Over the past few months I have written a few articles about the HP Stream 7 (Stream-lining-A review of my new companion device, A Tale of Two Tablets). So when I got this e-mail today from eBay I thought I would share it with you… in case you are interested in a 7” tablet that … Continue reading Deal on the Stream 7!
I like my Surface Pro 3. Despite a couple of hiccoughs before the drivers were stable I have always liked it. It is a wonderful computer for what I use it for… and frankly, for a lot of things I don’t use it for. So when I started commuting to a new office in Toronto … Continue reading A Tale of Two Tablets…
We love the device... the only complaint we have is that the battery doesn't last very long. That quote is from Theresa, and the device she is referring to is her new HP Stream 7 that I picked up for her and our younger son (see article). I was surprised, because the promotional material for the Stream … Continue reading
I have always had a deal with the companies that have supported me over the years: If you give me a product to test and I like it, I will write about it.

There is really only … Continue reading Surface Pro 3: Two weeks later
I have already bragged about the Surface Pro 2, and I still love it and that has not changed. It took a lot for it to supplant my Lenovo X1 Carbon as my primary device (my original Surface Pro was always simply a companion device). The device rocks, simply put. One thing that I don't … Continue reading Battery Up: Windows 8.1 on the Surface Pro 2
James Kendrick writes for ZDNet, and has been a tablet-fanatic for years. So when I read his article lauding Windows 8 on the right hardware platform I was happy… I happen to like my Surface Pro, but it took the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 for James to truly see the value of Windows 8 on … Continue reading A Thumbs-Up for Windows 8
So as you know I was all excited to buy the very first Microsoft Surface Pro. I bought the 128 GB model because I knew that despite the fact that I have all sorts of external hard drives I was even likely to ax out 128 GB pretty quick. Fortunately between Cloud-based storage (SkyDrive for … Continue reading Converting an SD Card to Permanent Storage in Windows Devices
I travel heavy. When going through airport security it is not uncommon for me to pull three or four laptops out of two laptop bags. In addition to that I will have external hard drives, a plethora of cables, and all sorts of other junk. It has resulted in very strong – albeit often aching … Continue reading How Surface changed my thinking… and helped my shoulder
