The Kitchen Calendar Goes High-Tech

Nest helps busy families keep in touch and coordinate their lives

One daughter has nightly soccer practice from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and dance class on Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Another daughter has band practice every day from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., except on Tuesdays, when she has a math tutor from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. For the parents who must get their kids to their activities, the problem isn’t with the scheduling, it’s that the schedule never makes it to the family’s cluttered and chaotic dry-erase “organizer” that lives permanently on the refrigerator, somewhere behind and among the magnets, sticky notes, and birthday invitations.

The organizer, it seems, needs some organizing.

Jonathan Rosoff and Steve McPherson, co-founders of Current, have and CEO of Current, has a solution to make your life easier—and make sure your son gets to his driving test. “We wanted to make a family collaboration platform that makes sense for today’s families,” Rosoff said.

Our team worked hand-in-hand with engineers from Intel’s all-in-one desktop, Ultrabook™ devices, and tablet PC teams during development to ensure that Nest syncs seamlessly with all your devices to keep in touch and manage family life wherever you go.”

Mission accomplished. The Nest Family Organizer* is the next-generation organizer for busy families on the go. It takes advantage of emerging touch technologies on all-in-one desktop computers, Ultrabook™ devices, and touch-enabled tablet PCs with Microsoft Windows* 8. Easily accessible from these devices, Next lets families create calendar events, multimedia notes and messages, and create and manage lists such as groceries, vacation ideas, and whatever else your family can imagine.

This next-generation “white board” for the family, available 24x7x365 from virtually anywhere, is optimized for Intel® architecture. Current worked hand-in-hand with engineers from Intel’s all-in-one desktop, Ultrabook device, and tablet PC teams. “Our relationship with Intel is excellent, and we’ve been thankful for that collaboration,” Rosoff said.
So, the chores get done. The kids get to soccer and dance and band practice on time. You get date night. Your son even makes it to his driving test. And you get to relax a bit.
