The Samsung Experience is a new integration in many Best Buy locations nationwide. From the large TVs that adorn the massive lit wall to the ability to pick out and test out a new cell phone, laptop or tablet, this store-within-a-store makes identifying, and shopping for your favourite Samsung products that much easier. Come take a look at the new Samsung Experience, now available in almost 20 different locations across Canada.
My friends and family may be geographically distant from me, but these days it’s easy to keep them close through technologies like email, video chatting, social networking, and—especially—digital photography.

Late last year Nikon brought out the first Android powered camera, and now Samsung is entering this market with its new Galaxy Camera. Most smartphones are cameras as well, but can cameras also be smartphones? It seems that they now almost are. I say almost, because this Samsung camera does everything a smartphone can do except ironically make a phone call, and I guess you could even do that by using any one of a number of VOIP apps. The Samsung smart camera is the first camera that has 4G or LTE capabilities, so you don’t need to wait until you have WiFi to connect to the Internet. Instead of having a smartphone with a mediocre camera, this is a very good camera with almost all of the advantages of a smartphone. It comes pre-loaded with wonderful editing and sharing features for your pictures, and even voice controls for the camera.

If you have a point-and-shoot digital camera chances are you take almost all of your photographs in automatic mode. However, by making a few simple changes to your camera settings you can dramatically improve your photos. Your camera was designed to take great photos in different conditions, and it really is simple to learn and use. So invest a few minutes and learn how to change some of your cameras settings. I will describe several here that you should know and are included in most digital cameras.
One of the best things of being a tech geek is putting new technology to the test. My most recent product to put through the ringer is the new Samsung DV 300F, a point and shoot camera with onboard Wi-Fi.
One of my biggest pet peeves with digital cameras is the inconvenience they can present when sharing photos. I’m used to using my Smartphone to snap a quick pick and post it to Facebook in a flash. Having to upload and create albums on my PC and then again pick and choose what I would like on the web can be a pain.

The long dreary Canadian winter is finally melting away, which means it's time to pack for summer holidays! One of the most important things to bring other than your passport is, most likely, your digital camera. Whether you plan on going scuba diving around a coral reef, climbing Everest or seeking Willy out in the Pacific, there are different cameras suited for each location.
I must admit, I have been intrigued by (but not necessarily interested in) the digital photo frame for quite some time. I have seen it used predominantly in a business setting but as I pan my office and observe a bunch of out dated family photos and then look at the jumbled mess of photos with curled up edges on my refrigerator, I wonder whether it’s time to consider this little invention for my own personal use.
