Why My Next Phone HAD to be a Pixel 2 XL — a Casey Palmer x TELUS Joint

Zach Bussey put it well; to paraphrase: “if you’re going to be a serious influencer, you should be using serious tools.” As someone whose phone’s fused to his hands, it’d better be a good one! I haven’t rocked a flagship model since my Lenovo Moto Z a little while back, and man do you […]

Taming Toddlers with TELUS WISE and the Samsung Galaxy Tab E!

It’s a big, bad digital world we live in, and sadly, many are poorly equipped to deal with the perils and pitfalls that’re all too abundant on the Web. I sadly saw it all too often in my days as a banker—the customers who fell victim to online scams, either too caught up in […]

GIVEAWAY: Building a Smarter Home with TELUS, Part Two — Letting the Right Ones in With the August Smart Home Access System!

I can still remember it vividly: it was a nippy day in January 2000, and I left home in the morning—as I often did—to go write a midterm exam at school. The Mississauga Palmers followed their routine in suit—my brothers went to their school; Mom went to work; and […]

The Month That Was… November 22nd – December 26th, 2015.

It’s been the hottest minute since I put out a Week That Was, so much so that I needed to roll ’em up into a month’s worth of material to catch up on the stories! A bit of a fail, I admit, but when you’re simultaneously preparing for Christmas, […]
