in gadgets,Miscellaneous

Back in September, I stumbled across a nifty way of tracking what you eat no matter what type of diet you follow – The LifeStyle Scanner. At the time, the service was “coming soon.” I checked again today and I see that it is up and running. I was thinking of trying it both for […]

Samsung SGH-T809 Isn’t All That

by nycgadgetgirl on February 2, 2006

in gadgets

So, T-Mobile USA released the T809 that I was so excited about. I don’t need it. It is almost EXACTLY like my D500 feature-for-feature. The only differences are: the T809 is flatter, but it’s also WIDER (weight is the same) (draw) the D500 is tri-band, but the T809 is quad (T809 wins) the T809 has […]

So… I saw my first episode of Desperate Housewives last night. A note for those of you who don’t know me personally: I don’t have a television. When my ex and I separated, I was more than happy to let him take the TV and to NOT buy one for ~T~ and me. ~T~ was […]

GPS For Your Pet

If this GPS dog collar were just a little smaller, I’d be all over it. Snick’s never run off, but I totally stress and worry about it all the time. If there were a way to have this on him without the collar, that would be even better, because the most likely scenario if he […]

I must have this phone when it comes out. According to MobileBurn, Samsung should be announcing the SGH-T809 in the next couple months. It looks a lot like my SGH-D500 only smaller. Whee!

…and I didn’t know it. I have this nifty Samsung phone that has only been released in Europe. It’s the SGH-D500. I’ve loved it desperately from the moment I got it. It’s slick. It slides. It has bluetooth. It plays techno (with the built in MP3 player) when I get calls. It does POP email. […]

Now HERE is a nifty use of existing technologies. They aren’t quite up and running yet, but when they are (depending on the cost, of course), I am all over the Lifestyle Scanner! It’s a keyring barcode scanner. You scan everything you eat and their website compares it to the nutritional goals you’ve set (based […]

I just hooked up THREE new goodies to my laptop. Count ’em… not one, not two, but three!!! Ahhh… I’m so happy I can’t even write about it yet. <time goes by. J goes to and returns from the dog run.> I’m a little freaked out. I just looked at Life Balance on my new […]

A Cell Phone for Snick?

OK, I must admit, sometimes on a Saturday morning when I’ve left Snick to wait in the apt building lobby while I run to Starbucks for a frap, I get in the LLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG line and I think "I wish I could call Snick and tell him not to worry, that I’ll be back soon." Um, […]

I am repeatedly flummoxed by the fact that I cannot wear my bluetooth earpiece and my sunglasses at the same time.
