Tech Talk: iPhone 5 Hands on

September 28, 2012

I just got my iPhone 5 a few days ago and I’m already hooked. It makes my iPhone 4S look like a piker, and that’s no small feat. The iPhone 5 is 7.6 mm thin, 123 mm high, 58.6 mm wide and weighs just 112 grams. According to Apple, that’s 18 percent thinner and 20 […]

The social currency of photos: are you a creator or a curator?

September 27, 2012

Last Friday I retired my Blackberry and made the switch to the iPhone 5 and I’ve spent the days since adjusting.

The rise of the digital detective: trends in social media and law enforcement

September 20, 2012

Throughout this digital literacy series I’ve examined the many ways digital media has changed the way we live. This influence is so far-reaching that there are few, if any, industries that haven’t had to adapt accordingly. And with digital media playing such an important role in the everyday lives of Canadians, many of society’s basic […]

Five easy steps to social media failure

September 18, 2012

Lately I’ve been signing up a lot of corporate clients who have dipped their toes into social media without a ton of planning. You might call this their “experimentation phase”. While testing the waters is a great way to understand the lay of the land (mixed metaphor, but you know what I mean), it’s rarely […]

September 14, 2012

Logitech’s new line-up of Logitech UE products is a terrific addition to their product line. Ultimate Ears has long been the standard for in-ear monitors that musicians wear, so adding that expertise to a new line of products really ramps up Logitech’s offerings.
