IPTorrents

Probably the best Torrent site on the web. This tracker is invite only and contains a solid amount of content. Strong filters to help a user find what they want much more easily. Many of the torrents are supported by Seedboxes, so very quick download rates on nearly all files. The only downside is that since this site is private, it has a ratio and for most non seedbox users, it can be difficult to match download with upload.

IPTorrents also has a credit system for people who seed multiple torrents (keeping torrents alive in other words). With those earned credits, a user can gain upload bandwidth.

A great place to get computer parts. Cheaper than Bestbuy/Futureshop. Similar to Newegg Canada. I've been buying from the Ajax location over the last few years and have had no major issues. Like most tech places, you should know what you want to get. I would also advise you to not base a purchase on what the associates suggest. They tend to push the items that they have in great quantity, versus quality.

Completed the "24223 Study" offer for 100 points and the points did not register. It says in the description to register, then click the activation link in an email that is sent. All this was done. Returned to the site and no credit. The site has no recognition of the offer other than the initial link it gives you. I used an unimportant email for this scam.

In order to download any the magazines, it sends you to what looks like a normal file sharing site. However it will automatically say that you've downloaded enough from the site (even though I've never downloaded anything from it) and must register (pay) in order to download the file. This seems like a fake download site with the main purpose of getting money from people, since it has no free way to get the file.

I enjoy how almost all sites across the internet have facebook built in. So if you like something, you can share it to your wall. Something simple as this can turn the facebook news feed into an show of interests among friends. Though this is not a central part of my life, its something nice to go along with it.

One of the best torrent sites around. I do still tend to use torrent crawlers (places like torrentz and isohunt), however this site tends to have a solid amount of content.

This site is a good way to catch up on TV shows that you may have missed. It is fairly up to date and is well built.
AVAST Software

I've been using the Avast free edition since maybe 2002 -03(so a decade now). Back then I was looking for a version that would run on Windows 98, 2000, and i think XP (it was many different computers. I tried both AVG and Avast. AVG had a hard time with windows 98, while Avast worked smoothly across all of them. I have since ran Avast on all of my computers and suggest it to family if they are in need of an antivirus. None of the computers in my home have had any virus for about a decade now. We do web surf and download a lot, so Avast has definitely had its work cut out. I will continue using this software as long as its free.

I have bought various items from the site over the last year or two. In Canada, this is the best online store for computer parts. The only competition I could find was maybe a local Canada Computers (however the prices are a bit higher). If you can manage to find free shipping or you group together a lot of purchases, then newegg has a better overall price. I've built/repaired/upgraded a few computers using parts from newegg, very few of them were defective (defective products are always a possibility).

Bought a 56$ tablet and it worked for just over 1 month (the warranty on the site is 1 month for everything). They refused to give me a refund. After a long process of many forum threads and a long help ticket (totalling 10-15 responses), I then made a long descriptive post in the forums called Bad Experience (it was a second post, the first post was before I got into contact with ChinaBuye).

They deleted my newest post which outlined how they refused to make any exception due to the horrible product and the fact that I'm a new customer and this would shatter any trust I'd have with them. They also banned my forum account so that I couldn't respond to anyone else who ran into similar problems.

I've also noticed that they do not post bad reviews, I made a review for the tablet and how it barely survived 4 weeks. It was under my account (and still is) but doesn't show up among the reviews for the product itself (when a person is considering a purchase).
