Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If you go to Vegas and see their show, you'll likely meat them afterwards on your way out. Teller speaks then, and both do photos and autographs for everyone. Truly an amazing experience!
It's true and I never thought of it that way- but we also often use American dimes here and nobody seems to care (or even notice). I never actually tried using Canadian coins while in the US before... could be a fun experiment!
I have to second this. I've used quite a few dedi hosts over time and iWeb has been the best by far (in terms of uptime and customer service)
Some TV's come with Netflix and (as mentioned by another user) web browsers. A lot of content out there is limited to specific countries; for example most Canadian TV networks (comedy network, space, etc) have TV shows available for viewing but locked to Canadian IPs; likewise for American networks and American IPs. Netflix, Amazon, etc, all do the same. If you could choose an exit node in any given country, you'd effectively have a nice proxy for these geographically locked services.
Several outlets reported on Wednesday that Samsung laptops had been found to contain a keylogger known as StarLogger right out of the box from the factory. However, upon closer inspection by security companies, the folder on the laptops that supposedly contained the malware was actually a directory that is part of Windows' multi-language support."

Are you my virgins?!
Oh god I hate that. And yes, at least for me, with two carriers and two phones in the last 3 years, had that same lock.
What you have is supplemental insurance. 'Private Insurance' would be the equivalent of what your government provides (eg OHIP in Ontario)- except provided by a private insurer. The OP meant that it is illegal for a private insurer to offer health care insurance as a competing alternative to the public health care system. Supplemental insurance on the other hand is perfectly legal. Supplemental insurance covers things that the universal system doesn't, like drugs, private rooms, eye and dental, etc.
Meh, not always lucky.
I have shockingly different experiences with Bell Home phone and Bell Sympatico (internet)
When my Internet stopped working, I called them, got some outsourced call center, they confirmed that there's a problem, sent my problem up to the test centre. Sometime in the next week, I get a call and have to re-explain the problem. Some time a week after that, the problem went away, the lights on the DSL modem went green again, magically, and nobody from Bell ever contacted me to let me know it's good now or what the problem was...
When I moved and my phone wasn't working, I called at roughly 9:30 AM and before 11AM the same day, a Bell van appeared in my driveway. Problem solved in no time at all.
