If you're looking for a tasty snack this April 20th, Pizza Pizza has your back with its new weed-themed pizza treat. The pizza chain's new "pre-rolls," released in honour of 4/20, are available in three flavours: 'Pepperoni,' 'Veggie' and, because of course, 'Pineapple Express.' Obviously, these Pizza Pocket-like treats don't actually feature marijuana or cannabis-infused ingredients and instead are a clever play on the concept of pre-rolls -- weed that's already rolled into a joint. What a time to be alive. Image credit: Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza pre-rolls cost $3.79 each and are available at ..read more

Back in 2022, Telus fired a B.C. employee for using the N-word in a training course. This was taken to arbitration, where it was ruled that the carrier was justified in firing the employee, according to Coast Reporter. “The assertion that he did not realize that the use of the N-word and the acronym would cause offence to most reasonable people demonstrates a startling and troubling lack of insight,” labour arbitrator and mediator Koml Kandola said in a release on March 27th. Telus fired the employee, Kelly Tomes, for the inappropriate comments used during a training course for newly hired em ..read more

Bimmy, the first Apple-approved Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) emulator for the iPhone and iPad, hit the App Store earlier today, but it was very quickly pulled. According to MacRumors, Tom Salvo, Bimmy's developer, removed the app from the App Store on their own accord. "No one reached out to me pressuring me to remove it," said Tom Salvo in a recent MacRumors forum post. "But I'd rather not have the risk." It's unclear if the "risk" Salvo mentions is tied to Apple or potential legal action from Nintendo. The Japanese gaming giant has a history of being very litigious when it comes to e ..read more

YouTube is strengthening its enforcement of third-party apps, specifically ad-blocking apps on mobile. Those using these third-party apps to block ads may see buffering issues or an error that reads, "the following content is not available on this app" when watching a video. Google says it doesn't allow these third-party apps to turn off ads because it prevents creators from being rewarded for viewership. Ads on YouTube support creators, and if you want an ad-free experience YouTube allows third-party apps to use its API and follow its API Services Terms of Service; however, any app that viol ..read more

Gaming furniture often adopts a specific aesthetic, and while Ikea's new BRÄNNBOL collection definitely features that look™ to some extent, it also still manages to look genuinely cool at the same time. The new line features 20 items in total, including a wall-mounted cabinet, an ergonomic lounge chair, a transformable basket and my personal favourite, a rolling kart that's perfect for video game controllers (I'm definitely buying this one), and more.

It feels crazy to write this, but 4TB SD cards are on the way and could be available as early as next year. Yes, that's TB, as in terabyte. As in 1,000GB. Four of them in one itty-bitty SD card. That's pretty crazy, but Western Digital showed off the SanDisk Extreme Pro 4TB SD card at the NAB Show in Las Vegas ahead of its not-to-distant 2025 launch. The cards are designed for cameras and laptops with a focus on high-red video, such as 8K. AnandTech reports that the SD card uses the Ultra High Speed-I (UHS-I) interface, which enables up to 104MB/s data transfers in its UHS104 (SDR104) mo ..read more

Apple's MacBook Air with an M1 chip 8-core CPU is available at the Source for $500 off. The 'Gold' and 'Space Gray' colours are available at a discounted rate of $799.99. Typically, these laptops are available for $1,299.99, so this is a pretty solid deal. Unfortunately, these look to be out of stock online, but might be available at your local store. Apple discontinued the M1 MacBook Air early last month, so it makes sense that we'll be seeing these changes in price. The M1 MacBook Air launched in November of 2020 as one of Apple's first silicon Macs. Source: The Source MobileSyrup utilizes ..read more

Apple dropped a new ad dubbed 'Goodbye Leather' to highlight the company's elimination of leather in accessories for its products like the iPhone. However, the ad comes as the company faces significant criticism over the new 'FineWoven' material it started using in place of leather. The iPhone maker's big focus with the launch of FineWoven alongside the iPhone 15 series was the environment, with the company touting the new material's lower carbon footprint. Apple said FineWoven uses 68 percent post-consumer recycled content and that it would be the material going forward as the company phased ..read more
