Four gadgets for your back-to-school shopping list and your chance to win!

Fall is just around the corner, and with technology changing constantly, it can be difficult for parents to pinpoint the right gadgets to send their kids back to school with.  To send you off in the right direction, here are four of our buzz-worthy high-tech gadgets to consider when shopping this back-to-school season:

Samsung Series 9 – Available at most electronics stores – MSRP $1,299.99

The Samsung Series 9 is dubbed the world’s thinnest and most compact laptop, feature-packed with Intel’s third-generation Core processor.

What this means is that this computer will give you incomparable speed and performance for whatever you are doing at school – be it video editing, or writing an essay while streaming multiple movies.

If looks are important, this computer is definitely for you.  Measuring at 12.9mm for the 13” model, and 14.9mm thick for the 15” model, these computers are sleek and stylish – definitely for the consumer who sees their devices as an extension of their personality.

Additionally, the Samsung Series 9 computers feature an Intel HD Graphics 4000 screen.  Anti-reflective and featuring a best-class “SuperBright Plus” capabilities, the Series 9 series boasts HD+ resolution (nearly 40% higher resolution), and a 170 degree wide viewing angle screen, so the whole family can huddle around and revisit those summer vacation memories.

HP ENVY 110 e-All-in-One – Available at most electronics stores – MSRP $299.99

This printer is by far one of HP’s most stylish and functional web-connected printers on the market today – perfect for any trend-setting student this year.

Featuring an easy-to-use consumer HP ePrint feature, students are able to print homework and school projects from the comfort of their smartphones or tablets from virtually anywhere in the world.

The ENVY’s high-resolution touchscreen allows for instant access to your favorite Print applications, including Facebook, as HP’s “Creative Studio,” a free and unique tool that gives users the ability to design, edit and publish custom print projects.

Now, students can “wow” teachers with professional looking presentations from a variety of preset templates. That, in combination with its polished design, low noise-acoustics and no visible paper tray, makes the HP ENVY 110 the ideal printer for this back-to-school season.

Motorola DEFY Pro – Rogers Wireless – MSRP $274.99

Ideal for tweens and teens alike, the Motorola DEFY Pro is a must-have exclusive from Rogers Wireless.  Built like a tank, this IP67-certified smartphone is perfect for resistance against scratches, spills and dust – so you can have a peace of mind knowing that the DEFY Pro will deliver in every way, no matter what life throws your way.

With its flawless chrome finish and 2.7-inch Corning Gorilla Glass display that resists scuffs and scratches, Motorola has ensured that the DEFY Pro is built to withstand the daily bumps and bruises of an active lifestyle, perfect for athletic and care-free students across the board.  The DEFY Pro features a full QWERTY keyboard that’s ideal for e-mailing and sending text messages on the go.  And best of all, you won’t have to worry about your battery life. With a high capacity battery and Motorola’s Battery Manager, you can manage your phone’s power consumption and play longer.

Other notable features:

–    The phone’s “Social Graph” feature memorizes your important contacts and dynamically populates the home screen, according to the frequency which they are called
–    Similarly, the Activity Graph focuses on your app habits and cleverly changes according to your frequency of use
–    Looking for the perfect companion for your next outdoor adventure? DEFY Pro has a specialized instrument dashboard to help you track specific outdoor activities, with camping, hiking and daily workout views

It’s all about the “Smart Wi-Fi” – Linksys

If you have a post-secondary student moving away for school, take a look at an Internet router with “Smart Wi-Fi” capabilities, like the Linksys EA series of smart routers.

Linksys’ line of smart Wi-Fi routers comes with Cisco’s Connect Cloud technology – providing the top-of-the-line home networking allowing the multitasking student the ability to have multiple things going at once.

What makes Linksys smart routers even better is that Linksys has opened the platform up to other app developers – so now routers can take advantage of the cliché, “There’s an app for that!”

–    Twonky Video: A mobile browser for Android smart phones and tablets to discover online video services and “beam” them to your Smart TV or AirPlay devices. With this sort of freedom you won’t have to get your friends to crowd around a tiny computer screen just to show them your latest “study break” web-video find.

