Apple Watch

The Apple Watch debuted to the public on April 24th, 2015 (10 days ago at the time I started writing this). I was one of the fortunate ones to get my hands on one on the first day, and after 10 days of using the watch daily, I have to say that I am very impressed with it. I decided to go with the 42mm Apple Watch with the Milanese loop band. While it’s extremely comfortable, I am looking...

Apple iPhone 6

The iPhone 6 & 6S are among us, and they are absolutely beautiful. I have been using the Nexus 5 for the past year as a filler device because I wasn’t too stoked about iOS 7 or the iPhone 5S – it kinda felt as though Apple had lost its way – so I thought it was the perfect year to try something new. I don’t regret trying Android for a year, but I am beyond happy to be...

Tenba DNA 15 Messenger Bag

After going through a couple of purchase/return cycles with messenger bags from Chrome Industries & Timbuk2, I finally settled on a great bag which fulfils most of my needs at this time – the Tenba DNA 15. I have had this bag for about 3 months now, and so far it has been great. There are definitely a few caveats which I will explain below, but overall this is a great bag. Build...

Pebble Watch

Pebble Watch

I owned the Pebble Smart Watch – the great Kickstarter sensation of 2012 – for about 6 months before I sold it on eBay. I always like to try out new technologies, and this was no exception. I was thrilled when it was released and was excited to get my hands on it. I didn’t in fact back the original Kickstarter campaign, but I did pre-order one when they opened pre-orders in...

Embassy Elite Pen – REV 2

I have a thing for well built products. So when I decided that I needed a new pen, I began looking high and low for the best option. I wanted a pen that would be durable, reliable, and have more functionality than just a regular pen. Enter the Stainless Steel Embassy Elite Pen (REV 2). As the name describes, it is made of pure 301 grade stainless steel, making it a pen that will easily last a...

Waterfield Cargo Laptop Bag

I’ve owned the Waterfield (sfbags.com) Cargo Laptop Bag (Medium) for about 8 months now, and feel that I can give quite a comprehensive review on it. Overall my impressions have been favourable, but I don’t think I’ve found my perfect laptop bag just yet. I will break this review down into the following categories: build quality, design, and everyday usage. Build Quality: When...

iOS Multitasking / Force Quit Fallacy

Ever since Apple introduced multi-tasking on their iOS devices, there has been an enormous amount of confusion among users of these devices as to how it actually works. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard people say that they are going through their apps and closing them to save battery, speed the phone up, etc. I’ve even heard Apple employees tell this to customers who come in...

Review: Apple EarPods

I picked up a pair of the newly released Apple EarPods yesterday, and thought I would write up a quick review on them. They are the same price ($35.00 CDN) as their previous generation earbuds, except they now come with a travel/storage case which I think is a nice addition – I’ll touch on this towards the bottom of the review.

Apple iPhone 5

Another year has passed, and here we are with a brand new shiny iPhone. The iPhone 5 was announced today (September 12, 2012) at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Overall I am very pleased with the announcement today. I think it falls somewhere between an evolutionary update (iPhone 4 to iPhone 4S, and a revolutionary update (iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4). Items that were a PLUS...

Review: VMware Fusion

Just wanted to do a quick review of VMware Fusion. I’ve been using it on my 2011 MacBook Air for about 4 months now so that I can use QuickBooks Pro (Windows only) and I think it is phenomenal. If you have any reason to run Windows on your mac, this is the virtualization software I would recommend hands down. Some of my favourite features include native full screen support in Lion, ability...
