A happy employee is certainly a more productive one. Believe it or not, the best way to increase production is by cutting back on work time. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a long 1 hour break; in fact, just 10 minutes of internet surfing or Twitter checking is enough to produce positive results. Here are ways offices can make work more tolerable and enjoyable: Taking a short break between working hours gives the mind the chance to relax for a bit after hours of continuous stress, allowing it to refocus on the task at hand. The best way to get good results from your employees is by making sure they are focused. Short but unobtrusive breaks will give them this opportunity. Some companies go the extra mile by offering added benefits and office perks, like a TV or a game room, to better keep their employees relaxed.

The Internet has become a necessity for a lot of people. From the high-earning CEO, who makes business presentations, down to the adorable 6-year-olds who play games on tablets, the internet is simply something that every person must have. Speed, availability, and of course the number of people who need it are the three considerations you must make when choosing your TELUS Internet connection. Wireless Connection A wireless connection is ideal because it doesn’t require the user to connect his or her computer or handheld device to a line. The connection is very popular because it can be shared by a large number of people at the same time, as long as they are able to receive the signal. The most common wireless networking technology is Wi-Fi. The downside of a wireless connection, however, is that it is slower and less secure than a wired connection since anyone could access the network if it doesn’t have a password.

Apple’s iPhone line has been the first word in touch-based smartphones since the initial model came out in June 2007. The possibility of users sticking to the first couple of models for the longest time may be farfetched, but stranger things have happened. MarketWatch’s Quentin Fortrell notes, for example, a lawyer who used his 1st-gen iPhone as a car audio player instead of having to buy an iPod Touch. Why Upgrading Is the Smart Move While soldiering on with the first iPhone versions can be viewed as a mark of “loyalty,” Apple’s “planned obsolescence” tactics forces loyalists to upgrade. There are a number of reasons why you have to upgrade your iPhone at some point. The existing iOS is often the strongest factor, since the latest operating systems no longer support older iPhone units. The oldest model the current iOS 8 can support, for instance, is the 4S; anything older than that can no longer accommodate the platform.

Back in the time of cable TV-only, providers offered a wide selection of channels. That would have been a great come-on, but the downside was that many subscribers were only really interested in a portion of the channels, either because they understand the language or the material is something they like. This means that a good number of channels are wasted even though the subscribers are paying for them as part of the package. This issue is resolved by digital TV boxes that offer flexibility in content choices, as well as an option to add video recording capabilities for shows you’ve missed. Here are the benefits of wireless digital TV boxes: Tailored Viewing A customised channel package, such as the Optik® TV line from TELUS dealer Telus/Cambridge Electronics Incorporated in Fort Saskatchewan, includes a base package of regular channels that are viewable in standard or HD, but you can also opt for specialty channel packs.

Technology has changed the business world for the better. Even now, it is still shaping the landscape with more advancements and improvements, making many workplaces completely reliant on technology. You would not find a single business in Sherwood Park or anywhere else in the world that isn’t connected to the Internet. Is connection alone enough? Telus stores give you a rundown on the vital connectivity elements for a successful business. High-Speed Internet Strong connectivity is a must for any kind of business whether your employees are working at an office or on the road. It is necessary if you want to ensure that all the work is done. Like it or not, a slow connection will also slow down your progress, negatively affect employee performance, and decrease overall productivity. Creating a network also makes employees work together better and share resources.

It’s official: Edmonton is about to become the number one city in Canada with nearly ubiquitous and extremely fast internet services available for both residential and commercial sectors. This will be facilitated by Telus’ one billion dollar fibre optic investment, and the fair city of Edmonton will be the first beneficiary. This technology makes use of plastic or glass threads to transmit data as light pulses instead of signals through metal cables. This infrastructure investment is expected to reach up to ninety percent of homes and office buildings while boosting education, innovation and streamlined health care services in Edmonton. With this, the education sector is expected to benefit from a more enhanced telecommuting capacity, as well as interactive, virtual field trips. For the health sector, this technology is expected to support digitizing patient information and delivering primary care electronically, especially in e-prescribing medication.

It’s been almost a year since the release of the iPhone 6 and its numerous variations, and save from some concerns, the newest smartphone from Apple has been a steady “hot item.” If you’re looking for a new smartphone today, you’re highly likely to consider the iPhone 6 as one of your (if not your topmost) choices. There is, however, one prospect you must not ignore just yet: the older but still capable iPhone 5s. The 5s may look a bit dated when pitted against newer competitors like the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy Note, LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note in terms of several features, but Apple’s track record makes up for lost time and can be easily recommended to anyone. If you’re looking to buy a new smartphone today, you’d do well going with the reliable iPhone 5s when visiting a Fort Saskatchewan dealer such as Cambridge Electronics Incorporated.

As evidenced by the multitude of gamers strutting their wares on so-called “online battle arenas”, online gaming is experiencing a steady boom. In 2013, Spil Games reported that of the estimated 1.2 billion gamers in the world, 700 million play online titles. Yet, for a truly seamless gameplay experience, one needs to have a fast and stable internet connection. Online gaming is essentially hitch-free with a high-speed internet connection. Any gaming PC or console requires a steady amount of bandwidth in order to keep up with today’s faster-paced and predominantly hardware-intensive titles. Without the right speed, this scenario can’t be far behind: your character’s about to take the kill shot when your connection suddenly cuts off, and you “re-spawn” only to find out that your character’s been killed twice already—once while you’re taking the shot; and again, right after you came back to life.

Of course, before you can even get to use such features, you will need to carefully choose a mobile network operator that offers you the right services.

It’s hard to imagine a modern-day business running without the aid of the Internet. Since its introduction in the 80s, the Internet has revolutionized computer technology and communications.

Then again, internet speed varies from place to place across Canada, depending on a lot of factors, one of which is the source.

Touch-screen interfaces and a computer-like operating system might have become the standards of a modern mobile device these days, but back in 2007, a mobile phone offering all these in one device is almost unheard of. This made the iPhone among the most sought-after cellular telephones in Fort Saskatchewan and in other parts of the globe, and had, as the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs said upon the iPhone’s introduction, “reinvent[ed] the phone.”

As mentioned earlier, fibre optic cables are able to carry more information thanks to their greater bandwidth capacity than metal cables. For this benefit, fibre optics are less vulnerable to any external interference from nearby electrical equipment or power lines, even with a relatively thin and lightweight structure. In the case of fibre internet (FiOS), fibre optics have the capability to transmit large amounts of digital information over farther distances. Having the advantages of FiOS would require a longer and more complex installation process because this network needs its own fibre optic cables to operate in your home. This is why you’ll need the assistance of personnel from a from a TELUS store in Sherwood Park. Once properly installed, the FiOS would not be susceptible to any power interruptions or shutdowns because as a passive system, it doesn’t need power to be applied into the network.

Whether to get into the fandom for the first time or to upgrade from older models, people go through great lengths to grab Apple’s newest tech marvel.

Fort Saskatchewan Telus providers like Telus/Cambridge Electronics Incorporated are already offering the freedom of choice, starting at $20 a month for 125 channels and no less than 20 high-definition (HD) channels. With thousands of channels to choose from, however, building your own entertainment suite can be a chore. At the very least, you can start with a basic suite of 40 channels, including a handful of local ones. You’re left to choose the remaining 85 channels or so, conveniently grouped into theme packs from popular choices to sports. Selecting a theme pack gives you access to all the channels in that theme pack. If you still have room for more, you’ll have to select the rest individually.
