Telus/Cambridge Electronics Incorporated is pleased to announce that the telecommunications company’s Rewards program is now available for Mobile and Home customers who have a linked TELUS Home Internet and a post-paid mobility account. The electronics and gadget store in Alberta is located at 105-8701 94 St., Fort Saskatchewan, and is proud to offer the Rewards program to its customers.

The Rewards program is a free loyalty program that allows members to earn points that can be redeemed towards items in the rewards catalog. It provides initial and ongoing rewards for customers based on their length of time with the company and their monthly spending. Mobile and Home customers are now eligible for the Rewards Program if they have a linked TELUS Home Internet and a post-paid TELUS mobility account. Customers who are not sure if their TELUS Mobility account is consolidated to their Home Services account can call 1-888-811-2323.

Dan LHeureux from the Telus/Cambridge Electronics store says that new and existing Mobile and Home customers that fit the eligibility requirements will be automatically enrolled in the Rewards program as they become eligible and they can immediately start earning points. To redeem their points in the Rewards portal customers must activate their Rewards account once they receive an email invitation from TELUS or by looking for the TELUS Rewards banner in their My TELUS account page or by visiting the website at telus.com/rewards.

Customers will be receiving an activation email that will inform them of both their enrollment details and instructions to log into My TELUS to activate their account. These emails will be sent out within 1 week of enrollment. To be eligible for the rewards program, customers and employees alike must have an address based in Alberta or British Columbia and have either a TELUS Internet plus a linked postpaid TELUS Mobility account or a minimum of 3 eligible TELUS services. Eligible services include Home Phone, Internet, Optik TV, Satellite TV, SmartHome Security and Linked, post-paid TELUS mobility. Corporate accounts are not eligible.

In order to redeem points a customer’s account must be active and should not be in treatment, suspended, canceled or closed status. They must log into the Rewards portal and accept the program Terms and Conditions in order to redeem their points. Earned points can be redeemed from an online catalog of products which customers access via their TELUS Rewards account.

It is clear that signing up and being a TELUS customer is even more rewarding now with the TELUS Rewards program. It’s easy to earn points for every dollar you spend with TELUS and the redeemed points can be used for free movies, bill credits, charitable donations, and much more from the TELUS Rewards online catalogue at telus.com/rewards.

Dan LHeureux says, “We are proud to serve Canada’s largest and fastest network and we are excited about offering the rewards program to customers in Alberta and British Columbia.” Dan believes that valued customers will gladly redeem their points for exclusive rewards that they will love. It is believed that this rewards program will keep TELUS on top of the telecommunications industry in Canada.

The telecommunications company, indeed, has received many positive comments from customers. A customer said in a review of TELUS on Trustpilot.com that he is very pleased and will recommend it to all his friends. Another reviewer on Trustpilot.com says she has been with TELUS since 2007 and has been happy with them all this time. She goes on to tell the company to keep up the great customer service and after hearing some of the issues other providers have she thinks TELUS is number one. A customer said in a review on Facebook that she is one happy camper and thanked the company for its services.

According to an article on Worldatlas.com, TELUS is the second largest telecom company in Canada with 8,600,000 subscribers in 2016. They have gradually risen to become a major player in the Canadian telecom industry. Canada Telecommunications says that TELUS is among the top most popular telecom companies in Canada. Dan says that the TELUS Rewards program is just another example of their innovation in the industry and a contributor to the telecom company’s success.

More information about the Rewards program can be found at the program’s official website at telus.com/rewards. Or people can visit telus.com to get general information about TELUS. Customers can also contact Dan LHeureux of Telus Fort Sask store at Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, or call him by phone.

Apple iPad October 30th Event Announcing More New Products

What to Expect at Apple’s October 30th Event: New iPad Pros, Mac Mini, Low-Cost Retina Notebook and More

Apple will be announcing some new products on Monday October 30th.  Checkout what the rumours are and what to expect we will hear below:

While Apple introduced iPhones back in September, there are still a number of products that the company is planning to refresh before the end of the year, necessitating a second fall 2018 event, set to be held on Tuesday, October 30 in New York City.

