Pirate Parent – Music for my kids

So I always download music for free. Sorry, but I’ll gladly pay for a concert ticket next time you come to Manila! But usually I only download full albums. Not much experience downloading one-off tracks. My daughters needed me to make a couple of mix CDs made for an upcoming school / girl scouts event. I’m the tech nerd of the school so of course it fell on me. After some digging I found two sites that were pretty kick-ass ...

Camera With Built In Projector

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!
