Metered Internet in Canada. Say it ain't so!

I don't know about you, but most of my services now come over the internet.
I rent movies and make telephone calls, do my banking, pay my taxes, renew my car license, interact with my city, provincial and federal governments all through network technology.

The network service providers are aware that more and more we are going to depend on the network for our day to day lives. They want to get the rules changed now before most of us are aware of just how much things are going to change.

What we'll end up with is a system like cell phone where you pay by the minute for every call you make and the cost can be as high as they like it to be.

This is not a good situation for us and will in fact make us a backward country in terms of our future compared to the rest of the world. Don't let this become the way things are. Help change the rules before they rules are implemented.

New Android version released

Well it appears today that that my Nexus One got an OTA update from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2.

The notice said it was a maintenance release, which would make sense based on the version sequence.

More on the update here:

Nexus One Gets Android 2.2.2 Update, Still no Gingerbread

Now if only Samsung would get off their asses and stop screwing their customers.

I am dropping my Galaxy S Captiva as soon as I can!