Apple’s October event will focus on the iPad and the Mac, and below, we’ve rounded up everything we expect to see along with a few other products that might possibly make an appearance at the keynote.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

 

iPad Pro

Apple is working on updated iPad Pro models that adopt an iPhone XS-style design with slimmer bezels and no Home button, with the iPads instead set to gain a TrueDepth camera system that will replace Touch ID with Face ID for biometric authentication purposes.

Though the iPhone XS uses a notch for the TrueDepth camera, the upcoming iPad Pro models are expected to feature slim top, bottom, and side bezels all around the display. Apple is not planning to use an OLED display for the new iPads due to cost and production issues.

2018 iPad Pro mockup via iDropNews

Recent CAD drawings sourced from a case maker along with additional leaks have given us some insight into the dimensions of the new iPad Pro models. The smaller iPad Pro is expected to be 7 inches wide (178.52mm) and 9.7 inches tall (247.64mm), while the larger model will be 8.5 inches wide (215mm) and 11 inches tall (280.66mm).

The smaller of the two iPad Pro models may be as thin as 5.86mm, and it’s not clear how thick the larger iPad Pro model will be. It could be as thin, or somewhat thicker like the current 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Bezels for both iPad Pro models could measure in at around 6mm at the top, bottom, and sides.


Based on multiple leaks, Apple is apparently relocating the magnetic Smart Connector on the new iPad Pro models from the side to the bottom near the Lightning port, which could perhaps require a new vertically oriented Smart Keyboard. It’s not clear why Apple is making this change, and it’s not known if Apple is indeed releasing a new Smart Keyboard that connects differently.

Originally, it was thought that Apple was relocating the connector because Face ID would be limited to portrait orientation since that’s the way it works on the iPhone, but code in iOS 12.1 suggests that after being set up vertically, Face ID will work on the iPad in both portrait and landscape modes.

Design wise, the new iPad Pro models are said to feature a “diamond cut” at both the front and the back, which suggests the tablets could have a design similar to the iPhone SE with beveled edges. Antenna lines on the device may also be located at the top and bottom, similar to the iPhone 7, rather than in a block at the top.

There are other major changes in store for the iPad Pro. Apple is said to be planning to eliminate the headphone jack from the iPad lineup like it did in the iPhone starting with the iPhone 7, and it’s rumored to use a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port.

A USB-C port would allow for faster charging and new functionality not possible via Lightning such as the ability to drive a 4K monitor.

Inside, the new iPad Pro models are said to be equipped with an A12X Bionic processor that’s even faster than the A12 chip in the new iPhone lineup.

Apple Pencil 2

Alongside new iPad Pro models, Apple is said to be planning to introduce a second-generation Apple Pencil with a new design.


Little detail is known about the new Apple Pencil, but it could feature an AirPods-like pairing experience with the ability to switch the Apple Pencil between devices without the need to plug it into a Lightning port.

iPad mini

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is working on an upgraded iPad mini that features an upgraded processor and a lower-cost display panel, which suggests it will be more affordable than the current version.

Kuo wasn’t entirely sure if Apple plans to release the iPad mini at its October event or at a later date in 2018 or early 2019, but there’s a possibility it will be unveiled alongside new iPad Pro models.


We don’t have any other information about the new iPad mini at this point in time, but it sounds like it’s not going to get the same design refinements that are coming to Apple’s iPad Pro lineup.

For more on the iPad mini, check out our iPad mini roundup.

MacBook Air

Apple has a 13-inch MacBook Air replacement in the works, which has been the subject of rumors for more than a year now. It’s still not clear whether Apple plans to label the machine as MacBook Air or a MacBook, but some concrete details about the upcoming notebook can be gleaned from everything we’ve heard.

Positioned as an entry-level low-cost machine in Apple’s product lineup, the notebook will be 13 inches in size and it will feature a Retina display. It is said to be similar in design to the current 13-inch MacBook Air, but with slimmer bezels.


