When it comes to being a domestic goddess I’ve never had much success. At times I’ve found that even reheating a frozen burrito is a challenge. So admittedly, it’s not often that I attempt to release my inner Betty Crocker, which I’m told is somewhere deep within – very deep.
About a year ago I decided I wanted to start dabbling in photography. I wasn’t quite in the market for a full-blown SLR, but I also knew that my existing Canon PowerShot wouldn’t really cut it when it came to exploring the art of photography.

Assisting Attano is the Outsider, a magical being who grants him magical abilities with which to exact revenge. And because he’s forced by fate to become an assassin, Attano takes no mercy and spares no bloodshed while he carries out assassination missions against those who have conspired against him.

Part of getting the most out of your favourite smartphone is keeping the battery juiced up and ready to go wherever you are. After all, if you’re walking around with an almost dead battery, it’s going to be kind of hard to talk, text, or even surf when you need it.
For those times when you find yourself away from a charger for extended periods of time and you want to squeeze as much from your iPhone or Android battery as long as possible, here are a few ways you can increase your time between charges without turning off your phone:
As a big movie fan and being in the business, I have done my research...here are my picks for numbers 51 through 74, in my series of "the top 100 Blu-Rays you should own list." I’m sure everyone has their own list (which we welcome you to post here on Plug-In!). If you own all these titles then you are my hero and a movie rock star!
