Eggs are sign of new life.
Bunny is a sign of hopping around with glee.
So hop around because
you are given a new life to enjoy.
Happy Easter, Friends!
This post was challenged by an article in Toronto Star, stating that many Canadians think they are smarter than they are, when it comes to understanding the technology they use.
First, we need to clarify that we are talking about not any technology savvy, but mobile device savvy. Do you know about your smart phone roaming service, data usage and online security?
According to ComScore data from June 2012, published on mobilesyrup.com, there was a total of 21,721,000 wireless subscribers in Canada and 54% of them own a smartphone. So, the odds are: you own one too.
The survey, mentioned in the article, reports that 60 per cent of Canadians are convinced they have got a handle on their technology, giving themselves a “B” or higher for overall knowledge. But only 4 per cent actually earned that B — the majority of them falling far short.
This made me curious and I wanted to test myself. I did the same like the most of Canadians: I estimated my score to “B” and continued answering the tech-savvy questions. Some of them had only one answer, others had more than one correct answer. So, you should be careful and give more than one answer, when is indicated, as otherwise your answer will be partly correct. At the end you will see if you have been able to match your estimation …
and here is my result and I am proud to say I actually managed to score B!
Underneath the result you will find a list of your incorrect answers (including partially correct ones), but you will not get the right answers. There is a link next to the each one, which leads you to a page with further information and explanations:
So, now it is your turn. Are you curious to test you self? Go to the Rogers’ Techessentials website.
Well, not me.
The weather changed so quickly. Yesterday, it was double digits on the plus side and was sunny, and warm. People wore their shorts and t-shirts … and look at this now: flurries, strong wind, low visibility. It’s another winter storm.
