Review: Samsung Galaxy Note Edge

by Blogger ‎02-20-2015 09:29 AM - edited ‎02-22-2015 12:14 PM



It’s patently obvious that smartphone screens continue to creep up in size, and the extra real estate should make it easier to do everything you want to do. Samsung can be credited with having kicked off this current era of larger displays with the original Galaxy Note. The Galaxy Note Edge is less a clone than it is an offshoot of the Note 4, a phone that was probably among the best of 2014. The curved screen on the edge gives it a unique identity and usability, and one that does require a learning curve unto itself.

Distracted driving laws across all the Canadian provinces and territories (except for Nunavut) usually amount to financial penalties when police catch you using your smartphone while behind the wheel. Going hands-free is, of course, a matter of safety, but it should also be one of convenience, which is what Pioneer tries to offer with its audio head units.

The hunt was on in Toronto this week as Xbox Canada hosted the Evolve Launch Party, an event celebrating the release of Turtle Rock Studios and 2K Games new multiplayer shooter. Taking place at the Burroughes Building on Queen Street West, this launch party featured numerous attractions including playable game stations, a "feeding" station, and a training room for those playing Evolve for the very first time. My first stop though was at the green screen photo booth, where as you can see above, I had a blast being the Goliath's next dinner!




There used to be a time when getting a new PC was both an exciting event and a bit of a headache since it meant you had to deal with the growing pains of transitioning from your old PC to your new one. There were many challenges and chores to put up with in the migration. These days that’s not the case at all and if you’ve been taking advantage of modern computing you can make the whole process surprisingly quick, easy, and pain free. I’ve got to use a different new PC just about every week and I’ve managed to streamline the whole process to make it amazingly simple and efficient so that I can be up and running in no time at all with all my familiar data, preferences, and software.
