This past weekend I had the privilege of dropping by the inaugural Super Smash Club event held at District 28 in downtown Toronto to celebrate the launch of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Super Smash Club is a Canadian-exclusive initiative created by Nintendo, and sponsored by Future Shop, that lets fans participate in the launch of Super Smash Bros. at live events across the country, and share their excitement for the franchise online through community-driven social media contests. It was amazing to see first-hand at the Toronto event just how passionate the Canadian fans of Super Smash Bros. are about this franchise--come take a look for yourself!

If you’ve shopped for a computer at all in the past few years, you’ve likely heard people talking about cores. They’re not talking about apples, obviously. They’re referring to technology that allows your central processing unit (or CPU for short) to support multiple independent CPUs that work in harmony to produce more computational horsepower.
Not too long ago your CPU would only have one core. Just over a decade ago we saw multicore processors start to gain popularity. We started with dual-core CPUs which gave us a pretty solid boost to performance and quickly graduated to quad-core CPUs. These days hexa-core machines boast six computing cores and give you a lot of bang for your buck. You get improved parallel computing ability which translates to a general improvement in aggregate processing speed.

When I was first assigned the Wagan Tech IonBoost V8 to review, I was a bit hesitant to accept it. It reminded me of the days when my trusty ’89 Accord would die in a parking lot, or on the side of the road, leaving me stranded because I was young and a little bit careless and didn’t own booster cables. I would then be forced to deal with the bitter reality of waiting for relief, or my father, to come bail me out of yet another situation that could easily have been avoided. Essentially, I was hesitant to take on this review because, like with most things in life, I was reminded of all the times my father was right, it IS important to own an emergency pack to help in these situations. Since receiving the battery pack and putting it through its paces, including all the tasks it is capable of completing, I have quickly become an advocate. I feel more comfortable driving anywhere, with the Wagan Tech IonBoost V8 in my car, knowing that I am in control should something happen.
With those nice sentiments aside, read on to find out the real explanation behind my feelings.

In 1979, director Ridley Scott unleashed the sci-fi/horror phenomenon Alien on the world. Since then, the franchise has spawned its share of sequels, novels, comic books, and yes, video games. While Scott's universe has growth, its mythos expanded over time, there's still something very special about the unique, sublime sense of genuine horror so brilliantly preserved in that first film - a feeling that is captured once again in Alien: Isolation.
Whether you have a Mac desktop or laptop, take a look at the ports it offers. There are a bunch of them, and it’s not always practical to have cables sticking out of them all the time, especially if you care about portability and clutter. Belkin’s Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock HD uses the ultra-fast Thunderbolt port standard on Macs and some PCs to pipe in multiple connected devices all at once, making it possible to be plugged in a number of ways with only one Thunderbolt cable.
baby & kids
As a parent, or should I say, as a hippie-at-heart parent, I’m not a fan of technology for small kids. There’s so much stimulus in our world – everything blinks, makes noise and doesn’t last more than three minutes.But...Unfortunately or fortunately, my daughter growing up in different times and my role as a parent is to introduce her to technology and maybe show her how to deal with it all. As much as I would wish it, sheltering your child is not the answer. Technology can be addictive, but exposure to it is inevitable and giving them the tools to manage technology at an early age will help prevent them going bonkers when not supervised and play the PlayStation for 5 days straight (any similarity to any person unintendedJ). Keeping that in mind I always pick some technological toys, with a preference for educational ones. For this particular reason I got quite excited to give my daughter the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch to play with and see what happens…

Hey there. Fitbit fanboy here. It was almost a year ago that I got my Fitbit Force from Future Shop and despite the recall of the Force for causing allergic reactions in some customers, it was only a few weeks ago that I switched back to my Fitbit Flex (it took a full nine months for me to start seeing issues). Two weeks later, we have new Fitbit devices: the Charge, the Charge HR, and the Surge, and dang am I excited. Keep reading, it’s about to get awesome in here.
