iPad orders have started to ship in Canada. The big day for the iPad launch in Canada is on May 28th. If you haven’t pre-ordered your iPad you better be ready to get in line on Saturday. This is going to be an exciting week for people outside the USA that have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the iPad (except those who already have one!).

From the moment the iPad was released, people have been devising the most interesting iPad stands. So far we’ve covered the 89 cent iPad stand, the hockey puck stand, and the official Apple Dock and iPad Case (which I love). If you’re looking for a cheap iPad stand you can easily make one out of a coat hanger. Say what?! Yes, that’s right, a coat hanger.

Did you pre-order your iPad in Canada? The iPad’s arrival is coming in under a week. The first batch of orders had ship dates of May 28th. Then, a couple days after the May 10th pre-order date, ship dates were moved back to June 7th.
Now, the Apple website shows a pre-order ship date of just “June”. The iPad has been selling like hotcakes and supply is dwindling as … Read More

While cases are great for the iPad, sometimes it’s nice to just have no case at all and feel the iPad with all its glory.
And then sometimes it’s nice to express yourself with a unique iPad skin. Like with a Joker decal.
If you have ever shopped at Etsy before, you’ll know it’s essentially an online crafts store. The vast majority of items for sale are made by the sellers selling … Read More
There has been some buzz about people receiving bills for data use in excess of $4000 for a few days of service. I spent quite a few hours digging through posts and articles to try and locate said individuals to find out exactly what they were billed for. I was confident that they, or the Bell rep screwed up when setting up their Data Only plans.
This morning I have … Read More
The Canadian launch of the Apple iPad is scheduled for Friday, May 28 2010. At that time, aside from the device and accessories being available for sale at your local Apple Store, the 28th also marks the opening day for Canadian iPad App Store and iBookstore.
But is the Canadian iPad App Store already live? It sure seems like it!
If you were one of the few to go south and now … Read More
For a country that is still waiting to receive the iPad, the following policy change by Apple is good news.
Earlier this week, Apple was being blasted for its iPad purchases policy that did not allow the device to be purchased with cash. Instead, iPad customers had to use a debit card or credit card.
Originally this was thought to be a method of controlling gray-market sales, but was actually a method … Read More
For iPad users that are on twitter, your options are fairly limited. TweetDeck looks great, but it’s buggy and excessively slow to load. Twitteriffic is alright buy I’m not a big fan of the interface. Tweetie 2 is slated to be released as the “official” twitter app–it should be out today.
There was some noise earlier about a new iPad twitter app that has hit the scene. It’s called ShinyTweet and … Read More
Since I purchased my iPad I have been fighting an uphill battle trying to sync everything between my Macbook Pro, my iPad, my iPhone and my Windows server. While this is still an ongoing process, I have managed to sift through the dozens of “cloud” apps that claim to be the best at what they do and I am pretty close to developing a system that works seamlessly and is … Read More
