USB Type-C - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

USB Type-C

USB Type-C is a specification for a reversible-plug connector for USB devices and USB cabling. It was published by the USB Implementers Forum. Developed at roughly the same time as the USB 3.1 specification, but distinct from it, the USB Type-C Specification 1.0 defines a small reversible-plug connector for USB devices.

USB Type-C Explained: What It Is and Why You’ll Want it | Mobile Tech Today | Scoop.it
Apple’s new MacBook has a single USB Type-C port, but this isn’t an Apple-only standard. This is a new USB standard, and — given time — it’ll spread to everything that currently uses an older, larger USB connector.

Eddie Bauer Trail Hiker, 3 Wheel Travel System (car seat/stroller) Review-Giveway! - | The Mommyhood Chronicles

Eddie Bauer Trail Hiker, 3 Wheel Travel System (car seat/stroller) Review-Giveway! - | The Mommyhood Chronicles | Mobile Tech Today | Scoop.it
The Mommyhood Chronicles focuses on kids reviews, giveaways, mom topics and sponsored posts
Lucero De La Tierra's insight:

You only have 10 hours left to enter this giveaway of a super maneuverable Eddie Bauer stroller and car seat to match.  As a mom of two young ones I know that having a high quality stroller is a must.  We have strong arms but we can only carry so much for so long when you are talking a baby, diaper bag, purse . . . oh and don't get me started on going shopping.  What's great about this stroller is that it rides well even on a bumpy street with a toddler aboard.  Enter today. . . it is your last chance.

Thou Shalt Not…ten commandments of blog comments

Thou Shalt Not…ten commandments of blog comments | Mobile Tech Today | Scoop.it
The big online goal for me this year was to get back into reading blogs. I set up the Connected list and created an easy, one click, way for someone to subs
Lucero De La Tierra's insight:

This is a well put together list of what not to do as a blogger and as a commenter.  My favorite NO-NOs were using Facebook commenting or Disqus as your commenting platform.  I have in the past considered using them, but when I actually used them on other blogs I found it frustrating that I could not post my blog url.  Facebook comments are irritating because they post to my public profile and don't follow any rational logic on the newsfeed.  

 

On my blogs I do not use Disqus or Lifefyre or Facebook comments.  I do moderate the first two comments made by any user for each unique email address.  My readers are not required to login, but they are allowed to connect with any of several social networks if they desire.  My comments are threaded and I don't use CAPTCHA.  

 

I appreciate number 10 "Why are you writing?" How my writing affects my readers if it is too personal or raw is something I hadn't thought seriously about before.  I never had considered leaving a comment prompt at the end of a post, but I think I will use that more often to encourage commenting. 

 

Thank you Dresden for this post.

World's First Live-Tweeted C-Section Is a Success [GRAPHIC CONTENT]

World's First Live-Tweeted C-Section Is a Success [GRAPHIC CONTENT] | Mobile Tech Today | Scoop.it
A hospital live-tweeted a C-section delivery on Wednesday, giving followers an educational -- but graphic -- look at one way human life begins.
Lucero De La Tierra's insight:

How much information is too much?  Yesterday an unnamed 39-year-old woman had her c-section live-Tweeted for the world to see.  The first of it's kind of live-tweet event it promises to be graphic.  This is not for the faint of heart.  

 

This brings me to the question, How far is too far?  Just because we can do something doesn't mean we should do it.  This goes back to my earlier post about what seems to be our growing morbid curiosity.  

 

Granted this event is probably very educational and a must see for anyone considering going into the medical field.  If you want to be a nurse, surgeon, ob-gyn or even a general practitioner I can see how getting a glimpse of events like this would be beneficial for your coffers of information.  Personally, I don't have the stomach for watching things like this.  That is precisely the reason I chose not to pursue a medical career.

Best Tablets under 8 inches | Tech Trends

Best Tablets under 8 inches | Tech Trends | Mobile Tech Today | Scoop.it
Lucero De La Tierra's insight:

I love how they call these tablets the solution to the Goldilocks dilemma.  Really it is.  Phones too small, Laptops too big - these tablets are just right.  Lately this has been a matter of much debate in my house (in my head) because I bought a desktop replacement laptop almost 2 years ago and I regret it.  It's too bulky, the battery runs out too fast and though it can hold EVERYTHING the problem is - it holds everything.  What if it gets stolen, dropped, soaked in water - I lose everything.  

 

My sister-in-law and mother both bought the tablet put at the top of the list - the Google Nexus 7.  My mother's only beef with the tablet other than her lack of skill and knowledge with the device is that she does not have internet access wherever she goes.  Thus comes the caveat for her - it's technically useless unless there is a WiFi signal.  What about when she is in the car travelling from place to place.  My parents are retired so that is a reality.  Whereas we younguns find ourselves at work, in coffee houses with WiFi or in our home offices with a WiFi connection Mama doesn't have that anymore (never really did).  She has WiFi at home now since I bugged my dad enough to get DSL in the house and of course she has access to connections when she goes to visit us (brother's house and mine) but any place else it's hit or miss around these parts.  It's not like we are in New York City where they have homeless people to use as mobile hotspots.  

 

That being said, the tablet is fast and versatile.  Being familiar with the Android operating system made getting to know this tablet a breeze.  I love that it is connected with all my Google services and profiles and can even use Skype with a forward facing camera that has pretty decent resolution.  The Skype quality is pretty good and my mom uses it to call me regularly.
