Julie’s Gadget Diary – My quest for an ultimate alarm clock has finally ended

I’ve been searching for an ultimate alarm clock for what seems like forever. I even have proof that it’s been at least 6 years… I posted a diary post back in 2007 listing my must-have alarm clock features.  Some of which  included: 1. Wake up by playing a tune from a specific playlist in iTunes. …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – Can a Samsung Chromebook replace my Macbook Air?

In an effort to cure a raging case of tech boredom, I’ve been trying some experiments to see if various gadgets have the ability to replace my 13″ Macbook Air as my go to workhorse computer. I recently tried this with a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Android tablet to less than a stellar outcome. Now …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – It may be iPad Mini day for some, but it’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 day for me!

I’ve been wanting to try the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for awhile now, and I finally caved in and ordered one yesterday afternoon from Amazon. Thanks to my Amazon Prime membership, shipping was only $3.99 for next day. UPS just dropped it off to me about 20 minutes ago. How’s that for almost instant gratification? …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – I think I’m having a mid-life tech crisis

I think I’m starting to sound like the grumpy old gadget woman lately, but today’s Apple iPad mini event did not excite me any more than last month’s iPhone 5 announcement. If you recall, I decided NOT to buy an iPhone 5. I dumped my iPhone 4S and defected over to camp Android with a …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – Meet My New Best Friend

Ok gadget pals, I put my money where my mouth is and stopped by my local Verizon store after work today. It’s crazy how busy this store is. I think it gets more action than the Best Buy store a few yards away. I had narrowed my choices down to the HTC Droid Incredible 4G …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – I’ve Decided Not to Order the iPhone 5

I sorta hesitate to post this for the world to see because I’ve been known to change my mind. A lot. After feeling more fizzle than sparkle about Wednesday’s iPhone 5 unveiling, I’ve been going back and forth in my mind about my decision to pre-order one. I have been saving my Verizon upgrade since …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – Martha Stewart Ain’t Got Nothing on Me

If you read my review of the Midori Traveller’s notebook, you might remember that I thought it was insanely priced for just a square piece of leather with a couple holes punched in the spine and some elastic bands to hold it closed. After that review, I ended up ordering a BIG piece of leather …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – BookEndz Docks and USB Monitors

If you read my gadget diary post from last week, you’ll remember that I sent my 3yr old 27″ iMac to Powermax to get credit for a future purchase. They’ve already received the computer, so I’m just waiting for them to complete the review process before they deposit the credit into my account. I don’t …

Julie’s Gadget Diary – Goodbye iMac, You Will be Missed

The title of this post didn’t make you think I was leaving Apple and going back to Windows, did it? It will be a cold day in … when that happens. 😉 No folks, I’m still happy to be an Apple addict. But I’m bidding farewell to my 27″ iMac, because I’m trading it in for credit …

Julie’s Gadget Diary 05-02-12

When you live in Southern Indiana like I do, seeing a celebrity is a rare event. Lucky for me, I work for Cummins Inc. and our Cummins Turbo Diesel engine just happens to power the Tornado Intercept Vehicle 2 (TIV 2), featured on the Discovery Channel television shows “Storm Chasers” and “Mythbusters”. This vehicle has been designed to …
