My favourite movie is Die Hard.

 

Anyone who’s ever asked me knows that. So do people who haven’t asked me. I talk about it a lot. I know it’s not for everyone and when I take a look at what movies you’re going to find on the TELUS Optik Advent Calendar this year, I’m not surprised that (spoiler alert) Die Hard isn’t on the list.

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.

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.

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.
