While technology like smartphones, tablets and such seem at first glance to be aimed at the young and hip, it's those in need of replacement hips who will be the biggest winners as technology continues to transform our daily lives bit by byte. When you can Skype with your grandchildren, email your children or keep in touch with old and new friends via Facebook, you don't feel as isolated. For chronic diseases that afflict the elderly, like diabetes and heart disease, there are now so many easy-to-use apps and gadgets to monitor blood-sugar levels, blood pressure and more. Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.

I Love my BlackBerry, But...

Confession: I'm completed addicted to my BlackBerry. As a working mom of three kids six and under, it has freed me from my desk and made me more productive than I ever imagined. But, something happened last week that stopped me in my tracks.

I'm an iPhotographer and Proud of it

Talia Ricci | Posted 12.24.2012 | Canada Travel

When a travel photographer ventured to other countries only a couple of decades ago, they had to carefully pack their camera bags with all of these supplies and ensure their film was stored appropriately afterward. Today, with the touch of a screen, a moment can be captured and shared with your social network within seconds. I believe these phone photography tools can be beneficial, especially while travelling. The way I look at it now, I see Instagram as a challenge.

Why Your Company Should Consider Topless Meetings

Karen Cleveland

A friend of mine introduced me to the term "topless meetings." Before you forward this to your HR manager, the expression refers to a tabletop staying free of devices during meetings. No laptops. No iPhones. No iPads. No Blackberries. Nothing that requires a charge. The idea underpinning device-free meetings is that such gadgets can prove more distracting than helpful.

Why Should We Be at the Mercy of Anonymous' "Lulz"?

Daniel Alexandre Portoraro | Posted 11.05.2012 | Canada

Anonymous sub-group Anti-Sec supposedly holds in its hands 12-million Apple user IDs it acquired from hacking. The hacktivist group refuses to release the IDs until -- wait for it -- Adrien Chen of Gawker poses on the front page of the site in a ballet tutu with a shoe on top of his head. It remains to be seen whether Anonymous does have anything to give the public it strives to supposedly protect, or whether this was just another one of their pranks done "for the lulz," that is to say, for the stroking of their own vanity.

One Gadget To Replace Them All

When my friend suggested I get an iPhone, I said that I didn't need one. Now that I've got one (and I love it) I can see he was right about it being a facilitator of convenience and creator of efficiency; boy, is it ever! What I didn't anticipate is that all of those other gadgets in my life would lose their purpose once I got an iPhone.

Why We Shouldn't Cast Away Podcasting

Podcasts enable each and every one of us to become the eclectic, program directors of our own radio stations, and best of all, it's the cheapest way to learn that you can find.

Watching the Watchdog: Daily Planet Fails in the Name of Science

Tim Knight

But today's young people aren't fools, particularly when it comes to science. Hosts Ziya Tong and Dan Riskin serve the young (and the rest of us) badly. They're both attractive and presumably intelligent. Their version of Daily Planet isn't either.

Did Al Gore Contribute to Apple's $20 Billion Loss?

Tony Kondaks | Posted 12.21.2011 | Canada Business
Tony Kondaks

Did Gore's premature announcement contribute to any potential iPhone customers not making a purchase that they otherwise would have? l Gore is an Apple board member and, as such, any public pronouncement he makes holds much more weight than rumours circulating on the internet.

10 Things I've Learned From Steve Jobs

Some people hate Apple, and it is mostly based on how much other people love Apple. Apple products engender strong feelings, one way or the other. Any company can do this, though. It just requires that you take a chance upsetting some people and focus on what you love.

The Evolution of Apps

Mitch Joel | Posted 11.06.2011 | Canada
Mitch Joel

Having the power to create an app that a brand or media entity can control, update and change on the fly (that isn't beholden to another media entity) not only makes sense, but points us to a new day and age where brands can develop their own media.

Copying has long been what China does with Western stuff, but the Apple Store story seems to have touched a new nerve. Now, not only is the product being copied but the retail aesthetic and subsequent hype is, too. That's being perceived as a threat.
