Best Baby Monitor for Audio and Video Connections

By |April 24th, 2015|Categories: Baby Stuff, Recommendations|Tags: , , , , |

When I found out I was pregnant, I went crazy with checklists. By the third trimester, we had almost everything on our lists. The one thing we couldn't decide, however, was the best baby monitor. Do we spend $30 on a cheap audio-only monitor with poor quality? Is it worth spending $200 or more on a single-function video monitor that we’ll only need for a year or so? In this modern world, we expected a better option. After extensive research, we found the best baby monitor was actually an iOS app [...]

I Don’t Believe in the Magic of Apple, but Not for the Reason You Think

Actually, it's difficult to write this because I believe people need to know the truth about Apple, and I have to figure out how to get them to listen.

I own the best 27-inch iMac out there in terms of processor speed, graphics card and RAM... but I didn't opt for the solid state drive because I didn't think it would improve the performance [...]

This is a really cool announcement that we'll get to shortly.  So much stuff to write about so little time.  After so much writing today, we decided to take a little break.  Since this isn't coming out until next summer, we think we can cover it before then. :D [...]

Steam: coming to a Mac near you… eventually.

By |February 25th, 2010|Categories: Articles, Gaming, Tech|Tags: , , , , , , |

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Steam, it's a game distribution platform that has revolutionized the way PC users purchase, play and share games. Each user has an account that can be accessed from any machine, and thus you can play any of your games on any machine. By machine, we mean PC. The titles are always current, and the Steam platform streamlines the shopping process for you. I've actually purchased games I had never seen at the store because they were featured on Steam and they [...]
