Tech Talk: Brother MFC-J835dw printer – perfect for Back to School

August 31, 2012

The Brother MFC-J835dw has been around for a while, but when I asked Brother Canada to send me a review unit of a small multifunction that’s available for a decent price and is perfect for small spaces (under $150 CAD), that’s the one they sent me. Works for me. I find that I use printers […]

Paging Dr. Digital – a social media and health care check-up

August 30, 2012

Human beings are a little weird about their health and in many ways digital technology has made us even weirder. Google has made me a minor hypochondriac – more than once I’ve diagnosed myself with a life-threatening disease in five clicks or less.

Diving into social media, you might drown

As a teenager I spent a lot of time in the pool at the YMCA. Training to be a lifeguard, teaching and practicing, I reeked of chlorine most of the time. In the summers I did the same at camp. One thing they taught us over and over was to avoid diving into unknown waters. […]

The Dyson DC37 Turbinehead Animal canister vacuum – I love the way Dyson names their vacuums – is a dream come true for me. Now that sounds like a weird thing for an old guy like me to say, but I’m telling you, this $599.99 CAD vacuum, and for that matter all the vacuums made using […]

Watch out boys, women are social media mavens

August 23, 2012

You heard it here first: digital media is changing the way we act. And hold on to your hats folks because how we act is also influencing digital media.

Open wide and say “ahh” to social media checkups

August 20, 2012

An appointment with a digital marketer is like an appointment with a medical specialist, minus the waiting room and the stale magazines (we bring our iPads). Digital marketers may have a better bedside manner, but the process is remarkably similar to a doctor’s visit. When you walk in the door you have a problem, an […]
