I grew up on a farm. Cows, horses, ducks and chickens - The real deal. Our farm was at the foot of a mountain and the threat of fire in the summer was always on our minds.

It's been over a month since the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ hit the market and the overwhelming consensus is that it's a winner. Of course, it's one thing to distill (impersonal) sentiment from a large user base but quite another to hear about it from someone we trust.

I can’t believe it’s over.  I waited with bated breath for this year’s conference to begin and no sooner did it kick off, am I now sitting here by my lonesome contemplating life after I/O. Maybe I’m being a bit dramatic but boy, I’m going to miss it.

Some people think day 1 of the keynote is the meat of the conference. For me, day two brought to the forefront some of the more fascinating projects that Google is working on.

If there are any comparable moments in my life that elicited the same feeling of anticipation in the weeks leading up to my Google I/O trip, it would have to be Christmas eve as a kid and the birth of my child. Is today real? Somebody pinch me.

As a senior product manager with the Device Acquisition team at TELUS, one of my main roles is to help bring technological enhancements to our network and, in-turn, our customers.  I have worked on bringing to market some really sweet features like VoLTE and Wi-Fi calling.  It can be argued that I have one of the coolest jobs at TELUS!

Back in September 2016, I found out TELUS was installing Fibre optic service in my neighbourhood. Knowing the kind of speeds that are possible on a fibre optic network, I knew I had to sign up. But it was important for me to first consider my environmental challenges against my requirements.

Combat Cybercrime.jpg

 

The digital era is in full swing and it has made our lives much more convenient. However, the abundance of personal information online also motivates cybercriminals to try and gain access to it as well. I want to talk to you about an initiative we’re working on but first, let’s talk about online security.

That feeling you get when you know a new phone is on the way can be as exciting as Christmas morning. There’s nothing quite like ripping open that crisp new packaging and being the first person ever to use it. There’s even that “new phone” smell.

 

We know that the wait can be excruciating and it’s no secret the process to get there isn’t always as quick and easy as making a trip to the nearest TELUS dealer and walking out with your new phone activated and ready to go. To assist you with this process, I’ve compiled a few articles I think will help you from ordering to accessorizing, and everything in between.

Think for a second about how many different online accounts you use every day. We have email accounts, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, bank accounts and online shopping accounts, just to name a few. Collectively, almost our entire lives are contained in these accounts, and there is typically only one thing protecting all of these accounts from the prying eyes of hackers: a password. We've all forgotten passwords (yes, even me!) and have struggled to come up with a password that meets some strange set of requirements.
