Tech Tips for Decreasing Holiday Stress from U.S. Cellular & DIY Network's Janna Robinson


Recently, I was able to email in some questions to Janna Robinson, host of DIY Network’s Hollywood Hi-Tech. She was looking to hand out some much-needed seasonal advice about utilizing technology to make your holidays run smoother. As a tech-savvy person myself, I am always looking for more advice on how to best use my smartphone and tablet to make my life easier and run more smoothly, so I was happy to participate and hear what Janna had to say. As a thank you, Janna sent me a gift basket with several stress-busting items such as a comfy robe, slippers, scented candles, hot tea, and more. In addition, one lucky reader will win the same basket.

Here are the answers to the questions I sent in to Janna Robinson . . .

    11. We need a bit of help with Family Organizing, keeping track of my addresses and phone book. I keep 2, one in my purse and a sheet typed out on the bulletine board and forget to combine the two when I add a new phone number or address when someone moves. The suggestions on the hard to buy person I really like is the Skull Candy ear buds.. all the teens love them
