Tech Talk: Fujitsu SV600 overhead scanner is great for mags and books

May 8, 2015

Fujitsu’s ScanSnap SC600 has ben around for a couple of years now, but it remains one of the most unique scanners available for the home or small business user. It looks like a desk lamp, but what it really is, is a terrific overhead scanner, with a very small footprint that scans whatever materials you […]

Tech Talk: Timex Ironman One+ – the perfect watch for a serious runner

May 1, 2015

I used to run every day, but that was quite a few years ago when I had knees that actually worked and weighed considerably less than I do now – running is a fond memory for me. So when Timex sent me their new TIMEX® IRONMAN® ONE GPS+, and HR smartwatch to review, I did […]

Tech Talk: Sony’s SRS-X55 is a Bluetooth speaker worth looking at

April 25, 2015

A few weeks ago I reviewed Sony’s excellent SRS-X11 speakers. These tiny Bluetooth speakers operate as stand-alone speakers, or can be paired together to offer stereo separation from one speaker to the next. I was very impressed with the quality and depth of the sound those sub-$80 speakers put out. This week I’m reviewing the […]

Tech Talk: What’s the best mouse? The Logitech MX Master wireless!

April 17, 2015

I’ve never done this, but I’ll tell you right up front that I’ve used Logitech mice for many years and they are definitely my favourites. I still have and use my MX Revolution, which first came to the market in 2006 – how often can you say you’ve used the same device for eleven years? […]

Tech Talk: Sony’s SRS-X11 Speakers – lots of sound in a small package

April 10, 2015

I’ve been testing out a pair of Sony SRS-X11 Portable Bluetooth speakers for a while and I have to say that I’m impressed with the big sound they deliver. The SRS-X11 is a small (61mm/side) cube that weighs only 215 grams, but delivers sound you would normally attribute to a much larger speaker. These $79.99CAD […]

Tech Talk: Got a Mac? Get DiskWarrior!

April 3, 2015

I’ve used Macs for many years and one program that I’ve always considered to be essential to own is DiskWarrior. I’ve used it since it first came out prior to 2000, and I’ll certainly never be without it. Alsoft’s newest version, DiskWarrior 5.0 marks the first real update to the software in a few years […]

Tech Talk: Epson SureColor P600 offers exceptional print quality for graphics professionals

March 20, 2015

I don’t very often take on testing out a printer like the Epson SureColor P600 because I tend to look at printers that would be best suited for a small office environment. While you can certainly use this printer in an office environment, you’d definitely be wasting it – where this printer is best suited […]

Tech Talk: harman/kardon’s Esquire Mini speaker checks a lot of boxes for a road warrior

March 13, 2015

If I told you that for under $190 CAD you could get a very portable Bluetooth speaker from harman/kardon that was only a bit larger than a smartphone you’d think I was pulling your leg. If that speaker had pretty darn good sound then you’d be sure of it. Truth is, Harman/kardon does, indeed have […]

Tech Talk: Nikon’s new D5500 is worth a look at

March 6, 2015

Nikon’s new D5500 SLR is an upgraded version of the D5300, with many of the same specs as the D5300, and a terrific new 3.2-inch, 1,037,000 dot touch sensitive LCD screen that has a variable angle bracket. The touch screen is a real treat and is something I find much more intuitive to use than […]

Tech Talk: Seagate Seven is the thinnest hard drive you’ll see

February 27, 2015

I’m always on the lookout for a smaller hard drive. I usually take my MacBook Air on trips and having a little hard drive along just makes dealing with everything that much easier. I recently got a Seagate Seven to test out and this might be the closest thing yet to the perfect hard drive […]
