How Smart Is Your House?


How many times have you left your home and had to turn around and go back to ensure you locked the door or shut off the iron. Maybe you were on your way to a meeting or appointment or heading off on vacation and were prevented from going back home to check. Imagine being able to use your smartphone like a universal remote control for your home? Thanks to Verizon products and services, that concept is now a reality.

Smart Tips for New Smartphone/Tablet Users

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Jan 24, 2013 10:27:00 PM

So...you got a new Smartphone or Tablet?


1. Get a good case.

With today’s smartphones and tablets getting longer and thinner, they’ve become very fragile.  It’s usually the first drop that takes your phone out of commission.  However, for those who are a tad adventurous or who happen to be a bit clumsy, there are some awesome cases available.  For all makes and models of phones, and many tablets there are the ever trusty Otterbox cases that range from a pretty decent amount of protection to a hefty amount just shy of a bunker.   If you're an iPhone user and you subject your phone to dirt, water, snow or shock you’d want to look at getting a Lifeproof case.

Charity Miles. The New App in My 15 Must-Have Apps

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Nov 5, 2012 1:52:00 PM

Recently I had the pleasure to meet and walk about six and a half miles in New York’s Central Park with Gene Gurkoff. Gene is the is the CEO and founder of Charity Miles, which is essentially a smartphone app but it goes way beyond downloading yet another app to your phone. 

Gene's grandfather has Parkinson's Disease. Like many of us, when someone we love is afflicted with a disease, we become increasingly aware of that disease and begin to notice fundraisers and walks, bracelets, etc that support the research related to finding a cure. If able, we sign up for walks or marathons and enlist our family, friends and co-workers to sponsor us and begin to try to do our part to help raise money for that cause that has become dear to us. This is exactly what Gene did and as you are probably aware, there are only so many times you can tap into your friend's and co-workers wallets.

Smartphones Provide Safe Trick or Treating

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Oct 22, 2012 5:24:00 PM

If you read my blog, surely you know my propensity for snarkiness or I prefer to refer to it as "telling it like it is. Occasionally a subject arises that even I can't make fun of and that is safety for your children. I'd like to talk about a few options using your smartphone (and in some cases basic phone) to keep track of your family. That doesn't mean just the kids. Often times this might apply to the older generation of your family or a family member with special medical needs.
Here are some options.

Take your iPhone Waterskiing

Posted by Cellular Chloe on May 21, 2012 3:12:00 PM

Summer is just around the corner, I can tell because I see a deluge of bathing suits at every blasted store I have the misfortune of walking into. I may not be ready for summer but all of my gadgets are! Along with summer comes the threat of water while engaging in extreme sports, okay, maybe it is just standing in a kiddie pool to cool off, but the potential of dropping my phone is insurmountable. Have you ever seen how clumbsy I am? I am just a mishap away from needing a new phone.  I once dropped an ex-boyfriend’s phone into a cocktail. Vodka/cranberry, I think it was! The phone just barely fit in the glass to begin with and I managed to drop it straight into the glass parting the ice cubes as it submerged.

Zomm: The Wireless Leash

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Mar 5, 2012 3:10:00 PM

ZOMM


This is where the term Wireless Leash comes from. Using Bluetooth® wireless technology, the ZOMM alerts the user when it becomes separated from his/her mobile phone by vibrating, flashing its lights and sounding an alarm. It's pretty obnoxious so you won't miss it. It gets increasingly louder. The Wireless Leash by ZOMM is also a fully-functional hands-free speakerphone with one touch answering for those times when it isn't safe to talk on your phone. It has a quick release mechanism for easy removal from the rest of your keys. The additional Car Kit has a mount that clips on your visor.

Let's Have a "Look See" at Monday Matters

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Mar 5, 2012 11:13:00 AM

Good Monday morning. I hope where ever you are the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and crocuses are peeking through the soil. Okay, I'll cut the #$&% I was reprimanded this weekend from a blog subscriber for slacking on the blog. So without further ado, my snarky butt is not leaving this oh-so-uncomfortable office chair until I'm done.

If Emily Post Owned a Cell Phone

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Jul 15, 2011 4:16:00 PM

The best way to start any article where you suggest good behavior and hope people will abide by it is to reference the Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity. One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
