Reserving the phone just means that I don't have to wake up early and stand in line to get one from the supplies received by Rogers or Apple Store… but it will take another week or two before it is shipped to the right location for me to pick it up.

In my opinion, reserving a phone should mean that out of supplies already to sent to all locations, reservations should be helped first and then walk ins.

I received an e-mail today saying phones were being allocated to the reservation system and to not worry if I don't receive my phone right away. It also says I can always go wait in line.

Nice marketing scam.

I guess that way they can feed the boom while knowing that your business is already guaranteed

I got that same email yesterday, and they also mentioned that they took my $40+tax, which is refundable.

Nexus Prime was supposed to be announced today, but Google and Samsung postponed. Rumours that it is in respect for Jobs' funeral and/or there may be some patent issues to get sorted out.

Nexus Prime and Android 4.0 launching on Wednesday at an event in Hong Kong.

Browsing is slow on the iPhone 4; painfully slow compared to a PC.

It fits in your pocket. When you've got a few extra seconds it lets you check your fucking emails and play Words With Friends.

Is fucking emails the next generation of sexting?

My 4s is coming today. Hopefully it's worth the upgrade from my crappy Telus 3G.
