  • Samsung Galaxy S4

    The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S4 is almost ready for shipment. Although the release dates are up in the air between now and  the end of May most carriers should start shipping within the next couple of weeks. The screen itself is bigger than its predecessor the Galaxy S3 which offers a display of 4.8 inches, which is Super AMOLED with 306ppi and a resolution of 1280 x 720p. The Samsung Galaxy S4 does one better by offering a screen of 5 inches, which comes with 441ppi and a 1920 x 1080p resolution.

  • In-N-Out’s Double Double Burger Crowned America’s Favorite

    The votes are in and America has spoken, crowning In-N-Out Burger’s Double Double king of the fast food burger – on Ranker, that is. More than 1,600 gave the Double Double thumbs up, with only a little more than 600 voting it meh. Rounding the top 5 fast-food burgers were Five Guys Hamburger, Five Guys Bacon Cheeseburger, Fuddruckers and Whataburger Original Whataburger. Missing from that top 5 are McDonald’s, Burger King and Wendy’s. At least Wendy’s and Burger King made it to the top 10, with Wendy’s Baconator placing 6th, its quarter pound Single placing 9th and Burger King’s Whopper placing 7th. As for McDonald’s, it’s Quarter Pounder and Big Mac placed 11th and 12th, respectively. In-N-Out has locations in just five western states – California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Texas – so it’spretty impressive that it beat out bigger names that have locations nationwide, not to mention those that are common sights around the world. Still, not everyone with a passion for burgers is necessarily even aware of Ranker, so one must wonder if these results would be the same with more burger lovers weighing in. Would Shake Shack still be wallowing down at 25th? Has the horse meat more »

  • Valpo Goes Down, but The Astronaut Lives on in History

    With respect to Valparaiso University’s Crusaders, “The Shot” refers to a play that occurred in the first round of the 1998 NCAA Tournament. The play came in Valpo’s game against the University of Mississippi Rebels at The Myriad in Oklahoma City on March 13, 1998, and gave the #13 seed Crusaders a 70–69 victory over #4 seed Ole Miss. The game was part of a Valparaiso Cinderella run in the tournament that ended in the Sweet Sixteen when the Crusaders lost to Rhode Island. Bryce Drew, now coach of Valpo, made history, but nothing is as cool as an astronaut. Check out the alternate ending to “The Shot”.

  • Brews of the Bracket: Philadelphia Brewing Co. in Philadelphia, PA

    Weisbrod & Hess Oriental Brewing Company opened in in Philadelphia in 1885, running until 1939 when the facility ceased to produce beer. Philadelphia Brewing Co. (2440 Frankford Avenue) took over the space in 2001, restoring the brewing heritage of the 19th-century property. In the past decade, they’ve been serving up the Philadelphia region’s finest drinkers summer refreshment and winter comfort. southphillystriders.com Touring the historic facility is typically done on Saturday between 12-3PM. The experience is a relaxed time sit back with the brew staff and sip on some ales—a process that starts well before the tour begins—while learning about the process. Don’t expect much glitz from the brick facility (they run on a “less is more” attitude for the interior design). The location isn’t exactly central or scenic, but a visit is worth it for the history lesson alone. flickr.com Philadelphia Brewing is probably best known for the instantly recognizable Kenzinger beer that is dangerously drinkable and on tap just about everywhere. Their seasonals are very reliable, the Kilty Pleasure Scotch Ale being the most recent release of that selection. The brewery should also be dropping their springtime Fleur de Lehigh soon to celebrate the return of baseball season.

  • How The Infamous “Leprechaun In Mobile” Video Came To Be

    [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nda_OSWeyn8] Who can forget the 2006 WPMI-TV local news report that launched the Crichton Leprechaun to Internet stardom? A few days before St. Patrick’s Day that year, Brian Johnson and his crew were investigating why crowds of people in the Crichton area of Mobile, Ala., kept gathering beneath a tree at night holding camcorders and camera phones. Residents claimed they had spotted a leprechaun, offering the reporter unintentionally hilarious commentary and even producing an amateur sketch that looked as if it had been drawn by a blindfolded two-year-old. After the report aired on the NBC affiliated news station, the video, including the craptacular sketch, was uploaded to YouTube and the Internet went wild. The original video alone has been viewed more than 21 million times. A re-uploaded version from July 2012 has received an additional 1.8 million views. You have to wonder how many theoretical dollars that works out to. It was clear that viewers couldn’t get enough of the report. But it wasn’t the leprechaun, hoax or not, which drew them in by the millions, but rather some of the zingers delivered by the interviewed residents. Notable quotes included, “To me, it looked like a leprechaun to me,” and more »
