We love the iPAD and the numerous learning apps we have for our little one.  My toddler loves drawing and coloring apps and at almost two years of age, he has even started tracing some letters.  I like the drawing and doodling apps on the iPAD because it allows kids to have fun and we don't have to worry about printing or wasting papers.  However I was wishing there was a little pen he can use on the iPAD, as drawing with a finger is not the same… Read More

Vonage Mobile

I have been looking for text free solutions for a while.  When I first got my iPhone, I thought I was not going to text much, mostly just use it for phone calls, so we bought the mobile plan with monthly phone call coverage, and then pay text by number of texts we send and receive.  But now more and more of my friends started texting instead of call, I feel we need to re-evaluate our mobile program, and I… Read More
