Tech Talk with Luke England & Dan LHeureux on Mix 107.9 April 19th, 2019

Hey!  Check out what we talked about on Tech talk this week!   We are Closed Sunday Easter Sunday! How to use Apple Maps to find retailers that take Apple Pay Apple Pay support continues to spread, both to more U.S. retailers and to more countries. But still, it’s not yet so commonplace that you can just assume you’re going to be able to pay with your iPhone anywhere you go. With the upcoming Apple Card, the 2 percent cash back rate is predicated on paying with Apple Pay, so finding retailers that accept it is going to be more important than ever. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to see if you can pay with your iPhone at that store, restaurant, or other retailer: just check Apple Maps.

Quoting a “person familiar with the matter,” Nikkei writes: “Apple had been a little concerned whether a sole supplier for modems could affect the company’s plans to introduce its first 5G smartphone new year.” As part of its settlement with Qualcomm, Apple agreed to pay an undisclosed amount to the chipmaker. It also signed a six-year licensing agreement, with the option to extend the deal a further two years, with Qualcomm. In the short-term, even if Canadian carriers don’t launch their 5G networks in 2020, the fact the new iPhones will feature Qualcomm modems again is a positive for Canadian consumers. In test after test, Qualcomm’s LTE modems lapped whatever Intel could muster. At the moment, the Qualcomm modem Apple is most likely to integrate into the 2020 iPhone is the X55. The X55 is multi-mode modem that is capable of both LTE and 5G connectivity simultaneously. In the long-term, it’s unlikely this the last we’ll hear of any animosity between Apple and Qualcomm. The potential eight-year time frame of the licensing agreement Apple signed on Tuesday gives the company more than enough time to develop its own modems, which it was already doing ahead of Tuesday’s announcement.

[PDF] In the document, Netflix says that it’s “excited” to compete with Apple and Disney, and that it does not feel that the new services will affect Netflix’s growth because of the “differing nature” of …

Tech Talk August 3rd, 2018 with Owen Shoemaker & Dan the Man LHeureux Mix 107.9

Tech Talk August 3rd, 2018 with Owen Shoemaker & Dan the Man LHeureux Mix 107.9     ” Telus has the fastest wireless network in Canada, according to Ookla Speedtest 100+ MobileSyrup by Sameer Chhabra  /  3d  //  keep unread  //  hide INSIGHTS Add note Canadian national carrier Telus had the fastest network in Canada between Q1 and Q2 2018, according to internet performance analyst Speedtest.net. Canada’s third-largest carrier by subscribership reportedly achieved download speeds of 63.03Mbps, and upload speeds of 12.62Mbps. National carrier Bell came in second place with average download speeds of 62.07Mbps, while Rogers flanker brand Fido came in third with average download speeds of 42.52Mbps. Interestingly enough, Canada’s largest carrier by subscribership Rogers came in fourth place, with average download speeds of 38.95Mbps. Quebec-based regional carrier Videotron rounded out fifth place with average download speeds of 37.42Mbps. Speedtest.net gathered its data from 698,171 speed tests conducted across Canada. The average download speed across the country was 47.84Mbps, while the average upload speed was 11.99Mbps. Average network latency, or the time it takes for a packet of data to move from a device to a server and back, was 41 milliseconds. Telus has been on a hot streak lately, receiving praise for its network quality and network speed. The carrier’s first major victory was in September 2017, when PCMag awarded Telus the distinction of Canada’s fastest network. Wireless coverage mapping company OpenSignal then determined that Telus has Canada’s fastest LTE network in a February 2018 report. In May 2018, J.D. Power added that Telus had the best wireless network in Ontario, the best wireless network in Canada’s west region, and the second-best network in Canada’s east region.” Source: Speedtest.net ” Samsung hypes the Note 9’s battery life in new teaser 10 MobileSyrup by Brad Bennett  /  9d  //  keep unread  //  hide INSIGHTS Add note Samsung’s latest ad shows a nondescript phone from one of the company’s competitors quickly draining its battery from 5 percent to zero at an inopportune time The ad doesn’t show any footage of Samsung’s upcoming Note 9 phablet, but if this ad is any indication, it will feature a long-lasting battery. Leaks have claimed that the Note 9 will feature a 4,000 mAh capacity battery. That’s an upgrade over last year’s Note 8 battery, which is rated at 3,300 mAh. In fact, Samsung made the battery in last year’s Note smaller since it was recovering from the Note 7 battery fiasco. The company shrunk the Note 7’s 3,500 mAh battery to 3,300 mAh for the Note 8. This year the company is back to making bigger batteries. The end of the video cuts to a black screen with the date, August 9th, 2018 which is the same date that Samsung has revealed as its next Unpacked event, meaning that this teaser is almost certainly for the Note 9. The phone is also rumoured to feature a 6.4-inch display, Snapdragon 845 chipset and dual 12-megapixel cameras.” Source: Samsung Via: Engadget Telus Store Fort Saskatchewan Hours
