Do you remember when Polaroids were the best way to quickly share photos, or when you tacked reminders to a bulletin board, not Pinterest?

Watch a Bunch of Adorable Kids React to an Old Apple Computer

Watch a Bunch of Adorable Kids React to an Old Apple Computer | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it
It's hard to know which specific emotion this video of kids reacting to old computers from the late 1970s and early 1980s evokes. The feeling is somewhere between sheer delight (how cute are they?!) and utter horror (how old am I?!) Either way, it's worth it.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

This would save my finger a lot of work. (So I wouldn't have to continually poke my son in his back.)

Getting Organized & Recharging In The New Year

Getting Organized & Recharging In The New Year | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

The New Year means resolutions (and spending that holiday gift cash). If you're like me, one of your resolutions is to get more organized and make your home more enjoyable to live in. After all, for the next few weeks (if not months!), we'll all be nestled inside the house, and while we have lots more to do inside now than we once did, all the electronics and entertainment stuff can make your home full of annoying distractions too. Like all those loops of cable wires and cords that every device needs.

Have Tech Gadgets; Will Travel (But How Long Will They Last?)

Have Tech Gadgets; Will Travel (But How Long Will They Last?) | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

The simple math is that there are at least five devices but only two plugs on the car charger. But let's face it; as adults, our calls, email checks on our smartphones, use of Pandora, etc. are necessary. And we parents insist that our phones must be kept charged in case of, you know (*knock on wood*), an actual emergency. Knowing that giving one child the gift of recharging means we need to give the other children the same help makes us a bit reluctant to open that whole can of worms.

So, facing another trip back home for the holidays, I was excited when the folks at Powerocks offered to send one of their latest creations, a pocket-sized mobile charger to review. ...But could it be too good to be true?

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Powerocks Magicsticks are as cool for your gadgets as poprocks are for your mouth ;)

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

Catchbox is a new throwable microphone designed to liven up audience participation, and in turn reduce the faffing around that seems to occur whenever a conference turns to questions from the audience.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged. That’s because, along with being able to sustain being dropped, the device has been engineered to automatically mute the sound when flying through the air or if it falls.

Do You Know Your Ditto From A Mimeograph Machine?

Do You Know Your Ditto From A Mimeograph Machine? | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

“Oh, a Ditto machine — remember that smell?!?” Wifey exclaimed.  She had visions of fuzzy purple-text pages becoming our regular method of correspondence with family and friends, if only for that famous post-printing chemical smell.  Unfortunately, she was close but not quite right: this is a Mimeograph, the teacher’s lounge compatriot of the Ditto machine.
