    Preview.jpgRazer Blade. Two words guaranteed to grab the attention of anyone who takes PC gaming seriously. The gaming laptop series made waves in 2013, landing on a slew of “best of” lists.

You’ll soon find the all-new Razer Blade gaming laptops at Best Buy (you’ll be able to pre-order them this week), including the impossibly thin and light 14-inch model with its 5.76 million pixels —the world’s highest resolution 14-inch notebook display.

  • How to Connect Stereo Speakers to Your TV

    HiFi Speakers to TV.jpg 

    Flat screen TV’s keep getting thinner, which makes for fantastic aesthetics, but makes it difficult to provide great sound. Tiny skinny speakers just can’t cut it! Although I am impressed that the sound is as good as it is, TV sound doesn’t create a very good entertainment experience. The best way to enhance that experience is with a surround sound system that will immerse you in the scene. The next best option is a sound bar – the sound won’t be quite as immersive as a surround system but it might fit your space better, is much simpler to set up, and can provide excellent sound. But if you can’t get it together for either of those options, another way to improve your sound experience is connect some stereo speakers to your TV. You won’t get the surround effects or possibly other great features like Bluetooth or WiFi streaming that you can get with those other systems, but you can still make the TV sound better.

    Logitech has been a long time leader in providing excellent universal remote controls. They provide such a wide range of universal remotes that you are sure to find the ideal remote for your entertainment system and budget. At the top end of their line is the Harmony Ultimate, which has amazing capabilities – in fact more than the average person will likely need. Logitech just introduced welcome additions to their lineup with the Harmony Ultimate One and the Harmony Smart Keyboard. They are both priced much more favourably than the Harmony Ultimate but have everything you will likely need. I got a chance to test them both so here is my full report.

  • Android Wear: Information that moves with you

    Android Wear preview.jpgSmartwatches, augmented reality glasses, fitness trackers --any compact extension to your smartphone or tablet-- is firmly in Google’s sights with the announcement of Android Wear. What is Android Wear? It’s a push to extend Android to those smartwatches and wearable devices, using a standard API and developer tools so Android apps for smartphones and tablets can be ported to, or seamlessly integrated with those wearables. Google is working with developers and hardware partners like Samsung, Fossil and LG on the Android Wear Initiative. And you’ll see two Android Wear-powered smartwatches at Best Buy Later this year: the Moto 360 and LG’s G Watch.

     

  • Review: Disney Magical World [Nintendo 3DS] What if you could live in the Disney Universe?

    1389362762-disney-magical-world.jpgWhen I was a child, I wanted to be a dentist despite the fact that I hated going to one. A friend of mine wanted to be a fire truck. Not a fire fighter. The truck. Something just about all of us wanted to do at one point or another, however, was go live at Disneyland, Disney World or somewhere in the world of Disneyana.

Disney Magical World answers the question of what life might look like if you DID, in fact, live with your friends and favorite Disney characters in the town of Castleton.