It’s not entirely clear how Apple will distinguish this machine from the 12-inch MacBook if it’s going to be a MacBook Air with a Retina display, but if the design is similar to the current MacBook Air, the 12-inch MacBook will still be Apple’s lightest machine, justifying its higher price tag.

Various pricing rumors have suggested that it could be available for anywhere from $799 to $1,200, but the most reliable source, Bloomberg, believes it will cost under $1,000.

Whiskey Lake chips appropriate for a MacBook Air-like machine were announced by Intel in August, and so Apple could potentially be planning to use these chips in the device.

For more on the mixed rumors we’ve been hearing about the 13-inch low-cost notebook, check out our MacBook Air roundup.

MacBook

Regardless of whether the rumored lower-cost 13-inch notebook is positioned as a MacBook Air or a MacBook, rumors suggest Apple is planning to maintain the 12-inch MacBook lineup and a MacBook refresh is said to be in the works.

Upgraded 12-inch MacBooks are likely to feature Intel’s 8th-generation Amber Lake Y-series processors, announced in August. These chips bring processor and battery improvements, so new MacBooks could offer both faster performance and longer battery life.


Aside from upgraded Intel chips, there’s been little information on what else Apple might add to a refreshed MacBook lineup.

For more on the MacBook, check out our 12-inch MacBook roundup.

iMac

Apple refreshes its iMac lineup on a regular basis, and reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently said that an updated model is in the works and set to launch at Apple’s October 30th event.

We’re expecting new iMacs that feature upgraded 8th-generation Intel processors, improved GPUs, and perhaps the adoption of the T2 chip that was introduced in the iMac Pro and has since been added to the MacBook Pro.


For more on the iMac, make sure to check out our iMac roundup.

Mac mini

Apple is working on a refreshed version of the Mac mini that’s focused on the pro user base. The upgraded device will feature new storage and processor options, and because Apple is aiming it at pro users, some models could be more expensive than previous Mac mini products.

We don’t have a lot of additional information available on what to expect from the Mac mini, but one rumor suggested the higher-end model “won’t be so mini anymore,” hinting at one configuration with a larger size to accommodate higher-end components.


Given that the new Mac mini is going to be a pro-focused machine, it’s not clear what chips it will adopt, but Intel this year has announced 8th-generation processors appropriate for both desktop and notebook machines. Past Mac mini models have used the same chips as the 13-inch MacBook Pro, but Apple may be planning to opt for more powerful chips for a pro Mac mini model.

For everything we’ve heard on the Mac mini, check out our Mac mini roundup.

Other Possibilities

 

Mac Pro Preview

Apple last year announced work on a high-end high-throughput modular Mac Pro that will facilitate regular upgrades to meet the needs of Apple’s pro user base.

Apple has said this new, redesigned Mac Pro will launch at some point in 2019, but in the past, the company has provided us with early previews and the work on the Mac Pro is no secret, so it’s possible we’ll get a little taste of what to expect at this fall Mac-focused event.

For more on Apple’s work on a redesigned Mac Pro, check out our Mac Pro roundup.

iMac Pro

As should come as no surprise, Apple is working on a next-generation iMac Pro model, which Bloomberg confirmed this afternoon. There are no new chips available that would be appropriate for an upgraded iMac Pro right now, but it’s possible Apple will give us some details on when we can expect a refreshed iMac Pro machine.

AirPower and AirPods

We’re still waiting on the AirPower, the three-device charging mat that Apple introduced in September 2017. When it made its debut, Apple said it would launch at some point in 2018, and we’ve got a few months to go, so it could potentially make an appearance at the October event.

We’re not counting on it though, as Apple made no mention of the AirPower at its September iPhone-focused event, where a launch would have made more sense.


The AirPower is designed to charge the Apple Watch (Series 3 and 4), glass-backed iPhones, and AirPods all at the same time, with a wireless charging case required to enable wireless charging for the AirPods.

