    No Apple Watch deals ehhh?!

  • Doesn’t look like it!

  • Mac


  • Tyler

    That’s disappointing.

  • Mac

    USA gets all the discounts!

  • Starts tomorrow!

  • Sadly, that is the case. It is their Thanksgiving bonanza, we just jumped on the trend like everybody else 😛

  • Gary Croxford

    The PureVPN link seems to be broken for me?

  • Fixed the link btw!

    Testing it now with, using PureVPN’s ‘Stream’ mode for Netflix. Getting:

    79ms ping
    29-39Mbps down

    I’m on Shaw Internet 150

    Netflix USA loads…titles take a while to actually stream, but they do and no proxy message error!

  • KS

    Is the 2 year deal like a contract?

  • Gary Croxford

    Awesome, thanks for that mate! 🙂 Think I’ll take them up on the offer in that case.

  • FragilityG4

    In Canada the word “sale” is often replaced with the word “tax”.

  • LadeeDa

    I’m researching Pure VPN. Some comments say torrenting not permitted. You also need to know if they comply with dmca notices or keep logs. Their price for 2 years is $2.45 US a month or a $50 Canadian. Lol

  • LadeeDa

    Your speeds are atrocious. That’s almost a 70% hit. Definitely not acceptable to me.

  • LadeeDa

    Yes. Cancel in 7 days if not happy. Private Internet access is often recommended but those in the west get poor speeds with them. But you are anonymous since PIA at this time doesn’t keep logs. That might change when Trump gets into office.

  • Gary Croxford

    Yeah I’ve not pulled the trigger yet as you have to jump through some hoops to get it working with Apple TV’s which we use a lot. But, as there’s a 7-day return policy, will still give it a go.

  • Walter Cooper

    I bought PureVPN last night after hearing a lot of positive reviews. thankfully it’s working great for me.. I had some trouble in teh start while configuring but their support team was active enough to get me through.

  • Gary Croxford

    Thanks for the note Walter. Going to go the whole hog and get the lifetime. 🙂

  • Walter Cooper

    my pleasure Gary 🙂

  • karinatwork

    Get the Instant Pot. So worth it.

  • We already use our slow cooker a lot…is this another appliance that will end up in our cupboards?!

  • karinatwork

    I bought mine this summer. Haven’t touched my slow cooker since. It also replaced my breadmaker (which I only use for dough anyway). For soups and stews and ribs, chicken wings… anything really. Stupid things like hardboiled eggs in 2 minutes, and even the freshest eggs peel no problem. Or even a cheescake, creme brulee, custard. I mean, this thing does it all. You do have to invest some time in it to learn it properly. I joined the Instant Pot FB group (last time I checked it had over 150,000 members), and I learned everything I needed there.

  • Don Huynh

    Mobile shop has the iPhone 7 32gb for $0?

    Any more details on that?

  • Their website doesn’t share any details. Assuming it’s going to be on an expensive monthly plan. Will try to call and find out more.

  • ticky13

    Their iPhone and non-existant iPad apps are horrendous.

  • KS

    Thanks for replying. I guess if Gary’s 150 Mbps is capped to 40 Mbps, my 50 Mbps would be too slow to stream Netflix. I’ll pass.

    On a side not, right wing leaders often tend to surprise us after taking over. In a good way.

  • haydenataylor

    Added a line to the Fido Account, 55$ (-10% discount) Pulse Plan, Unlimited Calling, Texting and 5GB of Data (3GB + 2GB for 24months)

  • Si2k78

    Fido is offering iPad data plan for $15/3gb. And 200$ subsidy for a iPad Air 2 on a 2 year agreement. What do you guys think? Are there better deals out there if your in the market for an iPad with data plan?

  • That seems pretty decent–the $15/3GB plan is a good one.

  • Si2k78

    I thought the same. I couldn’t find any equivalent plans any where else.

  • Thanks!

  • BB BB

    Unfortunately that plan is only available with the purchase of a new tablet

  • BB BB

    Try NordVPN. Not sure about Netflix though as everyone got blocked. Thousands of servers to try though and awesome applications.

  • YaBoiiii

    Harden up deals

  • Edmontonian

    I have PIA in Edmonton. Have used them for two years now and great speed here. Also as a bonus they DO NOT keep logs which for those who torrent is a safety feature.
