"Tech-In" to the New School Year With Scott Steinberg

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2013) - Technology, parenting and business expert, Scott Steinberg, has some helpful tech tips for parents of students heading back to school:

Whether your child is eight or eighteen, the unavoidable truth is technology is taking over all aspects of the education process. From kindergarten classes to college campuses, emerging technology has made a positive impact on schooling for all ages -- and it's not stopping anytime soon.

Computers are now essential for school and you want to make sure you buy a computer that supports the right educational tools for your student. With Windows 8 PCs, you get Office 365 University, multitasking tools such as Snap, study apps like Flashcards Pro and free backup and sharing with SkyDrive. Through September 1st, Microsoft has a "Chip-In" program where friends and family can contribute money towards the purchase of a Windows 8 PC and Microsoft will chip in a 10% discount with free shipping and no tax!

A great budget option is the Windows 8 HP Pavilion 11 TouchSmart Notebook which is powered by the latest AMD A-series dual core processor. What that means for you and your student is that you can give them a super powerful, touch screen laptop for under $400! This HP TouchSmart notebook can resume from sleep mode in seconds for fast access to email, social media, music and more thanks to the built in AMD Start Now Technology.

Many students use their iPhones to access everything from social media to educational apps that help them study, organize and learn; but the battery life is notoriously bad. The Duracell Powermat iPhone 5 solution more than doubles the life of your iPhone 5 and the snap-on-snap-off battery gives you the power of 2 iPhones packed into one. Plus Duracell Powermat just came out with their new wireless backup battery line called "Go Power" which works with both micro and regular USB port devices and gives you three power options -- Day Trip, Overnighter and Long Haul.
