Usually when a company is developing new innovative tech, it will direct inquiring journalists to its research in the field or previous announcements (Samsung proudly announced its work on emded package-on-package memory before it’s rumoured inclusion in the next Galaxy Note).

  • Toronto Kijiji apartment rental scam leaves woman without 2 months rent

    A Toronto woman says she was scammed out of $1,500 worth of rent this weekend by a man pretending to be a doctor, and that she's since found out the culprit has done this to others as well. Tika Simone says she used Kijiji to find the apartment in a private duplex near Jarvis Street and Gerrard Street East in downtown Toronto and negotiated with a man who called himself Dr. Zaki.  Simone said the man claimed to be a doctor at nearby St. Michael's Hospital and an owner of several rental properties. Simone agreed to rent the studio apartment for $750 per month, with everything included, which she admits seemed like "a steal." In her eagerness to score the apartment, Simone agreed to pay Dr. Zaki the first- and last-month's rent up front, in cash, and didn't sign an application form.

  • Is Canada heading into recession? | Toronto Star

    Will Canada be deep in recession when we vote in the federal election this fall? Since the post-2008 Great Recession, Stephen Harper’s primary focus on energy (oil/gas) economic action strategies have painted our economic flexibilities into a corner. Interest rates are now .05 per cent. We are on the precipice of falling financially/economically into quicksand recessionary territory.

  • Initial autopsy finds no clear cause of Brown's death; experts say time is an enemy in case

    Medical examiners performing an autopsy on Bobbi Kristina Brown said Monday their initial findings turned up no obvious cause of death, while experts said the months that have passed since Brown was found face-down in a bathtub are working against authorities now tasked with solving how she died. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office said in a statement Monday afternoon that it will likely be several weeks before it can rule on a manner and cause of death for the 22-year-old daughter of Whitney Houston. The agency said its initial autopsy turned up "no significant injuries" or "previously unknown medical conditions." It said the next step is ordering lab tests and issuing subpoenas for documents — most likely Brown's hospital records.

  • You Don’t Look Like You Think You Do, Says Science

    According to new research from scientists at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Australia, people are so bad at picking a good likeness of their own face, strangers actually make more accurate selections. While a person looking ‘unrealistic’ in their Facebook profile picture may not present much of a problem, this could be a major issue when choosing a photo for official documents such as a passport. Photo ID is the main method of identification in many situations, most notably at border control, so choosing a photo with a poor likeness is not a good move.
