Never Get Lost Again! – Droid DNA

I’m a mess when it comes to directions. I have no idea what Route/Turnpike/Parkway takes me anywhere. Which is why I always rely on my GPS. However, if I’m walking around a large city I’m obviously not carrying around my bulky GPS with me.

 

Recently my husband and I drove into Philly to visit friends who recently had a baby. Because it’s Philly we ended up having to park a million miles away. We got out of our car and had no idea where we were cause we were blocks away from our friend’s house.

 

Wait a minute! I said. I have GPS on my phone! Perfect! With ease, I entered in our destination on my Droid DNA. I had the option of it giving me directions or navigation. With the navigation feature it will speak to you and verbally give you directions just like a GPS you would use in your car. Love that! Especially since our hands were filled with baked ziti, meatballs and tons of gifts for the little one. I kept the Droid DNA in my pocket and had it on navigation and we arrived at our destination no problem! droid_dna_power_screen

 

I’ve seen other phones that offer a GPS but they typically only show directions and don’t tell them to you. That’s my favorite feature on a GPS. I don’t want to have to read and pay attention to a screen I need to pay attention to the road.

 

The Droid DNA is perfect for those who live in the city and need directions easily, as well as anyone who doesn’t own a GPS too. But honestly, the Droid DNA has so many cool features besides the GPS. That just happens to be one of my faves. I love its large screen, the colors are super vibrant and I love the sound quality. After all it is Beats Audio.

 

Stay tuned for more on how the Droid DNA supports the way I live.

AND – Never get lost again with the Droid DNA!

Join us for FRIDAY #VZWBuzz Chats on Twitter at 3pm EST.

Microsoft Luncheon

 

I took a lunch break from the Blogher ’12 conference because I was invited to attend a luncheon at Microsoft.

 

Microsoft was doing makeovers during the Blogher ’12 conference with famed fashion stylist Jeannie Mai. I was thrilled to be a part of the #WindowStyle luncheon held at the Microsoft offices in New York. It’s not that often you get to visit a place like the Microsoft offices.

 

First off the spread was amazing. Being that I married an Italian I was in heaven with all the antipasto. I even chose “The Godfather” sandwich to eat. Other lunchers questioned the food. “What’s that?” they would say. So I helped them brave the world of antipasto with prosciutto, mozzarella, roasted peppers and more. It really was delish!

We ate, chatted and then Jeannie came out. You may have watched online as it was done as a Spreecast with a few people there in person. Jeannie offered great fashion tips to people online and that were at our luncheon. The best tip I walked away with was to put pads on the bottom of your shoes (yes the bottom) as it will keep your feet more comfy. We are more comfy walking on carpet right? So the theory makes sense. She also talked a lot about confidence. How women need to embrace their imperfections. Confidence is beauty!

 

Samsung Galaxy Tablet 8.9 – Product Review

Guess what I got for Christmas? Audrey McClelland is one of Santa’s elves, I’m convinced. I participated in the #ATT Twitter giveaway with @AudreyMcClellan the week of Christmas and won the Samsung Galaxy Tablet 8.9. I was thrilled! I was dying for a tablet as I’m always on the go and a tablet is perfect to throw in your purse and bring to events, meetings with clients or just to keep you busy while waiting for an appointment. Oh did I mention not only did I win it the week of Christmas it arrived on my door before Christmas. Yay! Merry Christmas to me!

This tablet is an expression of you – not its maker.

If you buy the wrong tablet, you’re at the mercy of the manufacturer regarding how much you can customize or personalize your screens. But the beauty of Android is that you have much greater flexibility to arrange things however you want. You’ll have multiple home screens to compose and design, plus live wallpapers to express your mood and personality. The Tab also offers you the freedom of TouchWiz®, the intuitive user interface that allows you to quickly drag and drop your icons, widgets and Live Panels with only the touch of a finger. Now, reorganizing your tablet’s menus and navigational options will be simple and straightforward.

A screen so lifelike you’ll want to touch it.

The Tab’s WXGA-TFT touchscreen redefines high resolution. Every image has amazing color, radiance, and clarity to capture all the detail of real life. The Tab’s dimensions give it an aspect ratio that lets you see more of the original image, without cropping or black bars. Now when you watch a movie with $100 million in special effects, you get the full impact. When you read eBooks or emails, every letter of text is razor sharp. Video chatting is more like talking face-to-face. And when your finger touches the responsive screen, every function is smooth as silk.

Performs at a higher level. So you can, too.

Surf the internet just like on a PC, and get the full enjoyment of Adobe® Flash® Player compatible sites, games, and videos. The Dual core 1GHz processor runs every function and app effortlessly. A full gig of ram gives you plenty of memory. The Tab’s Android ™ 3.1, Honeycomb platform is the proven gold standard to perform the full range of Google services like optimized Gmail™ and Google Maps™.

Does several things at once. Sound familiar?

Multi-tasking is the new normal. None of us have time to do only one thing at a time. The Tab keeps you up-to-the-second with widgets and live panels that update constantly. And you can have more than one window open at a time to bounce around on. Access the Android Market™ for thousands of apps that keep your life moving with the speed you need. Sometimes your Tab is for work, sometimes it’s for play, and sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.

