“…the worst thing to happen to Canada since Justin Bieber…”

As always, the internet has a plethora of websites with breaking news stories from around the globe. Of all the ones I stumbled across, nothing stood out more to me than this article from Huffington Post that talks about a letter written by a loyal Tim Horton’s customer’s complaint over their “inferior” lids.

It’s worth the read and it highly entertaining. It will have you nodding your head agreement and saying “I, too, have felt the pain of this individual!”

First world problems at its best.




What a terrible time this is!

What a terrible time this is!

Hey folks,

So I’m going to be the bearer of bad news here and tell you all that I will taking a break from blogging for few days or so. I know, I know, what terrible timing because E3 is happening! I’m sure many other outlets on the interwebs will provide much coverage and opinions about what’s being announced.

We are still accepting articles for guest bloggers, so if that interests you, send away!

Until then, have yourselves a great week and see you soon!

Are video games art?

I frequent quite a bit. I mostly go to find random, funny videos because I am easily amused (obviously). Anyway, I came across this video that asks the age old question: Are ______ art? In this case, are video games art?

Watch “Man of Steel – Official Nokia Exclusive Trailer [HD]” on YouTube

Nokia released the final trailer for Man of Steel yesterday. Check it out because it is pretty awesome.

One week until the movie opens and I’m sure it will top the box office for its opening weekend.

I want to avoid the opening day rush and will see on Sunday.

Are you guys stoaked for this movie or what?!

How does Superman shave his beard?

We seem to be Superman obsessed here at Aural Visual but dammit this movie just looks too good to not talk about!

Many people through the years have questioned Superman’s shaving abilities. How does he do it? Heat vision? Krypto shaving cream? Adam and Jamie from Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters have a few theories of their own.

Samsung Galaxy S4: Is the fastest selling Android device the perfect phone for the everyday multitasker

The newest smartphone to join the Samsung family is the Galaxy S4 in May and I must say I was quite excited. I currently have the Galaxy S3 and have been quite happy with it since leaving the iPhone behind. While I am still am a supporter of Apple products, I have to say the Android smartphone has won my heart. It’s literally like having a mini computer in my hands.

Anyway, the specs between the two phones aren’t vastly difference. However, Samsung did make some very slight adjustments in terms of camera quality and storage space. While the S3 only came in 16GB and 32GB options, with the S4 you have the option of upgrading to 64GB. In addition to that, you have the option of a microSD up to 64GB. The camera has been upgraded from 8 megapixels to 13 for the rear camera and the front camera from 1.9 megapixels to 2. It is a little lighter in weight but virtually looks the same as the S3. It has a wider HD screen display and is slightly thinner.

The Galaxy S4 camera has been said to be the best on the market according to a French digital optics firm. More about that can be found in the Tech News World article here. Pictures are much more vibrant and has better zooming options.

Little upgrades to the S4 has me wanting to upgrades in the operating system, such as voice control, a sensor software that detects your eye movements so webpages automatically scroll without touching the screen and videos pause when you look away. There is also an “air gesture” option that allows you to magnify parts of the screen when you hover your finger over it. Similar to Apple iPhone Siri option, Samsung has Google Now.

This phone is perfect for the everyday multitasker – which I am. While I am not unhappy with my S4, the flashy user-friendly options has me wanting to make the switch ASAP.
