Its been a while since I've updated the Vault with new figures.  I recently picked up the Dark of the Moon Deluxe Air Raid.  I love this figure in vehicle mode it just looks like an awesome plane.  More coming soon!

Liar Liar pants on fire.... The more you text the more you lie

CP24 has presented a study done by the University of British Columbia who have confirmed the inevitable.. the more people text the more they are likely to lie or inflate their stories a little. Shocker. The age of faceless communication has enabled all kinds of antisocial behaviors from the way we heartlessly speak to one another through our keyboards, to the cyber-bullying (yes that includes the gossipers), to the trolls, to the disconnect from real life and real social skills.

I'm not on the floor in shock at this correlation between fibbing and the frequent usage of text messaging. It has always been like this back in the original days of being able to send chat messages through a computer. People always lied because their is no real way of knowing the difference truth and lie. But what this study does touch upon is where we should be concerned. There is a difference between texting and using online social tools. To text someone you have to know them. And if we are developing the habit of blatantly lying to people who are friends or family then this is an issue.   All these social tools are a way for us to communicate better and when needed to reach out to one another that's what social networking and communication is.  Have your say in the combox.

The Hobbit Trailer

Music video to Steve Jobs

Android is my device of preference and readers of BlogginBlodgett may know I have not used Apple Devices in many years. I was on Youtube last night, I was watching a music video and as what usually happens with Youtube two hours later I'm watching something completely unrelated. So I end up watching an interview with the late Steve Jobs from the 2010 D8 Conference. I have only recently got back into following technology trends gradually over the last couple of years. I found this video embedded below quite interesting as I haven't followed the Apple/Steve Job's Story all that closely. There is a lot of insightful information in the interview.  When you have the time watch the full interview embedded below. 

Fridge food Taggin

I've always admired food tagging but do people really think this will keep their goods safe from the fridge monster?

Rail Link set to go

The new Rail Link between Toronto and Pearson Airport is set to begin construction this coming spring.  The Rail Link which will cost tax payers an estimated  $128.6 million dollars.  It is expected to create over a thousand jobs for the City as well.  It will be nice to see a Rail Link to be built that travels between Downtown Mississauga and the airport as well as other major transportation hubs.  More details on the Rail Link can be found over at the Mississauga News
