Press Release: Anda Technologies and Borqs Announce Partnership to Launch Anda’s Symbol-based Communication Wearable for Children at COMPUTEX 2016


COMPUTEX Taipei is currently going on and while I’m not there I get some fun press releases. I have a young niece that is the bee’s knees and out of all the press releases I think the Snapdragon Wear is a great innovative product for kids…Maybe even adults who haven’t migrated to the 21st century.

Below is the official press release and I hope that I may be able to get one to review. Enjoy!

Taipei, Taiwan — May 31, 2016 – Anda Technologies, a Latin American children’s wearable designer and developer headquartered in Lima, Peru and Borqs International Holding Corp., a global product & solutions provider for Android based smart connected devices, are pleased to announce that they have partnered to develop and launch Anda’s first symbol-based communication wearable for children.

My Chargers and Me

Charger 3Yesterday I posted an article on in regards to smart phone chargers. Since my pictures were too large I was unable to add these pictures to the article. I decided to post on Hi-Tech Chic some of these cool pictures of the chargers that were not included in the article. My favorite of these all is the myCharge STYLEPOWER and EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 10K.

When I was at SV ComicCon the EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 10K made me a popular lady since it can charge 2 devices at the same time. I became “that girl” with the power! The myCharge STYLEPOWER is something I use daily because of the design, size, and its light weight.

For those who have not seen the article you can find it here along with the review of Mophie Juice Pack Air, Mophie power reserve 1X, Nomad Road Trip, myCharge STYLEPOWER, Flip 20 Recharger and EnerPlex Jumpr Slate 10K . Enjoy the slide show!

“The Carol Burnett Show” is Released on Digital for the First Time Ever, Exclusively on iTunes‏!

CArolPeople often ask where I get my wacky sense of humor and though my family is hilarious Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball were my major influences. They had this great sense of humor, humbleness and likability with every character they portrayed.

Today, “The Carol Burnett Show” seasons 1-4 was released on digital for the first Time ever and exclusively on iTunes‏. Below is the trailer video of those who have worked with her and also Betty White (who doesn’t love her?!) and also the official press release of the Carol Burnett Show on the itunes.


Fairfax, Va. (May 17, 2016) – For the first time ever, four volumes of the legendary television series “The Carol Burnett Show” are available in a digital format, Time Life announced today. Classic TV aficionados and newcomers can now enjoy this beloved series – heralded as one of the “100 Best Television Shows of All Time” – exclusively for digital download on iTunes at

Says Burnett, “Through Time Life’s passionate efforts, we’ve reached so many fans, both new and old as the wagon wheel. At last, our little variety show takes its place on devices.”

“We’re thrilled that this timeless series is available exclusively on iTunes. Aside from being one of the most iconic TV variety shows to ever air, ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ and its sketch comedy format is a perfect complement to collections of comedy fans of every era,” says Jeffrey Peisch, SVP, New Product Development & Marketing for Time Life.

“The Best of The Carol Burnett Show, Volume 1”

These episodes feature uproarious guest appearances from Carl Reiner, Lily Tomlin, Tim Conway, Jack Gilford, John Byner, Andy Griffith and Helen Reddy. Fan favorite sketches include “Rebecky” (the movie take off of Rebecca), “Carol & Sis,” “Nora Desmond,” and “Snow White: 15 Years Later.”

About The Carol Burnett Show

While there’s no truth to the rumor that “CBS” ever stood for The Carol Burnett Show, for 11 seasons and 278 episodes, this star-studded extravaganza of sketch comedy, song and dance became entertainment central for the network and TV viewers. Taped before a live audience at Hollywood’s CBS Television City Studio 33, The Carol Burnett Show featured clever, dazzling production numbers in an intimate environment, thanks to strategic camera placement that brought the actors and audience closer together. Burnett operated in a relaxed theater setting that allowed her to take questions, cut loose with her famous Tarzan yell and join fellow performers Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner to have a laugh or sing a song. The show received 25 Emmy Awards and eight Golden Globes, making it one of the most honored shows in television history. TIME Magazine named The Carol Burnett Show one of the “100 Best Television Shows of all Time” and Carol Burnett has been honored with more People’s Choice Awards than any other actress.
