When Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet, running Windows 8 Pro, was released about 2 weeks ago, there was little fanfare surrounding its gaming capabilities. Most of the news and advertisements showed the tablet running your typical touch screen games like Angry Birds. However, since the tablet runs a full Windows operating system, as opposed to the watered down Windows RT surface tablets that came out a few months ago, we decided to pick one up and try running a few desktop games on it.

Of course you do! So during ArenaNet’s stress test today, we decided to stress test our Macbook. Continue reading
Just over a decade ago, the white earbuds were a fashion statement thanks to the silhouette iPod ads. Now in 2012 the once popular white earbuds are a sign of being cheap for not buying better headphones. Apple seems to finally realize this with their most recent patent for a unibody earbud design which may be included with the upcoming iPhone 5s.
Scrapbooking doesn’t have to be all glue, glitter and paper cuts in the digital age. In fact, a lot of the current tablets and smart phone have apps that let you do some amazing things with the photos you own. I personally tried one for the iPad and the BlackBerry PlayBook. Memorable and embarrassing moments were enhanced in just a few tabs.
The two scrapbook apps that I tried are both fantastic so there’s no excuse not to at least try one of them Continue reading
Poor Microsoft Windows – Much like Madonna, it was once the queen of operating systems and is now the butt of all jokes. This time, amongst the hundreds of fan parodies out there of the Google Project Glass video, we now get the answer to the question no one asked – What is Microsoft made their own augmented reality glasses?

Putting their own social networking site Google+ to work, the internet giant unveiled a “Project Glass” web page on the site showing off the new prototypes for their augmented reality Google Glasses project.

Good news for those of you who may have bought a $20 voucher for 2 bikini laser hair removal treatments from Groupon which expired before you could use it – You can now get a refund, but only if you bought it in the US. Groupon, the group coupon internet company, has agreed to settle a class action law suit in California alleging that expiration dates on their coupons were illegal. Continue reading
I’ve got to give it to Google. No matter how ridiculous their April Fool’s jokes are, they are well produced and usually have a functional component. One of this year’s jokes is regarding an NES port of Google Maps (with an amazing homage to Dragon Quest II). Continue reading
Tomorrow, March 31st, at 8:30PM local time, you’re encouraged to turn off your lights for an hour. Do it! Last year was somewhat disappointing in Toronto with very few businesses shutting off in the downtown core. I’m confident that we’ll do better this year.
