Wifi Wiki

A new site has just launched that works on a wiki basis to list all the wifi locations around Canada. I would encourage everyone to cooperate on that project! It can be found at http://wifiwiki.ca

iPhone in Canada?

Jonathan Ratner over at the National Post has written an article that quotes analysist who think that Apple might release details of Canadian carries for the iPhone.

Does anyone really care about this though? With the current pricing of Canadian data plans, unless you have spare thousands lying around, you can’t really use the phone the same way that our American cousins can.

Perhaps our only hope is the upcoming wireless auction

Update: Here is a few links about the costs of Canadian wireless data plans compared to the rest of the world.
