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 […]

Tech Talk: Office for the iPad; is it worth the price?

April 11, 2014

  OK, so maybe the headline’s a bit off the mark because, as everyone knows, Office for iPad is FREE from the iTunes App Store. But is it really? Not exactly; you have to have a subscription to Office 365 in order to do anything other than open and read documents in Word, Excel or […]

Tech Talk: First the iPad Air, now the iPad mini

December 7, 2013

When I first got an iPad mini to test out last year I thought it might be a nice size but that I’d probably continue to use a full-sized iPad for most things and the mini for some others like E-mail or maybe reading. I was totally wrong – I find that I use an […]

Tech Talk: Apple’s new iPad Air is a beaut!

November 29, 2013

I’ve been using the new iPad Air for a couple of weeks now and to say that this is the best of all the iPads Apple has produced is both obvious and an understatement. The first thing you notice is that it’s more svelte than its predecessor, at 240mm H compared to 241.2mm, 169.5mm W […]

Tech Talk: Have power, will travel

September 27, 2013

  I travel a fair bit and am a heavy smartphone user, so I’m always looking for a leg up in terms of portable battery capacity, and when I saw Sanho’s new HyperJuice 2, I was excited. Maybe here was the perfect device to pack in my travel bag that would take care of all my […]

Tech Talk: Logitech Broadcaster Wi-Fi Webcam – a mini studio in your pocket

April 12, 2013

  I’ve used Macs for years – actually since they started making the computers; and over that period of time I’ve gone from using various types of webcams to the built-in camera on notebooks. Now I’ve come full circle with my desktop computer. The computer I use as a desktop is currently a Mac Mini, […]

Tech talk: Netatmo Urban Weather Station – for when you want more than a guess.

April 5, 2013

I’ve been testing out the new Netatmo Urban Weather Station for a while now, and, it’d be a lot more fun to use if it’d stop snowing where I live. I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – and it’s snowing again today. It actually seems to snow every day here! I asked for the weather station […]

Tech Talk: Logitech’s Ultrathin iPad Keyboard Cover makes the perfect iPad more perfect

January 18, 2013

The Logitech Ultrathin iPad Keyboard Cover is the latest accessory for iPad I’ve been testing out. I’ve tried several different types of keyboards designed to work with iPads, but they always involved having to carry the keyboard separately. This Ultrathin iPad Keyboard Cover solves that particular problemby clipping onto the iPad with a magnetic clip […]

Tech Talk: Hands-on with the iPad Mini

November 9, 2012

I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked about the new iPad Mini since it was first announced a little while ago. It’s also amazing to me how the announcement of the iPad Mini has eclipsed that of significant upgrades to the iPad itself. As soon as I got my hands on an […]

Tech Talk: iHome iW3 wireless AirPlay speaker sounds great

October 5, 2012

Apple’s AirPlay wireless technology has been around for a while now, and, although I don’t use it every day, I do use it quite often to run content from my iPad or iPhone through Apple TV and onto my big screen TV. The first purely AirPlay connected speaker I’ve tested is iHome’s under $200 CAD […]
