After every trip to Vancouver, I start thinking about moving there, but soon reality sets in. Everything is a lot more expensive, even taking into account currency exchange rates. Home prices are very high and I don’t want to go back to renting again.
Since Rogers is the only GSM cell phone provider in Canada, their data prices are very high so the iPhone will be a lot more expensive if and when it becomes available there. Finally there’s this: iPods, recording media, etc. include a copyright fee in their price, assuming everyone is a pirate.
