Katherine Boehret on "Martha" Today


Although BoomTown is still in a tryptophan coma of turkey, I will not be missing one of our All Things Digital columnists on “The Martha Stewart Show” today.

That would be Katherine Boehret of The Mossberg Solution, who will be appearing on the television program this morning (check times for your area) to talk tech gadgets with Martha.

For those who do not know it, Martha is actually a geek in disguise. I met her at a Consumer Electronics Show more than a decade ago, where she was hanging with top nerds. And she has been a regular note-taking attendee of our D: All Things Digital conference over the years too.

Boehret, who can match her in that department, is showing a range of products, all centered around the holiday gift theme. Gadgets include the Demy Recipe Reader by Key Ingredient, and more.

Here is a link to the preview for the show (Martha apparently does not embed!), and I will post video clips when they become available.

Another gadget you don’t really need. Will not work once you get it home. New model out in 4 weeks. Battery life is too short to be of any use.
