Google Maps: Pokemon Challenge

Google Chromebook Pixel 

- The only non-Apple computer I would buy

TODAY ON THE INTERNET://19

Facebook and Google help us remember…


Facebook added a handy button to the top of everyone’s timelines. Click it, and see the important things (that you shared online) that happened over the last 12 months!

Seeing these moments back to back is kinda crazy…

And Google released “Zeitgeist 2012” a compilation of videos, photos, and events that were significant to our culture this year. 

APPLE 23.10.12 EVENT: iPad Mini 
Much like the iPhone5 event,  this is the announcement that everyone was expecting, but for some reason still seemed to be unsure of. What is it? Just a smaller version of something that already exists. A device meant to directly compete with tablets from Samsung and Google. It’s an iPad, for people that thought the iPad was too big…so…my mom. This was made for my mom. I’m more interested in how this upgrades their line of products. Notice how there is no OG iPad on there? Yeah, that’s bad news for a guy like me, who is still perfectly happy with my first version of this great product.

Eisenberg worked as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, so who’s to say Kutcher can’t be the CEO of Apple?

Quest in your region [here

Another reason why Vimeo > YouTube
(but I will probably always be anchored to Google…)

INTERNET ON STRIKE!

In 30mins I’ll be joining the STRIKE TO STOP SOPA (internet censorship bill).

*EDIT* If you can read this, it means the blackout javascript isn’t working. I’ve been having difficulties with it :(


I know it doesn’t mean much, coming from a tiny blog like mine. And the fact that I’m Canadian protesting an American act. But every person needs to help out in any way they can, even if it’s just spreading the word.

With companies like Google, Mozilla, WordPress, Minecraft, Wikipedia, and Reddit protesting by shutting down for the day you have to recognize that this is serious.

Want to join the protest? CLICK [HERE]
Not from America? CLICK [HERE]

STAY INFORMED!!!

[ 10million Google+ Users ]

It’s already the fastest growing social network, wow! I’ll admit I haven’t been paying that much attention to it, either because I’ve been super busy or because I’m unable to do things like link my tweets or blog feed to my +profile yet. Gimme some API options and I’ll be all over it!

1. MAY 21 = RAPTURE
Have you guys been following this group called Family Radio? They claim that they’ve found evidence to support the theory that armageddon will happen THIS MONTH (on the 21st to be exact). Now, you should know me by now, and know that I don’t buy into this. I hold these guys on the same level as the Westboro group; a bunch of loud people claiming to be Christians. I for one believe we should live like the world will end tomorrow, but I will be praying and loving extra hard just in case people get crazy on the 21st.

2. HAPPY BDAY MB

*EDIT*
5. ASHTON KUTCHER REPLACES SHEEN
Kutcher just signed to “Two and a Half Men”, his first sitcom since “That 70’s Show”
Hopefully this will be the final nail in the coffin for all this Charlie Sheen nonsense.

I still can’t get over this…
This guy has my name, lived in the same area as me, and may or may not have even studied at the same college! How crazy is that! Now he lives in Montana, I friend-requested, and even emailed to make contact…but no response. If you Google his  my  our name you’ll find him on his Church directories website. 
Google your name and share what you find…[submit] 
*UPDATE*He emailed me back! He didn’t attend the same college (left Wpg early and attended Briarcrest in SK) but still w00t there’s another me out there!

BATMAN 3 EDITION

1. Riddler to be next Villain?
It’s rumored that Joseph Gordon Levitt (Tommy from 3rd Rock, or the “nerdy” guy from Inception) will be playing The Riddler in Nolan’s next comic adaptation. In my books, the only villain/actor teamup that could come after Ledgers amazing Joker performance.

2.  Nolan says “NO” to Batman 3D
This is a breath of fresh air; a director with a strong head on his shoulders making decisions for the film instead of for Hollywood. After reading this article (click link below) check out article #3…
