October is one of my favorite months with the Exceeding Expectations kids.  As you all know, our top priority for the kids is, and always will be, education. That said, every October we participate in two athletic events that I feel are significant in laying the groundwork necessary for them to be successful in the academic world and in their adult lives.  The first of these events is the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) triathlon, aptly called “The Best Day in Triathlon.” Here’s a brief overview from their website:  “In 1994, three friends started a triathlon fundraiser to help one man regain his independence after a tragic accident left him a quadriplegic. From one came many, and Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) took root in the belief that sports and an active lifestyle are a pathway to more in life. Since that fundraiser 25 years ago, CAF has been committed to breaking the financial barrier that individuals with physical challenges face to participate in sports and live a healthy and active lifestyle.”  Participating alongside challenged athletes in a very tough race gives our kids an additional perspective on their own lives.

CES 2011: The Three Tablets That Wowed Us Most


CES 2011 was a deluge of tablets. The eye-popping experience was akin to being a kid in a candy emporium. So we turned to the online coverage of CES to guide us. Below, we’ve listed the three tablets that wowed us most. These tablets reportedly include some impressive specs, specifically three sorely missing from the iPad: Flash-support, cameras and multitasking. Note that while we have yet to fully test and “tablet-optimize” Android and BlackBerry tablets, there’s a good possibility you can connect to Boingo Wi-Fi if you have installed Boingo Mobile app. Stay tuned for an update on our progress. Meanwhile, we encourage you to provide feedback to us if you connect to Boingo on these tablets.

Recently-announced tablet competitors may steal some of the Galaxy Tab’s thunder, but we’re guessing the device will continue
