Looking forward to Fall

Here's the poop on the fall TV line-up. Which series are you saddest to see go? Which ones should have gone? And which ones gave you a deep sigh of relief to see had made the cut? See the full list from our friends at @huffingtonpost .

Looking forward to "Once Upon a Time" returning for sure, but also "New Girl", "Happy Endings", "Fringe" and "Grimm". 
Why can't they please just let "The Office" go - it has way jumped the sad.

If we all approached things with this determination, our outcomes in life would reflect it...

Nook for Web

I know this isn't new but another stride B&N are making to stay in the game. Could be well received, but more so if the 6 free titles were titles of your choice. This does not seem to be the case. Well, let's try it and see how it works...

Free iOS Apps - the Best!

Ok...if you have an iPad, iPhone or any other iOS device, this app is a must. "AppsGoneFree" is a daily update of pay apps that, for that day and that day only, are free. I have gotten some great new apps, even up to $4.99 in retail cost, for free that I probably wouldn't have tried otherwise.

Check it out and thank me later! :)

Here's what the icon looks like (AppsGoneFree) in the App Store:

Tech Cats

Have iPad will pounce... my cats love my iPad. I walk in the door from work and they literally follow me around meowing until I set up one of their favorite games. 
The vid clip above is "Blackie" playing "Cat Fishing".

They have no front claws or I wouldn't even try this, but it occupies (sometimes) hours of their day. They have favorite apps (the vid clip above being a true fave for 2) which include:

"Cat Fishing" (Friskies - vid sample seen above)

"JitterBug" (Friskies)

"Cat Toys"

"Games For Cats"

Check 'em out. If you have a cat, I guarantee they' ll love it!

Today: FREE app on iOS: "Real Fireworks Artwork" (normally $4.99) 
How could a cat not love this one??!! Tap and fireworks appear...
