When Pioneer decided to exit the plasma market I felt hurt; the creator of some of the best TV technology available (Kuro black levels) was abandoning what I considered to be the best display tech available. When Panasonic admitted that they, too, were exiting the plasma market, I felt betrayed. It was time to take action. Big action.

 

For me, it was time to move to a projector. Projectors have always been a viable technology for your home theatre, but never more so than now, with big screens and powerful hardware available to make your multiplex-at-home experience possible. It can be a tough category to figure out at first glance, so we're going to walk you through what you need to know today.

LG has quietly made a statement in the past 12 months that it is serious about making some of the best smartphones money can buy. The G3 takes a few solid steps in the right direction, making the case that sometimes less is more and design is an important detail not to be overlooked. It’s prettier than its predecessor and manages to outperform it in ways that it should, making this one of the more interesting and compelling handsets to come out so far this year.

Laptops for Back to School as chosen by you, the consumers

by Blogger on ‎07-30-2014 08:36 PM - last edited on ‎07-31-2014 03:36 PM by Blog Editor in Chief

Finding a good laptop requires research and maybe even a little sleuthing, but what might be ideal for someone else may not be the best fit for what you need. The bevy of choices doesn’t simplify the process all that much, so narrowing things down does help make a more concerted effort to spend money on something that is ultimately an investment.

 

In the previous post, I ran through some laptops that I thought would be good starting points for students, breaking them down into various categories. Of course, that was my opinion to the best of my knowledge. You, the readers and customers, have made your opinions known through feedback provided on the site.

I spent the weekend on a river trip in a remote area without cell service. While I enjoyed the peace, it did remind me how much I not only appreciate, but expect the convenience of my smart phone. For business owners, it is even more important that they have the ability to access their data wherever they are when they need it. Both Express Invoice and Express Accounts give you the ability to access your business information from any device with an internet connection.
