Fashionably Techie: Can’t Live Without It?

I think I'd die without technology. I’m constantly texting, I check my email six times a day and I use Google for everything. When I’m bored, my DSi is there to entertain me.

Fashionably Techie: Old School Games

Fashionably Techie: Get The Most From Your Computer

Like a magpie, you gravitate towards things that are shiny: cell phones, TVs, anything that allows you to play Rock Band. But just because you love ‘em doesn’t mean you know much about ‘em. That’s where we come in. Every week we will be highlighting the best, coolest and shiniest in technology.
