7 Things I Wish I Could See at CES 2016

Hot Tech CES 2016

As a bit of a techno-freak, it’s always been a dream of mine to attend the Consumer Electronics Show. It just looks like one of the coolest expos on the planet! I’ve been drooling a bit over the CES 16 roster, playing pretend vacation in my head. Due to finances and medical issues , attending this year is just out of the question, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dream! Check out 7 things on the schedule that I’ve been lovingly gazing at, wishing I could see in person at CES 16! 7 Things to See at CES 16 Augmented Reality  (LVCC, South Hall […] Read more »

Get an Affordable Mobile Computer for the Whole Family with Acer Chromebook R11

Need an affordable mobile computing option that the whole family can use? Check out my Acer Chromebook R11 review to see how much both my son and I loved it!

  Finding affordable mobile computers that really work for your whole family can be a challenge. Between my son Jake and I, we have no shortage of devices, don’t get me wrong. I have my All-In-One, he has a laptop. I have an iPad, he has an iPod. We share an Android tablet (although let’s be honest, it’s his). Even with all that,  our needs aren’t covered when it comes to certain expectations that we have out of mobile computers.  We have a gap to fill when it comes to several of my work tasks and Jacob’s school and entertainment needs.

Can you believe I’m the mom of a 5th grader? I can’t! Jacob was in 1st grade when I started Pretty Opinionated! Back then, I wasn’t even thinking about things like after-school activities, cell phones and letting him walk home from the bus stop. Now, at 10, he’s starting band practice and begging for a bit more independence. He also needs a cell phone. While I have one that I got for him last year for review that I did love, Jake just burns through minutes on it. I needed something that let him get in touch with me anytime, […] Read more »

Capturing Authentic First Day Back to School Memories #SanDisk

Check out my favorite tips for capturing authentic back to school memories and for safely storing them so they last generations!

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card for this post. All opinions are my own. The back to school countdown is on! Jacob has less than two weeks until he returns. He’s going into 5th grade this year. It’s a pretty monumental year! He’s top of the food chain in his elementary school (our district goes up to 5th). He’s also starting band and learning the clarinet. It’s going to be an exciting year for him, and I want to document it! I have to be honest, over the last few years, I have more […] Read more »
