Why Should You Teach Your Parents About Tech?

Technology is evolving and getting easier to operate – It’s time to teach your parents a thing or two.

Imagine trying to live without technology in your daily life. It’s difficult to picture a day without your mobile phone, laptop, tablet – or any smart devices you’re currently using.

And like most Millennials, you’ve probably tried to introduce new gadgets to your parents. Many times.

If you’re a parent, you might have been surprised when your own toddler learned to stream Netflix or YouTube even before your own mother or father did.

Luckily, there is a whole range of smart devices and smartphone apps you can teach your parents to use to make their lives easier.

You won’t need to field lengthy “how do I work this?” phone calls in the middle of the work day any more, and you’ll know someone – or something – is making life safer and easier for your parents when you’re not around.

And why shouldn’t your parents get the benefit of the tech we take for granted?

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching – have you figured out what you’re going to give that special someone in your life? These 7 apps will guarantee a smooth day!

4 Best Fitness Apps so You Can Exercise at Home

We’ve rounded up the 4 best fitness apps to keep your waistlines from getting larger as the weather gets cooler. You don’t even have to leave the house!

For much of the Northern Hemisphere, winter is coming. Cold weather, snowy days and having to wear multiple layers of clothes make most people happy to stay inside.

But, for many of us, this can mean losing the motivation to keep exercising. Sure, it’s easy to put your sneakers on and take a run outside when the weather’s warm. Or, get on the bike and take an hour bike ride during your lunch break.

Now that the weather is getting colder, though, it’s becoming harder and harder to stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

And it’s not like the gym is any better. Having to drive far away early in the morning to beat rush hour just to work out isn’t any more fun than going to the gym after work when everyone else is doing the same.

Instead of throwing in the towel and waiting until next year to make new resolutions, keep your exercise routine going strong. There’s no need to venture outside in the cold just to get your heart rate up.

With your SURE Universal, you can even watch your favorite movie while exercising and control your air conditioner if you really start to work up a sweat!

Let’s look at the four best fitness apps that you can use from the comfort of your home.

The Best Apps for Kids this Summer

These entertaining apps for kids will keep your little ones happy and less bored this summer.

It’s official – school’s out for summer and you’re already hearing the whines, groans and incessant, “mom there’s nothing to do…I’m bored,” floating around the living room.

You’ve signed them up for summer activities but those don’t start for another two weeks – and they usually don’t last all summer. You’re still working, and your vacation won’t start until the end of the week.

When your children are old enough to stay home without a babysitter, you don’t want them bored all day, or to end up trolling for trouble around the neighborhood.

Of course you tell them to go outside and play, but we all know how that works with kids these days. So instead of having them plastered to their PlayStation, Xbox or TV for eight hours a day, why not try some educational and fun apps that will keep them happy and entertained?
