Product Review: Philips In.Sight Cameras

Product Review: Philips In.Sight Cameras | Technology from hitechmom.com | Scoop.it
Shana Russell's insight:

You set up the camera somewhere in your house, connect it to your wifi network, and it continually monitors whatever it’s pointed at. With the free app that you download to your iPhone, you can see the live video when you’re away from home. You can set it up to detect noise and/or motion. When it detects either, it takes a snapshot and records 30 seconds of video. This video is sent to your phone and saved in the app. You can also set it up to save all of these images to your dropbox account.

An easy way to keep an online backup of ALL of your photos

An easy way to keep an online backup of ALL of your photos | Technology from hitechmom.com | Scoop.it
Shana Russell's insight:

I don’t know about you, but one of my most prized “possessions” would be my photo collection. I could bear to live without a lot of things, but photos of my family would not be one of them. Because they are so important to me, I am extra vigilant in backing them up. I make regular backups to an external hard drive and each time I import a new group of photos into my computer, I automatically upload them to flickr.com. I also use the site as a way to share my entire photo collection with my family without the rest of the internet peeking in.

Back up your Mac

Back up your Mac | Technology from hitechmom.com | Scoop.it
Shana Russell's insight:

We keep a lot of precious information on our computers. Photos of our children, videos of their important events, financial records, contacts, calendars, passwords, emails from people who are no longer with us, and many other valuable pieces of information. What would happen if all of that information was destroyed somehow? Or taken from you? How would you get that back?

Shana Russell's insight:

While most gadgets promise to make life easier and save you energy, a new breed of fitness tracking devices want you to get off the couch and get your bootie moving!
