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. I’ve tested out every variety of noise cancelling headphones that Bose has manufactured over the years, but I really didn’t know the history behind these headphones until a recent visit to New […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]
