Last week, Jenna was faced with a dilemma. Having reached the age when all of her close friends were leading busy career-driven lives, she found herself alone in the realm of first-date-dress buying. This was unknown; this was daunting. Pressed for time and unsure of which look to opt for, Jenna began frantically sending late night screenshots of possible looks to her friends. Too short? Too tight? Too frumpy?
Everloop is a great alternative to Facebook for kids in the 8-13 range who want to socialize online while still being safe.
Every time I see one of my friends’ kids join Facebook, I cringe a little. Oftentimes, these children are under Facebook’s required age (13 years), but even a young teen often doesn’t use much discretion when posting online. Okay, let’s be honest. Many adults don’t use discretion when posting online either! The fact of the matter is that Facebook isn’t a great place for kids unless you’re watching over their shoulder every time they are online, which is pretty unrealistic for most parents.
Hullabalu is a new storytelling app available to entertain your kids in an interactive way on iPad, iPod Touch, and iPhone.
A few nights ago, I was at dinner with a friend and her family, and while we waited for our meals, the kids were busy playing on the family iPad. This kind of thing is pretty common these days, so most parents I know are always on the lookout for interesting apps that combine education and entertainment.
Could a new smart surgery tool called the iKnife help save the lives of patients with cancer?
Surgery and other medical processes are getting more advanced by the day, but a new knife takes the cake when it comes to “smart” tools in a hospital setting. According to reports on Mashable, and inventor at the Imperial College London is developing a tool known as iKnife, which is able to detect if a surgeon is cutting cancerous cells. As far as technology in hospitals goes, this is pretty cool because doctors will get real-time feedback instead of having to wait for biopsy results.
A new app called Locket allows you to earn money by displaying ads on your smartphone’s lock screen.
Ads are annoying, but would you voluntarily look at them if someone paid you to do so? One app developer is asking that question. Earlier this month, Locket launched on Android, and this new app will pay you to look at ads on your phone’s lock screen.

Reely is a new social game that follows in the footsteps of SongPop. Instead of music, though, Reely is all about movies.
If you’re a fan of the game SongPop, you’ll love Reely, the new Facebook and mobile game from Gamba Gamez. Like SongPop, Reely allows you to face off against your friends (or other random users or “Reelers”) to test your knowledge, but this time you’ll be identifying movies instead of your favorite tunes.
Get to know your neighbors! Nextdoor is a new way to create your very own private social network for your local community.
One of the things I love about my current neighborhood is that I know my neighbors. The area where I live is up-and-coming, but not without its problems. I like knowing that I can rely on the people who live in the houses near mine to call me if they see anything weird going on, especially when they know I’m not at home.
Are subscription services taking over your inbox? Use Unroll.me – your secret weapon to get your email back under control.
We wrote about Unroll.me in the past, while it was still in beta, but it’s so great, I had to tell you about it again. For me, finding Unroll.me was a godsend. My inbox was aswarm with subscription services, and the emails I really wanted to read were lost in the deluge.
It’s awful, but it happens to all of us. We hear that little “You’ve Got Mail” chime, and we get pumped – “Who wrote me? Who loves and remembers me? Who wanted to keep me in the loop of their awesome life events? Oh… it’s Best Buy. They are having another sale, and I’m still on their mailing list from 2004.”
