When I first was told about the Ripple Safety Device, my mind went straight to where most of my focus has been lately – to running. I even blogged about it over on mrsgregwillis the other day with that exact focus. But in thinking more about it, Ripple isn’t just for keeping runners safe, it’s great for anyone who needs to feel safe and could be a great device to give your kids as you start letting them “have some wings”.

I am a modern mom, so when Dana asked me to join her and four other mom bloggers from Pittsburgh at Comcast’s McCandless Crossing Xfinity store, it was an obvious YES. Sure, I had 500 other things going on that week, but I knew this event (about ways to connect your family with technology) was going to make it all worth it. And oh, did it.

If you are like me and rely on your phone or tablet to view your favorite recipes or serve as a second screen while you blog (or work your business), the Gadget Grab™ just might be a tool for you.
This tool is handy for holding your devices so you can be hands free (at home – I wouldn’t recommend it in the car). There are two sizes, one for phones and one for tablets.

Are you still looking for a summer camp for your kids? There are several adventures with Digital Media Academy that your ‘lil learners just might be interested in. If my kids were the right age, I’d love for them to take part in any of the following camps this summer (all information from https://digitalmediaacademy.org):
As a mom who works in technology AND has three girls, I am super excited to share with you an extension on the information about Digital Media Academy last week. They have a program made specifically for girls to help close the gender gap in the technology industry. I feel it, and I hope by the time my daughters are ready to enter the workforce it will be a non-issue.
Are you like us and looking for something for your school-aged kids to do this summer? Perhaps Digital Media Academy is the answer for your ‘lil ones! Founded at Stanford University, Digital Media Academy (DMA) is ranked as one of the ten best summer camps in the world.
You probably know I am kinda addicted to my cell phone, and Greg is addicted to saving money. The two worlds are colliding this month as Speck Products is bringing month-long holiday deals our way with their Speck the Halls promotion.
Just in time for Father’s Day, Speck Products has some options to protect your guy’s mobile devices while on the go.
As a stay-at-home dad, Greg typically keeps his iPad Mini handy for the meltdown moments that might happen while out and about with Evan and Ari. And let’s be for real – he likes to have it for trips, too. While I love the man, he’s dropped his share of devices (hence why he didn’t have a smartphone until recent). (And he is not alone…more on that below.)

Just before I went away on Girl’s Weekend, I got a gorgeous new tech gadget – the Samsung Galaxy Mega. It was perfect timing, because I had plenty of time to figure it out. Along with it came one month of service from Metro PCS, so you know I plugged that baby in and got ready to have some fun.
