While the focus seems to be on how smart phone cameras will replace point and shoot models, it never ceases to amaze me how many more features and how much power and precision is being incorporated into portable point and shoot cameras. While some of the advanced models are not necessarily small, you can still fit them into your pocket.

There doesn’t seem to be a shortage of phone lines in my household but truth being told, with Skype, Facetime and my iPhone readily available, I hardly use them. While I’m not sure I’m ready to totally cut out the cord, it would be nice to find a way to cut down some of those monthly expenses.

Being accustomed to using an iPad, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to leave the iPad at home and take along the iPad mini. I wanted to see if it would live up to my expectations and the claim by “Sir” Jonathan Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of Industrial Design, that the iPad Mini is a “concentration and not a reduction of the original”.

I had been putting off reviewing D-Link’s Wireless N300 Range Extender (DAP-1320) because I wasn’t sure what to say about it. The product allows you to share your Wireless N Internet signal across your entire home so you can easily jump online even in difficult areas, such as the basement, attic and the like. And it delivers a connection speed of up to 300 Mbps.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember there are more choices in smartphone operating systems than just iOS (which is installed on Apple’s iPhone) and Android. But if you’re looking for a more PC-like interface, you might want to check out a Windows phone. Up until recently, your best bet was Nokia’s Lumia line. But with the release of Windows Phone 8, that has changed. So if you’re not too keen on banking on a company, which financially speaking, is the Finnish equivalent of RIM, you might want to check out what HTC has to offer.
