Another great opportunity to show gadgets to CityTV Breakfast Television Viewing Audience. What a blast it was!.  Incredible interview by Wendy Sandwith – it was certainly an honour to meet her for the first time – she’s pretty enthusiastic about gadgets and it made for a great segment!  Lots of Fun!  Incredible crew!

Four minutes is not enough time to talk in detail about all the gadgets, so in case you want to know more – here it is.

We looked at the QuikPod and the QuikPod DSLR monopod like  gadgets to allow you to take photos of yourself and more. We also looked at the Mophie Juice Pack and the Tekkeon MP1200 Cases for iPod/iPhone that double as a spare battery (Reviewed at G4 Tech TV Canada)  We also looked at the Ecosol PowerStick – Made in Canada ( review at Canoe Technology). Spare power in a tiny stick to power or recharge various handheld devices. The Timex Ironman iPod Edition allows you to attach a dongle or thingamabob – as Wendy calls it, to your iPod and control it from the Timex Watch. To demonstrate these gadgets, we used the Apple iPod Touch & iPod Video.
