I spend a lot of time talking about creating recipes here on Shelly’s Friday Favourites, but I’ve discovered recently that some of the most delicious things in life don’t have to involve cooking at all. In fact, they don’t have to involve eating either.

Today I follow up on 2 recent dashboard camera articles by other Bloggers (such as Dashcam 101: What you need to know to get started by Paliontology) to let you know what general features you can expect to find within each of 3 dashcam price / quality ranges. I selected the ranges myself and will confess that they are completely arbitrary, but they should give you some idea of what you can expect to receive in either a low, a medium, or a high end dashcam. So if you've been thinking of joining the dashcam revolution, step on in and learn all about this awesome emerging technology!

Camping is one of summer's best outdoor activities. The sunshine, the warmth, cooking over an open fire and sipping a glass of wine under the stars. With the right gear, like the new line of BioLite stoves and lighting, camping doesn't have to be “roughing it,” it can be a relaxing way to get outdoors, while still having some of the comforts of home: like fully charged phones, lights and cameras!

With various models are coming down in price, there’s a greater range of display sizes available, making 4K and Ultra HD TVs more viable for consumers

If you’ve got kids in the school system, odds are you’re hearing a lot about bullying right now. The days when kids entering high school have to worry about getting their heads flushed or shoved into lockers has, for the most part, gone by the wayside because of teachers actively watching for physical bullying and anti-bullying campaigns. But like when you douse out a campfire and there’s a chance of a jumping embers, when you control one type of bullying a new one can crop up. I’m talking about cyber bullying or online harassment, and it’s becoming a serious problem in Canada.

Our road trip continues with a good old-fashioned pit stop at the Happiest Place on Earth. For some people, going to Disneyland means hitting all the shows, parades, and attractions. We like to do that too, but because we have annual passes and go so often, we’ve added to our adventure by becoming hunters for the best dishes and treats in the park. There are a lot of treats to be had, and they’re more delicious than you may think.

2014 saw a bumper crop of new smartphones, including the long-awaited “bigger” iPhones, what is arguably Samsung’s best looking smartphone ever and BlackBerry’s return to its classic QWERTY roots. If a new smartphone is on your holiday shopping list, I’ve put together a collection of 10 of the biggest smartphone releases of the year —complete with a comparison of key features— that should make choosing the perfect smartphone a little easier.

Sony has been making waves with its latest smartphones, the Z3 Compact and the flagship Xperia Z3. I just sent a loaner Xperia Z3 back to Sony after several weeks of enjoying its big screen Android experience. This is one nice-looking smartphone and just in time for winter snow showers, it’s waterproof. And don’t get me started on the battery life. Read on for my full Sony Xperia Z3 experience.

Smart TVs are now the dominant TV, but what about Smart home products? They are not far behind in becoming just as pervasive in most homes. Smart home gizmos are usually technologies that are linked to our mobile devices and that add a lot of convenience to our lives. Most of us cannot live for an hour, let alone a day, without doing some activity on our Smartphone. But Smartphones have a lot more capability than what we use them for, and Smart Home products tap into that underutilized capacity. They also make great gifts, so here are my top picks that will delight just about anyone.

Fitness trackers are a great tool for anyone interested in getting the most out of their workout or just adopting some healthy new habits. I’ve tested out a lot of wearable technology and used quite a few different fitness trackers, and although they all have different features that will appeal to a different type of user, the common thread I found with all of them is how incredibly motivating they are. Fitness trackers make great gifts for the holidays too, so if you’d like to choose one for yourself or pick one up to put under the tree this year, here’s a few types you can choose from.

Last year’s Moto X was a surprise hit, winning praise for its attractive design, nearly pure Android UI and excellent value proposition. This year’s follow-up Moto X is much more than a spec-bumped version 2. The new Moto X is significantly bigger, much more powerful and gains new features, while retaining much of the appeal of the original. I just wrapped up a week with the 2014 Moto X and I’ll be sorry to see it go.

When putting together the quintessential “classic look,” there is no accessory more important than the pearl. Whether it’s a single string of pearls, a pair of pearl earrings, or even a multi-strand necklace that pins to your dress (as in the unforgettable scene Jean Cocteau’s black and white La Belle et la Bête, which bears a striking resemblance to the faux-pearl Vintage Heirloom Pewter With Clear Crystal Stones Necklace available at Best Buy). This is one wardrobe staple with endless versatility.

There are many wireless audio options out there, like Sonos, Airplay, Bose Soundtouch, Dennon HEOS, and many more. But they all require connecting up to “their” system using an app on “their” devices. But if you already have a good stereo system that sounds great and simply want to wirelessly play music on it the Mass Fidelity Relay may be just the ticket! Here’s why.

I'll never forget that time in Grade 4 when my friend asked his grandparents for a specific game for his Super Nintendo, and his grandma bought him the Nintendo version of the game instead. He was then told that he had to keep it so not to hurt his grandma's feelings. The story sticks with me because I'll often get asked questions from parents or grandparents about whether they can buy, say, NHL (current year) for PlayStation when the gamer has an Xbox. Or even whether that year's NHL for the Xbox 360 would just play on the Xbox One since it's cheaper to buy that one. This is a pretty quick and easy guide to understanding backwards (and even cross-platform) compatibility between gaming consoles to hopefully help you decide which versions are the right ones, and which ones should be avoided when you're out buying for your gamer.
