This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Mobile Shop. All opinions are 100% mine. I feel like parents do something these days that we rarely saw happen in the generations before us: We admit to our kids that we don’t know everything. And it’s […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Mobile Shop . All opinions are 100% mine. Now that I’m a Dad myself, I’ve started seeing fatherhood in a whole new light. Getting the right gift for anyone takes a lot of effort. Handmade stuff is super […]
Several weeks, a few dozen photos and four thousand words later, we’ve finally made it—the Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad 2017 wrap-up, filled with stories aplenty of 365 days spent in my not-so-orthodox life. After wrapping the year up on a quiet note (because two sick children under five will do […]

We’ve come a long way from when I bought my first cell phone in early ’02, keeping a close eye on how many texts I sent and chastising friends who’d call in the daytime unless it was an emergency. Everything’s gotten so much more complex since then! Smartphones are as […]
GIVEAWAY POST: The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 2 S and Pop 7 — Two Devices to Help Consumers Out of a Digital Stone Age
I think I need a new phone. Maybe it’s the way it only charges when propped up at just the right angle thanks to its damaged microUSB port, a port that’s ever so fragile on just about any device it graces. Maybe it’s the times when the phone randomly restarts, […]