Alongside the AirPower, Apple is supposed to be introducing a new AirPods Charging Case that adds wireless charging to the earbuds, so if we see the launch of the AirPower, AirPods are likely to launch alongside it.

In addition to wireless charging, refreshed AirPods could gain an upgraded wireless chip that supports hands-free “Hey Siri” functionality. With “Hey Siri” support, AirPod owners will be able to activate Siri without needing to double tap on the AirPods with a finger.

Existing AirPods Charging Case next to redesigned AirPods Charging Case with wireless charging capabilities
No other major changes are rumored for the AirPods this year, but there have been some hints that Apple is working on a set of Apple-branded high-end over-ear headphones that could launch in late 2018 at the earliest, so we may see a mention of them. Rumors on a launch date have been mixed, though, so Apple may not be ready to debut these until 2019.

For more information on the AirPods, check out our AirPods roundup.

How to Watch

Apple’s event will kick off at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time, three hours earlier than events are normally held. This year’s event is happening earlier because it’s taking place on the East Coast instead of the West Coast.

Apple is planning to live stream the product unveilings on its event website and through the Events app on the Apple TV.

For those unable to watch, MacRumors will have live coverage both here on MacRumors.com and on our MacRumorsLive Twitter account, along with continuing coverage over the course of the next few weeks.

What are you most looking forward to seeing Apple introduce this year? Let us know in the comments.

Want to see whats coming up in the New Changes on This years 2018 iPads?

A while back on Tech Talk I spoke about the upcoming release of New Apple iPads for 2018.  Well now we have more information for you on what you can expect to see with these new devices!  Read below to see what’s coming:

 

New renders show what to expect from Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro refresh

With Apple’s ‘There’s more in the making‘ event little more than a week away, Hungarian industrial designer Victor Kádár has shared renders of the 2018 iPad Pro based on all the reports that have come out ahead of the tablet’s reveal.

The renders allow one to easily visualize how the new 12.9-inch and 11-inch will look, showcasing both devices’ slimmer bezels.

Like the iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, the new iPad Pros are expected to feature Face ID. Unlike Apple’s smartphones, however, neither of the new iPads is expected to include a display cutout. What’s more, Face ID will reportedly work in both portrait and landscape orientation on the 2018 iPad Pro.

Apple will also reportedly do away with the iPad Pro’s Lightning socket, and will instead add a USB-C port to facilitate functionality like 4K display output. Unfortunately, there’s also speculation the new iPad Pro also won’t include an analog headphone jack.

MobileSyrup will be on the ground in New York City next Tuesday to bring you all the latest from Apple’s second fall hardware event.

iPhone XR screen replacement will cost $259, battery replacement $89

Cupertino computing giant Apple has updated its ‘iPhone service pricing’ website, revealing how much iPhone XR owners will need to pay to service the company’s latest smartphone.

According to Apple, it will cost $259 CAD to replace the iPhone XR’s LCD display out of warranty. Device-owners who buy AppleCare+ will only need to pay $39.

Any iPhone XR owners experiencing battery issues will need to pay $89 as an out of warranty cost of replacement. For those with AppleCare+, the cost of servicing an iPhone XR battery is $0.

“Issues caused by accidental damage aren’t covered under the Apple Limited Warranty,” according to Apple.

“These prices apply only to repairs made by Apple. Other service providers may set their own prices. We’ll add a CA$10.77 shipping fee if your repair requires shipping and isn’t covered under warranty or AppleCare+.”

Other damages — like a shattered glass back — not covered by warranty or AppleCare+ will cost $519. Other damages covered by AppleCare+ will cost $129.

Apple went live with pre-orders for its entry-level 2018 iPhone on October 19th, 2018, with the 64GB base model coming in at $1,029.

Google Pixel 3 camera app rolling out to Pixel 2, 2 XL devices

The latest version of the camera app developed by Mountain View social networking giant Google is reportedly rolling out to Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices now.

