Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Teaches: a hardware deviced designed to manage your home Internet.
This is a hardware device that works in concert with your phone or tablet and your router. It promises to "let you manage up to ten of your home’s connected devices." 

According to the online reviews, this is easier said than done. Before you spend the $100 for the Circle kit, make sure your existing router is compatible. And remember that Circle is not a router -- it works with one and the match must be perfect. There are other limitations -- you must make sure your children are not able to easily jump to a nearby Wi-Fi network (or data plan). Also, a guest to your home who wants to use your network must be registered as one of the ten devices, and the extra filtering could get in the way of their experience.    

Circle can't stop your child from viewing off-line content, such as books or movies that have been downloaded and stored. That includes off-line versions of Minecraft. 

Need to know. This device is good in theory, and it might help you manage your home network usage. But it is easy for reality to get in the way. It's never smart to get between a motivated child and something they are interested in. The bottom line -- there is no filter that can replace a smart, aware parent.
