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. Everything I do is coupled with some sort of technology, which is probably pretty obvious since I write about it every week.

Fashionably Techie: Kindle Your Love of Reading

I love books. I just unpacked my massive book collection and filled like ten shelves with those suckers. Everything from horror to fantasy to sci-fi to children’s to textbooks - I refused to sell anything back because it was pretty much a rip off. Seriously, $15 for a book I spent $100 on?

Fashionably Techie: Nintendo’s Newest Toy

Moving is hard but it was all made better by my new toy, the Nintendo DSi. Nothing takes the stress of packing boxes away quite like a little video game action. Now, I was a little ambivalent about purchasing this item. I mean, I'm an adult... and it’s a Gameboy, but upon finding that I got a $70 dollar credit when I traded in my DS Lite, I figured, hey, why not?

Fashionably Techie: Old School Games

So I was browsing the shelves of Gamestop the other day and noticing that Nintendo was putting out a slew (well maybe not a slew so much as a few) of games that were Gamecube games remixed for the Wii’s controls.

Fashionably Techie: Spring Savings!

So it’s March. Time of leprechauns and half-nice weather. It’s also a time of sales. Tech sales. So here’s some sites to find some cool stuff for cheap. Because everyone loves cheap.
