Likely few know or remember it now, but back in the late 60s or early 70s, Random Island nearly had 2 more roads.  Some may still remember near the Apsey Brook cemetery they had even cut a “line” going through the woods, passing near Island Pond (not…

When we were kids in school back on Random Island, there was no March break (and maybe there still isn’t, no idea).  We did have some time off at Easter, but the big week I remember most was Education week.  We’d try to earn points for our classes with…

I'm travelling to London in late June/early July (yes I managed to get a Monty Python ticket).  I'm not a fancy schmancy eater myself, not interested in fine dining, but does anyone have recommendations on local foods I must try?  of the non fancy schmancy variety?  Prefer a pub style atmosphere.

True, and I'm pretty sure England feels the same way and uSes code.

Depends on your usage I guess. I had no trouble going full day on my old one, though it would have been below 50% at same pace

Note to I sent to +TELUS  though it applies to all carriers. (not that anyone likely cares, but I needed to vent)

I understand from your live chat that you do not offer the new HTC One in gold.  I just wanted to state that for many consumers phones have become very much a commodity.  Its little things like color and accessories that can tip a decision. 

Today rather than an immediate contract extension that you would have gotten by simply carrying a color, you are left with a customer who will likely let my contract expire and explore options then. 

The device, its accessories, colors, aesthetics matter a great deal when they are really the only differentiation anymore.  In your efforts to have different products from competitors, you are driving people to them.  Differentiate yourselves on service and plans instead. 

Thank you for your time from a customer left wanting.
