Google Call launched – Call any phone in Canada or USA for Free

Google Call was just released today. I just downloaded it and tried calling a couple people and it works amazingly well. You can now call any phone in Canada or US (including all cell phones and landlines) for free in Gmail!

Click here for more information.

Gmail voice and video chat makes it easy to stay in touch with friends and family using your computer’s microphone and speakers. But until now, this required both people to be at their computers, signed into Gmail at the same time. Given that most of us don’t spend all day in front of our computers, we thought, “wouldn’t it be nice if you could call people directly on their phones?”

Starting today, you can call any phone right from Gmail.

Calls to the U.S. and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates. We worked hard to make these rates really cheap (see comparison table) with calls to the U.K., France, Germany, China, Japan—and many more countries—for as little as $0.02 per minute.

Dialing a phone number works just like a normal phone. Just click “Call phone” at the top of your chat list and dial a number or enter a contact’s name.

You can download it by visiting www.gmail.com/call

Sportchek – Free Skate Sharpening until August 30

Sportschek is offering Free Skate Sharpening from August 4 – August 30, 2010. The deal is available in all Vancouver locations. You don’t need a coupon or anything to take advantage of this deal. Simply bring your skates in and drop them off at the skate sharpening booth. There is a limit of three skate sharpenings per customer per visit.

You can click here to find the Sportschek store near you.

Since The Forzani Group owns Sportschek and Hockey Experts, Hockey Experts has the exact same Free Skate Sharpening offer. We posted about it here. Sportschek’s skate sharpening always seems to be a hit or miss. I much prefer the way Hockey Experts sharpens my skates. They are much more consistent and I love the new Blackstone Flat Bottom V (FBV) method.

Hockey Experts will be offering all customers Free skate sharpening from August 4-30. There’s a limit of 3 free skate sharpening per customer per visit. You don’t need a coupon or anything to take advantage of the deal. Just bring you skates to the sharpening booth.

I get my skates sharpened at Hockey Exports and highly recommend them. They always do a great job and do about a million times better job then Sportschek.

Hockey Experts is also one of the few locations in Vancouver that offers Blackstone Flat Bottom V (FBV). I’ve got it done the last couple times and have noticed a huge improvement and highly recommend it as well. Check out Blackstone’s website for more information about the FBV.
