Well, after half a day of waiting in a Best Buy parking lot in Vermont, I’m a very lucky Canadian who now has an iPad. It’s sitting on my lap as I type. Stay tuned, I’ll have more on the iPad this week right here on the blog and on CTV Montreal.
I had to go to an Apple store at a suburban mall today to get my iPhone 3GS replaced (The screen was abnormally dark, wreaking havoc on the auto-bright setting) and about 100 metres away a store seemed very familiar…
