“The Evolution of the Mobile Phone Matryoshka Doll Style”
My speedtest comparison done before switching from Wind to Koodo & after. Taken at the exact same place, even though different servers were used (I have no idea why). The results speak for themselves!

Canada-Wide Super 6GB

I’m switching providers within the next week to Koodo. The choice was quite obvious after seeing the plan they had available. 

Canada-Wide Super 6GB
250 Canada-Wide Anytime Minutes
6GB’s Data
Caller-ID & Voicemail
Unlimited Evening & Weekends after 5PM (Canada Wide)
Unlimited Incoming (Canada Wide)
Unlimited Text & Picture Messages

$60/month - no contract

This limited time offer ends August 9th, 2012 and is the only 6GB data plan currently offered that includes Caller-ID & Voicemail. I’m so excited to be finally switching over to some reliable coverage. My service with Wind has been nothing short of awful. 

Over on the RFD forums, members are reporting rumors of Koodo launching LTE in Toronto

the Koodo girl was going to give me one of the orange books with SIM, but I asked specifically if she had the blue booklet with a micro SIM. She looked a little confused and said “I think these are for the LTE phones and I’m not sure if I can activate them yet cos we just got them in”. Anyway, she went ahead and activated it fine. My blue booklet was labeled with KGDMMICROSIM3 and has the 4 zeros in the middle of the number printed on the plastic card that holds the SIM.I haven’t got an LTE phone yet, so I can’t test to see if LTE is lit up here in KW, but the Koodo girl did tell me it’s coming soon.


Looks like LTE will be coming. Some have connected to koodo LTE using an LTE device. They’re probably waiting to announce it when they have an LTE compatible device to sell.

Very exciting stuff, considering I’ll be switching over to their 6GB data plan within the next week!

My HP Touchpad weighs 1.6 pounds. That’s like carrying a small toddler everywhere I go. I need something that won’t add a significant amount of weight to backpack, especially if I’m already carrying a laptop. It’s not even comfortable to hold, my arms grow restless and eventually I just place it on table. The moment your tablet is placed on a table (for anything but watching a movie) is the moment when you may as well use your laptop.

I recently got this badass stylus from Dollarama, it cost $2.

Google Chrome: the next default browser

I fear for the moment that Google decides that Chrome will be the stock browser for Android (only a matter of time). Using Google Chrome as my everyday mobile browser is such a frustrating, mediocre experience compared to the stock browser or even Opera mobile. I’ll give them credit for the beautiful UI but that’s as far as I’m willing to go.

Why didn’t they simply skin their stock browser with the Google Chrome UI and call it a day? Whatever the reason, I hope that Chrome will improve or I’ll be taking my browsing elsewhere.

I’m wondering what you guys use to tumble from on your tablet/smartphone? I gave MyTumblr a shot and it flat out did not work.

MySms Reviewed

I recently reviewed MySms, an application that allows users to send and receive text messages from their tablet while connected to their smartphone. This is it:

" I understand that this application was free and I appreciate that, I really do but after using I understand why. Turning notifications off (all of them) still gave me an icon in my notification bar on my phone. The scrolling in a conversation is horrendous, it’s almost as if the page is refreshing. Oh, and I haven’t even gotten to the worst part, in order for this application to send messages the application must be actively running on your phone (I don’t mean running in the background)."

I rated it two stars simply because it was free and did what it advertised
