WAIT! Don't throw that toaster out the window just yet!!


Ever try figuring out a product/device and end up so frustrated that you want to throw it out the window?!?  Oh, do I ever know that feeling!  From instruction books that leave out important information to set up guides with only 2 diagrams (and no words) to go on, I've unfortunately been-there-done-thatUgh.

So what's a girl to do?  I've found a great resource - Techlicious!  I don't think I could say it any better than they already have, so here's what they are all about (per their website):
"According to the Consumer Electronics Association, women influence the purchase of more than 90% of consumer electronics. Yet there is nowhere women can go to get straightforward advice tailored to them that is not overly geeky, snarky, or dumbed-down.

Techlicious serves the role of that tech-savvy friend who women can count on to share tips and tricks to get the most out of technology; whether that’s saving time in their hectic schedules, discovering new ways to enjoy their personal interests, or keeping up with the latest technology trends and styles.

Techlicious offers women the authoritative yet approachable information they’re seeking. We keep our readers up-to-date with how-to videos, new product and website recommendations, as well as useful tips for getting the most out of the products they already own. Our Buyer’s Guides provide advice on choosing the right product for every lifestyle, and include recommendations at various price points. Techlicious also offers a community forum where women can get answers to their questions and share their own tips and discoveries.

With decades of experience in consumer products, our writers and editors cut through the hype and technical jargon to give women the information they need, in language that’s easy to understand. We make tech simple."
It's quite a helpful website (so you don't end up throwing that appliance out the window after all, lol.)
