Imagine that you are working on your laptop, editing documents, and surfing the web from the comfort of your living room. Then you get a call from your BFF who wants to meet you for coffee to talk about your upcoming trip together - so of course, you‘re going to take your laptop with you to finish off your packing check list. So you head out the door, but instead of collapsing the screen to the keyboard, you simply remove the screen from the base. Impossible? Not at all! With the ASUS Transformer Pad you can do exactly that since your screen is a fully functioning Android tablet.
If you’ve ever seen a drop dead gorgeous pair of earrings that were clearly hand crafted, or a handbag that looks like nothing you’ve ever laid eyes on in the mall, you’ve probably wondered where it came from. And chances are if you asked they’d tell you it was handmade, which makes it a bit harder to get your hands on. Thankfully, it’s easier than ever to find a unique, one of a kind item, because there’s a wide variety of cool jewelry, handbags, and handcrafted items on BestBuy.ca.
Best Buy sells a number of amazing items from Global Crafts, which is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and the World Fair Trade Organization. The mission of Global Crafts is to offer sustainable, income-generating opportunities to craftspeople and artisans in developing countries, and they follow fair trade practices to provide low-income artisans the ability to rise above poverty. Purchasing a unique item created by the talented craftsman showcased on Global Crafts and now BestBuy.ca is a win-win scenario for everyone.
There’s just something about a Dyson. When I find myself standing in the appliance aisle drooling over the various components of a vacuum, you can bet I’m in front of a Dyson.
You probably know the Dyson brand from their sleek, colourful vacuums, but you may not know they also make hand dryers, fans, and now space heaters. With the weather being both cold (as in can’t-walk-on-the-tile frigid at 7 am) and hot (early afternoon), you really don’t want to turn on the furnace and heat the whole house just yet. That’s why it’s the perfect time of year to test out the Dyson Hot.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve been known to watch MTV’s Cribs. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what the draw is. Maybe I have some innate need to see leather zebra print furniture in its natural habitat, or perhaps my curiosity simply won’t be sated until I know exactly what brand of mustard the average celebrity keeps in his/her fridge. Regardless, it’s like I’m a moth to a flame when it comes to seeing how celebrities live.
If you’ve ever seen Cribs, you know that in addition to animal print furniture and Grey Poupon, one constant in the palatial celebrity home is a home theatre. These rooms typically consist of a digital projector of some sort, a large screen, and a couch (or five). Well, what if I were to tell you that a home theatre is no longer something that is exclusive to celebrities? That you don’t need to devote an entire basement to an intricate theatre system that cost you tens of thousands of dollars?

The way in which the majority of us work today is dramatically different than the way we worked even 15 or 20 years ago. While 20 years may seem like an eternity, when you look at how the average office environment has changed, and how quickly we’ve had to – and continue to – adapt, 20 years is really just a blink of the eye.
