Agree completely. First I wanted a Nook Color. Sorry, not in Canada. Then I wanted a Kindle Fire. Sorry, not in Canada. If Kobo can get this thing selling in Canada, they might just get my hard earned money just to save me jumping through fire-ringed hoops to get one of the others.

I would assume the Canadian company Kobo would be selling this in Canada ;)

You have basically described my situation in the past regarding the Nook and now the Kindle Fire. Even if I get the Fire when it comes out, it would be severely lacking in content so the Kobo offering is much more appealing to me.

The problem I have with buying an extended warranty on a mac is that they are already charging a premium for the hardware. If they expect me to pay that then I expect them to deliver a product that is engineered to last. We all know they are using fairly standard pc hardware now though so that expectation is a little unreasonable. I suppose it's for this reason that I have a problem with being expected to pay an additional $200 so my overpriced hardware is covered should something go wrong... or maybe I'm just cheap.
