I’m always running late. I think it’s almost a given when you become a mom. And why would you be on time anymore? Getting out of the house alone is taking 30 to 40 minutes: we need to pee, we need to get the teddy, we need to play hide and seek (what better time), we need to change .... I finally gave in, as I decided that I rather enjoy this short time I have with my daughter when she actually wants to play with me. Consequently, I’m late with buying presents for kids in the family. Do I want to go out now and fight wild crowds? No thank you, I’d rather shop in the comfort of my own house (in some areas they will still deliver in time for Christmas). Futureshop show me what you got!

Getting the right new accessory for your desktop PC can transform your computing experience in surprising ways. The best part is how much variety there is in terms of sizes, prices, and functionality that you can be sure to find one to suit anybody, and they can fit under the tree, in a stocking, or wherever, making them great gifts this holiday. When picking out a gift you often want to get something the person will love but might not have got for themselves. That’s what makes PC accessories so perfect. People don’t often think of upgrading or getting something extra fancy. More often than not they pick up accessories out of necessity. This lets you step in and pick something beyond what they merely need, and get something that goes that extra mile to become something they’ll love in ways they never even considered.

It was only 10 years ago that the concept of downloading single songs became the method of choice in enjoying music on portable devices. Now, an entire catalog of millions of tracks can be streamed for a monthly fee. Music streaming services have gone mainstream, and the various providers bear many similarities to each other, making it a little challenging to choose between them. Here’s a look at who’s currently playing in Canada, including what sets them apart from each other.

Buying a tech gift should not only make a lasting impression, it should be something the recipient uses for a lasting duration of time. That’s one of the reasons tech gifts can be so personal.

Of course, the world of consumer technology is big enough as it is, but here are some handpicked items that may be good to look at if you’re so inclined.

It would be easy to say that the BlackBerry Classic is a breath of fresh air for all BlackBerry diehards out there, especially those of you reading this who longed for a return of the trackpad. The most surprising part of the Classic itself (at least what caught me off guard most when I first held it) beyond the allure of the trackpad was how solid and heavy it feels in hand. Read about my initiial impressions of Blackberry's new smartphone.

Have you ever wondered how many photographs are taken each year around the world? Or how many of those photos ultimately make their way onto the Internet where friends and family scattered in dozens of different cities and countries can see them? I often think about such things, and about the fact that just a few short years ago there wasn't even an Internet to share photos on. But now there's not only an Internet for sharing every aspect of our lives, but there are also more and more cameras that are capable of wirelessly sharing those moments.This might just be the biggest development in image capturing technology since the advent of colour photography! And that is why you should read this blog―to learn why your next camera should have built-in WI-FI capabilities!

Getting into a freezing, frosted-over car after a long day at work, or a long stormy night is no fun.  Trying to chip a layer of ice off the windshield is frustrating, and it doesn't help when your doors are frozen shut to boot.
