Two Rebels face off: Canon T3i vs. Canon T4i

The Canon Rebel series changed our relationship with DSLR cameras - making it easier for Point-and-Shoot users to produce high quality photos.


The T3i was an instant hit when it was first released in 2011 followed by the June 2012 release of the T4i.


Both are stellar cameras but what are their differences and which model is best for your photography needs?


Get 2 in 1: The Laptop that's also a Tablet!

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.



Fair Trade and hand crafted - Global Crafts - unique items from unique artisans

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.

Keep your house warm and cool with the Dyson Hot Air Multiplier Fan Heater

by Blogger on ‎09-27-2012 05:43 PM - last edited on ‎02-19-2013 04:25 PM by Epic Genius

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.

Sharp 90" LED TV - Bigger is always better

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?

Technology Then & Now – Workplace Edition

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.
