September 12, 2014

  TP-LINK’s newest Internet range extender, the TL-WPA4220KIT 300Mbps Wi-Fi Range Extender is designed to extend Internet connections to every room of the house through existing electrical wiring. No special wires to add makes this a perfect device to use in a multi-story house where sometimes reception isn’t that good as you get further away […]

Tech Talk: When is a piece of art a speaker and a speaker a piece of art?

September 5, 2014

It’s kind of a chicken and egg thing as far as the Libratone Loop is concerned. The Loop is a speaker – and a very good one at that. It’s also a piece of art, whether hanging on the wall or on a table. The $499.95 CAD Loop is a circular speaker that can be […]

Tech Talk: Samsung’s new 65” UHD Curved TV is drop dead gorgeous

August 29, 2014

I don’t know whether it’s the curved design, the thin bezel or the UHD (Ultra High Definition), but the new Samsung 65″ 4K Ultra HD 120Hz 3D Curved LED Smart TV (UN65HU9000FXZC) takes my breath away. At a suggested retail of $4,999.99 CAD it isn’t cheap, but . . . When I was asked if […]

Tech Talk: BRAVEN BRV-BANK is a battery pack for active people

August 23, 2014

I think of myself as a pretty heavy smartphone user – I use my Phone for virtually everything and if I ever lost it I’d be in pretty big trouble in many ways. Because of that, I rarely, if ever, manage to make it through a full day on a single charge. So I try […]

Tech Talk: Garmin nüvi 2798LMT helps you going forward or back

August 15, 2014

Lovie and I made the mistake of buying a new vehicle in the last few months. We thought we’d replace her old clunker with a spanky new vehicle and since I’m kind of a techie guy, I decided that the time was right for a built-in Nav system and a backup camera. I love driving […]

Tech Talk: Nikon COOLPIX AW120 offers a lot in a compact package

August 8, 2014

I’ve tested out many cameras over the years and I still haven’t found what I consider to be the perfect camera I’d like to take on a vacation. Nikon’s new COOLPIX AW120 isn’t that camera either, however this feature-packed little gem is a terrific camera. I have a very distinct idea in my noggin about […]

Tech Talk: Logitech X300 Mobile Wireless Stereo Speaker rocks!

August 1, 2014

This is the summer of Bluetooth speakers, with just about every manufacturer possible coming out with new, improved models that are all compact, powerful, rugged and relatively inexpensive. The latest Bluetooth speaker from Logitech, doesn’t bear the name Ultimate Ears (UE), like their offerings from the past couple of years, but the sound is as […]

Tech Talk: V-moda XS On-Ear headphones are a winner

July 25, 2014

I’ve tested out a ton of on-ear, over-ear and in-ear headphones over the years and have been impressed with many of the recent offerings in particular, but one manufacturer keeps rising to the top in terms of the type of sound I like best and the design and obvious quality. That manufacturer is V-moda. A […]

Tech Talk: Motrr Galileo – lots of fun in a small package

July 19, 2014

I have to admit that when the Rep firm for Motrr approached me and offered to send me a Motrr Galileo I was intrigued, but not really all that excited. About the size of a coffee cup, the Motrr Galileo is a motorized self-turning dock you can stick your iPhone 4 and higher and the […]

Tech Talk: iHome’s iBN26 Bluetooth Speaker System – not just your average Bluetooth speaker

July 11, 2014

  iHome’s new iBN26 Bluetooth Speaker System is different from a lot of the other Bluetooth speakers available. First of all, it’s no wireless and doesn’t have an onboard rechargeable battery. Secondly, at a suggested retail of $79.95CAD, it’s priced a little lower than lots of the competition. Thirdly, its look is distinctive and desirable […]
