Madi Loves Roku

Madison, my 3 year old daughter read her first word yesterday: Roku.  First word she was able to sound out the letters, put them together, and read a word.  Roku?

Camera With Built In Projector

I’m a gadget nerd and I’m drooling over Nikon’s new camera.  It’s got a built in projector that will show your pics/vids on a 40 inch wide projection.  Now that’s PIMP! Whenever I’m out snapping pix everyone immediately wants to see the pics and crowd around the small screen on the back of the camera.  With this new functionality I could just display the pix immediately on the wall.  Killer!
