Apple Watch – Series 3

This review will be split into two parts. Part 1 will focus on the Series 3 watch hardware changes, while part 2 will focus on the new LTE capabilities of the Apple Watch Series 3. Because Rogers in Canada is not offering LTE service for the Apple Watch yet, I’m unable to comment on this just yet – but I will update this review at a later date once I have LTE service enabled. Part 1 LTE...

iPhone 8 Plus

While slightly overshadowed by the impending launch of the iPhone X, the iPhone 8/8 Plus is still an absolutely phenomenal device. And aside from a familiar looking form factor, it packs a ton of new features under the hood – including an updated processor, better cameras, Qi wireless (contact) charging, True Tone display, Apple designed hardware image signal processor, portrait lighting...

AirPods

I’ve been using my AirPods for about 3 months now and my overall impression of them is positive. In this review I’ll cover the pros and cons of this revolutionary new product by Apple. Price The first thing I’d like to address is the price. Many people think that they are overpriced, however when you consider how much technology goes into these earbuds, you will likely change...

Things

  In my opinion, Things by Cultured Code is the absolute best task manager available. I have been using Things since 2009, and I rely on it heavily every single day. For those of you who don’t yet use an advanced task manager, I strongly recommend getting started with Things. Why use a task manager? We all have things that need to get done. And if we don’t manage these things...

iPhone 7

The all new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were released on September 16th, 2016. While the basic shape and design of the phone hasn’t changed dramatically, there are a ton of great new features and improvements. Below I’ll give my thoughts on the major changes this year. Camera Systems: The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus both received significant enhancements to their cameras this year. Both have been...

iPhone 6S

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were released on September 25th, 2015 with a ton of under-the-hood upgrades. Apple’s slogan for the phones this year is “The only thing that’s changed, is everything”, and I’ll explain below why this is very true. I’ll breakdown the new features and how well they translate to real-life usage. 3D Touch: This is one of those things that...

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...
