Want to keep you iPhone 4 and iPad 2 data safe?  Set your device to self destruct!

Tablets and smartphones can be repositories for loads of sensitive data.  If you’re using your device for business and it’s on ActiveSync with MS Exchange, just in case you lose it (or you’re fired), chances are your employer can wipe your device on the admin side.

Technology for your plants? 

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a hard time keeping your plants alive. I have a money tree, lovingly named Homey; it’s a surprise he’s survived nearly 4 years under my care.  Maybe it’s that I choose plants ill-suited for my home or perhaps I just don’t know the proper amount of light or water they require?  Whatever the case, now there’s advanced technology for your plants! It’s called PlantSmart, a digital plant care sensor device.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching (Sunday, May 8th)!  What is the best gadget for mom?  Well, if you’re thinking of gifting mom a gadget, now’s the time to place your order online!  Wondering what to get?  I’ve got you covered!  Here’s a list of my 5 picks for the hottest gadgets for mom this Mother’s Day.

  1. Apple iPad 2: it’s simple to use and requires no prior knowledge of computers –great for less tech savvy moms.  If mom likes to read, she can download her favorite books and use it as an eReader.  You can get the iPad engraved with a special, personalized Mother’s Day message from Apple’s website. (starting at $499) – I OWN ONE AND LOVE IT!
  2. Amazon Kindle: If you think mom would enjoy an eReader but you’re not spending $500 on a Mother’s Day gift, you can opt for a Kindle from Amazon.  It has a paper-like Pearl electronic-ink display (great even under bright sunlight), a one month battery life, and its ultra-light weight, at only 8.5 ounces. (starting at $114)

The single best travel accessory is this digital scale for luggage –it’ll save you money!

Airlines nickel and dime flyers like never before.  Once upon a time, long, long ago, a flight meant free food, a blanket, and even a pillow.  Now you’re lucky if the headset is free and there’s a bag of pretzels involved.  What’s worse: we even have to pay for our luggage!  While most airlines let you get away with your first checked bag free, there’s a catch: it must be less than 50lbs.

Our friends at Apple have considered everything; even a cleverly hidden way for you to Orientation Lock your iPad 2 / iPhone 4 screen.

When lying in bed with your iPad or iPhone, as you move around, the screen tends to move around with you. While the feature can be really functional at time, at other times it can be really inconvenient (like when you’re trying to read from your Borders eBook, for example).
