  • BlackBerry Bold to launch in Canada before US?


    Apparently Rogers of Canada will get the 3G BlackBerry in one week, June 25. I thought AT&T was getting the Bold in July? According to the BGR we may have to wait a bit longer for the Bold to hit stateside. AT&T corporate is still telling their Fortune 500 customers that the Bold will launch in “July/August”. I hope it’s not really August. It’s the one… Read More

  • Cannucks getting iPhone this month, eh? (Sorry.)

    Beta’s got it that Canadia (yes, I spelled that right) is finally poised to get the iPhone. Rogers is set as the carrier, and the device will sell for $799 Canadian, which is, like, close to $799 American. The question is, why so much?

  • Use Rogers? Your Torrents Might Be Useless

    Since I’m not Canadian, I’m a little out of the loop on what Rogers has been up to. According to TorrentFreak, the ISP banned BitTorrent traffic due to excessive bandwidth consumption.

That means your secure… Read More
