4 really awesome, creative Instagram accounts from parents, that have nothing to do with sharing photos of kids.

While we can't resist a gorgeous baby photo, we love these parents' Instagram accounts that are so filled with fun and creativity, they're worth a follow.

The new Apple Watch announcement: Is it the coolest thing ever, or killing the need to ever talk to an actual human?

#applewatch   #apple   #technology   #technews  +Cool Mom Tech 
We're so impressed with the Apple Watch news + features, but also wondering whether all that personalization is actually...impersonal. Here's our thoughts.

What is terrifying is the number of iSheep who will mindlessly throw their money at it, despite it being very late to the smartwatch scene, overpriced as usual, and anything else except innovative. If anyone is actually convinced that this watch is even close to being "the next big thing," they're either completely cut off from the rest of the world or they've been so brainwashed by Apple that they're convinced if its superiority simply by its pricetag. Is it garbage? No. Is it a miracle? Well, hell no. What is it then?

It's just another typical Apple product. No more, no less.
