Popular 2-FOR-1 Cineplex benefit returns to give Members access to awesome entertainment
TORONTO, April 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Mobile phones and movies have a questionable relationship thanks to a few in-movie talk and texters. But Virgin Mobile isn't afraid to take center stage and state its love for movies and movie-lovers by offering a bucket-sized collection of Member Benefits for film buffs. Virgin Mobile Members get access to advance movie screenings, celebrity meet and greets and VIP access treats just by hooking up. Today, by popular demand, Virgin Mobile's 2-FOR-1 partnership with Cineplex is back for a sequel. What has your phone done for you lately?
Starting April 2nd, 2014, Virgin Mobile Members can grab two Cineplex movie passes for the price of one, every two weeks while quantities last. The offer was test run back in December 2013, and given five star reviews from our Members. High redemption and social buzz proved that two is better than one, and inspired Virgin Mobile to team up with Cineplex again to bring back the buzz.
"Only Virgin Mobile Members can say their phone gets them double the fun at Cineplex," said Joseph Ottorino, managing director, Virgin Mobile Canada. "We love offering Members awesome experiences. We're thrilled to partner with Cineplex to bring back this popular program that gets our Members access to a fantastic range of movie offers."

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
