Kitchen Technology: How Modern Parents Use Mobile Devices For Hassle-Free Meals

November 25th, 2014 by Tech Staff

Between managing careers, navigating the rigors of parenthood, handling the daily to-do list, and finding time to stay in touch with friends, it’s no wonder modern moms and dads are always on the lookout for simple solutions to make life a little less hectic. Luckily, the age of mobile technology brings ultra-convenient apps and Bluetooth-connected devices for everything from shopping to banking and, of course, cooking.  Discover the kitchen technology that you can put to good use this Thanksgiving below.

kitchen technology

Today, more people than ever before are diving into their smartphones and tablets fingertips-first to remove a bit of stress from their day-to-day routines, according to recent study from Flurry Analytics. Findings indicate that, in 2013, the use of apps for productive purposes such as managing finances and other family needs increased 149 percent compared to 2012. Only messaging programs and social networking apps saw a more significant jump.

Cooking is the focus of many apps that help people increase productivity. Any parent who has rushed home from work and raced against the clock to put dinner on the table will appreciate the unique ways in which mobile devices have made preparing nutritious meals for their loved ones a bit more simple.

Mobile technology makes magic in the kitchen

Planning and cooking family meals presents an ideal opportunity to pick up a smartphone or tablet and remove some stress from what can be a complicated part of each day. New for 2014, iDevices’ smart cooking thermometers – the iDevices Kitchen Thermometer and Kitchen Thermometer mini- are two of the most innovative examples of cooking accessories in the ever-expanding mobile market.

Sure to become a staple in any cook’s kitchen toolkit, iDevices Kitchen Thermometers pair with the iDevices Connected app to allow users to monitor the temperature of food from up to 150 feet away through the use of Bluetooth wireless technology, removing the need to hover near the oven or grill to ensure poultry, meat and seafood always turns out tender and tasting great.

Perhaps the biggest benefit of these high-tech cooking accessories is that they take the guesswork out the important food safety practice of cooking foods to the recommended temperature, a simple step that not only ensures a safe meal, but also makes it easy to put delicious, never-dry poultry on the table time and time again.

Smart cooking thermometers make poultry perfection easy for busy cooks

When it comes to preparing poultry, many cooks may rely on the color or texture of their meat to determine if it’s cooked thoroughly enough to serve. Some may even choose to overcook poultry to ensure it’s completely done, a decision that can result in a dry, disappointing meal. However, iDevices Kitchen Thermometers make it simple to determine when poultry is fully cooked to the proper temperature.

Recently, iDevices took the convenience of its smart thermometers to a new level by partnering with Jennie-O, a brand on a mission to show the world how easy it is to eat well with the great taste of turkey, to make it easier than ever for busy cooks to prepare delicious turkey meals.

By selecting the “Turkey” preset in the free iDevices Connected app, users can overcome any worries they have about under- or over-cooking poultry simply by monitoring their iDevices Kitchen Thermometer via any iOS or Android compatible mobile device from wherever they may be in the home or yard. Once turkey is fully cooked to a safe 165 F, the app sends an alert letting the user know their poultry is ready to serve. The iDevices Connected app even comes complete with a variety of simple, yet creative JENNIE-O turkey recipes, giving busy parents a collection of great ideas sure to please even the pickiest eater.

With a world of groundbreaking smart mobile apps and accessories now available, the sky is the limit for busy parents with a penchant for trying exciting new lifestyle tools. Visit the iTunes app store or Google Play store to download the iDevices Connected app and explore all the great new cooking resources out there. The iDevices Kitchen Thermometers are available for purchase online at

Discover How Simple Tech Tools Can Help Reduce Holiday Stress

November 19th, 2014 by Christen Rochon

Reduce Holiday Stress


The chaos of the holiday season can leave even the most organized person feeling a little hassled. You have to balance your schedule that’s filling up with holiday activities, your to-do lists of gift shopping and getting ready for guests, and your budget that’s struggling with added seasonal expenses. It all makes these last few weeks of the calendar year feel a bit overwhelming.

Fortunately, technology offers a few tools that can help simplify the chaos, allowing you to stress less, and focus on enjoying the festivities even more. So this holiday season, take advantage of these tips to reduce holiday stress, and get ready to celebrate with your friends and family!


Simplify your holiday greeting

Getting all members of the family together, dressed nicely and smiling for a holiday photo, just to create that perfect card, is enough stress for one season. Not to mention addressing dozens of envelops and waiting in line at the post office. Instead, simply put together a beautiful digital letter and send it via email. Microsoft’s People app makes it easy to keep your contacts up-to-date and in one location, so you won’t have to search your phone and multiple email lists.


Stay in touch without the drive time

The roads will be crammed with everyone trying to get to their in-laws house, so why not eliminate the drive time and get together on Skype with your loved ones instead? Share the holiday spirit over a Skype video call. Open presents from afar, wish each other happy holidays face-to-face, or plan a future visit when traveling isn’t as hectic.


Track discounts and remove clutter

One of the biggest projects of the holiday season is shopping for gifts, and it can be one of the most expensive projects as well. The good news, your email inbox will likely be flooded with discounts, online coupons and in-store specials from your favorite brands. In fact, email volume from retailers is up by 26 percent season this season, according to Experian Marketing Services’ shopping analysis. These promotional emails are great, but can quickly turn to clutter if not looked after. has a Sweep feature that allows you to keep just the latest emails from senders, automatically sweeping older – and probably outdated – messages into your trash, or a designated folder of your choice. You’ll no longer have to search through your email to find those deals when you need them.


Schedule your time appropriately

From baking cookies to company parties, your holiday schedule can fill up fast. Keep your digital calendar updated and with you at all times so you can confirm – or decline – commitments in real time. This will allow you to prevent your family from double-booking events and ensure that you won’t be up at midnight baking cookies for your kids to take to school the next day. Plus, you can review your schedule to see if you might need to add a little time for yourself, so you can recharge and enjoy the events you want to attend.

With these chaos-cutting tech tools, this holiday season can be an enjoyable time for you and your family. So put your technology to good use and ring in the new year stress-free!

Upgrade A Home Theatre For The Holidays With Best Buy

November 18th, 2014 by Christen Rochon



Have you begun dropping holiday hints for gifts this year?  Sure you could write a list or share little notes, but now that holiday gift “Hinting Season” is officially here, why not point friends and family in the right direction with home theatre gift hints from Best Buy?

Not all televisions are the same.  If you’re looking for the Bentley of TVs, the golden goose of home entertainment and the ultimate in home watching experience, then it’s time to step your game up with an LG OLED from Best Buy.  Discover LG OLED TV, the ultimate display television that will upgrade any home theatre room, family room and take your home viewing experience to the next level!



What is OLED TV?

The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21″ thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG’s exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors.

Your first kiss. A baby’s first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG’s latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you’ve ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination.  After watching on an LG OLED TV you’ll never want to watch entertainment on anything else!




OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. Contrast ratio measures the range from the brightest whites on the screen to the darkest blacks. These deep blacks seem to melt away, for a greater sense of realism and depth on all content. Higher is better, and infinite has been impossible… until now.

LG’s 4 Color Pixel technology adds a white sub-pixel to the conventional three colors (red, green and blue) that enhances both color range and accuracy. This considerably improves the OLED pixels’ ability to express realistic colors and represents a giant step ahead of conventional RGB displays. The 4 Color Pixel is LG’s exclusive innovation for the next-generation OLED TV.