Take gaming to the next level.

The Tab 8.9 is gaming heaven. It has the speed and processing power to run any Android or Adobe® Flash® Player compatible game with no buffering, stalling, downloads, or plug-ins. And the screen shows every dragon’s scale, every gold doubloon, and every sword glint with eye-popping, heart-pounding detail.

You can’t be too thin.

It’s only .34″ from front to back, which is about as thin as a typical ballpoint pen. The Tab also weighs just 447 grams – so light that you’ll hardly notice it in your briefcase or purse. The body is sleek yet easy to grip, and fits comfortably in your hand. It’s the perfect portable device to take anywhere and connect through any Wi-Fi hotspot without monthly service fees or carrier contracts.

Your Tab is the hub of your social universe.

For social networking, the Tab offers Social Hub, the pre-loaded app which organizes all your favorite sites in one, easy-to-access location.

Watch movies and TV shows anytime and everywhere.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 gives you access to Media Hub, where movies and TV shows can be rented or downloaded for purchase. When you choose to purchase, your content can be stored in the cloud and viewed on up to five other Media Hub enabled devices, or even watched on your television through Smart Show with an HDMI video-out adapter (sold separately). You can watch it now, or later for offline viewing. The list of content available is refreshed daily to include the latest episodes of last night’s TV shows. When you choose to watch something, you can begin watching within minutes with progressive download.

Want more places to get movies? Not a problem. The Google Videos app is preloaded, letting you rent thousands of movies starting at $1.99. Get Amazon Instant movies with Unlimited Streaming videos offering more than 2,000 movies and 500 TV shows. If you’re an Amazon Prime user, you get movies absolutely free with membership. Many movies and videos are Adobe® Flash® Player compatible, and you’ll be able to watch them all. Most networks offer free shows on their own websites, and you’ll be able to access the free content with a browser based website for TV shows. Want more options? Get the IMDB app from Android Market to watch movie trailers, or the Vevo App for premium music videos.

It’s like a bookworm’s heaven.

The Amazon Kindle app is preloaded, giving you access to the largest selection of the books (including New York best sellers) and periodicals people want to read. You even get free sample books, chapters and popular classics.

Let’s Talk About Tech Baby – Sony VAIO Product Review

Sony VAIO!!!!! Welcome to my life! Where have I been without you?

 

I was in desperate need of a technology makeover and seriously need a new computer. Enter @TheOnlineMom (Monica from The Online Mom) and the #TheOnlineMom Twitter party. I was so excited to win Monica’s giveaway that I literally freaked out, ran away from my computer and she thought she had lost me. Not true! I was freaking out to my hubby and father in law. Have you seen the Sony VAIO? I mean really! It’s beautiful.

 

Monica & I

Being that it was the week of Christmas and Monica and I aren’t too far away from each other we both drove about an hour and a half to meet up IRL (In Real Life) so I could get my brand new Sony VAIO. We met up on the Turnpike (INSERT JOKE HERE – What exit?) in Teaneck, NJ. It’s so much fun to meet one of your tweep’s in person. Which is why I love Blogher so much, but that’s another story.

 

My hubby loaded the Sony VAIO into the car, not without taking a few photos of course and then we headed on what surely was longer than an hour and a half home where we would hook up my brand new PC.

He took it out of the box and OMG it’s gorgeous! I mean gorgeous! I’ve never thought of a PC as being beautiful but my goodness. All we had to do was put the stand on my desk (you can also mount it to the wall), put the PC on top and plugged it in. Easiest setup ever!

 

I pressed on and the color! The color and screen is brilliant! Speaking of screen, did I mention that the Sony VAIO is a touch screen? Oh yeah! It’s a touch screen but it also comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse so whichever you prefer that’s what you can do.  And at 24” this screen is insane.

 

My hubby immediately downloaded Google Chrome since there is so much RAM on the Sony VAIO and now I could finally test it out. Surfing the web is super-duper fast. I’ve never been able to surf the web so quickly in my life. My smartphone is pretty fast but other technology not so much. Being in the social media industry, the ability for me to surf the web fast and feverishly is very important.


I also installed Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 so I would be able to use Excel and Word. Super easy to install as well.

 

Ok so I was super excited to play around with Windows Live and Moviemaker. In no time at all I became a filmmaker. No really I’m a filmmaker now. Take a look at my Gingerbread House Extravaganza video I wrote, produced, edited, etc. all by myself in literally a matter of minutes. Look out Spielberg! After I made my video it was very easy to upload it to YouTube using Windows Live. (Feel free to take a look at this previous post HERE.)

 

 

I also love that I can just drag & drop photos/files from my email into my desktop. It is so user friendly.

 

I had been holding out on listening to music, until today. I finally downloaded the Adele cd. This was the perfect opportunity to test out the sound of my VAIO. I did a double take because I thought Adele was in my office.  The Dolby surround sound makes it sound like I’m right there live at an Adele concert.

 

I’m telling you this computer has absolutely everything!
