Easily make your cat jump cat jump cat jump with Cinemagram

Who can resist those short little movies (gifs) where somebody’s demented cat leaps 10 feet straight into the air to attack the ceiling fan pull — over and over and over? You know your baby / dog / boa constrictor … Continue reading

You don’t want to be a dork reading from notecards in the 21st century: Best Prompter

There I was in front of a rather geeky group of people pitching an Internet startup project in a competition — and reading my notes from a little spiral notebook. I felt like a dinosaur, even though all the other … Continue reading

An immersive design experience that happens to be a mobile game: PUK

You should know by now I don’t do games, but I do do pretty, and PUK, despite the rather unfortunate associations its name evokes (probably because I’m a girl and hockey was not the first thing I thought of…), is … Continue reading

Not thrilled that I wear a size 90 bra in France but at least now I know: Unisize

Since I first traveled to Europe in the 80s, the EU came up with standard clothing sizes because every damn country practically had its own system. I shouldn’t complain, since the US is like one of the last two countries … Continue reading

I could wile away the hours… taking movie trivia quizzes with Trailerpop

I got so disgusted with the “We Saw Your Boobs” number, and the fact that the smug little twirp game show host they hired to MC the Oscars pointed out Jennifer Aniston’s “exotic” dancing past, that I turned off this … Continue reading

Anonymously send and receive photos and see how long the boys can play nice: Rando

I mailed five postcards to total strangers at the age of 11, when I still believed in the magic of chain letters, and I was sure I’d get thousands of postcards from people all over the world. I got one … Continue reading

I’d rather you not put words in my mouth, but you can do it anyway with Bubbsie

Just the other day I told you about TitleFx, a rather classy option for adding text to photos. This is something altogether different, for when you’re in a goofier mood. Or maybe a creative one! I’ve been wanting to do … Continue reading

On my birthday I had 4 makeovers while drinking my morning tea — trying on makeup apps

Buying make-up and discovering when you get home that it doesn’t look good is a drag. And it’s the only option for people who are freaked out by testers. (Mom always told me I’d get TB from testers when I … Continue reading

It doesn’t get more zen than jigsaw puzzles, and we can all use a little of that: Join the Hearts

Grandma’s garage had shelves and shelves of ancient, semi-flattened jigsaw puzzle boxes, which I’d paw through on long summer days at her place as a kid. (There was a certain stress involved because you never knew if there were pieces … Continue reading

An indispensable and gorgeous guide to museum and gallery exhibits when you’re in Paris: Exponaute

The best thing about big cities is that they’re giant cans of concentrated culture. Museums and galleries up the wazoo. (And yes, even people who say “wazoo” can like high art.) When you’re visiting Paris, you can grab one of … Continue reading

Add text to your baby pics or LOLCat or photonovel with the classy TitleFx

Not long ago I tested a horrific app for adding text to photos, but I’ve found a much better one, which may even be The One, even though I’m still a strong believer in going easy on the text on … Continue reading

You won’t be so crabby in the morning with Oscar and Erik waking you up: DayDream

It sucks that sometimes you wake up with residual anger (or sadness) because of dreams, and it sucks that you often have no recollection of what made you angry/sad, and it sucks that whoever’s waking up next to you usually … Continue reading
