With a 5-year warranty right on the box, it's hard to imagine a product as such that will last the mile. NOMAD's new Universal charging cable provides you with USB-A, Lightning and Type-C and military grade cable. Bolstering a 10K flex ratio which should be more than enough for anyone.

NOMAD is introducing two new products and a review is coming!

You might not know much on NOMAD as it stands, I've talked about a few of their products earlier last year and have done a few reviews on some of the products they offer. I've been keeping in touch with NOMAD and made the acquisition of the NOMAD Universal cable and the NOMAD Ultra rugged Powerpack.

Just giving a heads out for people who might be wondering what NOMAD's been up to all this time. They've been keeping busy and I'm going to be doing a full review of these 2 products. Keep an eye open for the reviews here and on Android news and all the bytes.

Roku's app just got better (find channels and movies easier and a better remote)

Image result for rokuI love my streaming ... I can't remember the last time I watched a live TV show or even a PVR'd one.

We have Kodi, but a lot of what we watch comes via our Roku set, with Netflix, Youtube or Google Play Movies.

For a while now Roku has had an app for their devices, and it was nice to be able to use it here and there (mostly to annoy my son when we've told him no more watching and I can exit out of Youtube with the phone from another room).

It worked, but a lot of the options weren't as easy to get to.

Yesterday they updated the app and it's now a lot more straight forward.

New YouTube sharing feature is live in Canada but its invite only everywhere else...

For once Canada get's something from Google first, we now have the new sharing method implemented in YouTube first. According YouTube Canadians share 15% more content than anywhere else in the world.
Canadians will see a new Shared tab in the mobile YouTube, which serves as a list of ongoing conversations. If you have your contacts already pre-configured, you can easily send and share videos with them. In itself, it's interesting that Google would go about releasing this, while others might just say euh?

[Review] Surrey Electric Media Fireplace

Over the holidays my wife and I were looking for a replacement TV stand for the basement, and in our search decided we should get one with a fake fireplace to keep the chill out of the basement while watching movies.

Let me tell you, I hate shopping.  She had picked out from a few for me to have my input on, which was most appreciated and then I looked them few over.  One stood out to me, because it had bluetooth, and an app.  When picking between something without phone integration and something with... I always choose with.

It was the Surrey Electric Media Fireplace

So we got it (and on sale), it was a huge box and took me a while to get into the house.  My father-in-law came over and we had an evening of putting it together.  Wasn't too hard and in no time it was all set up.

I'm not going to go into how the device works, rather I thought I'd chat about how the app is.
