Tug

I was beyond bummed when I learned Apple killed the MagSafe on their latest laptops. I am clumsy and tend to trip over cables and thanks to MagSafe my laptops didn’t go flying. No longer.

Meet Tug: It works with any power cord you might trip on, by placing the magnetic break-away connection at the outlet. Smart.

It’s like having access to multiple cameras in one device. And the app it comes with lets you edit on the fly. Two swissmiss thumbs up!

From there, they can tap your face to instantly text, call or view your Instagram profile. You can also create your own gallery of Homies on your phone’s home screen!

If my daughter had a phone she’d be all over this.

SayHi Translate App

Say Hi Translate

While on vacation in Switzerland, Ella (9) made a friend that didn’t speak English, so I downloaded them the SayHi Translate App. The app covers 43 languages and dialects. While it’s not always perfect, it sure is helpful and makes for a good laugh here and then. What an amazing time we live in.

This brand-new called Loopimal by YATATOY lets your kid (or yourself) playfully enter the world of computer sequencing.

Sony’s new LED bulb with an integrated Bluetooth speaker made me look and wonder. I can’t figure out if this is cool or totally absurd. I am weirdly intrigued.

Also, that photo of the couple lovingly smiling at their lamp.
