BlackBerry Priv Review

BlackBerry Priv

It’s no secret that I used to be a huge BlackBerry fan.  My first post on this site was about the Waterloo-based company, and at my university graduation, my classmates awarded me the “Most Likely to be the Last BlackBerry User on Earth” award.  For real.  But shortly after that, I was tempted by the apps and hardware of Android, and jumped ship.  It’s been two years since, and with the release of the BlackBerry Priv, the best of BlackBerry is now on Android.  So does it do the job?

Leaky Pipe? Try the D-Link Water Sensor

D-Link Water Sensor

This $100 box fixes all of that.  And while there are a lot of options for digital media boxes, I think the Roku 3 is one of the best. Continue reading


Sonos Trueplay and Play:5 Hands-On

If you’re looking to get into the wireless music game, there’s a ton of choice. But when it comes down to it, there’s really only one smart choice, and that’s Sonos. To be honest, I’ve never owned a wireless speaker before, but I’ve used a bunch at friends’ houses, and experienced both good and bad. With some, the audio cuts out. Others, the sound is quiet. The only speakers I’ve ever had a good experience with are Sonos, and that’s why I’m really excited about their news this week. Continue reading
