Canadian Apples

Today Apple announced a bunch of stuff, most notably gorgeous new iMacs that look like huge iPhones. Interesting detail hidden in there for Canadians though. First off, the site is now up to date look wise (about fucking time), second the smallest iMac is only $100 more here than it is in BushLand!! Now obviously that’s owing to the most excellent exchange rate we have, not Apple, but it’s something I’m super pleased with. Third, that same exchange rate is so good that iWork is the same price in Canada and the US!! When’s the last time you saw that?

One more thing, iWork now includes Numbers, a spreadsheet application and John Gruber has the best quote about it: “Translation: Microsoft, go fuck yourselves. This is the “bring it on” release of iWork.”
