ID4me is an internet service that enables its users to log in to many different internet services with one account. This is also known as "single sign on".
Unlike existing global single sign on solutions like the ones from Google or Facebook, ID4me does not track and analyze the internet surfing habits of its users. ID4me will make sure that the surfing habits stay secret.
Also, ID4me does not belong to an enterprise. It is an open standard that is maintained by a nonprofit organization. Anyone who wants to can participate. This way the users can chose freely between different ID4me providers and can also change the provider anytime.

Google seems to have made an inroad in the Canadian paid app struggle. The apps are appearing on the market slowly, but at least it is happening. Some individuals with different phones and differt versions of Android have had different experiences in locating paid apps. Not all customers from Bell or Telus are still restricted, but what is the reasoning for those who still are? For those of you with Rogers or Fido, I'd say it's about time.
