New Blog! Canadian Electronics & Tech Deals Blog

I’m delighted to announce that Smart Canucks now has a new blog that will be dedicated to technology and electronics deals.

The new blog will be run by my friend David and me. Deals in the electronics and tech world change pretty fast and you’ll notice that good deals will expire in a day or two if not hours. So make sure you visit more frequently and if you come across a good deal please do let us know!

We’d also love to get your feedback and comments. What would you like to see in the new tech deals blog? How can we make it better?

SmartCanucks.ca Commenting System Fixed :-)


The blog’s commenting system is now up and running again 🙂

We tried to recover as many lost comments as possible. If your comment still doesn’t show I’m sorry you’ll have to post it again. Things are working perfectly fine now.


Problem with SmartCanucks Commenting System (Fixed)


If you’ve left a comment on one of the posts here on SmartCanucks.ca and it hasn’t shown I’m very sorry about that. For some reason, most comments are getting marked as spam even if they’re not. I’m working on fixing this right now.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update: Problem still not fixed. Sorry guys

Update2: Commenting system fixed 🙂

J’aimerais vous inviter à visiter le nouveau blog français de SmartCanucks.

Je m’appelle alajen et je vais essayer de remplir cette nouvelle section de belles offres, coupons et échantillons gratuits (freebies) pour partager avec nos amis francophones. Je suis un nouveau parent et j’adore mon bébé (comme tous les parents). Mes passe-temps préférés sont: 1) sauver de l’argent, et 2) aider d’autres gens à sauver de l’argent. Je recherchais des bons-rabais quand j’ai découvert le site Smart Canucks et maintenant je suis contente de contribuer sur le blog français.

Pour commencer, je vais afficher au moins une nouvelle offre par jour.

N’hésitez pas de me contacter avec toute commentaire ou suggestion pour améliorer cette section.

Amusez-vous bien!


Sorry for the Downtime


Sorry for the Downtime

Our host has been having some technical problems. We apologize for the downtime.

Things will hopefully be back to normal very soon on Smart Canucks.


Countdown to Christmas on SmartCanucks


When it’s 50 days to Christmas (November 5th I believe), I’ll post an interesting video, picture or commentary  each day for all of us to enjoy 🙂 It may funny, nostalgic, weird, dramatic or whatever!

The ideas will be contributed by members of the forum, blog readers or other bloggers. If you have an interesting submission or would like to contribute please email me your idea to [email protected] If you’re a blogger I’ll add a link back to your blog when I publish your Christmas post.

As for the SmartCanucks.ca blog in general, I’d love to get suggestions on what you’d like to see on the blog. What do you like? what do you hate about the blog? Suggestions are more than welcome 🙂

Congratulations Jim Squires!


Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl!

Congratulations Jim Squires!

This new little Baby Girl so tiny small and neat
And especially magic makes your family complete
No words could ever relay or truly express
The wishes sent for you at this time of happiness
She′s shining an Angel with a tiny sweet nose
So completely made up ten fingers, ten toes
She′s laughter and teardrops so small and brand new
And amazingly angelic and she′s sent to bless you
She′s one special Baby the best of life′s treasure
And she′ll surely bless you loving family pleasure.

Here’s what Jim had to say on his blog:

Lot’s of new baby photos on my wife’s flickr if you’re into that sort of thing.

EDIT: We’ve actually decided against Virginia. She’s had the name for two days and it just didn’t seem to fit. Plus, people are already giving her annoying nicknames that we don’t approve of like “Ginny.” The official name (we’ve already written it on the Health Card app, so there’s no going back now) is Emily Jennifer Jane.


Payphones now 50 cents


bell_payphone_7up.jpg

Just a heads up for the next time you forget your cell phone at home. As of last week, the cost of a local call on a Bell Canada payphone is 50 cents. I think it’s safe to assume that other payphone companies will follow.

It’s a been a long time coming — not only has there not been an increase in payphone costs since 1981 (back then they were a dime) but competition from mobile phones has pretty much rendered the standard payphone obsolete. They’re really only there for the small percentage of the population that hasn’t gone cellular yet and for when the rest of us forget our mobile devices on the charger at home.

In a different age I could see a lot of people getting bent out of shape about this, but really – does anyone care that the cost of a phone call has doubled?

The Blog’s new look


I just finished upgrading the blog and I also changed the template. The new template has two sidebars instead of one so there’s more space for for adding other useful stuff in the sidebars 🙂

During the upgrade I lost about 10 comments from the last two days. I’m terribly sorry about that. It was purely unintentional.

Please let me know what you think of the new design and what you’d like to see in the sidebars 🙂
