Too many Canadians overlook a critical aspect of their financial plan: life insurance. We know the number of households that own individual life insurance policies is falling, but the reality is that 33 per cent of families would be in immediate financial trouble if something were to happen to their primary breadwinner.
Tim Cook has been running around heralding the end of the PC. A self-serving assessment, but Intel and the PC ecosystem are going to struggle to maintain their traditional relevance.

The future in market research will belong to those who'll figure out how to sit at this intersection point. These are the ingredients needed, for us to build a better mouse trap.