According to Droid Life, Google Camera version 6.1.013 — the same version available on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL devices — is slowly coming to last year’s pair of flagship Google phones.

It’s worth noting that while some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users claim to have received the update, a Pixel 2 XL in the MobileSyrup offices has yet to receive an update.

Additionally, while the latest version of Google Camera brings some user interface upgrades, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices will not be able to utilize Google Camera’s suite of advanced selfie camera features, since the 2017 Pixel twins don’t have the same selfie camera hardware as the 2018 Pixel siblings.

The Google Camera app is free-to-download for compatible Pixel and Nexus devices.

Cambridge Electronics Joins Telus in Fall Giving

Cambridge Electronics Joins Telus in Fall Giving

Cambridge Electronics Incorporated joins Telus in Fall giving in helping vulnerable youth reach their Full Potential.  Dan Lheureux’s Telus Dealership in the Cornerstone Mall is also helping youth following Telus lead.  While away on a course Dan came across “Operation Underground Railroad” an Organization that

PAVES THE WAY FOR PERMANENT ERADICATION OF CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING

We are on a program that supports this Mission on a monthly basis and asks people to take a look at this very sad and serious issue and hopefully join the cause!

See more below on how TELUS is giving an unprecedented $120 million to help vulnerable youth reach their full potential

 

TELUS launches the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, which provides grants to grassroots charities and gives kids a brighter future

Vancouver – TELUS announced it is giving an unprecedented $120 million, launching the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, an independent charitable organization mandated to address the social and economic challenges facing Canada’s disadvantaged youth. This inaugural endowment is the largest donation made by a publicly traded Canadian company in history and one of the largest ever in North America.

Across Canada, 1.5 million children go hungry without access to nutritious food every single day; 350,000 young people are in government care and, lacking the support of a family, often experience trauma and an isolating transition into adulthood; 30,000 Canadians, many of them young people, are homeless on any given night and lack vital access to healthcare; and 40 per cent of low-income families lack affordable access to the Internet, putting kids at risk of falling behind in school.

“At TELUS, we believe that the challenges faced by vulnerable Canadian youth are unacceptable, which is why we are increasing our support of this important group,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of TELUS. “The TELUS Friendly Future Foundation enables even the smallest grassroots charities that are on the front lines in our communities – yet are often overlooked by large corporate donors – to receive funding grants that will be used to help young Canadians build digital literacy skills, provide basic healthcare and mental health support to the homeless, and open up essential educational opportunities.”

Mr. Entwistle added, “In the last two decades, TELUS, our team members and retirees have contributed more than $1 billion through $530 million in financial support and 1.21 million days of volunteerism, giving with our hearts and our hands to Canadians, yet still, there is so much more to be done. Working with the TELUS Community Boards, the Foundation will help to remove barriers and connect our most vulnerable citizens to the resources they need. The potential of these young people is boundless, and it is our responsibility to support and nurture them.”

TELUS has a legacy of helping disadvantaged Canadians, earning a global reputation as a values-driven company and the honour of being the first Canadian organization named the most philanthropic company in the world by the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

The Friendly Future Foundation builds on the many achievements of the TELUS Community Boards to date and ensures TELUS’ commitment to giving will be sustained for decades to come, solidifying TELUS’ position as the most giving company in the world. The TELUS Community Boards operate in 18 communities where TELUS team members live and work, both in Canada and abroad through TELUS International. Since 2005, the Community Boards have given $72 million to grassroots registered charities in support of 7,000 programs. The TELUS Community Boards operate in Victoria, Vancouver, Thompson Okanagan, Calgary, Edmonton, Manitoba, Ottawa, the Greater Toronto Area, Barrie, Montreal, Quebec City, Rimouski, Atlantic Canada, the Philippines, Bulgaria, Romania, El Salvador, and Guatemala.

