Have you noticed that lately there are these strange little black and white graphic boxes everywhere? They are on pages of magazines, on business cards, on clothing tags and on my fruit. Um… why?
They are called QR codes, or Quick Response codes, and they can be very helpful little things. They can also be nearly useless.
Google+ (plus.google.com) is the new social network created by Google which is like a combination of Twitter and Facebook. Some people are having a hard time wrapping their head around it so I’m here to give you five tips to help you wade into the pool that is Google+.
The iPhone 4 takes amazing pictures. There’s no doubt about that. But the pictures tend to lack interest. Everyone has that friend with the big fancy camera who knows how to use it takes amazing pictures. We can’t all have that hobby or talent. I for one am maxed out on hobbies. They are expensive and time consuming. Between knitting, sewing and at one time scrapbooking there’s no more “me” time to fill up. So what about the rest of us? We want interesting pictures, but don’t know our way around a DSLR. I can’t even work the menu on my point-and-shoot style camera. My expertise stops at knowing how to turn the flash off and on.

The day the window for pre-ordering opened my husband was up at 3:00 a.m. attempting to order. Mine was ordered at 8:30 a.m and his at 3:30 p.m. We don’t mess around.
We both have iPad 3Gs.
My point is this: WE LOVE APPLE PRODUCTS. Can’t live without them. They are a part of our annual family budget. It’s kind of a big deal.
Well, it’s been a month since my phone came in. I’ve loved it (even though I really wanted a white one) and cared for it and kept it away from the 10 month old. But my love has been tainted because it drops just about every call. Not because of the antenna issue that’s getting a lot of press.
My problem is the proximity sensor.
The phone doesn’t realize it’s up against my face, so
