It was thought that the smartphone made wearing a watch almost obsolete, and yet, it may be the smartphone that changes what a watch ultimately is. While it’s still the early days of smartwatch development, they are still intriguing wearable devices that should uniquely meld fashion and function together. The jury’s still out on where the fashion side of things will end up, but as far as function goes, Motorola has crafted a solid entry with their Moto 360, perhaps the best Android smartwatch available right now.

Review: Metro Redux, back to the Moscow underground.

 Metro Redux Title.jpg


Now post apocalyptic settings have been commonplace in video games for quite some time now. Many of us, have ventured the wastelands in the Fallout series. I myself have easily spent over 200 hundred hours there throughout all the games in the franchise. Games like Darksiders take a much more fantastical approach, with all the burnt out cars and destroyed building still present, giving us the feel and look of Earth after the apocalypse. Many more games have done this idea in numerous ways, Half-Life 2, STALKER, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy, The Walking Dead, LEFT4DEAD and the list goes on. Out of all these numerous titles one game series has always stood out to me, with it’s unmatched narrative and a setting which one could deem quite possible, simply called Metro and with Metro Redux, its time to go back to the Moscow underground.

Microwaves 101: the Wonderful World of Microwaves and how to Choose Yours!

I was surprised to learn that it's been almost 60 years since the first microwave ovens were produced. Back in the '80s in small town Nova Scotia, it was kind of a big deal to acquire a microwave, and a good many people weren't lucky enough to have one at all. For those that did, however, the device was generally big, heavy, and entirely lacking in special features. Today's microwaves are far more advanced than those clunky machines of the '80s, and a lot more difficult to pick out too. So today I'm posting a microwave oven buyer's guide of sorts with a number of useful tips for buying your next microwave.
