Monday Morning Quarterbacking the Commercials and Half-Time Show

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Feb 3, 2014 12:47:00 PM

As I closely watched the trending on social media yesterday during the SuperBowl, there were a ton of people waiting for the halftime show, then planned to change the channel. Either the cross section of people I was listening to loved Bruno Mars and had no desire to watch the game or it was that lame and since the commercials can be found elsewhere now, watching the Superbowl Live seems to have lost some of it's appeal. Last week I posted a guide for Superbowl, today I am posting the Post Superbowl guide!

Family Locator Filters out the Treats from the Tricks

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Oct 28, 2013 3:14:00 PM

Halloween is a fun and mysterious time. However you want to protect your family from things that go bump in the night. Halloween is the perfect time to have Verizon's Family Locator installed on your smartphone so you know where your little ghosts and goblins are while they are out trick-or-treating. You may have kids that are on the age cusp where they are starting to become independent and want to go out on their own. Family Locator is a great way to keep some peace of mind when you send them out into the night.

Cellular Chloe's Top 5 Vacation Tech Tips

Posted by Cellular Chloe on Jun 17, 2013 3:37:00 PM

Tech tips for Whatever Type of “__cation” you are Planning This Summer

Whether you plan to hit the open road or stay local when the kiddies get out of school for summer vacation, I’d like to share some handy vacation tech tips.

1. Stay off Facebook
Even if your Facebook account is on security lockdown and only your immediate family can see it, I NEVER advocate posting either vacation status or pictures until you return. So many people don’t take into consideration that you are basically saying, “My whole family is in Florida, here we are at Space Mountain in Disney…why don’t you stop by our house at your convenience (right up until I post that I have safely landed at the airport) and help yourself to all of our valuables.”  It’s truly amazing how smart and dumb people can be at the same time.

2. Watch your house from your phone
Take advantage of the awesome technology that you can connect to your cell phone so you can monitor your house while you are away.

Wireless Gift Guide: The BEST Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Posted by Cellular Chloe on May 6, 2013 3:52:00 PM

Mother's Day is next week so together we are going to find the BEST gift for your Mom. I am going to go out on a limb and say that 8 out of 10 Mom's have a cell phone. And if yours doesn't, you should get her one, at least for emergency purposes. Some Mom's just don't want to be bothered with the technology and that's ok but for the ones that do I'm going to help you figure out a GREAT gift to get them.

The first item is a MUST HAVE and I personally don't know how anyone functions without one. (I have 2).
