I’m a long-time electronics and gadget geek who’s been fortunate enough to enjoy a career that lets me indulge this interest. After 13 years as a product manager with a leading Canadian tech company, I transitioned into a full-time career of writing about technology. I’ve contributed to a range of publications and websites including Forbes, Wired, Gizmodo, Lifehacker,, MSN Money, the Winnipeg Free Press, InvestorPlace Media, Shaw Media and—combining technology and my three kids—I’ve been a Core Contributor to the award winning GeekDad blog since its launch in 2007.

We all buy laptops based on different criteria, but battery life is often a big one. If you’re in search of a laptop that will go all day without plugging in to an electrical outlet, I’ve put together a list of four battery life champs.

2-in-1 computers like the Surface Pro target people who want a tablet and a laptop in a single, ultra-compact device. But can a 2-in-1 tablet PC really replace a laptop? Absolutely! With one caveat ... I’ll explain how and the one catch if you decide to replace your laptop with something like a Surface Pro.

This year’s edition of the Consumer Electronics Show is underway. One of the themes this year is better Wi-Fi. D-Link introduced two new whole home solutions that will interest anyone in search of an easy, reliable and fast wireless boost for their entire home.

Looking for a cost-effective, capable and easy to set up home computer solution? Check out the ASUS M32BF desktop PC. I put one through its paces to show that this could be a great solution to the new family computer puzzle.

Best Buy may be packed with the latest technology, gear and accessories from your favourite brands. But did you know it’s also the place to find some of the most innovative products launched on Kickstarter?

With another new year upon us, many people have decided it’s time for a new computer. But with hundreds of choices, how do you pick the right one. Here are some ideas on picking the right computer for the new year.
