Are PDAs Becoming a Thing of the Past?

Has Technology Eliminated the Need for PDAs?

I came upon a realization the other day that technology may have eliminated the need for the PDA, and no, I'm not talking about public displays of affection. I'm referring to the personal digital assistants that everyone thought were so divine back in the 90s. It seems that the new millennium may have antiquated them.

It's the Season for Personal Air Conditioners

Personal air conditioners are superb inventions. Using a full size air conditioner is great, except that it eats energy, makes your electric bill rise through the roof and you cannot take it with you when you go out in the heat. Fans are also a great option, but when it is so hot outside the pavement is melting, fans just seem to circulating hot air. How can you beat the heat? Personal air conditioners come to the rescue.

When It Comes to Camcorders, Do You Want Mini-DV or Mini-DVD?

Christmas is right around the corner and my wife wants a new camcorder to catch all of those glorious Christmas morning memories. While I think still shots are much better for this occasion (can't hear one child screaming that the other's gift is better if there's no sound) she's insisting on motion picture. I relented and agreed, but little did I know that I was about to get a crash course in mini-DV vs. mini-DVD. Wondering what the difference is? Let me share the fruits of my quick education.

Now's the Time to Get a GPS Unit For Your Car

Big Drop in GPS Prices

If you've yet to get a TomTom, Magellan, Garmin or other GPS unit, you should have hit the stores on Black Friday. Some stores were selling GPS devices for as little as $99.

How Young Is Too Young For a Cell Phone?

Are We Taking Cell Phone Usage Too Far?

The other day at the playground, I watched as what looked like a 5-year-old girl answered a cell phone call from her grandmother. No, it wasn't her mom or dad's cell phone she was using -- it was her own. Which raised the question -- are kindergartners too young to have their own cell phones? The answer may surprise you.

Welcome To The Affordable World of The Flat Screen Television

Ever since I stayed in a hotel suite with a flat screen television, I've wanted nothing more than to have one mounted right above my fireplace. The picture and sound quality combined with the sleek, cool look had me sold from day one. It was just the price that kept me from jumping in on the flat screen television bandwagon.

People were waiting in line for hours for the new iPhone. Some just wanted to make sure they got theirs the first day of its release, others were hoping to make a profit. So was the iPhone a hit? Yes. Was it a hit on the level of the Nintendo Wii (which is still, many months after its release, still almost impossible to find in stores)? Not really. However, that's not a bad thing. It means that you can get your hands on an iPhone without paying hundreds of dollars over retail.