The support provided by the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation complements TELUS’ existing social-purpose initiatives, including:
● Internet for Good, a ground-breaking program that offers nearly 30,000 low-income families in B.C. and Alberta access to low-cost, high-speed Internet and a computer. TELUS is expanding this program to even more families through the Government of Canada’s “Connecting Families” initiative this November;

● Mobility for Good, which offers a free cell phone and data plan to youth aging out of the foster care system in B.C., Ontario, and Quebec, ensuring this vulnerable population can stay connected to their support networks, social services, education and employment opportunities. TELUS will expand this program to Alberta this November, and Manitoba in February 2019;

● Health for Good, an innovative national program that provides healthcare to vulnerable and underserved Canadians through the deployment of specially equipped mobile health clinics into communities where frontline care is urgently needed.

About TELUS’ social purpose:
In support of our philosophy to give where we live, TELUS, our team members and retirees have contributed over $530 million to charitable and not-for-profit organizations and volunteered more than 8.7 million hours of service to local communities since 2000. Created in 2005 by President and CEO Darren Entwistle, TELUS’ 13 Canadian Community Boards and five international boards have led the Company’s support of grassroots charities and have contributed $72 million in support of 7,000 local charitable projects, enriching the lives of more than 2 million children and youth, annually.

Google+ Is Shutting Down: How Will It Impact SEOs?

Google+ Is Shutting Down: How Will It Impact SEOs?

Big NEWS released that Google was hacked and millions of private date was exposed 3 years ago and that they hid it.  This forces them to shut down.  Read below:

Oct 9, 2018 • 7:54 am | comments (7)by  twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine

As you probably heard by now, Google+ is shutting down. The reason is over lack of us and a data exposure through their API, which sounds similar to the Facebook issue. The big question in our community is how will it impact SEO and SEOs?

Firstly, I don’t think any of the readers here is surprised that Google is closing up Google+. I do think many are surprised with how Google has handled this. Supposedly a bug in Google+ gave outsiders access to private data from 2015 through sometime this year and Google did not disclose it because they didn’t think it would be a good idea to disclose it. That is a bit surprising and sad to hear from a company many of us trust and some of us do not trust. You can read about the data issues at Techmeme, it has been covered in detail and I am not going to cover it in that much detail.

At Search Engine Land, I covered the history of Google+ in search and how it impacted us over the years in the search results. It makes for a good read if you want to know some of the history.

But many are asking, how will it impact SEOs going forward. The truth is, it won’t impact SEOs all that much.

For the most part, Google+ has very little interaction in search or the search community. It doesn’t impact rankings, it doesn’t influence personalization anymore, it doesn’t impact anything around authors or content. It even has been pulled out of Google Local and Google My Business. It pretty much has died a slow death over the years in terms of integration into Google. So in terms of pure SEO, it will have almost no impact.

The one thing that will change is how John Mueller of Google schedules and announces his Google webmaster hangouts. He posts them on Google+ over here and make for a good place for John to collect questions prior to the hangout. So John will have to figure out a new place to do that. It wouldn’t be the first time Google took away something from John’s hangouts, like the Google+ Q&A feature and other features. So we will adapt.

Starting around front, the smaller Pixel 3 features a 5.5-inch P-OLED screen with a 1,080 x 2,160 resolution while the larger Pixel 3 XL sports a 1,440 x 2,960 resolution 6.3-inch P-OLED display. And while the latter of the two does feature a notch, both phones retain the stereo front-facing speakers.

Just like with previous Pixel handsets, both the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are almost identical spec-wise. So as far as cameras are concerned, around front, this means that the pair of smartphones each feature dual 8MP sensors (one standard f/1.8 shooter and one wide-angle f/2.2 snapper). These sensors allow the Pixels to take wide-angle selfies and handle better depth sensing. Around back, both handsets will utilize a single 12.2MP f/1.8 sensor.

Inside, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL specs include a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of built-in storage. The smaller of the two will come with a 2,915mAh battery while the larger model is powered by a 3,430mAh battery.

Additional specs include IP68 water and dust resistance, Android 9 Pie, wireless charging, and the pressure-sensitive Active Edge.
