Ben Color Capture

Ben-Color-Capture-AppWhether you’re moving into a new apartment or doing a living room makeover, one of the most important decisions you make will be the selection of the right color of paint. As luck would have it, you’re visiting a friend’s house and you see the perfect color. Unfortunately, he doesn’t remember its name or where he got it. What do you do?

Laundry Pal

LaundryPalEven the best of us have had laundry accidents. Whether it’s a red towel in with the whites or a wool sweater shrunk to mini-me proportions in the dryer—we’ve all “been there, done that.” Laundry Pal is like a decoder ring for clothing tags. Located on all clothing are tags with fabric care symbols that tell you how to wash and dry the item. Laundry Pal tells you what the symbols mean and how to properly handle the article. If you’re ever on the fence about whether that new cardigan should be washed with the rest of your delicates, consult your Laundry Pal!

A Busy Baby Boomer's Life

A day in the life of a very busy baby boomer—and the apps that help her get things done.

Weather  Channel MaxiNewsAlbert Einstein was once asked how many feet are in a mile. He answered, “I don’t know. Why should I fill my head with things like that when I could look them up in any reference book in two minutes?” Like Einstein, I’d rather not keep everything in my head either. Unlike Einstein, I don’t have to look it up in a book—I’ve got an iPhone in my pocket!

An iPhone Survival Kit

These iPhone apps and accessories will help you survive major or minor natural disasters

Owners of the iPhone appreciate its easy-to-use interface, functional Web browser, and the variety of apps available through iTunes, but one family from Carbondale, Illinois has a more important reason to love it. Earlier this year, Christine, Alan, Jordan and Claire Rankin had to endure some very harsh, Midwestern weather, which included high-speed winds, torrential rain, and baseball-sized hail. It damaged their home, and left the Rankin’s without power for over a week. I spoke with Christine afterwards, and she shared with me how the iPhone helped them get through this natural disaster.
