HTC RE Camera

The folks at HTC dropped off a RE Camera for me to play with. Trying out the RE camera from HTC. Looking forward to using it in the Cook Islands. A photo posted by Jessica Gottlieb (@jessicagottlieb) on Dec 12, 2014 at 12:04pm PST It’s a weird looking camera. Almost like a periscope and since there’s no viewfinder my kids and I just spent a lot of time staring it and waiting for it to do something. Pro tip: It doesn’t do anything if you just stare at it. The …

2014 Holiday Gift Guide

I know I’ve forgotten things. I know that I’m not supposed to recommend a gardenia scented candle in the middle of winter but I refuse to believe that my home shouldn’t smell like gardenias all year long.

So I waited. Then I waited some more. Then Christmas week arrived and they were 40% off at Bloomingdales and I thought about it. Then there was another 20% off and I thought, “Why the hell not?” And a trigger was pulled. Of course by the time they got to be 40% off and then another 20% off on …

The Unlikely Feminists

Thanks to William for this wonderful guest post. You can follow him on twitter at @willibaldoea Say what you will about the Kardashian sisters, but they’re smart ladies. They’ve managed to spin an entire empire out of nothing (well, maybe a sex tape, but…). Their ability to get people talking should be noted, because people certainly do talk – whether they like them or not. There’s no denying that they have had an effect on the collective consciousness at some level. Take Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries, for example. She filed for …
