Logitech/UE Mini Boom: Stereo sound on the go

October 4, 2013

When I travel I like to take along a small Bluetooth speaker so when I have some down time in a hotel room I can listen to music, audiobooks – or watch a movie on my iPad. I also like to listen to music while I write, so a nice little pair of speakers in […]

Tech Talk: Apple’s new Airport Extreme router and Time Capsule are winners

September 7, 2013

I recently replaced my aging Apple Airport  Extreme with one of the newer 802.11 a/c versions and put a new Time Capsue in place of my old, non-working Time Capsule. I was in luck enough to get one of the Time Capsules that were recalled a few years ago because they didn’t work. My replacement […]

Tech Talk: HP’s OfficeJet Pro X576dw offers small business great performance with low costs

August 16, 2013

I don’t often test out printers that are larger than the typical desktop printer you’d stick on the end of your desk at home or in your office, so HPs OfficeJet Pro X576dw marks a departure for me. The HP OfficeJet Pro X576dw is a printer much more appropriate for a small office or a […]

Tech Talk: Logitech UE Boom doubles the fun for Bluetooth speakers

August 5, 2013

  We’re supposedly in the dog days of summer now – you know, when it’s so hot the grass crinkles underfoot, the beautiful green of spring is replaced with a tired looking green, and people just want to be on the beach. Where that’s happening in Canada I don’t know, certainly not where I live. […]

Tech Talk: Harmony Ultimate: the BEST remote on the market

July 6, 2013

My favourite universal remote, and one I’ve used for a few years now, is the Logitech Harmony 900. I like the 900 because it uses RF (Radio Frequency) in concert with Infrared to control all the devices I have connected. Logitech’s brand new Harmony Ultimate with Harmony Ultimate Hub takes that great remote with RF […]

Tech Talk: Use your smartphone a lot? Get a Mophie juice pack!

June 7, 2013

When I wrote about the new Mophie juice pack Helium a couple of months ago I was impressed with the battery life it added to my iPhone. Since then, the folks at Mophie have come out with two new iPhone compatible devices the juice pack Air and the juice pack Plus. All the juice packs […]

Tech Talk: Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 Smartphone is a beaut!

June 1, 2013

  Let’s get this out of the way right up front. I use an iPhone 5 presently and I’ve used iPhones since the first version, so I’m not likely to ever want to change that. So why, you might ask, do I feel that I need to review a Samsung Galaxy S4? Simply put, the […]

Tech talk: HP OfficeJet 150 Mobile All-in-One could be a road warrior’s best friend

May 24, 2013

I can’t count the number of times I’ve been on the road covering an event or something and I wished I could print something out. Whether it’s a copy of a story, an invoice or bill – whatever; I’ve wished I had a really portable printer I could use. Hewlett Packard’s OfficeJet 150 Mobile All-in-one […]

TECH TALK: Cut the wires and experience great sound with Logitech UE 9000 Headphones

May 17, 2013

Whenever I travel I take along headphones to listen to music or movies on. Usually I take the in-ear versions because they’re lighter and easier to pack, but if I’m on a longer trip I like to take over ear headphones because for me, they’re usually more comfortable for longer periods of listening time. My […]

TECH TALK: HyperJuice Plug a must for the business traveller

April 26, 2013

I’ve been an iPhone and iPad user for years and like a lot of users who use their smartphones a lot, I usually either run the battery down every day or come very close to it. Ditto with my iPad, so I’ve been trying to find a single solution to keep both of the device […]
