    BURNABY, BC, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Future Shop, Canada's largest retailer and
e-tailer of consumer electronics, announced that it has a new gift finder
resource at www.futureshop.ca to help customers navigate the right gift idea
for all types of people: tech shy, tech flirt, tech social, tech savvy and
tech wild.
    "Many of us research online before we buy and Future Shop is making it
easier with our new web-based gift-o-meter to help customers find the perfect
gift idea for the tech shy to the tech savvy," said Thierry Hay-Sabourin,
Senior Manager, futureshop.ca.

    Gift-o-Meter for Holiday Shopping

    To use Future Shop's gift-o-meter, go to futureshop.ca and simply move
the candy cane themed meter to the appropriate place based on the gift
receiver's level of knowledge with technology. There are five tech levels and
numerous gift selections within each type.

    
      -   Tech shy: for the person that knows how to turn on and off the
          remote but isn't concerned with what the other buttons can do. Gift
          example - Insignia Portable CD Player With Antishock.
      -   Tech flirt: for the person that is interested in a cool iPod and
          not concerned with the specific type. Gift example - Apple 1GB iPod
          shuffle.
      -   Tech social: for the person that is interested in technology
          because they know how it can make life easier. Gift example - Canon
          PowerShot 7.1MP Digital Camera.
      -   Tech savvy: for the person that loves getting the new gadgets and
          the one that friends and family turn to for help with computers and
          Home Theatre systems. Gift example - Garmin Portable GPS Navigation
          System With Bluetooth
      -   Tech wild: for the person that lives, breathes, and dreams about
          technology. Gift example - Hitachi Blu-ray High Definition Hybrid
          Camcorder
