You may know Western Digital primarily as a hard drive manufacturer but they have also had a fair amount of success with media streaming HDTV gadgets in the past but it’s a highly competitive category with companies like Google, Apple, and Roku fighting tooth and nail for supremacy. I’ve spent some time taking the WD Live TV media player for a spin and am pleased to see how well it stacks up against that competition. It doesn’t just hold its own, it offers some great features and performance at a very wallet friendly price. It certainly offers a lot of bang for your buck.

My father is an industrial engraver and he’s a very practical guy. He started his own business in the mid-eighties, and in that time he hasn’t been one for excess or flashiness for the sake of flashiness; I can’t count the number of times he told me, in his thick Birmingham accent “…the right tool for the right job.”


The LG 42LN5200 is the right tool for a lot of people, and it might be perfect for you too. It’s a display built for simple, accessible watchingand with the right equipment it could be a great choice for a few different types of customers.

The holidays are a time of family, relaxing (I say that loosely, though; there is often little relaxing when everyone is under one roof), and of course, gift giving. Now that the family has gone on their respective ways and work is back to its fast-paced hustle, it’s time to dive into all the gadgets that have been staring you down, awaiting your excitingly over-zealous use. However, with said new gadgets, (think: TV’s, sound systems, game consoles, etc.) all running simultaneously, consuming copious amounts of energy, comes a real worry – power surges; they’re real, and they happen more often than one would think.


So what can you do to protect your house and precious new toys? Let’s take a look at a few popular models of surge protectors and discuss what makes them special:

We've all experienced that moment of having your television break down on you. It can bring upon many emotions: panic, sadness, frustration... devastation even if it's in the middle of your favourite show that you did not PVR.


While Future Shop can't bring that show back (although perhaps they can re-enact the final scenes if they happened to catch it), we can fix your television!

Ultra HD and OLED have gotten the lion’s share of the hype at CES, but one of the most intriguing ideas surrounding TV is how to make them ‘new’ again for consumers. Samsung’s Evolution Kit may provide an opportunity in the future for TV owners to upgrade and gain access to new features the company comes out with in later TV models. In other words, spending all that money on a high-end flat-panel can presumably get a new lease on life after this kit is placed on the back.

You can’t walk the show floor without either seeing something about Ultra HD (or 4K) or hearing somebody mention it, but one thing that hasn’t been mentioned as much is upconverting from Blu-ray to 4K. Sony presented what upconverted content looks like, and while it appears impressive, it harkens back to a time when DVD looked just a little closer to HD.
