Spear Phishing for Email Transfers

Technology, The Web | November 16, 2016
Over recent months I have had a couple clients targeted by spear phishing attacks. In both cases the finance manager received an email from the executive director asking about paying a client. This was the initial email sent in one example: Please let me know if you’re available to process a transfer (this is a...

CRTC and Pick and Pay

Technology | September 8, 2014
The CRTC starts hearings today to decide whether people should be able to pick and pay for the channels they want. What a waste of time and money. The CRTC should not get involved with the business models of television providers. If they were to impose a pick-and-pay system they are 20 years too late. With...

Using Apps to Track your Workouts

Technology, Thunder Bay | May 26, 2014
One of the best uses of a smartphone is to supercharge your workouts and motivate yourself by using an App to track and compare your outdoor activities.

Windows 8

News, Technology | October 27, 2012
Earlier this week, too much fanfare, Microsoft released the newest version of the most popular operating system in the world, Windows 8. I know this is one of several thousand blogs to write about it, most either love it or loath it but I am in between, meh. They are calling it “re-imagining Windows” which...

Trouble on the Horizon for Tbaytel?

Technology, Thunder Bay | October 25, 2012
Bell and Virgin Mobile have recently setup shop in Thunder Bay and if you have been by their stores, they are busy. Line-ups are a regular sight. Tbaytel’s history of mobile network problems have been ongoing for far too long and many customers are making the switch. Many more will as contracts expire or get...
