9 Nerdy Novelties

9 Nerdy Novelties

In high school nerds are obsessing over their hobbies, writing code, reading, and doing other things that will often make them wealthy adults.

Fortunately, that disposable income in adulthood can come with some perks. One of my personal favorites is all the nerdy novelties that once can acquire. Some of our favorites are listed below.

Things I’m Most Excited to See at CES 2014

I’ve been fortunate enough to attend CES once before so this time around I will have a slight experience advantage in my favor. The first time around I was so in awe of the entire event and Las Vegas in general that I wasn’t really able to take all the technology in like I would have liked. This year, however, I’m preparing and planning and doing my best to create something of a schedule that will help me to ensure I get a chance to see all the cool technologies and events at CES 2014.

Google Chromecast Review: Small Price – Big Value


Admittedly, I am not as gushing as many of the Apple fan girls and boys, but I totally dig my iPhone, iPad, and even my Apple TV. But these are just a few examples of how much we full on Nerdgasm over all things Apple. So when a product is released that throws a beat down on one our Apple products we figured we owe it to you to let you know. For this very reason, and well, because it’s awesome and CHEAP, we wanted to provide you with a Google Chromecast review take some time to tell you why Chromecast may be a better option than Apple TV.

Smartphone Users by the Numbers [Infographic]

The numbers of smartphones we have and the amount of money we spend on them continuously rises.

Something interesting to note is that even though the economy is poor we keep spending money on smartphones. Our spending decreased on clothing, food, and non-phone entertainment, but smartphone related entertainment rose by $67 annually. There are around 700k Android Apps, 600k iPhone Apps, and 100k Windows phone apps.

There’s an App for That: 10 Useful Apps for Medical Students


So, it turns out all of these were right, but I have had a little helping hand with that last one. On the first day of my 4th year I received a shiny new iPhone 4s from my medical school, and using it as an ‘educational tool’ was the last thing on my mind. I had been part of the Blackberry club for some time, watching in envy as people talked to their phones and actually had it answer them back (believe me, I have now experienced hours of fun with Siri.)

We were encouraged to download an app called Dr Companion because my university had bought a licence to it along with some books we could download.

iPhone 5 ATT Pre-Order Canceled: A Nerdy Tragedy (Avoided)

iphone 5

I’ve never bought an iPhone or iPad on release day. I’ve always been nervous or quite frankly, just didn’t have the cash.

But this year my little blog had earned the money to make the dream of owning an iPhone 5 on launch day a reality. At least, in theory.

I pre-ordered my iPhone 5 on September 14th. I eagerly awaited the 21st so that I could hold the aluminum and glass toy in my nerdy little hands.

Geek Vs Nerd: Which Are You? [Infographic]


Geek and nerd are sometimes seen as negative terms. But there’s no need to stand by with lemons when you can easily make lemonade. So we’ve taken the term geek and spiffed it up a little bit. We’ve given it a makeover and now apparently, that’s what the hipsters are calling themselves.

So is The Nerdy Nurse a Geek or a Nerd?


I’m a Gerd… or maybe a Neek?

I’m a little of both. Just subtract all the hip things away from the geek side, and add the coolest aspects of the nerd on, and that’s me. Oh, and I’m a tad bit socially awkward. But a loveable socially awkward I assure you. (And I promise my reality show would be far more intellectually challenging and far more entertaining that “Here’s Comes Honey Boo Boo” train wreck)

13 Awesome, Unique, and Nerdy iPhone Accessories


One of the coolest things about owning an iPhone is the boatload of accessories that are made to go with it. From nifty cases to clever audio accessories, I am constantly amazed by all the neat goodies you can get to accompany your iPhone.

So I took a little time and did some perusing to bring to your attention some iPhone accessories that I thought were pretty cool. I have to be honest. I get lost for hours looking at this sort of stuff. And yea… I have spend some cash on a nerdy novelty from time to time…

Intel Ultrabook: Social Experiments in Temptation


The following video is a pretty interesting social experiment performed by intel to see just how far people would go to get their hands on a new ultrabook.

I can’t say I’d have the cojones to walk up and break the glass and grab it for myself. Because, that’s, well… stealing. And this nerd don’t play that game. I am interested in knowing what the translation was on the glass. Because if it said “Break this glass for a free ultrabook,” I’d probably be climbing over people to do it.
