Odd as it may seem, Amazon, the bellwether of online shopping, is marketing actual stores. The retail giant is testing a smart convenience store concept in Seattle that lets shoppers grab-and-go without dealing with cashiers or money.
Why would Amazon bother? Because like a growing number of retailers, it sees a huge opportunity to breathe new life into brick-and-mortar stores and streamline an experience that has increasingly resulted in customers feeling overwhelmed with data.
Today is Canada Day, and this is extra special because it’s Canada’s 150th birthday (also known as Canada 150).

As 2015 comes to a close, it’s that time of year for the annual “best of …” or “favourite thing of 2015.”
This post will be focusing on the apps that I used the most this year, so much that I consider them my favourite apps of 2015. Some of these apps might not have come out in 2015 but some have been significantly since last year’s post: Favourite Apps of 2014.
Some of these apps are just available on only one platform (just Android or just iOS) but some of them are multiplatform in which they are on both Android and iOS and have a web app as well.
The links to download these apps will be in the form of “Get on Google Play” or “Get it on the App Store” pictures after each app description.
On March 15th 1985, the very first .com domain was registered. The company with first domain, was a company called Symbolics, (which has since defunct). This was about a year after the World Wide Web was first invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.
Symbolics was a computer company that started in Massachusetts. If it Symbolics hadn’t registered the first .com domain. Then we wouldn’t sites like Google.com, YouTube.com or even TheCanadian Techie.com.
Today (February 8th 2015), marks the 10th anniversary of Google Maps.
Google made the announcement official on their Google Lat Long blog and had this to say:
For 10 years Google Maps has made it easier to navigate and explore your world. If you hopped in your DeLorean for a trip back to before 2005, you’d remember the days when we were all dependent on paper maps, print-outs, post-its and sometimes even a compass for directions! Getting from point A to B is something we do all day, every day—from finding the fastest way to get to work, to dropping the kids off on a carpool route, to meeting friends for drinks at a new spot—so it should be as easy as possible. That’s why we created Google Maps and why we’ve spent the last 10 years figuring out better ways for you to get around.

Here’s to another 10 years of Google’s innovation and improvement to their existing and future products to add to the “Google experience.”
