Back to School

I'm Futurist Trevor Haldenby and a few weeks ago, I wrote about some of the exciting careers that might exist in Canada in the year 2020. But while cubicles and phone banks will probably survive for the next 5 to 10 years, we’re also going to see some exciting changes around where we go to work every day.

Part of settling in to a dorm or shared house at school will be getting set up on your own network, and Future Shop has you covered there. With all the routers and extenders available, you’ve got a lot of options to help you ensure the best connectivity wherever you are for both work and play. It’s a good idea to avoid underestimating your connectivity needs and build your set up ready to accommodate the wireless needs of all sorts of devices because you never know what situation you’ll end up with and you always want the best possible experience.

Technology has been amazing for humans, but the side benefits is it’s trickling down to our pets too! Cats and dogs are able to benefit from advancements in technology that now allow us to feed them automatically, track their movement, let them in and out of the house while we’re out, and even keep them in our yards without fences. Check out some of the top pet tech products.
It’s exciting to watch your kid learn new things. It’s just fascinating how little kids absorb information. Everyday I observe my daughter learning new things through technology accesible today. Needless to say I got quite excited to test the Innotab 3 Plus and Innotab 3 S Plus, as they combine what I want for my daughter (developing her skills) with what my daughter wants from her toys (that she can pretend to be like mommy or daddy having tablet like toy).
If you are like me, a console gamer, every 5 or so years, you will be faced with a tough decision. When should you upgrade to the next generation of gaming consoles? Back in the earlier days of console gaming this was pretty obvious especially with the huge jumps in graphics and other related tech. Going from 8-bit machines(like the Nintendo Entertainment System) to 16-bit machine (like the SEGA Genesis and the Super Nintendo) was like a dream come true everything was such a huge change, graphics, sounds and games all had major upgrades. These days however, the reasons to upgrade aren’t quite as straight forward.
After spending two weeks with Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 it has become a go-to model for me to recommend to all of my friends and family who are tired of blurry, dark shots and under performing smartphones. It’s not the holy grail of cameras… but it’s pretty close. Read on to find out why.
This year is a little different for me: the last weekend in August is PAX - the Penny Arcade Expo. I’ve been there without fail for the last six years, but this year? This year I’m home playing games instead. Earlier in August I had a chance to visit the Centre for Digital Media here in Vancouver, to check out the Evolution of Gaming exhibit. It’s amazing just how far gaming has evolved, and where it’s going next. Let’s take a look.
Have you cut the cord? For some it’s unthinkable; that big, juicy cable/satellite package is as much a necessity as running water. But for those in the country, have a cottage, or if you’re looking to take your TV destiny into their own hands, having a monthly cable bill just isn’t in the cards. That’s why I ended up cutting the cord with an HDTV antenna, an HDTV tuner and an incredibly awesome PVR. Keep reading, because I’m going to show you how.
