Have you tried The Walking Dead? It's one of the best tablet games if you enjoy a story. Controls work really well on the tablet.

I just tried this and it totally works! Definitely one of the coolest things I've seen in a while.
Easy HTML5 parallax images!

Depthy ( is pretty darn amazing - it extract depth map info from photos made with Google Camera's Lens Blur and generates a smooth HTML5-based accelerometer driven parallax image from it. So easy! And with mobile support too! Are the days of static images finally numbered? :)

The source code is also online on GitHub ( Amazing project and great job +Rafał Lindemann!

Some great changes in this release. Hooray for smaller apps by default!
AngularDart just got even better: You no longer need to include @MirrorsUsed in your code to limit the size of dart2js output.

In addition to being easier to deploy and having a truly awesome codename (, this version of AngularDart represents some very impressive work by numerous people -- and a few of my own hacks. Very cool to see this getting into the hands of more people!  #dartlang   #angulardart

Pricey pizza but very tasty! We eat here all the time. If you're downtown, I suggest ordering from this location as we've been disappointed by the Kingsway one (hair in our pizza!), but have never had any issues with the Strathcona location.

Fresh tasty Thai. A little pricey but very good. They can be slow with large orders or on nights when the kitchen is busy. Don't go if you're starving and need a quick meal.

Very helpful staff. I have not been to the store itself, but have called to ask questions about the items in their catalog. The sales woman who answered was very knowledgeable, and helped me track down an artist who's art was featured, even though the don't carry the work shown.

I was really impressed by these guys. Would use them again. I had them out to install my new Nest thermostat, as I was hoping to use it with our humidifier. Boy was I glad I called! The service person arrived on time, and stayed for the window scheduled. He knew what he was doing, and had obviously installed the Nest before as he walked me through all the potential gotchas and costs before getting started. After discussing, we decided it wasn't worth the $400-500 to run wires and setup the humidity control, even though he would've made more money doing so. He stayed until it was installed, connected to the internet, and working the way I needed. Another nice note about the service person was that he removed his shoes in the house without being asked. You'd be surprised how many service people don't do that!
