A curiosity cabinet ideas.


I want to share with you one of my absolute favorite WEB2.0 tools, yes I see WEB2.0 applications as tools, Audioboo! Audioboo is an application that I use on my iPhone to post audio podcasts.

Simplicity? What have we given up?

There is no questioning my love of technology and gadgetry, but I am not the person who goes out and buys for the sake of having the newest thing on the block. In fact I have only, this month, bought my iPhone, and am loving it. It was using my new iPhone that made me […]
