Hello world!

Yes, its a blog posting!  i know, long time no posting right?  Anyway, im typing away on my new bluetooth keyboard that i just managed to snag today, its been so long since ive typed on  a real keyboard and having a keyboard for my nexus tablet is just icing on the cake.  But enough about that, Im here to talk about something thats been bugging me for a long time now:

Canada treated as a third world country.  With technology I mean.

Yes, i had this revelation a while ago, that in terms of when new technology comes to the great north, we are usually the runt of the litter.  All the technology seems to get released in three areas first: the US, Europe, and Asia.  Then it gets filtered down from there and finally in either the second or third wave we are able to get our mitts on the newest phone.  Want to know whats really bad though?

Research in Motion, or RIM the makers of Blackberries and their Playbook are based and operate in CANADA! right at Waterloo, and all their new stuff gets released in the States first!  it makes me sad to see a Canadian company ignore its own people and just deny us our tech goodies.
