HP Sprocket Review

Nowadays, more people are using their smartphones to take all their photos. Partly because it is super easy to capture photos and videos with and it’s always within arm’s reach. In the past few years, there has also been a rise in film photography, more specifically Polaroid photos (you know, the camera that allows you to print your photos instantly).

Three things Canadian retailers must do before launching “smart stores”

This post was contributed by, Mary Ann Yule, president of HP Canada. 

Odd as it may seem, Amazon, the bellwether of online shopping, is marketing actual stores. The retail giant is testing a smart convenience store concept in Seattle that lets shoppers grab-and-go without dealing with cashiers or money.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2017) Review

HP OMEN 17 Review

Gaming laptops have become more and more popular these days, because they allow you to play games on the go. Some of the big names in gaming laptops that you’ve probably heard of are by Razer and Alienware (which is by Dell) but I bet you wouldn’t have guessed that HP is making gaming machines as well.

HP’s OMEN lineup is specifically tailored for gamers and I haven’t used a lot of gaming laptops but I’m liking where HP is going with the Omen 17 laptop I tested out.

I’ve been using the HP OMEN Laptop PC – 17-w018ca (W8X26UA) for a few weeks now and I wouldn’t call it the absolute best laptop out there but it is definitely great for gaming.
