I am glad that most TV shows nowadays are raising Autism awareness and showing the public (or those who watch the shows) different ways to deal with autistic children and more. One of those is “Parenthood” which shows you a kid dealing with the issues and how his parents deal with him being autistic. But that’s beyond the point.

A little information I received about “International Autism Day” can be found below.

[iPad 101] Watching Your TV Shows

April 2, 2012  |  Apple, Apps, iPad

Ever since I got my first iPad I was excited about being able to watch my TV Shows on the go.  And with the first generation model I had to wait a decent period until an app was available that allowed me to do that without shelling extra $$ for the shows I watched (i.e. without having to purchase Season Passes on iTunes for my Shows)

I recently got my Dad hooked onto this craze I’ve been on for the past 3 years and everyone was shocked as to how I was doing this.  Therefore I will share my secret.

[Room Deco 201] The Apple of the Room

March 28, 2012  |  Apple, Designs, Projects

So as most of you know I’ve been recently hit with the “Room redecorating” bug and I wanted to redesign things and change out of the dull brown/beige get up. Almost 5 years ago I was in love with the color Brown because well I don’t know I felt that it was nice but now I’m glad that I went with a gray + red option. I will not unveil the entire room but rather a small portion. The Apple Portion of my room. You see, everyone knows how obsessive I am, and how much I like to purchase new Apple toys even if its just iPods so I thought what better way than to incorporate that into my room and below is what happened.

In the corner near my bed I went with two of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes above a Magnetic White Board and a medium sized bookshelf. The top quote speaks very close to my heart and says “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.  If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.  Don’t settle.  As with all matters of the heart, You’ll know when you find it.” And the second quote simply tells me to “Stay hungry… Stay foolish…” Both quotes are very dear to my heart.

Apple Room 1

And in the other corner behind my door above my shoes I went with the “Think Different” decal.

Apple Room 2

I am very happy with the way things turned out and I’m glad that my room now has a tiny extra piece of me in it.

Next time will unveil the library of the room although some of you have seen it on Instagram.

Because Every Girl Needs a Steve Jobs

March 26, 2012  |  Apple, My New Toys

Being the insanely huge fangirl that I am, oh wait I didn’t clarify what type of fangirl I am! Being an insanely huge APPLE fangirl that I am I felt a need to share this beautiful creation with y’all!

 

Now every girl/boy can have a Steve Jobs of their own! A nice little “Throwboy Pillow” plush doll which measures 15 inches tall and is filled with polyester fibers and has removable glasses (for when you want to cuddle late at night  I mean for when he goes to sleep).

He has a 100% cotton shirt and denim jeans and would make every Jacqui in the world extremeley happy!

The best thing though is that a 10% of the proceeds of each “iCEO” sold goes to American Cancer Society to help honor the great genius that is Steve.

I absolutely loves this and can’t wait to get mine in August! There is a limit for 2 per customer.  (only 1,200 dolls have been made)

The New iPad 2012 Review

March 26, 2012  |  Apple, iPad, Reviews

Warning: Now before anything this review is going to be my personal opinion and not a huge technical or professional review.  I, a personal consumer, and a person who loves to purchase new gadgets am reviewing it for those who wish to know what my experience has been with this device.  So if you don’t like it or think it’s too “Apple-y” then just close this and move on ;)

 

So, on March 7th 2012, Apple held their event to announce the next generation of the ‘iPad’ many thought that the device was not worth the upgrade and didn’t offer any “wow” features but in my humble opinion it brought more than enough punch to the game.  I immediately pre-ordered my White 64GB 4G+Wifi model and unfortunately due to the strike wasn’t able to get it yet (it’s on its way shipped from Sister #3’s apartment) instead mother got one for Mother’s Day this year from Pops and I used and abused that model.  So want to know what’s the major difference? Well here goes:
