If you like gift cards, you'll like Wrapp
Social gifting is the latest Internet trend, made clear by the numerous services cropping up for making group gifting easier (GiftSimple, for example). Much easier if you know what it's like to take two kids under the age of four to the mall.

If you also prefer the gift card route, you'll like a new service called
 Wrapp which has some amazing features via Facebook.

Wrapp is a social gift card service that works through Facebook. You simply download the mobile app to your phone (iOS or Android) and access your Facebook account. Upon logging in, you'll see whose birthdays are coming up and the various gift cards available for you to give them. So it's kind of like a gift-giving and don't-forget-your-friend's-birthday service all in one   Read more

2011 ForbesWoman Top 100 Websites For Women

Posted on June 23, 2011 by Beth B.
I am not only fascinated by Forbes lists but I enjoy reading the Forbes website. Last year it was a wonderful surprise to be on the 2010 Top 100 Websites for Women. Today I got another thrilling surprise – is included in the Forbes Woman 2011 Top 100 Websites for Women.

Had a blog which was pretty cool and changed to website in January of this year.  Didn’t have a lot of time to review but an article on extending battery life did catch my eye.

Microsoft has even gotten into the act:

Got carried away, even found a site written by a psychologist where she is featuring a MONTH OF MOMS, actually having guest bloggers who are moms for one month.
Here is what she says about herself and the blog is called simply,  Dr Stepanie,  as a marketeteer I really like this one.

“Welcome to Dr. Stephanie - Life through the eyes of a psychologist. I am a clinical psychologist in suburban Denver, Colorado and work with adults, teens, and tweens. I am also a regular gal who enjoys family, friends, and having fun - just like everyone else. In this blog I write about technology, parenting, friendship, and pop culture - all with a mental health twist. Thanks for stopping by.

Moms Adopt More Mobile Technology
“Use of mobile technology by moms has increased substantially in the past year in all categories of use. More than 90 percent of moms surveyed use a mobile device, up 10 percent from 2010. And 44 percent of moms surveyed are using smart phones. Moms are using their mobile devices increasingly as a means of communication with family members. Moms are texting with their spouses 17 percent more than they were a year earlier.”

3.)  XPrintServer – LANTRONIX introduced the xPrintServer wireless printing solution for iPad, iPhone, and iOS devices.  Do you have a lot of pictures/documents/webpages/even email’s on your iPhone or iPad that you wish you could easily print?  There’s no need to link up to your computer anymore to print them out.  Just plug in the xPrintServer into your network and you can easily print to up to 10 connected printers (wireless or wired).  No apps or software to download.  The xPrintServer automatically discovers the printers for you.  What a great device for home or the office.  the xPrintServer sells for $149.95 and will be available soon.
