The Top 10 American Idol Scandals [CONTEST!]

Idol was perhaps the first show on television to have as much of a life off the screen as on. These days we are used to The Hills girls, Bachelor contestants, Real Housewives and Jersey Shore housemates seeing their dramas spill over from the shows that made them famous to the covers of the tabloids and the greater celeb-obsessed blogosphere.

This Holiday Season, Say Sayonara To Technology

Receiving a text message gives me a blissful, momentary high. A day without access to the internet is a sad day. If a couple of days go by and I haven’t signed onto Facebook (like that ever happens), I get antsy and feel out of the loop.

Move Over iPhone! The Windows Phone 7 Is Here

Recently, I was given the opportunity to fly out to NYC, shack up at a nice little hotel in the Fashion District, and attend a Windows press event in an art gallery in Chelsea. Yes, my life is pretty baller.

Making the Most of Your Dumbphone

Not everyone has a smartphone. It’s true! Though they are excellent devices, and can even be productivity-boosters for the savvy student, they are expensive--and parents are unlikely to see the need for a smartphone to be as urgent as you see it.

Web Spy: Evernote

My desk is cluttered with post-it notes of things I don't want to forget about, magazine clippings, receipts, class notes, and more. The mess, plus being occasionally scatter-brained, drives me crazy and sometimes even causes me to forget about important events or due dates. I used to try to figure how I could keep it all organized in a way that would make it all easy to access and find what I need--but now Evernote does all that for me!

How to Survive With a Lost Cell Phone

So there was that one crazy night - you lost count of Jell-O shots, games of beer pong, and perhaps even where you were. You wake up in the morning, the grogginess sets in, and you feel your wallet, your keys, and -- that's it.

Dating Makeover Challenge: From Ice to Nice, Day 3

Now, let's be honest for a second. In this day and age, everyone is hyper-connected so it's become totally normal and expected to be texting and calling and Facebooking no matter where we are and who we're with.

Web Spy: WakeupDialer.com

I’m a ridiculously sound sleeper (seriously, I’ve slept through earthquakes), which makes it really difficult for me to get up in the morning. When I first went away to college and I didn’t have my parents or sister to yell at me to get up when I hit the snooze button for a third time, I realized how big of a problem this could be.

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.
