FEATURE: Living With Alexa

It recently dawned on me that, in working from home, there's one "person" I tend to talk to the most. She isn't actually a person, though her comforting voice is that of a woman in her 30s or 40s. She isn't a physical presence either. But she has become a daily part of my life. I live with Alexa.

Commentary: A Take on the Audioquest NightOwl Headphones

Commentary: A Take on the Audioquest NightOwl Headphones

A little over a year ago, I crowned Audioquest's semi-open-back NightHawks the most comfortable pair of headphones EVER. In a way, they have returned as champions for 2017. Only, this pair is called the NightOwl and they are quite a bit different in every way but shape and comfort.

I bought a YesGo case for my iPhone 7, based on an Amazon.ca main page suggestion, for $55. I bought it, quite honestly, as a stopgap solution until I could find a more permanent case.

Hands-on Review: Pioneer Elite SX-S30 2-Channel UHD Receiver

Hands-on Review: Pioneer Elite SX-S30 2-Channel UHD Receiver

For the longest time, I haven't been happy with my TV's sound. Who is anyway? There are several options to get around this. You could get a soundbar/soundbase, which I have in my bedroom. But this can often mean a compromise in sound quality for music listening (though it's more than acceptable for movie watching). Plus, I still need to connect my turntable, run my music from a USB key, and listen to Australia's Boom Radio from TuneIn.
