Tech Savvy

Mothers Day Banner

YOU don’t need to call a tech-savvy mum’s iPhone to see how she is because you follow her on Twitter. Besides, she’s too busy setting up the new 3D television she ordered online. The tech-savvy mum is not necessarily a Sci Fi fan, but when combating germs or deleting a file she has been caught saying “exterminate, exterminate” in her best Dalek voice.
