We’ve all come a long way from some milk crates, a sawhorse and an old CRT TV so heavy it required a handful of neighbours just to reposition it. Home theatres and their equipment today are smaller, lighter, faster, sharper and much more realistic. What would you put in a dream home theatre?  Find out what we built from the selections available on

Future Shopping is about more than just preparing to go back to school

Future Shopping


School is quickly approaching, and many parents, students and teachers are preparing for the return of the normal routine that comes with going back to school. Of course you’ll need to purchase boxes to carry lunches, books for taking notes, printers for those assignments that will have to be submitted and all the other school related items you’d expect. But shopping for back to school is about a lot more than just the obvious. For the past few weeks, Future shop has been posting tweets, blogs articles and Facebook items that emphasize that back to school shopping is about more than just preparing for next month and the beginning of school. As I’ll explain here, by thinking beyond next month and beyond simply “back to school”you will be more likely to prepare today’s students for the world they will face when their schooling is complete.

“Should we get a… Blu-ray?” It’s a question within a question, and I hear it a lot. For those who were late to DVD, Blu-ray seems like a big jump. I got that question last week, and answered it for my friends by installing the Samsung H6500 3D Wi-Fi 4k Smart TV Blu-ray player. Here’s how it went.

Why do we travel? For many it’s a chance to experience new things, see new places, and meet new people. Sharing these things with our friends and family through beautiful, fun, and one-of-a-kind pictures is one of the best parts; preserving a perfect moment make it last a lifetime. When you’re traveling with your Canon Digital SLR camera you have a wide range of choice of lenses to bring with you. We’ve got three lenses that we think are a perfect starting point for your ultimate travel lens kit.

Review: Murdered: Soul Suspect for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One

Murdered Soul Suspect - Ronan investigating his own death.jpg


It was scarcely an hour into Murdered: Soul Suspect before I realized that this hokey detective crime game had me fully absorbed in its spectral narrative. This whodunit adventure stars Ronan O'Connor, a former criminal turned gumshoe, who witnesses his own murder at the hands of a ruthless killer terrorizing the city of Salem, Massachusetts. Now as an apparition trapped in a form of purgatory, Ronan must bring his perpetrator to justice in order to placate his soul and gain passage into the afterlife. While Murder: Soul Suspect does have its faults, if you’re a fan of crime fiction this may be just the game you’ve been waiting for.

Review: Eurocom Armadillo

by Blogger on ‎08-27-2014 03:39 PM - last edited on ‎08-29-2014 03:37 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



I’ve reviewed a number of Eurocom laptops in the past. In the process I’ve become a big fan of their approach. Their machines tend to have very robust power under the hood, restrained yet aggressive styling, and an undeniable sense of quality. They’re often not the smallest, lightest machines though. If you want to go small and light, and are willing to sacrifice on power then the there are a lot of options out there for you to choose from. While not all their laptops are bulky desktop-replacement gaming rigs, they never quite seemed competitive with ultraportable laptops and ultrabooks in terms of convenience. For gaming laptops their portability is great but in the world of everyday work machines, I can see why some might want something a bit thinner. That’s why I was surprised when I unboxed the Eurocom Armadillo. It doesn’t have a trace of bulk and feels as portable as I could hope for. Finally a Eurocom laptop I could happily carry around with me day to day.

Review: Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 Tri-Band Router

by Blogger on ‎08-26-2014 07:27 AM - last edited on ‎08-28-2014 12:57 PM by Blog Editor in Chief


A modem may be the key utility device that brings in an Internet connection, but it’s the router that plays the important role of distributing it. If not done properly, you don’t get the real benefit of what you’re paying for every month. Routers don’t carry the kind of cachet other fancier gadgets do because you don’t typically interact with them often, yet they do the heavy lifting that makes using the Internet enjoyable and carefree. Netgear’s Nighthawk X6 AC3200 is an ode to design with its stealth bomber-like form factor, yet its performance is what you need to consider most if you really want to amp up a busy home Internet connection.
