In Canada (this part, anyway) we refer to the grill as a bbq. I have a Weber BBQ sitting out on my deck. I looked at a Napoleon, very, very nice, but also very very expensive. I have respect for the charcoal heads, but I love the convenience of my natural gas bbq.

I can't stand that Samsung takes so long to update the Android OS, that really bugs me. This is a huge issue with Android. Manufacturers and Carriers all want to put their dirty fingers into Android, software skins, bloatware/crapware, you name it, so updates don't get rolled out at the same time (...

Let's just get one thing clear: The fact a smartphone is a "phone" is somewhere down the list, in fact making calls has become so secondary that cell providers are giving minutes away and charging mostly for data.

Congrats Murray, from a fellow SMF old-timer. How things have changed... Back then MWF was 'just discovered' and had to be ordered from Wool retailers in England. There were only a handful of vendors and none of them carried all of the popular shave products we now take for granted. If you were Cana...

RIM announced today a launch date of January 30 for the BlackBerry 10. If I weren't so delighted with my iPhone 5, I'd certainly wait for that event and the user reviews that will immediately follow. Sneak peeks and leaked reports are already giving this phone very high marks. Its web browser, for ...

I'm all ready for winter with snow tires, 4x4, and a new snowblower/tractor. Problem is, we don't have any snow. Yet. As for snow tires and rims, I ordered from tirerack.com in the US. Even with shipping/duty/etc., it STILL works out cheaper than buying up here. I bought myself a set ready-mounted o...

Kent BK brushes are the only brush I've ever owned that consistently do not shed. I've had 3 BK4s and 1 BK8 and the quality has been great on all of them.
