The Price of Wireless Just Went Down!

December 17, 2009 on 8:20 am | In Uncategorized | No Comments

Wind Mobile has launched service.  No contracts, no phone subsidies, no Long Distance Gouging….. NO SERVICE in many places.

Locked Handsets even though you pay full price and they are rightfully yours.

Handsets incompatible with all other high speed networks in Canada (Will work on Rogers GSM).

All inclusive packages only include airtime when on the Wind Mobile Network (Limited coverage in the GTA).  You will pay per minute fees if outside Wind’s service area.

Not such a good deal…..

Electronic Device Ban for Motorists takes effect October 26th

October 3, 2009 on 6:51 am | In Uncategorized | No Comments

Ontario’s ban on the use of cellphones, BlackBerrys and other hand-held electronic devices by drivers will take effect Oct. 26.

Motorists can expect a three-month education period when the ban first comes into effect, which means police will show some leniency.

But police will begin issuing tickets next Feb. 1.

Ontario drivers could be fined up to $500 if they’re caught using their hand-held cellphones or BlackBerrys to talk, email or send text messages while behind the wheel.

The government has said hands-free devices aren’t covered by the legislation, but they are not recommended for use while driving.

Ontario is the fourth province to enact such a ban, following Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec and Nova Scotia. Manitoba has introduced similar legislation.

Drivers are also banned from using portable video games and DVD players but they are allowed to use their cellphones for 911 calls.

Global positioning systems are allowed, as long as they’re properly secured to the dashboard.

There are no demerit points attached to the Ontario law, unlike in other provinces.

However, Ontario motorists using a banned cellphone could also be charged under careless driving laws and face fines, six demerit points, a driver’s licence suspension and even jail time.

Air Canada

August 14, 2008 on 5:42 pm | In Uncategorized | No Comments

Today I travelled to Montreal with Air Canada.  Again, what a disaster.  My 7am flight was delayed because the plane had an oil leak in one of the generators.  We finally deplaned and guessed were to find the new plane, a flight now scheduled for 8:30am.  After boarding the replacement aircraft they announced that they did not have any food on board, not the end of the world.  Then came the typical Air Canada crap, the plane had a problem with a noise in the cockpit and was being looked at by maintenance.  Finally at 9:20am my 7:00am flight left Toronto.  I have experienced a 50% chance on being on time with Air Canada.  Absolutely unacceptable.  Fly Westjet!
