Disclaimer: I do not consider myself very technical or hip to the latest gadgets out there. I leave that to Husband, whom I sometimes call a geek, but that's usually to cover up the fact that I don't know what he's talking about. I often refer to our laptop as "the machine" and the remote, well, it basically looks new to me every time I use it. You get the idea.

As Baby S' arrival loomed ahead of us last fall, I was in need of a cell phone upgrade. Husband suggested the iPhone and I said why do I need one of those newfangled contraptions. On one of our long "lets urge this baby along" walks, we stopped by the Apple store in the Meatpacking District.

What can I say... I fell in love. From the ipod capability, the Internet at my fingertips, the not too shabby camera, to watching Youtube videos, to (oh yeah) the phone calling, I was head over heels. And my personal favorite? The apps... oooh, the apps. Immediately, I started downloading, and I haven't stopped since. I may soon be entering a 12 step program.

Here are some of my favorites:
iLike (takes your stored music & lists which bands in your collection are performing in your area)
Shazam (can't think of the name or performer singing in the background? turn Shazam on and it will tell you)
Camerabag (*thanks to my super talented friend Dennis Yuen for turning me on to this one!) - takes your photos and changes them for a bunch of different looks & compositions.
NPR (for when I'm feeling smart)
E! (for when I'm feeling dumb)

Baby S also has her favorites:
Peek A Boo (cute little animals & the noises they make)
Bab Bab Lite (kind of bizarre yet mesmerizing "rattle")
Baby Flash Cards (cause it's never too early to work that little brain!)

And my latest app? The iKidNY. Just downloaded for $2.99 this morning. This tool allows you to look up the closest changing tables, indoor/outdoor activities, subway elevators and kid-friendly restaurants, based on your location. Created by Laura Serebrier Paul, a NYC mom who realized a need & went after creating a solution (nice job, Laura!), the tool seems easy to navigate, and I can only imagine will be useful as we're out and about with Baby S on the weekends.

Now, if AT&T could just stop dropping my phone calls...
