Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 102August 4, 2015 | Alex Cadice
Hhhhheeeeellllllllllooooo, everyone! How are we doing? It’s still early in the week, but the power of positivity should help you through the day!
I’ll be honest. I’m three … Read More
Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 90May 19, 2015 | Alex Cadice
Howdy, howdy everyone! It’s my mom’s birthday tomorrow. So, happy early b-day, mom! There’s maybe a 12 percent chance she reads this, but, hey, if she does, awesome! Read More
Awesomesauce | App HappyApril 23, 2015 | Laura Mego
How do you manage the apps on your smartphone?
When I first approached this question, it seemed benign. Upon further conversation with others, I’ve learned that the question is anything but innocuous; in fact, it’s downright divisive. I’m talking “Hello, I’m a Mac. And I’m a PC” levels of loyalty here. While I’ve come to realize that there is no middle ground between the two camps (and that I’m, of course, some weird hybrid of the two; folders AND mutiple home screens for the win!) in my quest to discover which method is best, I’ve come across two of my new favorite time-wasters…I mean…apps.
Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 86April 21, 2015 | Alex Cadice
Happy Tuesday, everybody! I’m hoping you can help me out with this week’s InterNEAT. Read More
Awesomesauce | Dachshunds!April 9, 2015 | Laura Mego
Confession time: I had a different article planned for Awesomesauce this week, but after falling down the rabbit-hole that is the internet due to the above video this week, I have a new obsession: DACHSHUNDS!
Spurred in part by this, the other viral doggie video of the week, I clicked on YouTube for (what I thought was) a hot second, and proceeded to waste about three hours of my life watching the cute suckers. I’ve always had a thing for Corgis, and I do love me a Basset Hound, so we’re going to chalk it up to my love of short-legged dogs (and not my obsession with all things canine itself)…really, I swear that’s it!
Awesomesauce- Instagram ObsessionsMarch 26, 2015 | Laura Mego
One of the MANY reasons that I love Instagram as a medium is that the app allows you to tell a story with an image. Yeah, yeah, “a picture is worth 1,000 words” is inevitably running through your head right now, but let me explain.
Awesomesauce | Retro Modern TunesFebruary 26, 2015 | Laura Mego
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but according to every BuzzFeed Quiz I’ve ever taken, I’m something of an old soul. Seriously, I’m a fan of Blues Brother Ray Bans (no New Wayfarers for me….what is that anyway? They look tiny on your face!) pompadours, and Frankie Valli. I credit all of these loves to my awesome parents, who introduced me to Motown before I could talk, and if the popularity of Duffy, Amy Winehouse, and Adele in recent years is any indication, the rest of the world is finally jumping on the retro bandwagon too.

Awesomesauce | Flight SearchFebruary 12, 2015 | Laura Mego
I think one of the absolute best things about being a person with a “grownup job” is that suddenly, when I take vacation time, I get paid not to work- it’s honestly one of my favorite things about being an adult (that, and the fact that I’m legally allowed to drink, and that no one tells me when to go to bed anymore…we’ve got a rebel over here folks!)
Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 74January 27, 2015 | Alex Cadice
Put your best foot forward, and I think this InterNEAT is only getting better from here! Read More
Awesomesauce | Foot CardiganJanuary 15, 2015 | Laura Mego
Ugh. It’s getting to be that time of year when I get depressed by the weather. For those of you who live in LA, or Florida, or somewhere else annoyingly sunny and perfect all the time, I know you have no idea what I mean. But, for those of us living in the Heart of it All in the midwest, January is “God, is winter EVER going to be over?” season. Read More
Awesomesauce | Post-Holiday Online ShoppingJanuary 1, 2015 | Laura Mego
The holidays have now come and gone, which for me means two things: 1) time to think about hitting the gym for about a hot second (then go back to Netflix marathons on my couch) AND 2) online shopping. Seriously, for most people, the end of Chistmahaunukwaanza means the end of shopping, but sometimes the best deals come after the holiday rush. Plus, with no crazy shoppers, everyone wins! My favorite thing to do is to hit the online sales after the big push is over to scope out some cool deals. Read More
Awesomesauce | A Cappella ChristmasDecember 18, 2014 | Laura Mego
As we discussed in last week’s roundtable, Christmas music has a definitive place on the calendar. That being said, once we’re into “Christmas Music Season”, all bets are off. You … Read More
Awesomesauce | Funny FolksDecember 4, 2014 | Laura Mego
Ah, the holidays. That magical time of year when turkey, tree-trimming, and (if you’re a member of my family) inter-generational viewings of “The Hangover” abound! While many of us rejoice that we’ll have one and a half whole days in a row of Christmas Vacation where no one truly expects you to answer a work email (it’s sad that that makes me happy, but such is adult life) others (ahem, also me) are thrilled to have two whole days in a row to troll YouTube for funny videos and not feel guilty about it.

I still remember the first time someone introduced me to Etsy- it was in a group meeting in college, when we were trying to do anything but work on the … Read More
Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 62November 4, 2014 | Alex Cadice
How we doin’, guys? I hope all is well. With the weather getting colder, I wanted to focus this week’s InterNEAT! on some weatherproof entertainment. Read More
Awesomesauce | Subscription BoxesOctober 9, 2014 | Laura Mego
We all have those moments when we realize that we’ve turned into a full-fledged adult. For most of us, it’s the first time we decide that we’d rather not drink Natty Light, or the time when we say “it was a really long week, can we just stay in tonight?” on a Friday at 6pm. Read More
Awesomesauce | Relay AppSeptember 11, 2014 | Laura Mego
By now, our mass hysteria regarding Apple’s worst kept secret (an iWatch…duh!) is over, and we can focus on more important things; like your new favorite app!
Of course, everybody loves a good GIF (what’s funnier than watching a 10 second loop of a dog licking a glass door, or some lady falling flat on her face over and over? Answer: nothing), so I knew right after downloading it that Relay was going to be a lot of fun. At its most basic, Relay is a GIF messenger, but the real delight of the app is in the details.

Awesomesauce- John MayerAugust 28, 2014 | Laura Mego
I’ve always been a lover of pop music, but for the longest time I was ashamed to admit it. I’ll be honest- I was afraid of judgment in the “oh, … Read More
Welcome to the InterNEAT! Volume 50August 12, 2014 | Alex Cadice
Happy Tuesday, y’all! It’s the big 5-0 here at the InterNEAT. Age is just a number. Gotta keep hitting the ground running. No dilly dallying. Gotta commit and risk the consequences, just like my man Ian. Read More
Awesomesauce | RedditJuly 31, 2014 | Laura Mego
Until recently, Reddit was, to me, a lot like professional soccer in the United States; people around me didn’t seem very interested most of the time, but those that were fans, were FANS. About 6 months ago, I decided to jump down the rabbit hole myself and see what all the Reddit fuss was about. Read More