–    Gemini IP Camera Viewer: Suspect your roommate is “borrowing” stuff from you mini-fridge? This app for iOS enables remote monitoring at home and on the go via Wi-Fi and cellular networks. The app also enables easy installation of home monitoring equipment.

Control the network from anywhere using a smartphone or tablet, or set guest access and control what devices are connected to the network from class, the library or the campus pub.  If you have multiple devices on your network – which you probably do – set priorities for Wi-Fi access so you won’t have your internet slowed down when studying just because your roommate can’t stop watching streaming videos ever again.

With high-end performance, Cisco Connect Cloud, Linksys smart Wi-Fi routers really will help today’s smart students connect their phones, tablets, computers, game consoles and much more!

High Tech Mother’s Day Gifts and Giveaway – The Digital Life

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and what better way to say “I love you mom,” than to pick up a few high-tech gifts this year.  If you’re looking for some inspiration, take a look at some of my top picks, right now.

Motorola RAZR
The new Motorola RAZR is the most captivating Android-powered smartphone on the scene.  The RAZR can stream music, pictures and more from your home or work computer—anytime, anywhere. In the light of day or dim of night, hyper-vibrant colours keep everything looking beautiful on the Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3 display. The RAZR is even armed with Kevlar for strength.
– Lightning fast 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and a cool 1GB of RAM
– Hyper-saturated 4.3” Super AMOLED Advanced display
– Super durable Kevlar fiber and Corning Gorilla Glass screen with splash-guard coating
– The Motorola MotoCast app gives you the power to stream or download content from your PC straight to your device – no uploading to the cloud needed
– Transformative accessories like the new Motorola Lapdock 500 Pro and Motorola Lapdock 100, Smart Controller, HD Dock and HD station make Motorola RAZR a force to be reckoned with.

HP Photosmart 5510 Printer
The HP Photosmart 5510 e-All-in-One will redefine the way Mom prints, copies and scans. The printer is a perfect fit for any room in the home, and with its high-resolution touchscreen and access to HP Print Apps, Mom will be in printer-heaven. Best of all, with an MSRP of only $99.99, the printer won’t exceed your budget.

To meet the needs of the social media savvy Mom, the HP Photosmart 5510 eAiO is also packed with the latest web-connected technology. She can use HP ePrint to print from an email-enabled smartphone or tablet from virtually anywhere, directly to the printer.  Need directions fast? Mom can use the MapQuest application to print directions right from the printer’s touchscreen. Does your mom love taking photos? With HP Print Apps, your Mom can make beautiful photobooks with Snapfish.

Philips Wake-up Light Plus
Waking up early and feeling energized has always felt like polar opposites for me.  There is no doubt that this is a similar situation for many moms around the world, too.  Studies have shown that people feel more energetic and refreshed during those sunny, bright summer mornings when the sun is shining through.

Nothing is worse than waking up in a dark bedroom, turning on your bedside lamp, and having your eyes feel disrupted from shock of the bright light.  I discovered the Philips Wake-up Light Plus – got hold of it – and tested it first-hand for The Digital Life on CityLine.ca.  I will admit I was really skeptical initially; doubting the product’s success and whether it would work at all.  I am one who wakes up in the dark, and the Wake-up Light allowed me to have that simulated sunlight, waking up more naturally and well-rested.

The National Sleep Foundation has chosen to make Philips Wake-up Light Plus its Official Light Therapy Product, in recognition of the benefits they provide in helping you wake-up better, brighter, and more energetic throughout your day.

Blurb
Blurb allows you to create a personalized, bookstore-quality book filled with your photos and loving words. With a price tag that can be less than a dozen roses, you can create a truly original gift that will always be cherished.

With Blurb, you’ll find all the tools you need to make your own photo book, whether you’re making a personalized wedding album, cookbook, baby book, travel photo book, or fundraising book.  Count on bookstore-quality printing and binding, and a range of choices from hardcover photobooks to soft-cover paperbacks in an array of trim sizes.

Holding a finished book with your name on the cover is a truly amazing feeling; it’s one of those experiences everyone should have.

YOUR CHANCE TO WIN!
