Techies, Android-lovers, and Googlephiles across Canada cursed in unison earlier this week; Chromecast wasn’t coming to Canada. If you’re not in the above groups or you’re just a little behind on your tech news here’s a quick primer on what the heck Chromecast is… and why you shouldn’t care at all. Read the rest of […]

I received a text message from a friend earlier today in a panic; an old hard drive that he used for storage isn’t responding when plugged in, and it’s the drive that he uses for all of his photography backup needs. Here’s how to a) trouble-shoot a dead drive and b) how to back up […]

  It’s no secret that I love hardy little video cameras. The GoPro Hero, the Contour, the Sony ActionCam and the JVC ADIXXION are all models that can take a punch… and they’re all evolving. So far this month we’ve seen the new GoPro Hero 3, and today we’re taking a look at the Contour […]

I love Fuji’s X-series; they’re incredibly powerful cameras with a gorgeous retro aesthetic. And unlike the big two and all the other also-rans, Fuji’s actually doing something different in the mid-to-high-end space.

Thinking back nearly a decade I can remember my first digital camera: a Canon Digital ELPH S100. It was the first mass-market digital camera that really took off, and at the time it felt like it had it all: compact size, a 2x optical zoom, took Compact Flash cards (vastly superior to “Smart” media cards… […]

There is at this time, in my mind, one vacuum manufacturer to rule them all: I’ve owned competing brands (they found their way to Craigslist eventually) in both upright and handheld. I put up with the borderline horrendous suction of a central vac for years. I put up with dust and dirt that just didn’t […]

Turtle Beach hits the shelves this week with another offering in their line of wireless specialty gaming headphones with the EarForce PX5. As an existing EarForce customer (I own the X41) I was excited to get my hands on this revamped model.   As an owner of both an Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 […]
