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, About.com, 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.

Decided to move to a professional quality tablet, perhaps as a laptop replacement? The big question facing many people considering making this move is a tough one: Surface Pro or iPad Pro? Picking the wrong one can be a frustrating (and expensive) mistake. In this post, I’ll try to help you make the right choice.

One of the big stories from this year’s Consumer Electronics Show was the official launch of Intel’s full line-up of 7th generation “Kaby Lake” computer processors. Read on to learn the scoop about what the new CPUs will mean for laptops and computers hitting shelves in 2017.

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?

What’s the coolest tech gift this holiday season? It all depends on who’s actually receiving the gift, but if that person is a PC gamer, there’s no doubt about it. A powerful gaming laptop is the coolest tech gift imaginable...

How would you define a “cool” tech gift? There are many ways, but by most definitions—including unlocking all new capabilities and breathing new life into a favourite device—a new component for your desktop computer definitely makes the cool gift list.

There is an assumption made by many people that with modern operating systems like macOS and Windows 10, the need for security software goes out the window. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. The cyber bad guys have upped their game. But installing security software can take the worry out of using your computer.
