Tech The Halls! Adding Fun and Sanity to Your Holiday with Technology

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Dec 16, 2013 4:13:00 PM

Here's a few apps and devices that will add some fun and sanity to your holiday!

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.)

Halloween Apps for Your Spooky Smartphone

Zombie Booth

Zombie Booth is sooo creepy, you  have to download and try it just to get a sense for how possessed you can look...however I must warn you. You only get a few trials, then in order to keep using it you have to download other software etc. to get access to "virus" yourself further, otherwise you can only get one virus a day (strangely - I never envisioned myself saying those words). All you do is take a selfie, then it does the rest. The creepy part is that instead of just creating a still, it somehow makes a wicked creepy movie. Also available for iOS devices. Here's mine:

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Oct 7, 2013 3:58:00 PM

Every time a new iOS update is released, there always seems to be fallout a few days after it takes place. The last major release which was iOS6 caused severe battery drain. The biggest issue with iOS7 seems to be lack of support for 3rd party accessories. There are several other features that iProduct users have found to be less than favorable.

5 Ways to Make a Big City Your Own with Your Smartphone

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Sep 19, 2013 9:50:00 AM
Big cities have all kinds of excitement that we small town folks miss out. I grew up in a Borough. That basically means it's not even big enough to be considered a town, never mind a city! When I travel to cities like Washington, DC I revel at all the technological opportunities that take years (if at all) to make it to make small cites.

Park-Get out and Walk!

There's nothing worse than having to keep running to a meter for a continued stay. Finally you can pay for a meter using your cell phone. In Washington, DC the parking is very complex. On many streets, you can park at night but not during the day. Once I made sense of where and when I could park, I could pay for my parking on my smartphone using the ParkMobile app. Its pretty straightfoward but there are several options for payment. Check out the video.

Wireless Devices: Which Movie/TV Streaming Service is Best for You?

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Apr 8, 2013 5:23:00 PM

There are so many ways to obtain, rent, buy, lease, poach, beg, borrow or steal multimedia these days. If you decide to subscribe to a service, who's is the best? I think it all comes down to what works best for you based on the types of movies you watch and how/where you watch them There are several choices. Also notice the comparison of what a fairly new movie cost to rent or buy (standard definition) or if it is not available at all.
