After yesterday's visit to Futureshop, I'm still really excited about the iPod Touch. So I've been doing some research on my possible future purchase and I'm a little annoyed.
Last time I checked the Canadian dollar (aka the Loonie) was trading higher than the American dollar. Did retailers not get the memo? I know there's more to it than that, I'm just choosing to ignore economics, market forces and international money markets. Ok?
Thinking I'd save $30 over on the US site I discovered that they don't ship to Canada. Damn you Steve!
Just another example of Apple playing to the home town crowd. Maybe they would have a greater worldwide market share if they didn't subsidize sales at home at the cost of foreign consumers.
Of course when and or if I ever get the Touch, hopefully I won't have to wait very long for 3rd party applications. All praise the mighty SDK.
