10 Reasons My BlackBerry is Better Than My Boyfriend

Boys. Not always quite as reliable as we would like, are they? I blame rom coms for raising my expectations when it comes to relationships.

How To Communicate Without Your Phone

In light of the recent Blackberry outages, which just so happened to coincide with the day before the iPhone 4S was released (conspiracy alert!), it's come to our attention that we are obsessed with our phones. We can't go five minutes without checking our phones to see if we have texts, emails, tweets, or Facebook messages.

Sidekicks Aren’t Just For Superheroes: A Phone Review

We all remember seeing pictures of Paris Hilton at a club texting on her pink, bedazzled T-Mobile Sidekick phone. Well just as Paris Hilton has changed (her hair is longer), so has the T-Mobile Sidekick.

Smartphone Face Off: Blackberry vs. iPhone

There's no accessory more essential for a college girl than a cell. It is THE major form of communication in college and there's really no better way to make plans, organize parties and stay in touch with friends on the go. Oh and how else would you be able to send casual 2 am texts to the person you like? "Oh hey, what are you up to? Yeah, let's definitely watch a movie right now. At 2 am. Your roommates aren't home, right?"

Web Spy: LiveProfile

Ok, I'm going to come right out and admit that this week's post isn't a website, despite the fact that this column is called "Web Spy." But recently, I found out about an cool mobile app and I have to share it! LiveProfile is an awesome messaging app for your smartphone. It's faster and better than texting, because it shows you exactly when a message is delivered, read, and when a response is being typed. It also lets you share photos, videos, add status updates, and update to Facebook or Twitter.

7 Free and Fabulous Shopping Apps

As college girls our cell phones are our life lines. Our way to contact our friends. To google nagging questions. To check our e-mail and update our Facebook. We utilize them as much as we possibly can in every way we can. From scheduling to shopping. Shopping? Yes, shopping.

Surviving Senior Year: What I Won’t be Missing

I think it’s obvious by now that there are a lot of things I’m going to miss about being a college student. Friends. Three day weekends. The ability to plan my schedule around the latest episode of Glee. Things like that make the idea of leaving in three months and never looking back completely horrifying.

Texting Is Going To Kill You!

If research can be trusted, texting is officially the scariest epidemic plaguing society since H1N1. Or the bed bug outbreak. Or Speidi. And I’m not just talking about texting while driving, because we all know that's just stupid. According to a recent study, people who text a lot (I've got one thumb pointed at myself....and the other texting my BFF) are more likely to start fights and binge drink.

Web Spy: ReQall

How familiar does this scenario sound to you? You're driving in your car or walking to class when you suddenly get a great idea or remember you have to do something...but by the time you get a chance to write it down, you've already forgotten it. Or maybe you simply forgot to write down an assignment right when it was assigned...and then forget to turn it in.

One Month Challenge: Facebook Diet, Week 4

So I have now gone four mostly Facebook-free weeks. Which is saying something considering my little incident last weekend. I swear the universe was playing games with me for my final week of this challenge.

Oh, How I Have EVOlved!

Growing up, all the kids in my class had plenty of fodder to make fun of me. I was overweight, my hair was terrible, and --- the nail in my social coffin to be sure --- I always had ugly cell phones.

Canada Is Awesome and Here’s Why

This week's Weekly Ten, Why Canada Deserves Silver, stirred up quite the controversy yesterday. Seriously, I didn't see this much hate on CollegeCandy since one writer expressed her disdain for Taylor Swift. And rightfully so. Yes it was meant to be a joke, but we in Canada aren't entirely laughing with you.

The Best Products of 2009

I am a huge sucker for, well, lack of a better word, stuff. I'm not A&E "Hoarders" bad, but I love to shop and I love fun, innovative products, even if they don't really benefit me in any way. Neti Pot anyone?

Small Changes That Will Have Big Results in 2010

With every new year comes a handful of far-fetched resolutions and often unrealistic goals we set for ourselves. We vow to be better in the new year: to be thinner, study more, drink less, exercise more, etc, etc. And then we throw them all away during our post-NYE hangover the next morning.

What Do You Want Most This Year? [POLL]

As much as we all know we should be giving back this season, with all the goodness that's out there it's impossible not to want. The problem is, what do I want most? I know I can't get it all (no matter how much they love me, I know my parents won't be getting me a BMW this year) so I gotta choose the top dogs for my holiday list.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Eff You, Technology!

I am, without a doubt, addicted to technology. I spend 10 hours a day in front of my computer and the minute I step away, I'm checking my email/Facebook/Twitter/IMs/stock market reports from my iPhone. (Note: stock market reports are a real downer these days.)

Weekly Ten: Addictive iPhone Apps

I used to be extremely opposed to the iPhone. I mocked it, I thought it was childish and a waste. I was a proud user of the Blackberry for many years... until one day my Blackberry began to fail me. Calls were dropped (thanks a lot AT&T) and the phone was beginning to deteriorate. I was ready for an upgrade.

Miss Manners: When Modern Technology Meets Modern Etiquette

These days, it seems like the etiquette rules of the past just can’t keep up with the changing face of communication. Now, I like my cell phone as much as the next person, but there are some things you just shouldn’t do with a phone…

Fashionably Techie: Tech for The Real World

Remember when you started college and you got a bunch of cool new stuff? Everything was shiny and new and you were off on a great adventure. A lot has changed since then. Now you’re all disillusioned by jerky professors and “real world” problems. Oh, and your laptop is an antique.

Money Matters: Smart Splurges in Celebration of Your Tax Refund

Overall, this is sad, but in a couple of weeks I'll be getting nearly a G in tax returns. Yeah, that's a crapload of money. But when I look back at all the hours I worked in 2008, it also makes me realize... I made jack sh*t.

I’m Torn: Smart Phones

The world is a changin' my friends, and I so don't want to be left behind. That's kind of how I feel with the whole blackberry/iPhone phenomenon. Here I am with my little, dinky LG chocolate. I used to think my phone was so cool- - I mean, it's frickin red and can play music -- but now I'm not so sure.

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?

Avoid The Drunken Text!

Oh Sunday mornings. There’s nothing quite like stumbling out of a lofted dorm bed in last night’s stretched-out leggings, wayward bobby pins dangling from stringy bangs. You brush your teeth, rub the eyeliner crusties from your eyes and attempt to scrub off that not-so-fetching jungle juice stain on your chin. You're still trying to get the mascara off your cheek when it hits you. Did you text him?
