Technology Done Right

by Houndstooth on

One of the cool things about being a blogger is that you hear about new products coming out.  Aside from being a dog lover, I am also a huge technology geek, and new technology is a thing that fascinates me and I try to keep track of.  When I find something that mixes my two […]
