    Toronto-based SnapPay launches facial recognition payment technology

    Facial recognition software used to pay for stuff? Obviously has not watched any Mission Impossible flicks. :)

    Well that was one hell of a first 10 days of hockey. Lots of surprises. Toronto ended a rather ugly 3 game skid, scraping 2 points out of Detroit. Their top stars (read: moneymakers) were virtually invisible. Marner looks completely lost out there. Tavares is running around like a chicken with...

    Pretty special night, Tavares being named captain. well-deserved. I think they got the right guy for the job. Kudos to Matthews and all, but I truly believe that 6 years from now Matthews will be playing for Arizona, just after the photo of him in Coyotes pajamas surfaces. I think the Leafs got...

    Man that Sandin kid looks terrific. He may well stick with the big boys this year, at just 19 years of age. Seriously. He looked like Tim Horton out there. So poised and patient, detail oriented. Babcock has to love this guy.

    Heh. I gotta say, I'm none too pleased with what I'm seeing from the Leafs. I realize it's preseason and all, but I'm not seeing any of that swagger that says "going to the cup final this year".

    I broke down. With Marner signed, I'm liking what the Leafs can do this year. So I opted for the Select package from Rogers, $75/Mo all in. FWIW and a bit OT, Rogers threw all manner of Ignite bundle deals at me, including 500/30 with Ignite select, 84.95/Mo+tax. Just $10 a month more than what...

    FWIW, the base package to get Leafs hockey in Toronto is the select package on Rogers, $76 a month all in. It was $5 cheaper last year, and we went for it. I can get it cheaper via a bundle, but I won't allow a Puma modem in my home. On average, we watched about 14 hours of hockey on Sportsnet...

    Not that I'm aware of. Rogers owns exclusive NHL broadcast rights in Canada, and it's one of the main reasons why people stick with Rogers' bloated channel packages - pro sports. They're unlikely to relinquish that stranglehold any time soon. Still holding off on the Rogers call. All these...

    A bit over a week until camp. No Marner. There's some rumours a 3 year bridge deal @ 9.5m per is in the works. The NHL hasn't released the full broadcast schedule for the preseason, just bits and pieces. Holding off on my call to Rogers.

    About a month out from training camp, so here we go. And we can start off with another RFA imbroglio, Mitch marner not being signed sliding into September. The odd thing is, the Leafs know precisely how much cap room they have, and so does Marner's camp. If he's holding out for more than the...

    Google Home vs Amazon Alexa

    In the past few months I decided to throw caution to the wind and do away with any notion that anything I'm doing these days is private. What I'm doing, who I'm doing it with, when and where, is just... "out there". Might as well enjoy the convenience too. Google Home I first acquired a...

    Quite a lot of activity with the Leafs, a lot of familiar faces out the door but I think overall the team is getting better. I still think we're a piece of two away from serious contention. The trade deadline next year will be notable for sure. I think we got a little bigger and meaner on...

    Well... where do I Start?

    I've been with Start Communications since February 2013. I've only ever had internet service through them so can't speak to any other services they offer. I was previously with Rogers in Scarborough, but decided to switch to Start for internet because the price was better and I'd rather do...

    Amazon Canada’s new Mastercard gives Prime members 2.5 percent back

    Unfortunately, due to Amazon Canada's shenanigans revolving around the Shield TV skill on Alexa being available in the US only (Amazon blaming Nvidia, Nvidia blaming Amazon), I'm boycotting anything sold or offered on/by Amazon. Not tolerating that sort of nonsense at all. Once that skill...

    Nice to see Bozak hoist the silverware, and Steen too. I'm a little shocked Boston lost, but Binnington was a monster last night. He absolutely stole that game. It should have been 3-0 Boston after the first were it not for his heroics. So that's that.

    Ian Scott to the Canadian Telecom Summit “Fostering Choice, Innovation and Better Prices for Canadians”

    For certain, we're in more trouble now with Scott than we ever were with Dalfen (can't speak ill of him because he's dead) or Konrad von Mumblefuck. Dalfen's penchant for supporting the cartel shrunk in the face of Sheila Copps' pro-cartel jones. And von Mumblehertz sat on either side of the...

    I must admit, I'm losing interest in following the cup final. Not so much the teams that are in it, but I do despise Boston. Disappointed with the officiating, which is absolutely the worst I can remember. And finally, now that I'm a little older, I find it tough staying awake after the second...

    The Bruins and Blues for the cup. Both teams heavy on the puck and tenacious. Should be a hard-fought physical series. St Louis in 7.

    Man, the Bruins are tenacious. As much as I hate them, they look prepared for another cup. Carolina. What a run man. They just plain run out of steam. Hoping the Blues prevail. That's a final I'd watch. San Jose not so much.
