However, teaching people who have not grown up with technology how to use it can be extremely challenging. So, here we are going to you a few tips that should help make yours and their lives that little bit easier!

 

Don’t Take Over

 

While it might be tempting to take the keyboard off them and do everything yourself, this is never going to be the best way for them to learn.

Most people have a cell phone in this day and age.  In some households like ours, cell phones have even replaced a land line!!  If you rely on your cell phone like I do a good portable phone charger is a MUST so you can recharge anytime and anywhere!!  There have been many times when I’ve needed to charge my phone, but was out shopping or to dinner and didn’t have an outlet available so I always try to keep a portable charger with me.   I’ve tried a lot of different ones, and some  are just  too big and bulky…others take forever to charge my phone.  

The Thinium ReCHARGE + all-in-one charger charges your phone super fast!!  IT’S CORDLESS so you don’t have to carry around bulky cords with you.  It’s very thin and lightweight, and you can tuck it away in your pocket, handbag, etc.  It has a built in iPhone charger (iphone 5 and newer), a foldable plug, and comes with two little suction cups that will help your phone adhere to it when you use it!!  It also has a built-in USB connector, and you can even use it to charge two devices at the same time!!

For decades, we’ve been watching James Bond as he drives car after car filled with stunning gadgets. It gets us wondering, doesn’t it? What would I do with all that technical power? The problem seems to be the price. Getting a car loaded with amazing entertainment abilities seems to cost the Earth.

But here’s the thing. It really doesn’t need to. Think about it: what are your usual entertainment devices? That’d probably be your tablet, your smartphone or iPod, and your DVD player. You can bring all of these into your vehicle pretty cheap! [Read more…]

How We Use Top Technology in Our Home

There are so many options to consider when you’re buying new tech for your home. But these are the main ways in which we use technology in our home.

 

Fast Internet Connections Throughout the House

 

When you have a family with teenagers, it’s impossible not to have fast internet connections. Lots of people using the internet can slow it down if you don’t have a high-quality connection. This inevitably leads to a little annoyance and frustration. And when this drags on or happens all the time, a little frustration turns into a lot of frustration. You need a router that can give equal coverage to the whole house otherwise you’ll have problems.

Kids will love Sakar International’s new super cool line of kids-safe headphones and so will parents since they allow kids to safely listen to and enjoy music. 

Sakar International Kids Safe Headphones feature kid safe technology along with a built in volume limiter which allows for a safe listening experience.  

As parents we only want what’s best for our children but it’s difficult to monitor something like a safe volume for your children’s listening pleasure so this will also give YOU a peace of mind knowing that they’re not too loud for your little one’s delicate ears.  

The built-in volume limiter protects  children’s hearing by automatically limiting audio volume to approximately 80% of the original maximum volume.  [Read more…]
