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.

Something interesting to note is that competition normally benefits the customer, doesn't it?

I think this is the first time I have seen the prices go up because of competition. Weird times.

Comment Re:iMacs, I will not go without extended on mine (Score 5, Insightful) 253

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.
