Un-Bell-ievable: Why Canada’s Lacking Telecom Market Sucks For Consumers

Un-Bell-ievable: Why Canada’s Lacking Telecom Market Sucks For Consumers

There is no doubt in my mind that there are many Canadians, who, like me, feel cheated by our telecommunications providers. No matter what situation we find ourselves in we always end up getting the short end of the stick. I don’t usually have an issue with the customer service agents; they are generally nice […]

Google Bans Porn for Google Glass!

Google Bans Porn for Google Glass!

Last week came news of the first-ever porn app for Google Glass. Today, the App, Tits & Glass, debuted, allowing users to record themselves having sex from their own perspective. First off, only hours after the App was released, Google shot it down, mainly because they don’t want their glasses to promote POV pornography… and likely because Tits and […]

6 Reasons You Should Buy Google Glasses

Google Glasses are finally here!  Just in time for St Patrick’s Day! Well sort of, seeing as there are only 8,000 copies going out to rigorously selected applicants and they cost $1500 a piece, which means you are likely shit out of luck if you’re looking to pick one up anytime soon.

Spekture: Speed – Sigh Of Relief; The C7 Doesn’t Suck

As an automotive photographer based in America, I reckon I’m obligated to expound a bit on my opinions of the new Chevy Corvette.   After all, it’s an icon.    An American icon.   And probably America’s most well known sports car. But I spent 22 years hating them.   It all started when I […]

Welcome back to the 3rd installment of my analysis of performance cars’ capabilities.

UWO’s HIV Vaccine Phase 1 Clinical Trials PROVE SAFE IN HUMANS

After discussing the initial FDA clearance announcement back when I learned about UWO’s work with the HIV vaccine,  I quickly became aware that many HIV vaccines aren’t cleared all the way through human testing, and get shut down shortly after Phase I. It is for this reason that this new announcement of the success of […]

Specture: Speed – The Best Hypercars As Of 2012

Specture: Speed – The Best Hypercars As Of 2012

What makes a ‘normal’ supercar a proper hypercar? Well, let’s start with the etymology: hyper- a prefix appearing in loanwords from Greek, where it meant “over,” usually implying excess or exaggeration. As opposed to ‘super’, which just means ‘better or greater than’, really. The emerging term ‘hypercar’ can generally be used to describe the type […]

Spekture: Speed – Muscle Cars

Spekture: Speed – Muscle Cars

I don’t care for muscle cars. I don’t get them, and I don’t want one. I don’t care if you wanted one so bad when you were in high school in 1976, and as much as I love all forms of cars I cannot get my head around muscle cars. And never have.

This 2013 Subaru BZR Ad Is Awesome Because Dubstep [Video]

There was once a time when I would go to predrinks with my homie Laura, and ask the group gathered at whichever house we were at if they would be OK with us playing some “dubstep” before switching back to whatever hip-hop/pop they had happened to be listening to.

Facebook Just Changed Your Default E-Mail Settings To Promote Their E-Mail Service

Facebook Just Changed Your Default E-Mail Settings To Promote Their E-Mail Service

This latest action by Facebook is both an unnecessary breach of trust, and a brilliant marketing scheme. Many technology publications (including Gizmodo) reported that Facebook changed everyone’s default e-mail address from whatever personal account they had originally registered with, to the @facebook.com address they “gave” their users many months ago. If you don’t remember being […]

12 Things The 2012 “iPad New” Doesn’t Have, But Should

I’m not a technologist, but Buzzfeed came out with this list of 52 Things The New iPad Still Doesn’t Have, and I was immediately intrigued, because I hate Apple products, but I was also immediately disappointed, because their list is predominantly nonsensical. Some of the points are relevant, but comparably speaking- not very many. Rather […]

Research in Motion Gets No Respect #BBNation

Maybe it was a two day hangover from Music Monday’s at Martini Bar or maybe it’s the fact that I just don’t give a shit about Nokia’s phones.

Make Bikini Pics Look Like Nudes? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT! [Gallery]

Just further proof that iPhone users are perverts. This is just shameful.
