Electric Dreams: Confessions Of A Techie Mum Of Two!

Electric Dreams: Confessions Of A Techie Mum Of Two!

I humbly confess, I have a weakness for all things sleek and shiny. The infinite justification being that these new gizmos come in handy to spice up life as a stay-at-home mum of two. They bring respite to otherwise mind-numbing play dates, those in-between moments and a welcome companion for our families long road trip to KL ever so often. Nothing comes in between my gadgets and me.

Applie iPhone

1) Apple's iPhone

The Apple iPhone is not just a phone - it is a phone, music player, video player, web device, and camera, all in one. Like its Apple iPod Nano and iPod video cousins, the iPhone is slim and sleek at just 11.6mm thick, 2.4-inches wide, and 4.5-inches tall.

In addition to that, the iPhone features an amazing 3.5-inch widescreen display and has one of the most revolutionary user interfaces since the mouse. The interface is unlike anything you've ever experienced on a phone, with a large multi-touch display and it innovates new software that allows you to control everything with the touch of a finger.

The only set back? The fact that you can't pop the cover out to change the battery by yourself.
