Great Gadgets for Moms
With Retrevo being the only site solely dedicated to all things consumer electronics and Mother's Day coming up this weekend, Alka talked about the kinds of things that women want in a gadget, what is important and why. She also had a host of consumer electronics gadgets that would be great for Mom this Mother's day. She was in the second part of the segment so if you want to tune in, click here and scroll the bar half way across to listen in.
In the last few weeks alone, Retrevo was also on KUFX-FM/KFOX-FM: the Greg Kihn Show (top rock music station in the Bay Area with over 300K listeners), KVUE.com, KBAY/KEZR FM, KEZR-FM: Marla Davies morning show, and KSCO-AM.
Note that Retrevo did not have any sponsorship, advertising and other connection to the vendors that were discussed. They were simply chosen based on their design, price and whether they'd make a great gift, particularly for moms who want gadgets to be simple and easy-to-use.
Some of the suggestions included the Plantronics Discovery 925 Bluetooth headset, which looks like a piece of jewelry, the Flip Video, which comes in an array of fun colors, and is small enough to fit in a purse or pocket, key chain photo frames, floating rose lights, webcams, and the new Canon SD1100 which comes in blue and pink as well as silver.
Ronn Owens remains a fabulous radio personality and has had a number of high powered guests on his show; Barbara Walters is slated for this month. In a format which explores everything from politics to popular culture, current events, personal issues and just plain gossip, his program is the ultimate electronic town meeting.
Before our segment, State Senator Carole Migden, the incumbent was on to discuss the issues. Many of the most colorful personalities of our times have been guests, including Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Barbara Bush, Desmond Tutu, Walter Cronkite, Burt Reynolds, Lauren Bacall, Caroline Kennedy, Huey Lewis, Summer Redstone and Barak Obama. Enjoy!
