Weekend Reading: Your iPhone case personality, more Rogers LTE Max expansions and socially savvy parenting
We’ve got a great mix of articles that stood out to us this week, including what your iPhone case says about you, more Rogers LTE Max updates and how to be as socially savvy as your kids. Basically we’ve got you covered for light, exciting and educational reading all in one post! So kick back and catch up with this week’s edition of Weekend Reading.
What your iPhone case reveals about you
We thought we’d get things off to a lighter start this week by highlighting a graphic from Mashable on What Your iPhone Case Says About You. Are you a nerd? A diva? Perhaps a klutz? Check out their fun graphic of examples and see how accurate it is for you.
The description of the minimalist definitely fits my personality to a tee – but every now and then a girl needs some sparkle too, which lands me in the Diva category! How about you – are you toting a Rick Moranis heavy duty case or resorting to socks for phone protection?
More Rogers LTE Max expansions
Just last week we were pleased to announce our agreement with Videotron to bring LTE to even more residents in Quebec and Ottawa. This week we’re happy to let our customers know even MORE LTE Max expansions are underway for cities in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and British Columbia!
The news was shared on some of our favourite tech sites including CrackBerry, Brief Mobile and iPhone in Canada. Catch up on the latest developments and let us know if you’ve experienced the new LTE Max network yet.
Are you as socially savvy as your children?
Most parents nowadays have a fairly good understanding of the online world. In fact, one of our recent Rogers Innovation reports highlighted how the generation gap was decreasing, with 40 per cent of Canadians ages 18 to 24 using technology as a means to stay in touch with their parents.
But how confident are you that you really know what your kids are up to online? A new report from All Facebook revealed many parents are still in the dark when it comes to their children’s online activity, with a whopping 80 per cent of parents admitting they have no idea how to monitor their kids’ online behaviour. This may be why 85 per cent of kids aged 10 to 12 already have Facebook profiles even though the minimum age requirement is 13.
Have you had the chat with your kids about online safety? If not, check out our handy Tech Essentials section on online safety and get informed on passwords, social networks and more. As great as technology is for online exploring and connections, it’s important to educate yourself and your family on how to do it responsibly.
