Sea Turtles for kids

You can expect the same kind of subjects to be included in National Geographic Kids magazine that you get in the adult version: animals, science, archaeology, and geography, but with technology and pop culture added to the mix too. As you might expect, there is also a strong emphasis on magnificent wildlife photography. Frequent appearances of animal posters can be found within the pages, as well as high-quality photographs sprinkled throughout the magazine. The addition of games and jokes, alongside other activities such as puzzles and competitions, keeps the subjects light, while still getting across the important facts.

Summer break will be here before you know it, and this magazine would be great at helping to prevent the ‘summer slide’ or learning loss that occurs over the summer if kids aren’t encouraged and motivated to keep reading and learning during their vacation. It looks like a super deal and a real treat for animal-loving young readers! Go HERE to check it out.

$19 per month cell phone

Have you heard the recent buzz about a super new way to save on your smartphone bill? It's a $19 per month rate plan from Republic Wireless with unlimited data, talk and text per line. That can cut the cost of smartphone ownership from over $100 per month (what most people pay now) down to about 60 cents a day!

As if that's not enough, you also get the Motorola Defy XT Smartphone with the offer:

  • Android operating system
  • 3.7-inch Corning® Gorilla® Glass display
  • Front-facing VGA webcam, plus 5MP rear-facing camera with auto-focus, LED flash, and 4x digital zoom
  • Wi-Fi and Sprint 3G coverage with dual-band reception
  • Over 450,000 Android Apps available thru Google Play
  • Dust-proof, water and scratch resistant

Great phone, right??? How are they able to offer all this for so little? Republic Wireless uses something called Hybrid Calling which harnesses the power of WiFi while still giving you access to regular Sprint 3G cellular capabilities when you need it. It's super cool and there are no contracts, no overages and no limits. This video explains even more:  

Not only is this a great way to save on your phone cost, but it's also perfect as an inexpensive starter phone for the kiddos, grandparents, or anyone just looking to enter the smartphone world without a big commitment or expense. You know Daisy & I are ALL about saving $$$ and we think this looks like something to consider!

Find and Remove App Spam Madware with Norton Spot for Android!

Norton Spot

The hubby and I were super excited to get brand new Samsung Galaxy S3 Android phones recently and went a bit crazy downloading all the free apps we’d been lacking on our old phones. Games, shopping tools, music players, flashlight apps, barcode scanners…you name it we downloaded them!

It didn’t take long before we started to realize that many free apps can be pretty spammy and overly-aggressive with those unwanted ad popups, and it’s hard to know which ones to watch out for. Turns out there’s something called Madware, which is mobile adware hidden in many apps. It only affects Android phones, and even some of the most popular apps out there, including Angry Birds, Brightest Flashlight Free and Sams Club apps to name just a few, contain Madware!

We were pretty happy to learn about a handy tool that helps find and remove Madware apps, called Norton Spot. It’s developed by the same people who make all the other Norton security, privacy protection and web software we’ve all come to trust, and you can download Norton Spot for free, right from Google Play (formerly known as the Android Marketplace).

Norton Spot is an ad blocker, detector, killer and stopper. It also protects your privacy which is something every parent needs to be aware of, too. Once installed, you can count on Norton Spot to identify apps that don’t respect your time or privacy and remove them. It shows you the apps you need to be concerned about along with the suspicious or undesirable behaviors you might not be aware of. If you’ve got an Android phone, and especially if your kiddos do, I recommend you download Norton Spot for free and start using it, too!
