There are plenty of exciting new sci-fis, mysteries, and geek-friendly shows to watch this Fall, but plenty of shows we've come to love will return for a new season of entertainment. We put together a list of what to watch and record throughout the week to get you ready for the upcoming Fall lineup. The only major scheduling conflict is between Castle and NBC's new show Revolution. Decisions, decisions!
To mark this year's Fashion Week kickoff extravaganza, Lanvin has created a line of limited-edition tech accessories with an eccentric touch. Featuring original sketches by designer Alber Elbaz, these cases are full of color and whimsy. Choosing between the iPad case ($145) or iPhone case ($85) may be too difficult; we might just have to add both to our list of coveted designer cases.
If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?

Attaining a balance between work and your personal life is a skill in itself, but finding the fine line between them is no small task either. Well, your smartphone is there to help. Make your phone an invaluable tool for streamlining tasks and managing time with these apps that will bring peace of mind to the juggling act.
Make way for the newest product on the forever-hot tablet scene, the Sony Xperia Tablet S. Running on Android 4.0, the Xperia has the same hallmarks of many tablets currently on the market: an 8MP front camera, full-sized SD card slot, an HDMI port, and WiFi compatibility. Where Sony hopes to differentiate the Xperia Tablet S is by making it the hub of the home theater. Control a TV, DVD player, and audio system while using the Watch Now app as an interactive visual program guide for live TV. Use the Tablet S to change the channel or update your current show selection to the social network sites.
With the idea that tablets, more than any other device, are used by the whole family, there's also a Guest Mode functionality, with which custom profile settings can be created for each user. If children are likely to have the Xperia Tablet S within their grasp, specific applications can be set to restrict access to everything questionable the Internet has to offer.
Available Sept. 7 with preorders beginning today, the Xperia Tablet S comes in three models: 16GB ($400), 32GB ($500), and 64GB ($600). Does the latest tablet addition interest you?

Never heard of Julie Foucher? She's the women's runner-up of the 2012 CrossFit Games, which means she's the second "Fittest Woman on Earth." I actually had the chance to meet Julie at the 2012 CrossFit Games afterparty, and she was everything I expected and more. She was kind, humble, and sweet, and definitely a role model for female athletes everywhere. Julie works hard in every aspect of her life, and seeing this motivates me to become a better version of myself. Here are three reasons why Julie Foucher inspires me.
