Play Hauler: Aisles of Glory to earn PC Optimum Points

You won’t find this game in any App Store nor will you earn free 500 PC Optimum points anywhere else every day if you practise your hauling skills and play No Frills’ Hauler: Aisles of Glory.

This web-based game truly has no frills, and that’s the idea. In fact it has no fancy animations, high-definition video nor 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound. What you get is a 1980s 8-bit 2D arcade style single player side-scrolling game. But that’s the clever idea behind the grocery chain’s latest marketing campaign. It’s designed for haulers, which they describe “as someone who gets a lot, for less and totally takes pride in the experience.”

 “Every major sport has a video game franchise, so why should hauling be any different?” says Uwe Stueckmann, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Loblaw Companies. “The best haulers aren’t born – they’re made. This game is designed to let them practice before they head to No Frills for an epic haul.”

Duct Tape and Tablets Don’t Mix

Protective gear and proper mounts like iKlip 3 keep your tablets safe and secure

Today, it’s not uncommon to see video being captured on a tablet with high-definition cameras now built-in. However, if you plan on using one to stream Facebook Live, Instagram or collect footage for your next viral YouTube video make absolutely certain it’s properly secured before you hit the record button. I’ve witnessed just one too many examples of people being pumped up, energized and excited capturing the moment only to see enthusiasm hit rock bottom. They watch in horror the slow motion descent of their precious iPad, Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire or other tumbles to the ground and there’s little they can do to stop it.

But don’t let that painful visual deter you. [Read more…]
