Rogers


Your chance to win $25,000 from Rogers 1

Rogers was the first to introduce a full Windows 8 mobile experience, and now they want to give you the chance to experience another first of your own!

To enter for your chance, simply log onto Rogers’ Facebook page, launch the app, and share your wildest (and boldest) dreams in 200 words or less.

I have the pleasure alongside four other judges (Dan Bader, Maria Shapiro, Michael Caswell, and Derek Malcolm) to select 30 finalists of all entries to move onto the next round – public voting.

Between Dec. 3 and Dec. 12, 2012, you – the public – will be able to read and vote for who you think deserves to win the grand prize.  You may vote for a story once per day.

You will have a shot at winning one of the following prizes:

– One grand prize of $25,000 to make your dreams come true

– One of ten Windows 8 devices, valued at approximately $1,000 each

The deadline to submit an essay ends Nov. 21, 2012, and the voting period closes on Dec. 12, 2012.

Enter here, and good luck!

Rogers One Number – Rogers Redboard

Introducing Rogers One Number. This new service exclusively from Rogers lets you talk, text and send picture messages, and video chat with other Rogers One Number users, all from your computer using your existing phone number. By using Rogers One Number, all calls to Canadian numbers, video chats with other Rogers One Number users and outgoing wireless text messages are free.

How might you use it, you ask? Well, if you’re like me and you’re always on the go, family and friends can now call your number – the same one they’ve always used – and rather than leave a voicemail (again!) you can have it ring on your computer or up to five phones of your choice so you’re always reachable when you want to be. Or, if you spend a lot of time calling that special someone, you can switch the talking onto a computer with Rogers One Number and you’ll no longer use up your daytime mobile minutes. And, if you want to take it a step further and stare into each other’s eyes, you can seamlessly turn the call into a video chat with the click of a button.

Rogers One Number is available for free to eligible Rogers wireless customers, so there’s really no reason why you shouldn’t head over to www.rogersonenumber.ca and sign up right now. Once you’ve given it a try, let us know what you think by leaving us a comment.

How will you be using Rogers One Number?
