The Shield can be positioned horizontally or vertically, but it’s a wee bit wobbly in its vertical position unless you purchase a separate stand for a substantial £24.99. One word of advice if you do take the plunge, though: Nvidia has used some sort of black magic to create what might just be the stickiest rubber coating in existence and applied it to the bottom of the stand. More often than not it simply wouldn’t budge from the surface it was on when I needed to move it, and I ended up having to pry it up with a fish slice.

Sony points out in response to questions on this subject that there are apps for iOS that support Casting, and it’s still reasonably easy to share multimedia from Apple devices to the TV. You can voice search via Apple devices too. But the level of integration isn’t as profound for owners of Apple devices – even if those Apple owners haven’t already turned their noses up at the very mention of Android.

The Nvidia Shield is the best box for wannabe Android TV owners. Not only does it stream content in 4K HDR, but it plays a whole host of games you won’t find on any other streaming device thanks to Nvidia’s GeForce Now service. On top of the games and 4K content, you’ll find Amazon Instant Video here (the Shield is the only Android TV device with Amazon) and Google Assistant integration. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s well worth it.

You should have plenty of content to watch via all the Canadian networks listed above, but there is a lot more content available south of the border that isn’t always available to Canadians. Just like Canada – most of the networks offer full length episodes on their own websites.
Horizon TV Liberty Global A cross-platform platform based fork of the Kodi/XBMC media center software with proprietary middleware framework for video on demand and handling DRM for streaming cable television channels.
So blares an online advertisement for fully-loaded Android boxes that let people stream content, including live sports, without paying for cable packages or online streaming services. The devices use open source software called Kodi that’ are legal, but third-party add-ons that make it easy to watch pirated videos push these $100 boxes into a legal grey zone.
Google’s new vision for Android TV is less ambitious and easier to understand. The company is calling for developers to build extremely simple TV apps for an extremely simple set-top-box interface. While Android still lives under the hood, the interface will consist of a set of scrolling “cards” that represent movies, shows, apps, and games sitting on a shelf. You use a remote control with a four-way directional pad to scroll left and right through different suggestions, or up and down through different categories of content, each with their own shelves. Much like on other set top boxes, each item will be like a miniature movie poster or book cover, and you’ll pick the one you want. The controller will also have Enter, Home, and Back buttons to help get around, and there will be “optional” game controllers.

That was in the late 1990s, and just before the turn of the millennium, even after Microsoft has stopped selling the device, their user numbers grew to nearly 800,000. There was a demand, but the tech was still struggling to rise to the wants of the consumer.

There are a few other new accessories in the DxO lineup, like a simple stand, and a pouch that’s meant to attach to your belt just like you holstered a pager 20 years ago. But it’s the combination of wireless shooting and ruggedized housing that’s most exciting. It makes the DxO One a partner for your phone, rather than a parasite. Your phone can stay on shore while you stomp around in the water, or in your pocket while you carve down the mountain. DxO is already thinking about and working on integration with live-streaming video apps, too, which would be even cooler.
MaKey Makey turns everyday objects into digital touchpads for your computer. Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum designed it while they were in grad school at MIT. Inspired by the maker movement, they wanted to create an open-ended way of getting people to think creatively about how kids interact with our increasingly networked world. The result is a clever kit that makes a controller of literally anything that conducts electricity.
The cases are all handcrafted out of real wood, so each one looks different and is engraved by the carpenter who made it. The cases come in four different types of wood: American Cherry, Rosewood, Zebra, or American Walnut, so you can pick the grain that most suits your daily grind. The case is currently available for preorder and will begin shipping next week.
Considering that the average smartphone user takes out their phone more than 220 times a day, you might want to invest in a nice case. Wood is generally prettier than plastic, and while there are a variety of wooden phone cases to choose from, most of them have some visible plastic or rubber that totally distracts from that outdoorsy vibe you’re going for.
Alexa’s coming to Amazon’s other tablets, too, so if you’re really hoping to save some coin you can pick up a $50 Fire. If you’ve been wanting to see what Alexa’s all about, that’s the cheapest way ever to do so. But the Fire HD 8 is a much better device, for not that much more money. And don’t forget: you can buy five of them for the price of the iPad Mini. And they both play Netflix pretty well.
