History Of Rap 3 →
The best one yet (though I’ll admit I’m only saying that because I knew most of the songs this time). Also happens to be the best thing Fallon’s ever done. Granted, that isn’t really saying much.
GoldenEye 007 : Reloaded →
Refined. Recharged. Reloaded. Yeah, but does it have local multiplayer like my N64? Cause if so my excitement levels just quadrupled.
It's Called a Teapot →
The English have been using them for centuries. So have the Chinese. It’s not fucking rocket science. Is it seriously so complicated to pour hot water into a teapot? Do you really need to automate the process? God, no wonder Merlin got fed up with Lifehacker. This shit is getting ridiculous.
Coca-Cola Red Cans Turn Arctic White →
This packaging is absolutely stunning, right up there with the new Diet Coke redesign. I just hope we get them up in Canada (or I manage to snag a case while I’m in the US)
Our Mayor Makes "The Daily What" →
Yup. We’ve officially become international news because our mayor is such a f**king idiot. And don’t get me started on his spokesman brother. Stop sending your brother out to fight your battles Rob. Stand up for yourself. And for the love of God, don’t piss off the CBC.

Another angle on skeuomorphs →
I’m not entirely against using Skeuomorphs in our designs. I do it too. Without being able to use textures and fake 3D it would quickly get boring. But maybe something to keep in mind: Using Skeuomorphs on desktop screens are wayless problematic than on tablets or phones because on desktops you don’t touch it with your finger and you mostly keep a straight angle. There’s been a lot of...
It's Official: Rogers is the worst ISP in the... →
Turns out Rogers is officially the world’s worst internet throttler based on research derived from the initiative known as the Measurement Lab (MLab), backed by Google. Results of the study reveal that based out of all the internet providers on earth, Rogersthrottles internet more than any other ISP out there, notes TorrentFreak. As we’ve covered before in the past, internet speeds mean a lot to...
Three Days. →
Appalling. A student at an Ohio high school who beat “the holy living crap” out of a gay classmate inside a classroom was suspended for all of three days. If you would like to reach out to the school, Dan Savage has posted contact info on Slog. I insist everyone go ahead and do so. In a world where teenagers, even children are committing suicide over bullying its not enough for a...

I agree about every single one of these. Except for the flavoured Tootsie Rolls. Those are actually really delicious.
"It's the little differences..." →
Apple has made some very subtle updates to the visual design for iOS 5. These are details so minor it’s amazing anyone even noticed them, and yet, they make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the OS.
Michael Jackson Tribute Performance by Cirque du... →
Continuing to rub in my face the fact that I missed out on floor seats to this incredible show… Bart Simpson was right! Show business is a hideous bitch-goddess.

See You Soon →
The new Coldplay album comes out today, but rather than posting a song from that (since I haven’t had time to sit and listen to it yet) I’m posting this incredibly beautiful live performance of one of Coldplay’s finest (and least known) songs of all time. And yes, it’s dedicated to a special certain someone… who will never see this blog post.
Anonymous asked: Yes, Mr. Mayer is a fantastic writer and Steve Jobs is on my "Deadman Ugh" list, right now. : ( What a slap in the face, after such a good tribute, to have this book come out on Monday, saying what he said about John. Bet Mr. Mayer would have kept his typing fingers off the keyboard, had he known.
John Mayer on Steve Jobs →
I used to think that when you died, everything you ever learned and amassed along the way in your life just stopped existing, all of it returned into the universe and repurposed for something else completely. Steve’s passing made me realize that can’t be true, because every bit of energy and intellect he spent his life to collect is still here with us, as vital as it was when it was with him. I...
Expert Says Michael Jackson Could Not Have Killed... →
Los Angeles district attorneys prepared to wrap up their case in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray on Thursday. An expert on the drug propofol, which killed Michael Jackson, told the court there was only one way a deadly amount of the anesthetic could have wound up in his system: through doses administered by Murray, who was his physician. Continuing his testimony from...

People can say all they want, but the man was a genius and touched millions of lives. Also, it looks like Coldplay was there. Which is awesome.

There Is No Electric Guitar. →
Michael Winslow (the sound effects guy from Police Academy) on Senkveld med Thomas og Harald performing Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin. Just remember: there’s no electric guitar there.
The Most Relaxing Song Ever →
It slows your breathing and reduces brain activity to such an extent that Weightless, written by Manchester band Marconi Union, is said to be the ’most relaxing song ever’. The eight-minute track is so effective at inducing sleep, motorists have now been warned they should not listen to it whilst driving. The band worked with sound therapists to get advice on how to make the most...

Few topics rankle the feathers of the video game enthusiast these days quite like that of pre-order bonus content. Whether it’s lamenting the excising of content from a game for the sake of releasing it later as a bonus (or paid DLC), offering unlocks for content that’s already on the disc, or tossing so many confusing, bizarre options out there that invariably, everyone is going to...

I wonder if he knew how poignent this would one day become, and how perfectly each line applied to himself.

"Hi, this is Steve. I really want my phone back." →
“I appreciate you had your fun with our phone and I’m not mad at you, I’m mad at the sales guy who lost it. But we need the phone back because we can’t let it fall into the wrong hands.” I thought, maybe its already in the wrong hands? He continued, “There are two ways we can do this. I can send someone to pick up the phone–” Me: “I...
Steve Jobs Unveils the iPad →
The iPhone was just the prelude to Jobs’ final masterpiece. The iPad. When it was unveiled it was mocked: “What a silly name.” “It’s just a big iPod Touch.” “Overprice Apple garbage. Who’d want one of those?” Two years later and its the hottest selling consumer electronics device on the market. I remember the day it was announced I kept...
Steve Jobs Unveils the Original iPhone →
We’ve got three revolutionary new products today. The first one is a widescreen iPod with touch controls. The second is a revolutionary mobile phone. And the third is a breakthrough internet communications device… These are not three separate devices. These are one device. And we are calling it iPhone. These are one device. I’ll never forget those words. I’ll never...
Stay hungry. Stay foolish. →
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Stay hungry. Stay foolish. Clearly, he lived by his own words.

I mean really, who thought that Turkey-Gravy Brown (with sickly green accents) would make a good colour for an MP3 player?
Tim Cook's Company Wide Email →
No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward....
Steve Jobs (1955-2011) →
He was a true visionary. A true innovator. A true genius. He revolutionized the way we think about computers and technology. He will be a tough act to follow, but an inspiration to all that follow in his footsteps. He will be greatly missed. So long Steve. Thank you for everything.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all...– Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

Keep Works in the Public Domain Public →
Believe it or not, copyright was invented to encourage creativity, not stifle it. The public domain is a key part to ensuring this happens. Disney made its bread and butter off of the PD, despite being among the worst copyright trolls out there. Keep the public domain public!
Disney Ramping Up 3D Toon Re-Releases →
Disney has seen the 3D light following the success of its re-release of The Lion King in the extra dimension, announcing today limited theatrical releases for four more of its animated films: Beauty and the Beast (January 13, 2012), Pixar’sFinding Nemo (September 14, 2012) and Monsters, Inc.
