Another typical bank identity theft email scam.

This time supposedly from one of Canada's biggest banks, BMO. The email is spoofed to appear as if it comes from the bank. There is the typical poor grammar and formatting.

The "Click to Login" link points to a site with a .jp URL.

From that point forward, the pages have a legitimate look because they have been ported from actual BMO pages.

Here are a few screen captures.

However, can't get over the panning jitter and frame dropout on HD content. You just don't get this with the same content when viewed on an HD cable feed.

I find I have to look away when there is any significant panning in a high-quality streamed video feed.

Anyone else experience this? It's not a Roku problem per se. It comes up with pretty much any streamed content, be it over Roku, Chromecast or what-have-you.

Black Friday 2016 is big in Canada too.

We've seen this the past several years. In fact over the past two years, Black Friday has been the biggest single shopping day of the year, surpassing the previous record day, Boxing Day, by as much as a quarter.

Want some evidence? Here are the shopping flyers that landed on my doorstep this evening. I pity the poor newspaper delivery person.

Tech flyers include those from Best Buy, Visions Electronics, Staples, London Drugs, Walmart.
