Polaroid Zip Portable Printer: What a Wonderful Gadget!

At CES 2017, I was invited by Polaroid to "experience" the company's instant photo product line, which includes three digital cameras with built-in photo printer and a pocket-sized photo printer. All share the same printing technology, which uses ZINK (Zero-INK) photo paper.

DBZdress Extended Battery iPhone Case - Perhaps The Slimmest and Smartest of Them All

DBZdress Extended Battery iPhone Case - Perhaps The Slimmest and Smartest of Them All

Remember when mobile phones were marketed based on their battery life? That was more than a decade ago. Now, the marketing is based on how thin they are. That's foolish, I feel, as we are becoming more and more dependent on our phones, yet, in some cases, the battery life gets shorter by each generation.

What is HDMI 2.1 and How It Will Affect You?

What is HDMI 2.1 and How It Will Affect You?

Not too long ago, HDMI released HDMI 2.0a, which supports only "static metadata" for its High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature. This means that when you are watching a UHD movie with HDR data, it uses one overall HDR grading for the entire movie. With HDMI 2.1, the HDR data, or "metadata," to be exact, can be dynamic.

Top 6 Products From CES Unveiled

It's that time of the year again! Once again I spent about 3.5 hours at CES Unveiled, which showcased more than 100 items. Some were nothing more than a vapourware, and too many of them were downright silly. There were, however, some ingenious and fun products that caught my attention. The following are my top-six pick from the pre-CES event.

I'm Going to CES! What to Bring?

I'm Going to CES! What to Bring?

I've been going to CES now for more than a decade. This year, the trip is no different except for one thing. I've been inundated with e-mails from many CES first-timers asking what should they bring with them. From many years of CES trips (not to mention CEDIA, and other trips), I always take with me the same essentials.

Exclusive! First Canadian Hands-on Review of the Oppo UDP-203 Blu-ray Player

Exclusive! First Canadian Hands-on Review of the Oppo UDP-203 Blu-ray Player

There's a crowd that is waiting to satiate their hunger for a dream UHD Blu-ray player. Enter Oppo Digital's UDP-203. Jason Liao, CTO of Oppo Digital offered me a unit for review - reportedly the first to make its way to Canada. That's a good sign. In my years of doing reviews, the companies that actively want their products to be reviewed are usually pretty confident in the products' performance. Would this theory hold true with the UDP-203?

Discover True Sound Through Sonos Trueplay

Discover True Sound Through Sonos Trueplay

There's no denying that I love Sonos. I love it for the ease of setup, ease of use, stability and customer support. What I wasn't as enamoured with before, however, was the sound quality. While decent, I could never have used my Play:1 and Playbar + Sub combo beyond Muzak level. To me, beyond background music, the sound quality wasn't good enough for serious listening.

The Case of Home Theatre (Or Lack Thereof)

The Case of Home Theatre (Or Lack Thereof)

As I stood gazing at the smorgasbord of factory-sealed Blu-ray discs that had accumulated in my home theatre after not having entered it in three months, something happened in me. Something that hasn't happened for a while, but that I knew to be inevitable. I just want to watch a movie in an informal way.
