    This is called the iPad in Canada blog right? You might want to mention that Onlive is NOT available the te Canadian App Store, US Only. :(

    Right now it’s US iTunes store ONLY, you can search other country’s stores by clicking on the little flag in the bottom right of every iTunes store page.

    I checked UK and Canadian stores and the Onlive Desktop app is there. I managed to get a (free) legit US copy of the app, but without jailbreaking there’s no way I can install it.

    Do you think it will come out in the Canadian store, or is this a service like Hulu or Pandora that offer free services, but to Americans only? Do I jailbreak for this?

    Yeah, if it’s not available in Canada, why even bother to advertise it here.

    I set up a US apple id to download the app and it installed fine on my iPad (I’m in Quebec). The app runs smoothly, but apart from editing Office docs there’s not much to do yet. You can upload/download files using a web site files.onlive.com. No need to use a proxy.
