Many Rogers customers across Canada reported losing mobile and internet services early Friday morning, with the provider eventually confirming the issue hours later. Rogers has not yet released an update on the cause of Friday’s outage.
This is a pretty huge outage, coast to coast, even impacting 9-1-1 service.
Roe vs Wade overturned (apple news).
I truly believe we’re witnessing the downfall of America.

Version 12.1, released today, brings a brand new implementation, however, which lets you populate a template document either from your contacts or a spreadsheet.
I’ll rarely make use of this, but pretty neat/useful nonetheless.

This past week was a bad week for democratic governance and Bill C-11. The decision to race through over 100 amendments without public disclosure or debate ran counter to basic democratic norms as the public will never know what changes were proposed in those secret amendments. Now government MPs are resorting to claims of misinformation for testimony they heard directly from one-third of witnesses. The harm that causes will last long after some extra Netflix money is added to the Canadian system.
I started reading Paper Girls when I heard there was a show coming out in a few weeks. I had it on my list of comics to read for a while. Really enjoying it so far.

That’s probably going to change with iOS 16 and the iPhone 14. Apple is planning major enhancements for the lock screen, including wallpapers that have widget-like capabilities.
Further, I’m told iOS 16 builds in future support for an always-on lock screen, something Apple was originally planning for last year’s iPhone 13. This would allow the iPhone to turn down the frame rate significantly on the lock screen and display quickly glanceable information—similar to newer Apple Watches.
Which of these apps should open a Google Meet link? I bet it’s not the one you would think.

FIDO’s current proposal has no mechanism for bulk-transferring passkeys between ecosystems. If you want to switch from an Android phone to an iPhone—or vice versa—you won’t be able to easily move all your passkeys over.
FIDO does plan to let users copy passkeys one at a time, so if you create an account with an iPhone and want to login on a Windows PC, Microsoft can create its own passkey for that service once you’ve authenticated through your phone.

Our healthcare system is in crisis, yet, somehow the answer to all that ails us, is more highways. Doug Ford has a bizarre fixation on everything automobile, yet his interest has hardly translated into anything meaningful. He forgave the ETR 407 a billion dollars in penalties. And by cancelling two years of plate renewals, he handed back over $2 billion and has yet to tell us where he will find the missing billion dollars a year it generates going forward.
These ads are not harmless, either, with many of the examples we’ve seen being for personal loans, a category that tends to be full of predatory practices. One user reports that they were sent one of these ads on a phone that didn’t even have an active SIM card in it.
Not ideal to say the least. Apparently one of the only ways to stop getting these messages entirely is to turn off RCS.
We’re finally getting more vault space!
