Big Day for Canadians

Wow today is going to be a huge day for all Canadians.  First thing this morning I got an email and as soon as I saw it I wondered how Crazy some Canadians are going to be today shopping for this NEW product that has come out on the market.

You may be wondering what this big product is.....The iPad 2!!  Our society has clearly become technology obsessed with Apple and many other companies.  For any US followers you have already been able to  purchase your iPads though Canadians had to wait til today.

I could not believe when I was hearing on the news that people were lining up in advance to get this product and people were paying over and above the price to get their hands on one.  Personally to me this is crazy.  First off this is not the first of its kind.  There is the iPad one on the market, sure there are going to be upgrades and fixes.  Though if it is going to be anything like the iPhone you may as well buy the first one and wait for a few years as the iphone came out in 2007 and its only 2011 and we are already on iPhone 4.

The way I see it either get the original and be happy with it or don't buy anything and wait for a few years.  Their electronics if worth their price should last more then the a few years.

The only good thing is that during this time of economic struggle people are upset with the cost of fuel, food and jobs being lost.  Apple is surpassing its goals on profits.  So at least someone is not struggling ;-p

As the saying goes "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer"

Enjoy your iPad Canada!

Stopping by from Bloggy Moms to say hello and make new friends. I am still confused as to why I would need an iPad. I do a lot of writing...hence my blog and I feel that I need a full keyboard. I decided on the airbook.

I have to say it is always funny when people go crazy over something that you know is going to have issues. Can't wait to have an iPad of my own though (probably when a family member upgrads though, LOL). I am a new follower from BMBF.
