For something that could best be summed up as a Bluetooth-controlled ball, boy is this fun. Recently, I got the Sphero to try out. I have to say, I felt a little bit like I was in a Star Wars movie with my own little robot to control. For a moment, it made me 8 years old again, and anything that can do that is something I like. Read on for what you can do with one of these little guys!
There comes a time in every person’s life when they have a special talk with their parents or children about something very important. It used to be sex, now I think tech should be part of the conversation. I love technology, and I try to stay hip. My phone’s a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (we reviewed the original here), I have the new iPad (check out our 2012 gift guide for cool accessories), and I have a Windows 8 tablet and a Mac running Mountain Lion. I use Bluetooth speakers, have one of those fancy touchscreen remotes for my devices, and Siri and I have a love-hate relationship. But I’m in my 20s; the fact that my young cousins can use a tablet or smartphone just as well (if not better) than I can is scary.
