It’s getting cold, men start to grow beards and just like this you know it: hockey season has started. Forget Christmas: the true Canadian family gathering is hockey night, hockey games….anything hockey. Hockey runs in the veins of all Canadians. Truly, babies in Canada, right after birth should have been given a hockey jersey instead of swaddling blankets. But in all honesty, hockey is so very Canadian. I'm a big fan of Air Hockey, as it definitely supports the social aspect of hockey in the comfort of your own house, while experiencing the crazy canuck spirit. If you’re like me, Futureshop might have something in store for you….

Is the last minute holiday shopping phenomenon by men a myth? Personally, as a guy who annually enjoys the challenge of shopping for gifts under the tree and in the stockings leading up to December 25th, I don't think so, but enterprise solutions company SAP and Ipsos believes it is.

Ever tried to dance to "Silent Night"? How about cutting a rug to "We Wish You a Merry Christmas"? Not likely because, if you're like me, you find holiday parties to be a somewhat stuffy affair.  But it's high time that changed and a beat-thumping Christmas bash could be your gift to the world. Have a look at all the DJ equipment you need to throw such a smashing good party that Santa himself won't want to leave.


Last minute gifts for kids

by Blogger on ‎12-19-2014 10:49 AM - last edited on ‎12-19-2014 03:26 PM by Blog Editor in Chief



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.

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.
