Twitter Party: Tech to Connect

Balancing our personal lives with work is always a challenge. We want to be there for our families and friends while keeping up with the dynamics of a fast paced world around us. Whether it be school, work, or the demands of running a home, the days of the daily planner are gone. We need the convenience of that shopping list, a phone number, a birthday reminder, a great place to eat nearby, the ease of sharing a special moment with loved ones and the ability to reschedule that business meeting all at our finger tips.

How do you stay connected? Is there an app you use that makes life easier? Do you love to use social media to share information or a fun picture? If you love your gadgets as much as we do, then let's connect!

#Latinas4G Connecting With Sprint

Bloggers love to keep up-to-date with the newest and most buzzed-about technology, and at the moment one of the biggest tech headlines is Sprint´s wireless 4G network which has officially launched in 68 cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Houston, Orlando and Washington D.C.

Sprint and Latina Bloggers Connect teamed up to select four lifestyle bloggers from across the country to share their story of what they can do with 4G--enabling fast mobile downloads, wireless video chat and turbo-charged mobile Web browsing up to 10 times faster than 3G service-- and how they were able to share the epic moments in their life with a Samsung Epic phone with Sprint 4G.

Two more bloggers received the Sanyo Zio smartphone, loaded with the new Sprint Lo2Yo ID Packs with customized Google Android apps.  Three of these packs are catered to the Latino market--Lo2Yo Mujer, Lo2Yo Futbol and Lo2Yo Latino--and we can't wait to read Carrie's (Tiki Tiki Blog) and Rory's (Mama Contemporanea) stories of how they put these to use in their life.

Follow these six bloggers and the hashtag #Latinas4G during the next 10 days to read their stories and find out how 4G can enhance your life:
