The new Dyson V8 Absolute cordless vacuum will suck the money out of your wallet as fast as it does dust and dirt.
Is it worth it? Compared to its previous more affordable siblings, as low as $299.99 on www.dysoncanada.ca , the V8, $699.99, seems to be following Moore’s Law, that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years.
Ford Canada hosted a unique From Farm to Ford six course dinner at the Edmonton Art Gallery.
The automaker promoted its research on using sustainable materials in its vehicles. The program, started in 2000, uses several bio-based materials in its vehicles, and is testing many more for future applications including algae, tomato peel and carbon dioxide.

I recently attended a media “driving adventure” for the “re-imagined” 2017 GM Canada Acadia crossover in Whistler. Although the new Acadia was launched earlier this year, GM Canada, creates media driving experiences to familiarize us with new cars, including a similar driving adventure on Vancouver Island last spring with the 2017 Chev Malibu.

Amazon Canada’s 24-hour digital boxing day equivalent PrimeDay is back tonight at midnight PT. You have to be an Amazon Prime member, or start with a one-month free trial. The one-year membership for Canadians costing $79 (plus tax) is a watered down version of the pricier $99 USD US membership, minus the Media Entertainment features.
Is the $79 CDN Amazon Prime membership worth it? It depends on how you use it. My one-year media trial membership is up this Saturday.
Was it worth it for me? Yes! I ordered 10 items for a total of $204.60. I saved more than $100 compared to other online stores, including regular Amazon and real local stores on equivalent items.

The just released LG G5 16 MP smart phone modular design phone is many things to many folks. From creating and sharing your own 360 VR clips to watching your own VR or shared content on the very compact LG 360 VR headset, its hard to not like the G5 and “Friends” .
Personally, the super wide 135 degree shooting and video mode of the G5 rocks for me. Here is a collection of photos in recent tech trips abroad, all on the super wide mode. I even shot selfies with the same rear lens by setting the camera on timer!

Today Samsung’s new flagship 5.1-inch Galaxy S7, $400 with two-year term and 5.5-inch S7 edge featuring dual curves, $500 with two-year term are available in Canadian stores.

I posted the following portfolio of an early version of the Galaxy S7 edge on my Facebook page shortly after its launch in Barcelona on the eve of Mobile World Congress 2016.
