Tech Talk: Nikon COOLPIX AW100 – Put it in your Travel Bag

June 29, 2012

For years, whenever I travelled, I liked to take my trusty Rebel for a full-sized Single Lens Reflex (SLR) with several lenses and an additional flash.

Book review: The Virtual Self: How Our Digital Lives Are Impacting The World Around Us

June 28, 2012

I’m going to reveal a secret to you right now: as I write this post I’m wearing sweatpants and a tank top and my hair is in its naturally curly disarray. This is a far cry from the professional photo I display on my various social media profiles. Dressed as I am, I go through […]

June 17, 2012

When I first asked the folks at ioSafe for one of their Rugged Portable hard drives to test out I had a bunch of ideas of how I was going to test the device out. Let’s get the pricing and the details out of the way first, then on to the tests I wanted to […]

Work teams struggle with social sharing

June 16, 2012

CALGARY, AB, Jun 14, 2012/ Troy Media – I write a lot about social media for external communications, but what about social media for work teams? Turns out there’s a lot of potential for internal communications, but it’s still a patchwork quilt of geekery and confusion. I’m a huge fan of trying new applications in […]

Has digital killed the TV star? Not so fast…

June 14, 2012
