It's almost here!
Piknic Electronik's 11th season kicks off with a double-header weekend of events on Sunday, May 19th, and Monday, May 20th. Under the watchful eye of the Calder, fans of electronic music will get back into the swing of their weekly rendezvous at the scenic Parc Jean-Drapeau to celebrate their communal passion.

It has taken more than 65 years and a few trend setting foodies, but Montreal’s are finally catching up to one of the most popular trends to hit North American cuisine. The food truck!
Street food has been outlawed in Quebec’s largest city since 1947 — mostly due to anxieties over public health and cleanliness. Weird for such a food city....
BUT NOW THAT HAS CHANGED! Food trucks are officially a go! Look for some new ones this summer! Mmmm.
Obsessed with Facebook? First thing you always check?
Well Facebook is unveiling a new experience for Android phones. The idea behind the new Home service is to bring content right to you, on the phone's home screen, rather than require you to check apps on the device.
It will run on Android 4.1, and will come with the Facebook-owned photo-sharing app Instagram already installed. Cost is $100 with a two-year service agreement. The new device will have a screen that measures 4.3 inches diagonally.
The April 12 sale date happens to be when the iPhone 5 becomes available through T-Mobile in the US.
