  • Kodak Underwater Camera

    Take your camcorder underwater Unveiled at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Kodak‘s PlaySport is billed as the first underwater pocket camcorder. Perfect for spring break vacations or cottage excursions, the PlaySport ($159.99) can be submerged in water as deep as 10 feet and still shoot full HD 1080p video (and 5-megapixel still photos) with postage stamp-sized memory cards.


  • The Amazon Kindle (Wireless Books)

    Wireless books on the go

    Now available to Canadians, the Amazon Kindle(US $259) is a small, thin and lightweight electronic book (e-book) reader that lets you download books, magazines and newspapers wirelessly. And it uses 3G connectivity instead of Wi-Fi, therefore you can get reading material virtually anywhere — even on a park bench. Along with the ability to change font sizes, you can also press a button to have books read to you.




  • Sansa Music Player for Workout

    Perfect music player for working out Active types who like to exercise outdoors or at the gym like to be entertained, but not bogged down with hardware. The SanDisk Sansa Clip Plus ($59.99 for 4GB) is a teeny music player that’s smaller than a pack of Tic Tacs, yet it can play up to 1,000 songs on its internal memory — and thousands more with optical microSD memory cards. This clip-on device also houses an FM radio and voice recorder.




  • Tablet, iPad Alternative (Cheap)

    Tablet, on the cheap Those who can’t afford the iPad’s $500+ price tag might consider the mibook (pronounced "my book") instead. This $70 tablet-like media player displays videos, photos and e-books on its 7-inch screen, and can also play music, audiobooks and podcasts. The mibook also works with instructional video cards (sold separately) which contain lessons on how to cook dishes, plant gardens or perform DIY projects.

This Wi-Fi-enabled, Windows 7-powered machine features an Intel Atom processor, 1GB of system memory, a 160GB hard drive and three USB ports.

  • Best Pocket Hard Drive For Backups

Specifically, we’re crazy about its 10-inch glossy screen, near full-size (94 per cent) keyboard, rubber-like finish for a tight grip, and optional built-in 3G connectivity so you can log online anywhere (which brings the price down to $199.99 with a two-year Bell plan).
