If you have a pet, hopefully you are like me, and treat it like a part of your family. Well, why wouldn't you? They are easier to train than your kids, they don't talk back like your spouse and they are always genuinely happy to see you. The only drawback is feeding them and you'd have to feed another member of your family anyway but it's all in return for uncionditional love, all the time. So you wouldn't want that to go missing, right?

Power On The Go
Even though todays wireless devices are pretty advanced in their use of thinner cell batteries, they'll still never manage to give you all the power you need in a day especially if you aren't sitting next to an outlet all day.

It's really quite genius and so many people have no idea they exist! They are definitely a best kept secret (that I really want EVERYONE to know about) in the wireless industry. These are a great gift idea for that person you know that has everything...Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation, Birthday, and naturally Christmas/Hannakah!

Tech the TV
With all the technology available to stream to your TV there's no reason you can't watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (Netflix), Frosty the Snowman or Miracle on 34th Street (Hulu+) whenever you please. If you are a member of Redbox Instant, Hulu+ or Netflix, choose from hundreds of great Christmas classic movies as well as tons of Christmas specials or the Christmas episode of your favorite TV show. If you don't have a Playstation, XBOX or Wii you can pick up a device like the Google Chromecast ($35) that will stream videos like below to your TV. (Sorry about the ads-they only take 30 seconds.)
How much would you love me if I could tell you what 1 in 3 people want for Christmas?

I have been telling the world (or at least everyone who reads this blog!) for the past few years about passwords, and why its so important to use something that isn't easy too guess, not to use them for all sites and to change them. (Click here for that blog article). Of course it is a pain in the ^$$ but that is what hackers are counting on! Well, the day has come where I have been hacked. I actually didn't have too bad of a fall out but here's what happened...
