David's Take: CoBattery Powered Phone Case - The Best Powered Phone Case I've Ever Used

David's Take: CoBattery Powered Phone Case - The Best Powered Phone Case I've Ever Used

I love using my iPhone for work. Virtually everything, including writing articles, can be done using my iPhone. The downside of that is that by 2 p.m., my battery level is usually already down to about 30%. I've tried lots of charging options, including tethering my phone to a charger in the office or car, power cases, and portable battery packs.

David's Take: The Cinema Designer

Having a tool with the ability to create cinema designs to industry standards and the latest formats, and have technically accurate drawings that can be dropped into CAD, is incredibly useful.

‎David's Take: Skross Buzz Alarm Cables

‎David's Take: Skross Buzz Alarm Cables

For people who travel a lot like me, always having the appropriate chargers for various mobile devices is crucial. Foolishly, after overnight charging, I have, on occasion, forgotten my chargers either back home, in the hotel room, or even at the airport, resulting in the need to buy expensive replacements.

David's Take: Streaming, Bad; Physical Media, Good!

David's Take: Streaming, Bad; Physical Media, Good!

Streaming seems to be a magic word lately. It's convenient, and we are promised by the studios that streaming video has the capability to deliver HD and UHD quality. But in my opinion, it's all a big marketing gimmick because UHD is not only about 4K resolution, but also 10-bit video, Wide Colour Gamut and High Dynamic Range. UHD streaming only provides the 4K pixel count.

David's Take: Color Your Sound Sonos Covers - Colour Me Impressed!

Everybody knows I use Sonos quite extensively in my house. The ease-of-use coupled with very good sound quality has made me a fan of their products. However, they don't quite meet my needs for unique design that stands out. Not to mention that the Playbar's speaker grille is a dust magnet.

Hands-on Review: Sony UBP-X800 Universal Disc Player

After nearly a year of rumours, a CEDIA sneak peak and a CES mock-up, Sony Canada finally released its highly-anticipated UBP-X800 universal disc player which is, as the name implies, truly universal. So I was excited to take it for a spin.

David's Take: Everything You Need To Know About THX - Part 1 of 2

The THX system is not a recording technology and it does not specify a sound recording format: all sound formats, whether digital (Dolby Digital, SDDS) or analog (Dolby Stereo, Ultra-Stereo), can be "shown in THX." THX is mainly a quality assurance system.
