Tech Talk: Are the new iPads worth upgrading to?

November 14, 2014

I’ve been a big fan of the iPad since it was first released and I can’t see that changing any time soon – especially after the release of Apple’s newest iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The question many iPad users are asking is whether it’s worth upgrading to one of these new iPads […]

Tech Talk: booq Cobra Brief – simply the best business laptop bag there is

November 7, 2014

I travel a fair amount and over the past nearly thirty-some years that I’ve been covering technology have carried my gear in a wide variety of different bags and backpacks. Wow, that makes me feel old! I’ve had my favourites over the years, but the bag I’ve been testing out for the past month or […]

Tech Talk: The iPhone 6 I want is . . . um, I’m not sure

November 4, 2014

  I’m lucky – I admit it; I’ve had an opportunity to test out both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus before I make a decision on which one I would most like to get. It was surprisingly difficult to make this outwardly simple decision. Apple has made it more difficult by making the phones […]

Samsung’s $419.99CAD Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one of the two variants in the Tab S lineup that comprise their top-of-the-line tablets.

Tech Talk: Toshiba’s Satellite P30W-B offers the best of two worlds for users

October 18, 2014

Toshiba’s new Satellite P30W-B is a notebook. Toshiba’s new Satellite P30W-B is a tablet. Toshiba’s new Satellite P30W-B is BOTH – and it works.

Tech Talk: Logitech K480 – one keyboard to run them all

October 12, 2014

As I’ve travelled more I find that I don’t like to take a computer along on the trips. I like to use my iPad because I can use it for so many things. The problem is that doing work is a bit of a chore on the iPad compared to the computer. So I always […]

Tech Talk: New Bose QC25 Noise Cancelling Headphones are the best yet

October 5, 2014

The new Bose QuietComfort 25 over ear noise cancelling headphones are the end result of decades of work that Bose has directed toward noise cancellation headphones.

Tech Talk: Hands on with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

September 27, 2014

The new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus mark what Apple claims to be the most significant jump in technology since they first came out with the iPhone. I remember sitting in the Moscone Center in San Francisco on January 9th, 2007, watching Steve Jobs announce the first iPhone at the MacWorld convention. Everyone in attendance that […]

Tech Talk: The iOS 8 Update; is it worth it? Hell yeah!

September 19, 2014

  Like millions of iPhone users I couldn’t wait for the iOS 8 update to become available. When the 17th rolled around I was up and downloading it first thing in the morning. I chose to do the direct download to my iPhone and although it took quite a while because the update is 1.1 […]
