5.  IronX Action Camera $299.99

Again keeping with the active mom theme...

(If time)  6.Belkin Kitchen Stand and Wand for Tablets - about $25

Tablets like the iPad and Kindle Fire make great kitchen companions. They can serve as infinitely expansive digital cookbooks, complete with video instructions, or be used to stream news and TV shows. The trouble is, these pricey devices aren't naturally at home in the kitchen. To rectify this, mom can prop her tablet up on the Belkin Kitchen Stand and use the accompanying stylus to keep the touchscreen free of turkey


App of the week:

Cyber Dust  for iOS  - Free

Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, and investor on ABC’s Shark Tank, released Cyber Dust, a new app that lets you send multiple text messages and photos that disappear after 30 seconds. Think WhatsApp combined with Snapchat. The app makes it easy to have control over your messages so you can have private conversations and send destructing photos. Like Snapchat, you will be notified if someone takes a screenshot. You can download Cyber Dust from the App Store.

Customer Review: Thanks to Mark Cuban the Cyber Dust App makes communication with friends and colleagues so much easier. I'm always looking for ways to make my information more private and with the Cyber Dust App my messages are always secure.
