The Kitchen Laptop Rises Again

I know we've plugged our amazing repurposed-laptop kitchen PC before, but I'm going to do it again because a) the project was my idea and I'm a glory hog, and b) because Lifehacker pointed today to a new Web and offline application that would be its perfect mate. Cozi manages your family's calendar, shopping lists, messages and more. You can tap into it from your phone—either by calling an (800) number or by text—and you can send other people's phones text-message reminders through the program. I suppose you could use it if you didn't have an awesome wall-mounted PC, but that would be lame.—Mike Haney
