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.
If you've ever had to frantically repack/rearrange the stuff in your bags at the airport (or even throw a few things out) to get everything under the weight limit, then you know just how stressful it can be to fly without knowing all of the little rules and regulations that the airlines have. It is absolutely crucial not only to know details like your airline's luggage weight limits or the allowable baggage dimensions for a carry-on bag, but to proactively prepare to handle these situations in advance--before you ever arrive at the airport! I personally have had to rearrange bags after placing them on the scale when trying to drop them off (my checked luggage), and, if it hasn't happened to you, believe me, it's NO fun at all! And that's why I'm posting this blog--to help you avoid this situation! Read on to learn about the baggage rules on our two national airlines and a few product suggestions that will help you to fly hassle free.

There’s a movement afoot just about everywhere to make things more accessible to everyone. That’s a great thing in a lot of cases… but when it comes to artisan tools it’s not. Making things hyper-accessible can mean making them less powerful, and it takes a brave manufacturer to say “no, we want to make something incredible for a small group of people.” That manufacturer is Fujifilm, and that camera is the Fujifilm X-T1.
I have had a lot of fun over the past few weeks talking about kitchen design, appliances and entertaining. Today I thought I'd put together twenty of my favourite products for the ultimate designer holiday gift guide.
You’ve heard it said so often before, that it’s the little things that can make such a difference. That is true in life, and in cooking. One of the simplest ways to improve your cooking is to make sure you are cooking with the right tools. I’ve compiled a list of some of the essential tools that can give you a leg up in the kitchen.
‘Tis the season to be dining, Fa la la la la, la la la la!
During the upcoming holiday season, you’ll be raising a glass many times at dinner parties, whether as a host or as a guest. But before you send or reply to those invitations, let’s review some basic rules of etiquette so you don’t inadvertently act like a turkey!
