In Flight Broadband Rocks!!!!!!!!

by on August 20th, 2009

I usually fly American Airlines because I work in Dallas, TX (their hub) but this weekend there was a change of plans.

I’m flying to the Dominican Republic for a mini family reunion, and because of that I have 23847293874 connections, on Delta.

I haven’t flown Delta in months but boy am I glad to be here – like right now.

I am currently blogging from over 30,000 ft in the air, and the internet is amazing, and it was only 10 bucks. Although, you can get codes to try it for free…fly Delta! You won’t regret it 🙂

What does BAM mean?

by on August 8th, 2009

That was the question my friend’s mom asked her this week.

Why? Because her son had ended his celebratory rant on passing an exam with ‘BAM’.

Well, let us think about it. What does BAM mean?

Social Networking & it’s unconventional ways…

by on August 7th, 2009

Facebook.com, MySpace.com, LinkedIn.com and other sites are the kinds of things that pop into my head when I think of ‘social networking’ and I know I’m not the only one. If you walk into a coffee shop, or a barnes and noble, you’ll be lucky if you don’t find a bunch of people online, on those sites – the interesting part is that they’re not networking at the locations, although they’re almost sitting on each others laps.

Technology has made it harder for people to network the old school way, through the exchange of a smile, a smirk, a little comment, the exchange of a business card, etc. We are now too into our gadgets, our phones, Bluetooths, headphones, etc. – or so I thought…

I got a PSP; Now I Can Play Rock Band Anywhere I go!

by on August 3rd, 2009

rockband game and pspI finally got a PSP (our friend gave us one) and Rockband Unplugged for it courtesy of the friendly folks at Harmonix and MTV. After E3 playing Rockband Unplugged on PSP I realized it was a must have for me!  For several reasons, first I hate flying with a passion and I believe this is a great distraction for anyone like me or those who travel allot and are bored on a plane.

I am the type that needs to have a few glasses of wine and take 2 Dramamine just to get through security, board the plane and prepare for take off.  Once my husband put me on the smallest plane (2 propeller plane) known to man in a thunderstorm from Seattle to Utah…I was convinced he was trying to kill me by a plane crash (not to mention ironically my life insurance was up’d).  Something to be said when even the flight attendants were white as a ghost and no drink service. “CRAP,” I thought…I don’t even get a glass of wine before I die!

Review: Toshiba Mini NB205-N313P

by on August 2nd, 2009

IMG_0553“It’s so cute!” Those were the first words out of my mouth when I opened the box containing the Toshiba Mini NB205-N313P. I was given one to test in “Posh Pink,” but it’s also available in Frost White, Royal Blue, and Sable Brown.
Like all netbooks, it’s small and lightweight. However, the Toshiba NB205 seems a bit larger than some other netbooks out in the market. This is partly because it comes with a six-cell battery, which I’ll talk about more later in this review. Regardless, it still only weighs a little less than three pounds.

The laptop cover has a matte finish with diagonal etches. It sports a large Toshiba logo in the middle in a shiny silver. Open up the laptop and you see a glossy 10-inch LED screen with a full keyboard. A full keyboard on a 10-inch netbook is rare so it’s definitely a plus for the NB205. For a notebook, the keyboard was pretty easy to use. You have to get used to it at first, though. I punched in a few wrong letters the first few times I used the netbook.
