Thanks, Bell, I’m Done: Why Shortchanging Your Customers with Inferior Service is NEVER the Way to Go.

A system outage is one thing when you’re trying to binge a series or catch up on the latest episode. But when it makes you miss out on a moment in Canadian history because their infrastructure can’t keep up? That, my friends, as they say, is some bullshit. The @Raptors didn't make […]

Destroy and Rebuild — or — How to Have Your Digital Cake and Eat it, TOO.

How the Electrical Safety Authority Will Help Power Your Home!

Part of me knows that my kids have no idea of how good they’ve got it. Plenty of things they have today would seem like space-age technology when I was their age in the ’80s. The shows you want to watch, whenever and wherever you want to watch them. Literally the […]
