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: Motrr Galileo – lots of fun in a small package

July 19, 2014

I have to admit that when the Rep firm for Motrr approached me and offered to send me a Motrr Galileo I was intrigued, but not really all that excited. About the size of a coffee cup, the Motrr Galileo is a motorized self-turning dock you can stick your iPhone 4 and higher and the […]

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: Logitech’s new case+ an interesting concept that shows lots of promise

May 30, 2014

When Logitech announced their case+ suite of mobile accessories designed specifically for the iPhone 5 and 5s, I was intrigued. Case + isn’t a case for your iPhone plus some accessories, it’s a system that’s designed with practical, everyday uses in mind.  While it may not hit a home run on each separate part, as […]

Tech Talk: New iPhone 5s – WOW

November 10, 2013

Over the thirty years I’ve been working with and reviewing technology, there are a lot of products that I’ve written about that were like pulling teeth to put together something on. Fortunately, and this is what makes writing about and testing new products fun; there are also many products that pretty well write their own […]

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: 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: 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 […]
