Technology Can Lead to Better Health

Lisa Niday - Saturday, July 13, 2013

On the surface this title might sound like an oxymoron considering many are of the opinion that technology in our lives leads to more stress. I would contend it's how you use the technology that determines whether it is a tool or it leads to stress. I recently purchased a Fitbit Flex for a birthday present to myself. A good friend of mine had tried the Fitbit and the Jawbone Up and I was in the market to purchase a tracker so I benefitted from his testing and then bought a Fitbit Flex. He had the Fitbit and put it in his pocket, although he indicated he had lost a couple and liked his Jawbone because you wore it on your wrist. I waited for the Fitbit Flex which puts the Fitbit into a wrist bracelet to get the best of both worlds in my opinion. Read more

Postagram-A New Take on Postcards

Lisa Niday - Sunday, December 09, 2012

Now the positive spin is they were at least thinking of you on vacation. Technology has once again intervened and really added a great new spin to the old way to let others know about your vacation. Read more

It's true that the era of digital photography forever changed photography, but today photography has changed a great deal due to the advent of smart phones. The smart phones have proliferated the number of photographers and this will only continue to grow. I was amazed at my grandson's t-ball game when every parent had a DSLR. Since photography has spread and gone mainstream, I thought a discussion about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom might be in order. Read more

Apps Make Your Phone More than a Phone

Lisa Niday - Tuesday, January 04, 2011

My husband often questions why I would pay so much for my cell service, mind you he has a trac phone and just learned he had an address book on it. I try to explain that my cell phone is more than a phone. For starters it does have the basic phone functions, but I have an electronic contacts which sync to my contacts on my computer, so no more lugging paper address books (he still does, spends countless hours rewriting all this information each year). Read more
