Google now taking walk throughs of Historic Buildings and Businesses

Matthew 0 Comments

Google Maps is a huge resource these days for those looking for directions. In the last few years they have traveled the streets giving you the ability to “Be there” visually instead of just looking ta map. Recently Google has taken on a new challenge, bring you into local businesses and Historical Buildings.

One of the buildings Google has taken on is the Atwater Library and Computer Centre where you can now find a pic of Yours Truly (see picture below).

Some other cool places they have been in are Kappo Nagi in Kyoto, Japan, Chataigner Yves in Paris, France, and even Restaurant Chez Queux here in Montreal, QC.…

Dropbox vs Google Drive

Matthew 0 Comments

As many people know I am an avid supporter of Google, be it their Gmail, Chrome, Android, or any other Google product, I have always had good experiences with everything that comes out. The newest (to me) is Google Drive.

Google Drive is an especially good find as I have been an active user of Dropbox, which is the same sort of thing. The problem with Dropbox, or rather my limit, was that it was reached quite quickly. Dropbox by default for a free account gives you only 2GB, I have been able to get it up to 3.1 by referring friends and following them on Twitter, etc.…

New phone this week

Matthew 0 Comments

I am looking forward to picking up the Google Nexus phone this up coming week. I have been without a phone for almost 2 months now and it is killing me. For a person so connected to technology as I am, not having a cell phone is devastating. But thankfully I get to replace the old torch with a more up to date phone that can handle new OSes. The problem with the Blackberry line of phones is they don’t make them update-able. Over the years I have had a few Blackberry phones, the most recent ones were the Curve 8530 which had OS 5 and would not allow the upgrade to 6, so I got a Torch, and less then 8 months later they announce 7, which the torch 9800 will not support.…

Farewell to the Flame (The theft of the Torch)

Well this weekend has been a hell of a downer for me. On Friday I opened the store at 8:30 so my boss/good friend could sleep in, having going out the night before for one of his friends birthdays. He called me that morning on my cell to ask me if opening went okay, and as I was up front putting out the papers, everything was fine. After the call I put down the phone on the desk nearest the door and finished putting out the papers.

Around mid day I wondered where my phone was (while at work I rarely have it on me, its either at my desk charging, or somewhere within reach).…
