    Wow, I just heard that a reseller in my city was closing and it was even mentioned on AppleInsider! It's weird to think other people know about us here in Waterloo... lol Seems like a lot of Canadian resellers are closing.

    So WTF does Apple expect?
    Allow dealers to make 3% margin on product
    Starve them for inventory but ship the hottest products to mass-merchandisers and Amazon.
    Sell to customers directly by mail when they find the dealers are out of stock
    Start opening retail stores in direct competition Ontario Apple dealers.

    I got out of Apple hardware retail in 1993, thought it was bad then...
