Around T-minus five minutes to hitting the road, I’m always inspired to download a new album or movie to my smartphone. Of course, completing that massive download normally either delays departure or distracts me from my navigational duties. The new Samsung GALAXY GS5 can fix that problem with its Download Booster feature, which lets you use both your Wi-Fi and Rogers LTE network connections at the same time to download files larger than 30MB even faster. Already have a GS5? Learn how to turn on Download Booster here. Still on the fence? Check out the review on CBC.ca.

Compare your profile

For me, the most addictive part of LinkedIn is seeing who’s been looking at my profile, as well as how they got there. Was it a search for my name? A shared connection? The possibilities are endless, and my curiosity is always piqued. This week, the professional social network announced a new feature that lets you see how you compare to your network. You’ll find it by navigating to “profile,” then “Who’s viewed your profile” and selecting the “How you rank for profile views” tab. The feature ranks your connections by profile views and also offers customized tips for how you can boost your own page. For me, this meant updating my summary description, joining a few new groups and adding some new keywords.

    Family flicks:

    One of my favourite family flicks would have to be The Burbs! One of Tom Hanks’ earlier films. Too hilarious! If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it!

    That’s a really good idea! I think Download Booster makes a lot of sense especially for those on the go. Movies would be the largest mobile downloads for me.

      I’ll have to check out The Burbs! Thanks Bhupinder

    Is there a reason that The Lego Movie is buy-only on ROD? I’m really excited to see it, but there’s no option to rent it at all.

      On June 17th, you can rent The LEGO Movie on Rogers On Demand for $5.99 (SD) or $6.99 (HD).
