Yesterday Apple released an update to the iBooks iPad App. Version 1.1.1 includes a variety of new features and bug improvements. In the early beginnings Canadian iPad users had to wait for iBooks to be released along with the iBookstore.

Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy.
I couldn’t be happier at this news. Seriously, I have been waiting for Netflix to come to Canada even before Apple had the iPhone.

Are you a Windows user? Do you often multitask and wish you had a second monitor? Well, there is a new app that will let you turn your iPad into a secondary monitor.
If you don’t already have one, having an extra monitor allows you to move programs and windows around for maximum visibility and usage. Rather than going out and buying a separate monitor, you can … Read More
Before I get into the review – I wanted to let you guys know about the super-inexpensive but awesome Travel/Wall Charger that OrionGadgets has. First off, its only $10 with free shipping to Canada. This is going to cost you less than actually going to the Futureshop down the street.
