Should you get an Apple Watch? It’s a question of “WANT” vs. “NEED”.

“WHO WOULD PAY $10,000 FOR A TINY IPHONE?” – If you’re asking yourself that, you’re asking the wrong question.

 
Today’s the day, everyone. Apple watch Day. The day we fanboys, tech heads, and early adopters have all had our alerts to tell us about the second it came. No, I’m not talking about Keynote announcement day, or pre-order day, or even launch day. No, I’m talking about the holiest of holy days in the Appleverse.
I’m talking about review day.

Who is “Big Vaping”: a small slice of the e-cigarette misinformation war

Earlier today, Vox put out an article titled “How Big Vaping is misinforming the public about e-cigarettes“. In it, the author attempts to paint the growing grassroots vaping movement with the same brush as Big Tobacco. Unlike most online news sources, Vox doesn’t have a comment section directly below their articles, so I’m posting this here. The quotes are from the original article.
It’s also Saturday morning, and I haven’t had my coffee yet…
While the state campaign reminds its citizens that all the Big Tobacco companies also own e-cigarette companies, the …

Satanists to Toronto: FORD MORE YEARS

A satanic church known as the Cloven Path Ministry is here at Fan Expo extolling the virtues of Toronto’s mayor in an effort to get him back in office for another term.
The centerpiece of their booth is a 6-foot tall golden idol of the corpulent magistrate holding a crack pipe and looking decidedly pleased with himself.
Says Pastor Morgan Wilkes, when the idol was unveiled on Friday, it created a “psychic overflow; a miracle so big, it could not be contained.”
“[Rob Ford] echoes the accolades of what this ministry is about: …

Bionic Antboy webcomic

Shameless self-promotion time. Bionic Antboy is a weekly web comic that originally started out as a video game idea a long time ago. Since The Practical Dead is in an on-again/off-again state of flux, I started working on Antboy when time afforded it. Now, with 4 months worth of pages under my belt, and more pages already in the can, it’s probably a good time to share it.

If this is October then there must be undead in Toronto

It’s October again, which means, for Toronto, a whole lot of undead happenings.  Beside the Toronto Zombie Walk (and Halloween Parade), two great live horror film adaptations return to Hogtown. At Fan Expo 2013, we had a chance to talk for a few moments with Christopher Bond and Mike “Nug” Nahrgang about their involvement with the upcoming productions of both “Evil Dead the Musical” and “Night of the Living Dead Live“.
After that is a bonus interview that was originally recorded at Fan Expo 2012, and thought to be lost when we had a hard …

The Practical Dead

This post is both a shameless self-promotion and an explanation of sorts. Over the past while, the site has been quieter than usual. While there’s still more to come from Fan Expo, and we’ll still be writing other pieces, a lot of time has gone into another endeavour – The Practical Dead. It’s a new web comic written and drawn by myself and RGB’s own Rebel Scum. What is The Practical Dead you ask?

Nokia impresses at MWC with 41 megapixel PureView 808

Nokia, which has long held the crown as ‘best camera on a phone’ with their 12 megapixel N8 today upped the ante with the announcement of their PureView 808 phone. The phone will ship with a custom 1/1.2″ sensor, much larger than most smartphone cameras. While this leads to a noticable hump on the back, the results make up for it, as it sports a 41 megapixel sensor, enabling it to capture images up to 38 megapixels in size.
