Nintendo Switch Review

Nintendo has been around for a long time (over 127 years old) but it wasn’t until the early ‘80s, when they started to get into video games, specifically consoles.

Since then, we’ve had the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), then the Super NES, the Nintendo 64, the GameCube, the Wii, the Wii U and now we have the Nintendo Switch.

Each of Nintendo’s console offers something unique and with the Switch, Nintendo is blending the lines between home and portable console. Nintendo is in a league of their own, they’re not necessarily concerned with amazing graphics, they’re more focused on how people play games and making sure people are having fun using their systems.

In my time using the Nintendo Switch, I enjoyed using it with a few minor annoyances, which I’ll get back to.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2017) Review

When buying a new computer these days, there are a lot to choose from. Do you want a traditional clamshell laptop or would you rather have one that can fold over and has a touchscreen and can be used as a tablet. HP seems to realize this and they’re putting out more 2-in-1 versions of their laptops.

I’ve been using the HP Spectre x360 13 for the past few weeks and it’s easily become one of my favourite 2-in-1 laptops that I’ve tested, even beating the likes of the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

GoPro HERO5 Black Review: GoPro’s best camera yet

GoPro has been making action cameras for a long time and they’ve become the go-to brand when it comes to action cameras. Each new Hero camera has brought new features and innovation and the HERO5 Black is no exception.

I’ve been using the HERO5 Black for a few weeks along with the Karma Grip stabilizer and I would say that this is easily GoPro’s best camera yet.

Editor’s note: Even though I did use the HERO5 Black with the Karma Grip, I won’t be talking about it as much in this review, this review will mostly focus on the HERO5 Black.

iPad Pro 12.9 Review

When Steve Jobs first introduced the iPad back in 2010, it started the tablet revolution. Soon after the first iPad released, every one of Apple’s competitors from Samsung & Motorola to HP and Lenovo released their own “iPad killer” but none of them have come close to real thing.

I mean, Samsung has tried with their Galaxy Tab S lineup but it still has some compromises. Then when Apple introduced the iPad Pro (12.9-inch) back in 2015, Apple was trying to revolutionize the tech industry but not in the same way that they did with the original iPad, they were trying get people to use tablets as their main computer or as a laptop replacement.

Roku Express Review

When it comes to streaming players, one of the biggest would hands-down be Roku. They’ve been in the game for a while now and have since become synonymous in the world of set-top boxes, in the same way that Apple has with smartphone with their iPhone.

Back in the fall, Roku refreshed their entire lineup of boxes and gotten rid of their numbering system. And instead gave each line a specific name and certain features.

I’ve been testing out the Roku Express and I would say it’s one of the best bang for your buck.
