I was dragged kicking and screaming into the world of the electronic gadget. Until Christmas 2011, I was happy to own a $10 pay-as-you-go cellphone. It allowed my family to reach me in case of an emergency and was hardly ever used.
On Christmas morning in 2012, I opened the last package under the tree. What I saw made my jaw hit my chest and rendered me speechless for a solid 10 minutes. When I started to speak, I would really call it more of a sputter.
I am sure you have guessed what was in that package. Yes, that's right, it was a shiny new Apple iPhone, a gadget that I once mentioned aloud to my husband had business applications for my eBay store, Treasures By Brenda and a pretty pink Otter case, as shown here.
As they say, the rest is history. My phone is used constantly for everything but talking. I even read Kindle ebooks on it. As recently as yesterday my husband, who of course was the Santa who gifted me with my phone, was heard saying, "What did you do before that phone?"
Toys are the next frontier that I would like to check out. I'm really excited about the opportunities to put my smartphone or Chris' iPad mini to work with and had a lot of fun researching the items featured on a page called The Best New APP Toys. I've included video for you wherever possible because that makes it so much easier to picture what an app toy can do and how it works.
If you haven't seen what the new Furby can do, you're missing out, LOL.
