Web Spy: Raditaz

Whether I'm studying, walking to class, having a dance party with my friends or working out, I have a Pandora station that suits my every situation and mood. As much as I love my go-to music site, though, I've recently discovered a new site that's giving Pandora a run for it's money. Meet Raditaz! It's an internet radio service, much like Pandora, except it has over 14 million songs in their library -- that's about 13 million more songs than Pandora.

Whether its posting a funny video or interesting article on Facebook, emailing a new recipe to a friend, sharing files for a group project, or sending photos to your family, we're always sharing information with one another over the internet. But what if there was a way to share and host all your files in one place? PutLocker makes file sharing as easy as can be!

Web Spy: MyFitnessPal

Just like everyone else, this year I pledged to finally start working out and eating better. Part of it is vanity -- who doesn't want to look good in a bikini at the beach this summer? -- but the other part is knowing that, as I get older, I have to start taking care of myself if I want to live a long, healthy life. The problem is, I've always had a hard time getting (and staying) motivated -- but not anymore!

3 Reasons You’re Going to Want This Windows Mouse

I should say that when it comes to mice, I’m not much of a stickler for capabilities aside from asking myself the most important questions: “Does it work?” and “How much?” So I spent a little QT with my mouse in order to give it the review it deserves. Let me tell you, I was impressed.

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.

Technology Then and Now: 2001 vs. 2011

On the verge of the iPhone 5 release, the Droid Bionic launch and the creation of 55, 65 and 72-inch flat screen Blue-Ray HD television sets, it’s time to travel back in time to a world that believed desk-tops, Palm pilots and disc-men were the cream of the crop.

How To be Steve Jobs on Campus

Last night after work, I signed onto my Macbook and saw the news. The innovator who created the computer I was typing on...had died. Steve Jobs changed the world, and we can all learn a few things from him. Whether you’re a freshman just starting college, or a senior on the verge of graduation, you could probably learn a little from Steve Jobs.

FrontDoorSoftware Helps You Recover a Lost Laptop (And You Can Get a Year of Service Free!)

Most of us head off to college with a laptop lock to keep our valuable computers out of the hands of cunning thieves or uninvited drunkards, but how many people honestly use it consistently after the first few weeks of school?

Internet Stalking 101

This past weekend, Kelly and her girlfriends visited a downtown bar to spice up their usually predictable nighttime routine. As the drinks poured, their vision blurred. Eventually, a group of cute MBA students in the area approached the college seniors.

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. To add to the excitement, I was able to get an inside scoop on the new Windows Phone 7, which is in stores now and looking like a pretty nice addition to your technology arsenal.

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.

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. Your phone is AWOL, and in the new era of technology you're up a creek without a paddle as a college student.

New LinkedIn Feature Helps Students Build Career Paths

As hopefully all of you know, LinkedIn is a professional networking website that allows those looking for jobs, especially college students, to create profiles and look for business and career opportunities. It's a really fantastic service, and if you haven't signed up yet, you definitely should.

The Know: Social Networking Comes to iTunes

It's no secret that my iPod is a home for all things Backstreet Boys. Teeny-bopper music has become a staple in my life since, well, the '90s. And if it wasn't for my friends filling me in on new artists (or Ben Savage sharing brand new songs), I would probably still only be listening to Ace of Base and O-Town. (And if it wasn't for Apple, I would probably still be listening to them on my Discman.)

The Booty Call Goes Mobile

We can now update everyone on our every move, tag our friend's locations on Facebook, tweet out photos of our dinner while we're eating them, and make kissy faces to ourselves in the mirror and post them on our Myspace INSTANTANEOUSLY. It's safe to say technology has gotten completely out of control.

Would You Leave Facebook for A CollegeOnly World?

Back in the ages of early social media, I turned to Facebook to find as many friends as I could before I went to college my freshman year. "Hey [insert name here], it says you are living in [insert dormitory here], like, OMG let's meet up and do our laundry together or something!"

Facebook Places: Gettin’ All Up In Your Business Since 2010

Introducing Foursquare for Facebook, called Facebook Places, that takes everyone's favorite stalker application to the next level. Not only will your friends, frenemy's, second cousins, and co-workers be able to check into locations, but they'll also be able to check you into locations. Apparently they're claiming that it's just like tagging someone in a photo because it has a detag option.

Should You Foursquare? Let’s Check-in

I’m one of those annoying people who go on rants about the negative impacts of social media. I’m the friend who picks up the phone instead of writing on your wall. I’d rather talk than Tweet. And don’t even get me started on the horrors of MySpace.

Steve Jobs – Just Another Bad Boy We Can’t Help But Love

Steve Jobs and Apple Inc. held their press conference earlier today regarding all the controversies swirling about the defects found in the iPhone 4. If ya'll remember correctly, I was the geeky nerd who stood in line on June 24th at the Apple store and waited for two hours (with the rest of the Apple fanatics) to get my hands on the new iPhone.

Diary of an Apple Hoarder: Getting the New iPhone 4

While ya'll were sippin' on your mojitos and checking out the cute bartender, yesterday, after a long day of interning, I spontaneously decided I was going to wait in line for my new iPhone 4. So at around 6pm, I hopped in my car and drove to the closet store (Old Town Pasadena) where I was flabbergasted by the line that formed around, yes around, the Apple Store.

Tech Goes Girly. And I Want It All

So the majority of girls aren’t whizzes when it comes to technology. If you are, all the power to ya. Can you fix my iPod? But no matter if we are clueless (“which end of the charger goes into the wall?”) or tech savvy, we all have one thing in common: we’re girls.

The Weekly Ten: Techsanity!

This week, I'm counting down the ten craziest technologies. Whether they're crazy in the "what the f&!# way" or crazy in the "I need that NOW" way, I'm listing them all, from social media to iPhone apps. Gen-Y has access to the wackiest and most innovative technology right now and here's my "Weekly Ten" take on all of it:

Project Runway Rundown: Freaks and… Lohan?

Of course, before we got to meet the new designers in the main event, we had a little taste of some of our favorite designers from previous seasons in the Project Runway All-Star Challenge. I was more than happy to spend two hours with Chris March, Santino Rice, Daniel Vosovic, among others, but after seeing the snooze-fest of a cast that is season 6, I wish I hadn't been teased...

Need a New Computer? Let’s Review Some..

Is your computer making that weird noise that sounds like it’s about to blow up mid-Facebook wall post? Does it totally burn your legs when you have it on your lap? Maybe it just totally sucks? If so, it might be time to start a-lookin’ for another. And with school starting right around the corner, what better time to begin the search?

The HP Back-To-School Bundle Special!

Ultra-portable Laptop Summer Love

You may not use your computer for memory-eating gaming or need it for its high-power computing capabilities, so when it comes to watching videos on our computers, chances are, we don't put much thought into just how powerful our laptop is.

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? And never opened?

Podcasts: My Latest Obsession

Ever since the great iPhone purchase of 2008 (and, more recently, the great music-obliterating hard drive crash of 2009) I have become completely obsessed with podcasts. It doesn't help that the iTunes store is one of the more addictive things in this world, and shows you all sorts of great podcasts you might like based on what you have already subscribed to.
