This quarter SPECTRUM Cambridge Chamber Magazine issue came out.  If you’ve been paying attention to the media recently you’ve noticed that Huawei has been making a lot of headlines. In the past year, the CEO daughter was held in Vancouver on suspicion of inside trading in Saudi Arabia. This whole ordeal has opened the eyes of many people in North America of just exactly what Huawei is doing. The bigger question is this Chinese technological advance company comes with some great features at a very low cost. the Huawei p20 is one of the most advanced cell phones with an amazing camera technology.

Ways to Pay!  All with Online convenience

Ways to Pay! All with Online convenience

by: Adam

I had recently received my business insurance renewal policy and they told me about the convenient ways I can pay them, which were by cheque or credit card. I noticed the letter advised me there would be a 2.5% charge for using a credit card for payment. Immediately, I called the insurance company to ask why they are charging this extra percentage. I was advised that they are entitled to a service fee. I disagreed. So I made a phone call to the Canadian Consumer Affairs, and challenged this disagreement in question. Their response was interesting. It is not illegal, however, it is against the terms and conditions with the credit card company to increase a percentage against payment. Knowing this, I had to call the credit card company directly, and ask the question as to why I am getting charged 2.5% on top of my insurance fees. To be…

As a long-time Android user, I really looked forward to this Keynote as I have been gearing up for a big change in my life: to go from Android to Apple. Before you get your knickers in a knot, as much as I’ve enjoyed my Android, I’ve felt this change coming for a while. My laptop is a Macbook Pro, I’m an avid user of Apple TV, and my workstation here at FPM3 is an amazing 27” iMac. I love my Apple, but for some reason I could never justify the price of the glorified iPhone. I thought with the release of the iPhone 7, I would…
