First Impressions of the Apple TV: Lots of Entering Passwords Using the Remote

This is a daily opinion column written by Lowell Heddings, the founder of How-To Geek, featuring his take on the latest in the world of technology.

We got our new Apple TV units at HTG HQ and we’re busy playing with them to see how it all works, and getting things ready to publish a bunch of articles next week. But in the meantime, here are our initial thoughts:

The App Store Has Promise… the biggest feature in the new Apple TV is that you now there’s an App Store, and you can download video apps, games, and other things, like shopping or weather apps.

If You Want To Be A Great Parent, Just Do These 50 Small Things
Parenting is a tough job. Everyone wants to be a great parent, but no-one teaches you how to be a great parent – you have to pick it up yourself. There are lows and highs, and it can be tough to be the perfect parent every day. The main priority is making sure your child is happy, well-fed, loved and safe.
Check out 50 small things you can do to be an amazing parent.
1. Don’t try to fix everything. Often your child will need your help, but don’t run in to help every time without thinking. Sometimes your child will be able to solve their own problems, and letting them do so will teach them to be self-reliant.

Hilarious Quotes From Kids That Will Make You Love Them So Much
Buckle up. Once that child learns to talk there is no going back. I know we all wait for that moment when they can tell us how they really feel- as long as how they really feel is that we are the best parents ever and that they love us.
Here is the disappointing part: they don’t always feel that way, and when they don’t… they will letcha know about it.
Here is a list of some kid quotes that show just what you are in for when your prayers are answered and the flood gates of communication open.
1. “Why don’t you chill, Bill?” – 3 year old little girl.

2. “You smell … Read More »

15 Habits That Make Ultra Successful People Stand Out
Who the heck doesn’t want to succeed in life?
Despite our drive and ambition for success, we all define success differently. For many, it is all about the benjamins. For some, it’s building good and healthy relationships. For others, it’s simply being content with what you have.
As the founder of a blog called Run For Wealth, I have spent many years studying the concept of success. The pay off line at Run For Wealth is “Run A Fulfilling Life Race”. As such, to me success means leading a fulfilling life.
Whatever your definition of success, I have listed 15 habits of ultra-successful people that will help you live a fulfilling and abundant life.
1. They have an incredible amount of faith
Success begins with faith. You have to dream and believe in a concept. Before anything tangible, … Read More »

How the Relationship Between Sisters Changes Over Time
Ahhh… sisters!  They can be your best friend, your confidant, your nemesis and lots of things in between! Sisterhood is a complex combination of shared history and independence; a relationship that evolves and changes with time.

Being mentally strong can have profound effects on your entire life. When you are mentally strong, you are able to persevere during tough times, and continue to press ahead when you are succeeding.
Here are 7 things mentally strong people refuse to do. When you work on getting rid of these destructive, self-sabotaging habits, you’ll be amazed at the positive effects in your life.
