The Miscellaneous Links Of Interest Thread

I often run across stories that might be of interest to ehMacers, but really don't warrant a new thread every time I find one. With that in mind, I thought I would start this thread as a 'catch-all' for items that members find and want others to have access to the story.

I hope others find this useful and that it reduces the number of threads here by using this one for odd items of interest.

I will start with this:

Korean carriers to launch broadband-shaming 300Mbps LTE-Advanced network this year

Why are Canadians held hostage to such low speeds?

Michael's collects postal codes. I've given them various versions but none of them have ever been mine.

A lot of us in Southern Alberta have started using T0K0H0. Easy to remember. Happens to be Brockett on the Blood Indian reserve. Using that one should help throw the snoops data bases completely out of whack.

When my wife sent me to our local Michaels to pick up something she needed for Christmas, and they requested my postal code, I gave them H0H 0H0. The cashier looked at me and I told her "I get better deals here in St. John's than I do back home."

This is a great idea, Sinc. A very eclectic thread shall evolve.
