Canadian Tivo

BOL recently mentioned that Tivo is coming to Canada. And guess what, it's here.

It's $199 at Future Shop and they'll even give you a Tivo branded wireless network adapter for free. It's $198 at the Brick but a Wi-Fi adapter is going to cost you almost $70.

I can't seem to find it at Best Buy but they do have an information page about the Series 2 Tivo.

Best Buy Matches US Prices

As other retail stores are adjusting their prices with the mighty Canadian Loonie in mind, Best Buy has followed suit.

It really freaks me out sometimes, I still add the difference to American prices. It's going to be years for me to get used to this.

Speculation, Guesses and Rumours. Oh my!

With all the uncertainty of late about the upcoming to never release of the iPhone here in Canada, I have done some leg work to get to the bottom of this.

Last week I dropped in at the local Rogers store and asked them when we might see a release of the iPhone. The response I got from the clerk seemed so bogus you know they have boxes of them in the back collecting dust.

His reason for no release in Canada yet is due to Linksys having the trademark on the name. What? Wasn't that cleared up months ago? I guess no one told him about the third iPhone.

When I attended Apple Demo Days I had  to ask the Mac guy about a release of the iPhone. He told me that Fido was going to get it. Fido has a 3G network, so that might make sense if we're going to get the rumored 3G iPhone that Steve talked about in London.

Again thanks again MacSurfer for the traffic.

Make Me Work For It

Demonoid is back up after it's downtime, unfortunately this is the message I receive when I visit the site.

We received a letter from a lawyer representing the CRIA, they were threatening with legal action and We need to start blocking Canadian traffic because of this. If you reside in Canada, that is the reason you are being redirected to this message. Thanks for your understanding, and sorry for any inconvenience.

Of course this slowed me down by about 5 minutes. Don't tell the CRIA. Besides music is the last thing I download, I have iTunes for that.
