Smart phones and internet social media tools have become time drainers on our already busy lives. They’ve invaded our evening routine and become dinner guests at some tables. Steve Cooper, Co-founder and editor-in-chief of Hitched (a leading website on marriage) helps us to embrace the positives of such technology. Steve will share applications, websites, and devices that can enhance a healthy relationship. He’ll also share trends he sees from his work at And by the way, he’ll be sharing things live from California as we teleconference him in.
