Erie, PA Is Better Than Silicon Valley

People ask, "Erie, PA? Not Silicon Valley?"
Here are the reasons I can't find a better location to start a technology company in Erie.

1. Fun, easy-going employees who not only understand teamwork, but truly pull together in such a way that we have a multiplicative effect (the synergy that you hear about but rarely experience). It shone brightly during this holiday season and throughout CES, and I am so proud of every single employee and so honored that they are working for us.

CES so far

Highlights: (pictures to come...)

WIRED Magazine named the SleepPhones Effortless as one of the top 11 gadgets at CES this year.

How to Stay Healthy During the Holiday Season

Patients often ask me how to prevent getting sick during the winter or when there are lots of people gathering, such as over the holidays. Sometimes, they have young children to protect, and sometimes, there are frail elderly relatives or someone who is immunosuppressed who can't afford to be sick. Other than giving my patient a flu shot, here are some of my more general tips.

5 Reasons Why SleepPhones are Essential for Holiday Travel

Traveling over the holidays

There are many reasons why you may need SleepPhones this holiday season, especially if you are going out of town. Be sure to pack SleepPhones for your travels!

1. Unfamiliar Place - SleepPhones can help you feel more comfortable in a new place because the pajamas for your ears are the same ones you wear at home. So even if the pillow's not quite the same, your familiar head gear will still help you feel a bit more at home.
