When I attended CES I had the privilege to meet up with the Honeywell folks. They make some amazing products, one of which I was ask to review: The Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat with Voice Control. I’ve had the amazing little thermostat for a few weeks and have had a great time with it so far.
Kids of today are growing up in a tech-savvy environment, which presents an ideal opportunity for parents to leverage interactive content for their learning, development and social skills. University of Washington researchers conducted several studies and found out that interactive reading played an important role in development of literacy skills. Also, it was important for expanding vocabularies and understanding of printed words among preschoolers and toddlers.
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.
Well Esty is basically where you can find almost anything cool and crafty you could ever think of. If you can dream it, then chances are that someone has made it and it’s own Etsy. This makes shopping for awesome Christmas items both incredibly awesome, but sometimes very overwhelming. When there’s so much awesome handmade stuff to choose from, how on earth do you narrow it down to the right nerdy items?
Have no fear, The Nerdy Nurse is here! We’ve narrowed it down to 12 awesome Etsy items for this holiday seasons. That’s one for each of the 12 days of Christmas!
But seriously, we here at The Nerdy Nurse are geeks ourselves and we love gadgets whether they are in our pockets or our kitchen. Because we know that you no doubt love kitchen gadgets (and feasting on a delicious holiday meal) as much as us we’ve taken to time to compile a list of turkey tech and food prep gadgets that will surely elevate your holiday gathering to epic classification.
I remember the first time I was told that I needed glasses. I was in college and sitting in the back of the room. The board looked terribly fuzzy and I wasn’t quite sure if maybe I hadn’t got enough sleep or if the teacher just had terrible hand writing. I asked a few classmates around me if they were having trouble reading the board. A few of them mumbled something that was not comprehendible. Two of them gave a succinct “nope”. I was a back of the class kind of girl so I just toughed it out for the day, but I did actually want to see what was going on so I sat closer to the board the next time
One of the coolest perks of being a blogger is being invited to exclusive events, tours, and parties. Last weekend my family and I were invited to Six Flags Over Georgia to hang out with Stacy Debroff (who is like totally internet famous) of Mom Central Consulting and meet some other really cool Atlanta mom bloggers. This was all made possible by Wet Ones.
Communication and information are the big concepts in healthcare and ironically, they’re also the big movers of the Internet in general. Think about it – we can keep in contact with friends and family, as well as co-workers, bosses, and even your doctor. Information can be shared – as long as you’re careful about it, and abide by HIPAA guidelines – with anyone you allow access to. This can be great or bothersome for us nurses. Think about it, you want a patient to tell you as much information as they can, however having them think they have something they don’t because WebMD mentioned it in an ad isn’t helpful.
Microsoft’s Don Mattrick has addressed concerns about the compulsory connectivity requirements of Xbox One.
“”Fortunately we have a product for people who aren’t able to get some form of connectivity; it’s called Xbox 360,” said Mattrick.
“If you have zero access to the Internet, that is an offline device.”
Mattrick is aware of the kinds of gamers who’ll be missing out on Xbox One, and “absolutely” anticipated some blowback, but went on to reiterate he feels they have made the right call.
At any rate, Huggies Brazil is revolutionizing social media for babies by having a device that clips on to the front of an infants diaper and sends a tweet when they pee. Now the whole world can know how often your little one goes to the potty, and since you’re too busy on social media to actually check and see if your child is wet, you can get a notification on your phone. Oh, and any of your followers… or maybe your babies followers…. will get a notification as well.
