Katie chats with Andrew Song and Allison Swope about the far reaching capabilities of Facebook Messenger. Of course you can communicate with your friends, but did you know that you can chat with TSA and/or order a pizza instantly? With 1.2b users on Messenger, its no wonder that it takes 100k bots and counting to maintain the current platform.
As technology improves, there’s less incentive for sports fans to attend athletic events. Why pay for a ticket, parking, food, and beverages – and have to deal with unruly fans or, depending on the sport, the weather – just to sit in the upper deck and be so far removed from the action? Especially when a flat screen in a climate-controlled environment is often the alternative?
Technology is changing sports arenas and enhancing the fan experience. An inside look at the Cleveland Cavaliers Quicken Loans Arena. A chat with Priya Narasimhan, who is the founder of Yinzcam, and creator of over 160 professional team apps.

The key to understanding how the Sleep Shepherd works is first to realize that the brain has an electric charge just like the heart. We measure the hearts "electricity" with an EKG. We can also measure the brain's electricity with an EEG.
I remember my sheer excitement when I was invited to one of the first computer classes at my elementary school. I felt as though the world of technology opened up to me, and I think those early days of computing really inspired my future in technology. Since I was afforded that experience as a child, today I am a big supporter of encouraging the next generation of girls into STEM professions.
You've probably heard about the importance of exposing children to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) or STEAM (with an added arts component) as early as possible in their developmental years. But in an age of digital distraction, how do you keep them engaged?

The “most important tech reveal of 2017” combines luxury with technology, all within the showroom of everyday life. Allow me to introduce the Beautyrest Black® Hybrid mattress. I can tell you that for me, the experience of laying on this mattress was nothing short of an escape to luxury. When you lie down, you feel the comfort of the memory foam layers and support of the advanced coil construction. It’s a “wow” experience of what a bed should feel like at a luxury spa, but the best part is that it’s available for your own personal bedroom.
I cover a lot of crazy and over-the-top items when it comes to technology, so sometimes I forget that tech can also enhance our overall quality of life. We all love that companies are churning out the next big thing in innovation almost every day, but what about the technology that we can’t see? Ironically, there is a movement right now driven by companies and products aiming to educate us on just that.
We often think of technology as a piece of equipment we carry in our pockets or wear on our wrists, but next Tuesday, May 9, Mattress Firm will showcase a product with patented technology to help improve your sleep and overall quality of life. It’s going to be the Most Important Tech Reveal of 2017.

I could not believe it when my sister, Emily, told me that she wanted to buy her first home. I remember when we used to play with our Barbie Dreamhouse and build forts together in the backyard!

I’m not ashamed to admit that I take my loyalty programs very seriously. From Starbucks® to CVS®, I love finding digital tools to help me save money. Being conscious about money is smart and the way that I was raised. I remember sitting with my mom on Sunday mornings where we combed through the newspaper, cut out coupons and then arranged them in an accordion folder. Somehow my mom would manage to take me and my three older sisters to the grocery store and save us money at the same time!

I remember when I was little and my mom needed to deposit a check at the bank. My three sisters and I piled into the car and drove to the center of town. Once we got into the bank we all stood around the counter as my mom filled out the deposit slip. Then we lingered in the long line that wound around the lobby to wait for our turn at the window. If we were lucky we got a free sucker from the lady at the counter. It is amazing to think, in a different era how much time and effort it took my mom to complete just one banking transaction!
