Sponsored Review: Nokia Lumia Icon

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Verizon Wireless. I’ve had Verizon Wireless as my service provider since I first got a cell phone – and that was a very conscious decision. While growing up in Albany, my parents made the choice for me, once I graduated college, the choice was up to me. However, with all of my business and leisure travels, I quickly learned that Verizon had the best service coverage of all – and that was absolutely critical to me. When I’m traveling for work, staying connected to my phone/email is crucial. And …

App I Love: Rapportive

I think pretty much everyone has to send emails to people they don’t know on occasion. And it’s never fun when you make the assumption that “Leslie Smith” is a female… and he turns out to be a male. Oops. But I recently learned about a new add-on for Gmail that helps with that problem – and provides a lot of other benefits as well. Ramit Sethi did a short newsletter this week on Rapportive, and I initially figured I’d download it and likely get rid of it when it didn’t turn out to be that great (after all, who …

App I Love: Full Text RSS Feed

Over my Christmas vacation, I intended to get caught up on my blog reading… but that unfortunately didn’t totally happen. Oops! However, I recently discovered an app that has greatly improved my blog reading experience, and wanted to share it with all of you. Have you ever added a blog to your RSS reader and been irritated to discover that the blogger has set up their feed to only show “excerpts?” That is, your reader shows a few sentences or maybe even a few paragraphs, but then you get the dreaded “click here to continue reading?” That pisses me off …

Sponsored: Tablet Shopping and RadioShack’s Name Your Deal Holiday Promo

I am participating in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for RadioShack. I will receive a gift card to facilitate a shopping trip and promotional item as a thank you for participating. Recently, the airline industry has been abuzz with the news that the FAA finally agreed to allow electronic devices to be used between taxi and 10,000 feet / 10,000 feet and touchdown. This is huge! I know that there’s a sentiment about “being in the air is a chance to disconnect; why would you want to change that?” but I think that for frequent travelers who are …

Apps I Love: Wappwolf

Every so often, something bad happens to my phone. Sometimes it’s my own fault – like when I run in the rain without protecting it well and it shorts out. Sometimes it’s been someone else’s fault – like when it got stolen from me by a busboy at a restaurant (note: do not ever go to Vynl in Hell’s Kitchen). And sometimes it’s been no one’s fault – like when the SD card mysteriously stopped working just moments after I had gotten a pic with Deena Kastor. But no matter what the reason, the result is the same: lots of my …
