After a ten year hiatus, the much-lauded Thief series returns with a brand new game on PlayStation and Xbox game consoles, and PC. There's a lot riding on this reboot of the PC classic, with a lot of people wondering: will this new game stay true to the roots of the franchise or will it fall short of its strong legacy?  Let's find out!

As much as TV is changing — how you watch it, where you watch it and when you watch it — there is something to be said about using a remote that can control almost everything you have in your home theatre. Logitech’s Harmony Ultimate One is the cream of the crop of universal remotes, controlling up to 15 devices covering over 225,000 models from 5,000 brands. If you want a keyboard to do the job in tandem with your smartphone or tablet, the Harmony Smart Keyboard might be more to your liking.


Samsung Galaxy S5 is a notable evolutionary step in the right direction

When Samsung released the Galaxy Note 3 last fall, I called it the company’s true flagship smartphone because there wasn’t much else like it on the market. By that time, the Galaxy S4 had the notoriety despite being supplanted by a few other handsets. The Galaxy S5 is not a huge leap forward from its predecessor, but it is a notable evolutionary step in the right direction that ensures this phone will compete to be the best.

Why you should upgrade from Windows XP now

by Blogger on ‎04-07-2014 04:50 PM - last edited on ‎04-11-2014 09:53 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



Windows XP first came out way back in 2001, over twelve years ago. In the technology world twelve years can be a lifetime. Fittingly, Windows XP is now coming to the end of its life with Microsoft ending support for the aging OS on April 8. Windows XP was a great operating system, there is no doubt about that, and it had quite an impressive run. However, times change and so too must your PC’s operating system. For many users with relatively modern machines, you can just upgrade to Windows 8.1 and enjoy all the enhancements the latest OS has to offer like greater personalization, security, and cloud connectivity.

       Bosch dishwasher


There are few things in this world that I find more unpleasant than washing dishes, and seeing a huge stack of dirty dishes is almost enough to make me forgo dishware entirely (in favour of paper plates and plastic utensils). Thankfully, in modern times we've been blessed with the automated dishwasher—possibly the greatest invention since dishes themselves! And no brand of dishwasher today is of a higher quality than the German engineered, multiple award winning, Bosch dishwasher, of which there are several excellent models available. And that's why in this blog I'm going to briefly examine 3 Bosch dishwasher models that are currently available on the Future Shop website. So, if you're as bothered by dirty dishes as I am, simply click through for some useful info on how to arm yourself for victory in the ongoing battle against dirty dishes!

Preview: HTC unveils all-new One smartphone

HTC launched its new One (M8) smartphone today at an event in New York, looking to expand on the design culture that featured so prominently on last year’s model.

Introducing the amazingly fast router from Linksys, the WRT1900AC

by Blogger on ‎03-21-2014 04:13 PM - last edited on ‎04-14-2014 08:45 AM by Blog Editor in Chief



You might not look at a router as a ‘sexy’ product but it’s an indispensable tool for your home entertainment needs, especially if you like streaming a lot of your content, or happen to live with others who like to do it, too. Linksys has gone retro with the WRT1900AC Smart WiFi Router, its blue-and-black design, standing antennas and boxy frame more like the routers of yesteryear than the sleeker models typically seen today. Still, if you think of this as a muscle car among routers, you would be on the right track considering what it does.
