Amazon announced it is creating 3,000 high tech jobs in Vancouver, taking over the redevelopment project of the old downtown Canada Post building. The 416,000 square foot development project has now changed from a mixed-use retail, office, and residential to mixed commercial-only retail and office space. This makes the Amazon’s full time working force in Vancouver 5,000 strong totaling more than 6,000 in Canada. Alternate location arrangements are being made until the new project is completed in 2022.

The Sage universal fit in-ear monitor from $772 from Noble Audio is not your every day audio earpiece. It features two proprietary Knowles balanced drivers per piece that result in a true to life flat accurate sound, suitable for phones or portable amps. It’s meticulously crafted with an aluminium shell and non-twisting pull-out cables, ending in a natural twist to securely fit around each ear. The packaging oozes gifting with a generous supply of earbud adaptors, a small brush to keep the components tidy and a tough weather proof carrying case with a personal engraved metal contact card which helps lost units find themselves home. You can upgrade the Sage fitted with striking one-off universal acrylic pieces (pictured in photo) for $1,028. There are eight in-ear models to pick from, with up to 10 proprietary balanced armature drivers per side like the Kaiser Encore $2,341. For a bit more and several weeks of patience, artist John ”the Wizard” Moulton will fit the Encore in an acrylic customized shell (choice of uploaded custom art work, laser engraving, glow in the dark, 24K gold nugget or wire filament) for $2,700.
