TechMom Tuesday – He Who Controls the Remote Control Rules the World


I write a monthly column over at AlliOSNews. It’s a techie site – extolling all the goodies and gunpowder on the Apple OS. (SHINY TOY!) I’m TechMom. And these are my stories on how technology is really used. This is what you must deal with, as I am a Silicon Valley nerd by day.

Found Nemo


Have you heard the news? Thirteen years after the original won an Academy Award for Best Animated Picture, the sequel to Finding Nemo is hitting the big screens (due out 2016).

Given the theatrics of the 2003 elementary age clownfish, one can only assume poor Marlon has one hell of a rebellious teenage fish. Or maybe Nemo is now a father of his own accord and karma is rearing its ugly head. “Come find me now, funny fish!” Continue reading

I’m in Boston. (One if by land, two if by sea!) It’s a work thing.

Today, we got lost. (I know – you’re shocked.) Tonight, I am exhausted. Tomorrow, stories will follow.  Continue reading
