Tech Talk: UE MEGABOOM puts the mega in Bluetooth speaker sound

February 20, 2015

I tested out UE’s Boom speaker when it first came out and was impressed with the value you get. It’s a terrific speaker at a reasonable price that had a small footprint. Well, UE has upped the ante this year with their UE MEGABOOM. It’s bigger, has better Bluetooth range and is IPX7-rated – it’s […]

Tech Talk: Check out Grovemade’s beautiful walnut iPhone cases

February 13, 2015

When I first saw the Grovemade cases for iPhones I have to confess that I thought they were kind of cool, too expensive and they would be bulky and would probably break down under daily wear and tear. As Roberto De Vincenzo said “What a stupid I am to be wrong here”! De Vincenzo lost […]

Tech Talk: Bring those old speakers into the 21st century with Griffin Twenty

February 6, 2015

The Griffin Twenty was one of my favourite devices when it came out in 2012, and the newest iteration takes the device to the next level in terms of ease of use and increased functionality. The Twenty is a digital amplifier that, as the name suggests, puts out 20 watts per channel. What makes the […]

Tech Talk: Save yourself with ESET Cyber Security Pro

January 30, 2015

Back in ‘The Day’ Mac owners used to laugh at PC owners with all their little viruses and malware they had to deal with. There were no viruses for the Mac platform for a long time, but, like all good things, that has definitely come to an end. You’re simply not safe online any more […]

Tech Talk: Bose SoundLink Colour Bluetooth Speaker – a bargain at $139.99

January 23, 2015

It’s kind of a funny thing when it comes to reviewing Bose products of any kind. They simply don’t put their name on anything that isn’t of a real high quality, so when I first saw the Bose SoundLink Colour Bluetooth Speaker listed at a suggested retail of $139.99 CAD I was a bit worried. […]

Tech Talk: Got an iPad Air? Check out these two new keyboards/covers

January 16, 2015

So you got a spanky new iPad for Christmas – lucky you! But now you think that it’d be a good thing to have a keyboard other than the one on the iPad screen. The screen version works perfectly well, but if you’re like me, you need a bit of resistance and “feel” to use […]

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 […]
