If you haven’t come up with any Valentine’s Day ideas yet, well, you might be in trouble. Maybe you have a partner that isn’t really that concerned about a big date idea. You know what, though?

 

They are. They’re very concerned about your apparent lack of foresight.

January is the perfect moment to plan your fitness goals and get a fresh start on your fitness. Even with the best intentions, it can be a little overwhelming for beginners to move towards a fitness lifestyle in the new year.

Google Home has a lot of features and you can ask (or tell) it a lot of things.

 

I wasn’t sure where to start so I decided to just ask my Google Home:

“Hey Google. What are some of the cool things you can do?”

 

“I can help you do lots of things. For example, you can say, ‘play some Queen’ or ‘how are the Roughriders doing?’ Would you like to hear some more?”

 

“Sure.”

-- The Santa Tracker and other TELUS holiday programming has been put away with the decorations. It'll be back at the end of 2018. Happy New Year! --

 

*************************************

 

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.
