Nothing beats a dual-use gadget! Like a flat iron and curler in one. Pens with wacky attachments. The Swiss Army knife. But now, comes a vibrator and flash drive in ONE! Crave, a San Francisco based start up, designed this nifty tool originally to be charged on a computer to get rid of messy cords and dying batteries. But then people asked “Can we store stuff on it?” and so, the DUET was born. Fully charged, the Duet has a life span of four hours, ... Read More
Is the Disney Princess, that grumbled-over cultural staple, slowly but surely evolving into something more than a girl to be rescued? I think so. Snow White, Disney’s first princess, is now 75 years old and still as beautiful and vulnerable as she ever was. But what about the princesses that came afterward. Cinderella? Ariel?

Boys read them, boys collected them, boys were, almost exclusively, the main characters to appear in them.
