Festivities in Miniature
Whether it is the romance of travel or the fascination with technology, traditional visions of the December holidays would hardly be complete without images of a miniature train creeping around the Christmas tree or of children sprawled on the floor lost in an imaginary journey.

Making Holiday Memories, Digitally
In most families, taking photos at the holidays is as much a tradition as baking and wrapping packages. Often, however, roles of festive film are developed mid-January and the prints disappear into albums or, more likely, shoeboxes and desk drawers. Digital cameras are changing all that. By offering instant, inexpensive images, these cameras are transforming the way families think about and enjoy the pictures they take. (read the story...)

A PC for Jr.?
Does a child need his or her own computer? That's a question facing many parents today. Just a few years ago, even the most high-tech of families had only one personal computer at home. But today, the family PC is one very busy machine. It's a workstation, a communication tool, a game console and increasingly, a regular part of schoolwork. That's leading many families to consider purchasing a desktop expressly for their child's use. But making a smart tech purchase for your child isn't always an easy task. Here's a quick parent's guide to buying a PC for JR: (read the story...)

Moving Image: An eye to many screens
Films enjoy — or suffer from — a distinction no other technology or art does: The idea that audiences understand them inside out. Seeing moving images as frequently as we do in movie theaters, on television, through video games and through our computers, we've come to feel something like homegrown experts. As media critics frequently point out, moving images are everywhere, and their effect, as the pictures from September 11 recently reminded us, are as potent as ever. (read the story...)

Winterize! (before the snow falls)
My husband and I bought an 83-year-old home in the spring of 1993. It was our dream house, and everything about it looked perfect through our rose-colored first-time-homeowner glasses. But, as is too often the case, things were not as they seemed. (read the story...)

Credit Cards: the future trap
