Canada's Rogers Wireless to support Wi-Fi calling in iOS 8

Rogers Wireless, a Canadian carrier, has announced that it will be supporting iOS 8's new Wi-Fi calling feature when it debuts. Wi-Fi calling within iOS 8 will skirt the issue of roaming fees while a Canadian user is in the US or overseas, much as VoIP apps like Skype can be used to avoid using cellular data. Rogers has stated that its customers that use its Rogers One Number service on their computer, tablet or smartphone can already make calls over Wi-Fi. Apple's iOS 8 is expected to be officially released this fall.



DuckDuckGo privacy-focused search engine to be added to Safari

Apple announced yesterday at WWDC that DuckDuckGo -- an anonymous, in-browser search option -- will be included as a built-in search option in future versions of Safari on iOS and OS X. The private search engine is of the first to be added to a major browser. DuckDuckGo does not track its users, and focuses on refined answers. Apple developers can try the search engine in Safari through the developer and beta release, with the official public launch due this fall.

    Rogers One Number app has been available for many months and I use it daily. This article is not news however, Rogers nickel and dime ripoffs are constant and Rogers prices are outrageous while their service is atrocious. Go with any company but Rogers.
