Tech Talk: Beats by Dr. Dre over-ear Studio headphones are great

January 9, 2015

One of the most watched TV commercials over this Christmas season has been the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones one with the kid grooving along until Scrooge asks him what he’s wearing. At the end Scrooge says “I want those indeed” – so do I. I’ve been testing out a pair of Beats by […]

Tech Talk: Will 2015 be the year of the Apple Watch?

January 2, 2015

Some pundits are already saying that 2015 will mark the beginning of a trend away from increasingly more sophisticated technologies and have even gone so far as to call it the beginning of the return of the Luddite. They view it as a turning point in technology where people will walk away from high tech […]

Tech Talk: Fujitsu ScanSnap ix100 Mobile Scanner – it’s darn near perfect!

December 26, 2014

I use a scanner a lot more than I ever thought I would have when I first retired. It’s almost as if I’ve gone out and looked for uses for a scanner, but the fact is that there are a lot of uses for a scanner in a home environment without having to go looking […]

Tech Talk: Narrative Clip offers a “new kind of photographic memory”

December 19, 2014

This is one of the coolest little gadgets I’ve come across in quite a while, and I’m still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of it. The Narrative Clip is billed as the world’s smallest automatic camera – it’s 36mm W x 36mmD x 9mmH and weighs in at a hefty 20 […]

Tech Talk: Cambridge Audio’s Go v2 Bluetooth Speaker Review

December 12, 2014

It’s amazing to me how many Bluetooth speakers there are on the market now. They range in size from a speaker you can stick in your shirt pocket to a big one that requires a ton of desk space. Quality of sound covers the full range along with price, so I guess the question a […]

Tech Talk: Check out Sky Link for self-monitored home security

December 5, 2014

I’ve had a home security system that I’ve been paying monthly fees on for nearly twenty years. We had some break-ins in our neighbourhood but thankfully never at our place – whether it’s because of the signs and security system I don’t know and frankly I don’t care. The big thing is no break-ins at […]

Tech Talk: Seagate Backup Plus Slim – 2TB in your pocket

November 28, 2014

Backing up stuff has, for me become something I’m pretty much paranoid about. Even though I have thirty years experience in using computers and all the gear associated with them, I’ve still been dumb enough on several occasions to not have backups of files and I’ve lost them. I must be some kind of serious […]

Connected Data’s File Transporter solves any kind of problems you may have with using Cloud services such as Dropbox – or any others like that, by letting you set up your own private cloud. You have control of the hardware and the access to it, and you even have control over the size of the […]

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 […]
