Fuse Chicken provided me with their products to facilitate this post. Opinions stated are my own. Ever since I've owned an iPhone, I've struggled with cables that break.

Every year I spent $30-100 on iPhone … [Read more...] about Indestructible iPhone Charger – Never Buy an iPhone Cable Again!
There are many challenges and difficulties associated with nursing school. One of the most annoying things I remember about my nursing education was the 100 pounds of books. I had to lug that enormous piles of non-fiction back and forth to class, clinicals, my car, my home, and anywhere else I might need to have access to them. It was a literal pain in the neck. I saw nursing students get so creative when it came to carrying their books. I saw them using rolling carts, rolling luggage, and one … [Read more...] about 6 Essential Smartphone Resources for Nursing Students

This Eggtronic Hub-It Sync and Charge Station review has been facilitated by a sample product. Opinions stated are my own. We have a lot of devices in our house. This can often lead to frustration and confusion when the favorite iPhone charger is occupied or my husband doesn’t remember that he put his iPhone on the charger in a different room. We get replacement charges, but they often tend to break, or somehow walk away. They also tend to clutter up a counter top. I like charging … [Read more...] about Eggtronic Hub-It Sync and Charge Station Review
Network scanning can really improve the workflow and user experience of nurse and other healthcare professionals on the front line. Let's dive into the benefits of network scanning.

There was a beautiful new computer, a high tech voice-over IP … [Read more...] about The Benefits of Network Scanning in Healthcare
These nerdy gift ideas and novelties will get a chuckle from even the coolest guys and gals. There are some pretty awesome things about being a nerd, and a few not-so-awesome things. The wedgies and bathroom confrontations in middle school are certainly not the high point of any nerds life. But later in life, when we're our former bullies boss it can put the awkward teenage years into perspective. Because nerds are often ahead of their time. In high school, nerds are obsessing … [Read more...] about 9 Nerdy Gift Ideas and Novelties
As a tech blogger I have the opportunity to try out tons of cool tech accessories. I remember coming back from CES one year with no less than 10 iPhone cases. It’s a perk of the job, no doubt, but receiving these “review units” often comes with an obligatory review and scrambling for something positive to say about products that are less than amazing. Fortunately, that is no the case with the STM Grip 2 for iPad Air. I had the pleasure of receiving this fabulous case (in purple) to test out … [Read more...] about STM Grip 2 for iPad Air Review
Hurry and run, don’t walk, to buy the SteelSeries Stratus iOS7 controller now! Honestly, you don’t even need to read the rest of the review. The controller is just that good.

Aside from perhaps Beats by Dr Dre, who by our investigation is not a real doctor, there haven't been any earthquakes in the headphone industry for quite sometime. That is until Aftershokz Bluez dropped it like its hot. And we do mean hot. Despite the these headphones being cleverly referred to as Bluez, we think these things are on fire! Of course, we already knew how awesome the Aftershokz line is. We reviewed the wired bone conduction headphones last year and concluded that this new … [Read more...] about AfterShokz BLuez: Open Ear Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones Review
Everyone is talking about the new Nintendo 2DS. It doesn’t fold, it's a bit cheaper, and it does away previous main selling point of glasses free 3D. Some may find this to be a benefit, but most people are saying they'd rather spend more money then sacrifice these functions. I say that if you own an iPhone, then you should just throw out the Nintendo Gameboy all together and wait for anyone of these amazing new iOS 7 MiFi controllers to be released. Don’t get me wrong I think the Nintendo 2DS … [Read more...] about Nintendo 2DS Versus iOS7 Controllers
