RIP Steve Jobs, We Love The Cool Stuff You Made #isad

Posted October 6, 2011 by Nikki

First my twitter feed went ballistic announcing the unfortunate death of Steve Jobs. Then came the Facebook responses: “OMG NO!”, and “I can’t believe it…” or “Nooooo :(” and even “Man this is tragic” followed by the simple and irreverent “#isad”. A more official commentary on the matter comes from Apple itself in a statement […]

Stevie’s Spin: Apple’s New iPad

Posted March 12, 2012 by Steve

Apple’s new iPad is upon us. Does it deliver? The bar is so astoundingly high for Apple that anything less than jaw-dropping translates to a disappointment. So where does the new iPad fall? When the iPhone 4s was released last October, the upgrades were strong, if predictable, but lacked the titillation we had come to […]

Stevie’s Spin: Is Facebook to Windows as Google+ is to Apple OS X?

Posted September 30, 2011 by Steve

It’s A Social Smackdown Remember when Microsoft ruled the world? Me, neither. But it did. Windows was ubiquitous and while a mainstream user might have had complaints, they were tethered to the giant; the only game in town. There was little motivation to innovate when you had a virtual monopoly. While nerds and artists embraced […]

Waiting For The Revolution: 11 WTF Feminist Items on Etsy

Posted March 7, 2012 by Kristi

Like other formerly misguided and angsty youth in the pre-Twilight days of the 1990’s, I dabbled in Wicca. There’s something funny about Wicca that makes you willing to plunk down your money for literally ANYTHING with a pentacle or pentagram on it. In the early stages, the only theological cred Wicca and other new-agey religions […]

Editor’s Pick: DIY-Addiction To “Remodel This House”

Posted July 10, 2011 by Erika

I have a confession. I am addicted to DIY projects, remodelling shows, websites, and blogs. I wasted my entire first year of university watching TLC religiously. I have never really had the space or time to do a lot of DIY stuff, but I grew up with a Dad who lives for making things out […]

How Steve Jobs Empowered a Generation

Posted October 6, 2011 by Steve

I was in the trenches when D&D and comics were still wedgie-worthy and sci-fi was light-years from trendy. The past decade has seen the advent of the geek, from social misfit and misanthrope in the eyes of mainstream folk, to sexily shy gatekeepers of an arcane world of technology and acronymic web lingo.
