Staples Canada's Langley store gave customers a day-long chance to see the latest Windows technology.

Specifically, the Windows Hook Me Up Tour, which began in Langley on April 26, was promoting Photo Fuse, a program that was unveiled in 2009.

The tour is making stops across Canada until June 24 with Windows representatives hosting consumers and joined by Richard Foster, Staples’ regional vice-president of operations.

A 35-foot long trailer offers visitors the opportunity to explore what Windows has to offer your digital lifestyle, including a photo area to try out Photo Fuse part of Windows Live Photo Gallery where you can make your worst photos among your best. Visitors have the chance to win some great prizes including a Windows based PC, and a Staples gift card.

Students will also have the chance to win a shot at up to $10,000 towards their university or college tuition.

"The tour provides a great opportunity for our customers to see all the benefits of Windows,” said Foster. Everyone who attends the tour stops will receive a pair of sunglasses and an exclusive offer on a Windows PC from Staples.
