The Cutting-Edge of Cool: 2016 Range Rover Evoque

There’s some kind of aura that comes into play while you’re commanding a new Range Rover. Actually, I take that back. The prestige factor is deafeningly apparent, but it’s more than just the name that makes the Range Rover a high end make. You can sense the hundreds of thousands of hours spent defining its visually captivating design, and presumably more building the advanced technology that compliments it. You can notably feel the confidence slipping off every curve. This  ...

5 Really Important Things I Learned About Mobile Wallets from PayPal

Mobile wallets. It’s been on the top of my mind for the past year, mainly because I’m one of those guys that has to wear both hats.

It’s been a week since the BlackBerry 10 launch and I’m neck deep into my new Blackberry Z10: learning the in’s and out’s of this fantastic little Canadian device. I think it’s only fair, as a reviewer, that I do three things to simplify the learning process: (1) Post a video of myself and my good friend Sharad from Freshly Educated Men talking about BlackBerry 10 (2) Give you the Good, the Bad, and the Opportunity about the BlackBerry Z10 (3) Explain in  ...
