  • Research in Motion’s day of reckoning is coming up. On January 30, the beleaguered smartphone maker debuts its new BlackBerry 10 line of devices. Early reviews of the software are good, and a US federal agency that abandoned RIM for Apple is now reportedly having second thoughts. It should be interesting to see how things pan out.
  • The Toronto Dreams Project dissects a crowd photo taken at King and Yonge streets near the end of the Great Boer War. It’s fascinating stuff.
  • Princess Margaret Cancer Centre thinks it has discovered why cancer cells are so tough to kill: they play possum. What cowards.
