HP Photosmart Premium with Touchsmart Web (aka no more cords!)

by on December 11th, 2009

We are living in a cordless age. Remember internet through the cable in the wall? We have wi-fi. Remember playing Snake on your phone to pass time? Now we have app stores and MMS. Remember printer cables that tied you to the desk whenever you wanted to print something? We got networked printers.

But how bout we just go online right from the printer? Imagine, completely cutting out your PC intermediary– just use your printer to connect right to Facebook or Flickr and print away?

That’s exactly what HP released, then, with the world’s first web connected home printer.

Review: Motorola Rival Purple A455

by on December 3rd, 2009

A455_purple_FrontOpen_msge_lit_VZW[1]I got notice from Motorola that they would be sending me a new Motorola Rival A455 purple phone to test out (and give back after two weeks).  Once I heard that I would be getting this phone, I went to Verizon to see what goodies would be delivered to me in a matter of days.  My initial thoughts were that the silver and black Motorola Rival A455 phone was a tad manly, and curious on how I would adapt to the keyboard (only b/c I am use to mine).

Once I received the Motorola Rival A455 in the mail I noticed I received the cool purple color and I have to admit, I am a huge fan of color personalization. Continue Reading…
