Future Shop has been a great place to buy printers since the start of desktop publishing. They’ve had every major model of popular printer from Canon, Epson, Lexmark, and Brother.

It’s time for Future Shop to start carrying 3D printers.

If you’ve ever felt your iPad was missing more of a booming audio presence, Belkin is looking to scratch that itch with its Thunderstorm case, which the company says is “the first handheld home theatre” for the tablet. With a hard, tight-fitting design, and stereo speakers along the side, the Thunderstorm also features the ability to direct the audio out to you depending on if you’re watching alone or with someone else.

Tablets and gaming should go hand-in-hand and Razer will be coming out with a gaming tablet that should be an interesting proposition for any gamer. Fusing together elements of a tablet, PC and game console, the Edge is basically the tablet equivalent of what a gaming PC is.

One thing that seems to transcend the show this year is that just about every screen on every type of device is getting bigger. The most obvious on the computer side is probably Lenovo’s IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, the company’s first “interpersonal PC”, which lets you lay it flat on almost any surface and have two people use it at the same time.
