking about iRule:
Universal remote controls have become increasingly popular. Sure they take a bit of time to setup and learn to use, but not having 17 remotes on your coffee table makes it worth it. And in keeping with the tradition of combining gadgets, now you can use your smartphone or tablet to control your entertainment system.
The holidays will be here before you know it. And if you’re still tackling your gift list, remember – ’tis the season to get a good bargain.

Let’s face it, the iPad is a toy. It’s a fun, fantastic toy, but it’s a luxury item that – while I absolutely LOVE mine – we don’t actually need. If you want to turn your iPad into a laptop, check out the ClamCase All-in-One Case.
Not only will this make typing easier, but I am hoping my husband’s company will now consider the iPad a work expense. Read more
