New technology solutions to mirror your computer and mobile device screen to your TV

by Blogger ‎02-24-2015 12:48 PM - edited ‎02-24-2015 01:27 PM


From the small screen to the big screen. It’s the kind of functionality that makes a lot of sense in the home. Why watch a movie on your smartphone when you can beam it over to your much larger TV? Why not do the same with your tablet or computer? There are a number of ways in which to do this, and they’re not only easy to use, they also don’t require much to install or maintain them.




Aftermarket head units have enabled smartphone integration for years, but the experience has been missing something truly integrative. Pioneer has openly adopted Apple’s CarPlay platform meant to seamlessly connect an iPhone with decks that support it, making it easier to use basic functions and apps without having to touch the phone. Pioneer was the first to launch CarPlay when it released a firmware update for a number of its decks in the fall. New ones are coming and they could be your chance to use it in your car.

Slowly but surely, routers have improved greatly to the point where comparing a 2014 model to one released only three years ago can present a significant performance gap. Part of the reason is the quality of the hardware, but the bigger reason is because Wi-Fi continues to get better as a technology. If you’re looking to ramp up your home Internet usage, or need a better way to manage the bandwidth clutter, here are five of the best routers available to you now.

Mac OS X Yosemite: how to get it and what you need

by Blogger ‎10-23-2014 12:54 PM - edited ‎10-23-2014 12:56 PM



Apple released its latest version of Mac OS X, called Yosemite, the second version named after a place in California. It also marks a particular synergy between OS X and iOS — not a merging of the two — but rather an easier way to get them working with one another. It also marks a new look, one that flattens the visuals to fall more in line with the current graphics seen in iOS. There are plenty of new features, and a straightforward upgrade process to get to them.

iOS 8 main.jpg


Now that Apple has released iOS 8 on the eve of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus hitting Future Shop shelves, the new update to the operating system is less the interface coat of paint that iOS 7 was, and more a pack of features that bring it up to speed with what competitors are doing, along with a twist here and there. It’s free to download and is compatible with iPhone 4S (and later), the iPad 2 (and later), both iPad minis and the fifth-generation iPod touch.

Not many student dorms or residences come with cable TV.  After all, you’re there to learn, not to chill out with Robert Downey Jr. But these days a lot of dorms come with WiFi, which means you can get yourself a TV streaming device, and watch TV or movies whenever you want, in the privacy of your (tiny) room. Check out the Top 3 streaming devices available.


Choosing the right Apple MacBook for you

by Blogger on ‎08-13-2014 03:04 PM - last edited on ‎08-13-2014 03:23 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



Look at one of Apple’s MacBooks today and you will see something that looks familiar, yet uniquely different at the same time. The MacBook line has gone through several evolutionary changes over the last eight years, having also gone from three particular designs, down to two: the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Both follow the same design philosophies, though feel distinct at the same time. Based on my years of experience with both, I can tell you why.


Review Comparison Roku 3 vs. Apple TV

by Blogger ‎06-23-2014 07:27 PM - edited ‎06-25-2014 07:51 AM



The Roku 3 and the Apple TV are two of the leading streaming video and content solutions that are designed to plug-and-play into any existing networked TV setup. Provided there’s a nearby Ethernet or WiFi connection, these two tiny set-top boxes will open a world of TV, movies, music and streaming content either from their respective content libraries or through third-party services like Netflix and many others.  While very similar in general appearance and functionality, the approach taken by Roku and Apple in this space today is like night and day.


How to create your own free ringtones with iTunes

by Blogger on ‎06-01-2014 12:04 PM - last edited on ‎06-02-2014 04:11 PM by Blog Editor in Chief

iTunes logo.jpgRingtones aren’t new, but they’re easy to distinguish anytime you hear them. That catchy hook or cool opening part of a song can be the best way to move away from the standard ringtones available on the iPhone and give your contacts some personality. You can do this pretty easily by creating your own ringtones for free using the music you already have. All you need is a Windows PC or Mac, plus iTunes and your iPhone, and you’re ready to make it happen.
