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

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

Color is happy and it’s everywhere and you can collect it and use it with Color ViewFinder

If you’re into mobile photography, you’ve probably noticed that it makes you hyper aware of the world around you; all its little faults, but especially the hidden beauty. I found a seedpod in the country one summer and I wanted … Continue reading

We can’t seem to let our business cards go, but maybe we can toss other people’s: CardHolder

I have a sterling silver calling card tray, an essential Victorian accessory that belonged to my great-grandmother, who was born in 1894. Now we have business cards, which in France are still called calling cards (cartes de visite). And despite … Continue reading

A spoonful of live music is a sure-fire cure for old fuddy-duddiness: Timbr

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I fall into a routine and start feeling like I’m my grandmother or something. My life feels like nothing but work eat sleep and it’s seriously lacking in shiny sparkly moments. When this … Continue reading
