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: 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 […]

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: 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 […]
