Sometimes I just want to compare two websites side by side without flicking between open tabs. You? Well, ‘Side by Side‘ (formerly 4 Desktops) lets you do that and more.
How it works
Open up the app and you see two panels, side by side (wonder where they got the name for the app….). You can straight away choose between various websites, including a few … Read More
When Apple announced their iPad, the world wasn’t sure what to make of it. In order to fully understand the iPad, you need to realize it’s not meant to be a laptop replacement and it’s not a smartphone–it’s in between.

If you haven’t heard the incredible news, Netflix has officially launched in Canada. They have offered up some of the most aggressive pricing I’ve seen for streaming content–just $7.99/month for unlimited all-you-can-watch.
But there’s a caveat though–there are only about 7000 titles and newer content is still coming. However, there are still hidden gems available–you just have to search for them. For me, I just started watching Mad … Read More

We all know the story. A woman shows up to a party in a beautiful new gown, only to discover another woman wearing the exact same dress.
I’ve never had that experience before with clothing, but I can now say I know how it feels with new tech. Here is what happened.
I found myself hanging out on campus this weekend with a bunch of my peers at a back to … Read More
This week, Telus has launched a new tablet data sharing plan that works with iPad. As many are aware, Rogers and Bell have similar options in place for iPad owners.
The Telus tablet sharing plan works exactly like the Bell and Rogers plans. In order to qualify, you must already have a smartphone with a data plan.
As I’m sure you’ve seen here and on other iOS blogs, iOS 4.2 was released on beta last week with some fanfare. Not surprising, considering it’s the first chance any of us get to play with this major upgrade on the iPad. I won’t bore you with the details of the upgrade [you can find them here], but I want to leave some initial impressions with you about … Read More
