A ‘how to’ become a biker girl story. I bought a Kawasaki Ninja beginners bike; how the trials of dating led me to it, and why this motorcycle woman inspires authenticity.

A Foreign Encounter

Last November I began dating a man; let’s call him ‘Don.’ Being quite the charmer, when Don offered me a motorcycle ride around Manhattan during our second date, I –a woman that had never desired to get on a bike—excitedly said, “ok!” Motorcycles had, up until that point, been pretty terrifying. But I guess oxytocin will make you do crazy things (more on that in another post), and so lo and behold, one Saturday in late November, I took a ride around Manhattan on the back of a Red Ducati. As it turned out, it was one of the most lyrical days of my life.

We technology bloggers are a non-political, fun-loving and warm bunch of folk.  That’s why I have so much love in my heart for you!  We like sticking together and helping each other along on our respective journeys through the blogosphere.

Ever heard of a shape-shifting battery?  We’ve all been in a situation where we desperately needed a battery…We rummage through the cabinets and find batteries of numerous sizes but the one we need is never there.

Well a new shape shifting battery design promises to solve this problem for good!

Michael Arrington of TechCrunch is “CRUNCHED” by Arianna Huffington and AOL. 

Let’s face it; the last time you logged onto your AOL account was sometime around 1998… and anytime you hear the acronym AOL (short for America Online), the first thought that pops into your head is that classic mailbox alert; “You’ve Got Mail!” that used to make you feel like you had a life.  So why all of the AOL news all of a sudden?!

I was on FOX News Live earlier today with Kimberly Guilfoyle explaining the TechCrunch-AOL, baby momma drama. Check out the clip:

SheBytes gets a major facelift via a site redesign by the Small Business Authority (SBA)!

A Blog is an Organism

While this may strike you as an unlikely idea, it’s true: a blog is indeed an organism.  And like all blogs, SheBytes is alive.  SheBytes was born in early 2011 to happy parent; Renee Schmidt (that’s me!)  Since that fateful day, SheBytes has been a constant concern. I make sure SheBytes gets all the attention “she” deserves (yeah, that’s right; I decided to give my blog a gender). And, I provide for her by feeding SheBytes with all the nourishing content she needs to remain viable.  Now let’s fast forward a bit:

Today is the first day SheBytes is up with a brand spanking new, face-lift-redesign, courtesy of our dedicated and dear friends at the Small Business Authority (The SBA).

Fashion and Technology MIX!

Mashable published a great article about Rent the Runway; I got excited when I read it and so I decided I ought to paraphrase it for a couple of reasons:

  1. I love inspiring women; and Rent the Runway was started by two female entrepreneurs
  2. It’s a company that melds fashion and technology
  3. Rent the Runway makes haute luxury fashion affordable 
  4. It’s about women in high-tech; an uber minority

U.S. Seeks to Block AT&T Merger with T-Mobile

September 1, 2011 – 12:25PM Segment

Posted by Renee Schmidt

I recently posted about the U.S. government’s meddling in the merger between AT&T and T-Mobile by having filed an antitrust lawsuit to prevent the deal from going through.  

It’s clear that wireless will be the communication and computing technology of the future, as sales of smartphones and tablets/iPads surge.  Competition among mobile carriers, then, is clearly important to both consumers and the economy.
