Could Your Phone Know More About Your Health Than Your Doctor?

What if the Internet and our mobile devices could become a reliable tool for your health? Would your phone then know more about your health than your doctor? One of the biggest developments in healthcare we have seen is mobile health, or mhealth, which is effectively is freeing healthcare devices of wires and cords.

Beware Your Cellphone

What really came as a surprise to me was when Dr. Davis mentioned that mobile phones actually increased dopamine in the brain. What does that mean physiologically?

Big Telecom Is Trying to Dupe You - Don't Buy It!

Big Telecom is up to its old tricks again.

Canadians will be asking why the Big Three don't put that money instead towards addressing their systematic mistreatment of cell phone users.

New Industry Minister: High Expectations to Lower Wireless Prices

James Moore is widely seen as a heavyweight within Cabinet and the Conservative Party, and I believe it's a positive sign for Canada's digital future that the Prime Minister has named him as our Industry Minister. His appointment will raise expectations that the government will finally take the bold action required to open our communications networks to new more affordable services for Canadians.
