Women with Tech

We’re intrigued by women who make tech, how women use tech, whether it enriches women’s lives, or makes them want to smash things. We’re particularly curious about mobile apps. Check in here for reviews and our thoughts on a variety of apps.

Notes

Notes

I used to have lists everywhere. They mostly lived on the backs of envelopes but ever since I signed up for ebills, the envelopes have dried up. Post it notes are too small for the psychotically detailed lists I make so I finally joined the modern world and started making lists on my cell phone. And so I discovered the magic of the notes app on the iphone. Read more

YNAB

YNAB

I bet YNAB (You Need a Budget) is a great app and system. And if I ever get around to using it I bet it will change my life. They just came out with a paper version of the app. That sounds good, too. Read more

Facebook

Facebook

I am old enough to remember when Facebook was new. I am also old enough to remember when you didn’t have to carefully curate your feed because everyone hadn’t yet been poisoned by the dumpster fire that was the 2016 election. Read more

Instagram

I have to be honest, I really hate dealing with Instagram. It’s a deeply frustrating experience and I can’t understand why. I am good at complicated. But there is something about Instagram’s entire system that just burns my cheese. It’s as if I am dealing with something that has become something it was never meant to be. Read more

The Great Courses Plus

The Great Courses Plus

Alright, nerds. Take this down. You can have access to The Great Courses Plus, which is a streaming service full of lectures about everything you have ever wanted to know about, for 10 bucks a month (30 dollars every three months). “But I am not a nerd,” you might be thinking. Come on. Everyone is a bit nerdy. Well, except for Joan Jett. She is the epitome of cool, at least according to me. If I could be anyone besides myself or Alice Bowman, I would be Joan Jett. But I would just ruin her cool by being a compete and utter nerd so better not. Where was I? Read more

Spotify

Spotify

When I was a kid, there was always music playing in our house. My dad had one of those hilariously complicated stereo systems from the 70’s and since we moved all the time, he and I were constantly taking it apart and hooking it back up. He even had a reel to reel. It was fun to sprawl out on the floor in front of it and watch the wheels turn as the music played. Which, in a roundabout way, brings me to Spotify. Read more

Netflix

I realized that I have been talking about all these tech products that I hardly ever use and ignoring the ones I use every day. No longer! So let’s talk about Netflix. I love Netflix. There is always, always, always something on. I am old enough to remember when TV ended. They called it the end of the broadcast day, played the national anthem and then there was a test pattern and nothing to watch until dawn. Read more

Food Delivery Apps

Food Delivery Apps

I am cheap. In my family we like to call it ‘careful with money’ except when we are talking about one of my cousins. Him we just call Scott.

Just kidding. Scott throws really nice parties and never skimps on the booze. And his wife is super nice. I never get to see her because she has kids and a job and I think there’s a dog in there somewhere. Read more

Quarantine Taught Me About My Husband

Girl, Clear Your Browsing Data

It just occurred to me a few minutes ago that I should really clear my browsing data.

Why, you might ask? Well, thanks for asking! Read more
