If you've been paying attention then you know that SIDEKICK recently missed our launch date for Composer. While that sucked, upon reflection it really was nothing more than the equivalent of sinking to the bottom of the pool after trying something on our own.

This is an incredibly important issue and one worthy of as many blog posts, phone calls and letters that we can muster. If ...More you read must! »

Not just because green brings out my ...More you read must! »

SIDEKICK simplifies any web application with interactive, voice-guided Walkthroughs.

Dr.Cohen is excellent. He knows his stuff and has helped me immensely with both correcting an old injury and helping me maintain a strong back and shoulders. He genuinely cares about his patients and I highly recommend him if you're looking for a chiropractor and/or physiotherapist.

The BEST Middle Eastern food in the city. Fresh bread, crispy fries, fresh meat, great Hummus and all-round awesome salads. There are a few things to be said for their service being a little slow sometimes but it's usually because they are rammed with people and the staff are actually incredibly nice. Go there. Support them. Enjoy it.
