    I've search and haven't seen this discussed anywhere, but did anyone else notice that Apple dropped the price of the 16 Gb Touch on Tuesday from $449 to $419 in Canada, but left it at $399 in the US? I think Apple's actually taking steps towards recognizing the dollar parity! Did this noticeably happen on any other products?

    (And now, the fact that I was able to buy my Touch on sale after xmas for $399 is all making sense... as $399+$20=$419 ;) )

    I noticed that as well.

    Also noticed that 16GB versions are $399 and 8 are $299 at FutureShop and Best Buy, when on sale. These are the regular prices at Costco, I believe.

    When I bought mine on January 30th at Future Shop in Canada, they matched the US price of $399. I didn't even have to ask for it.

    I bought mine a week ago at CND449 from an apple store but after steve's keynote, they had a price adjustment to CND419. So, I went back to the store yesterday and got refunded CND50 + tax. Price of the old ipod touch without the software upgrade is at CND399. So, I got my upgrade through iTunes yesterday for CND20. So, yeah, they took that into account:)

    the price has been adjusted twice...

    it went from $449 to $399 by mid or end of November 07, and now back to $419. (I could have swear it was $429 yesterday but apparently it was not. Don't think they would change twice in a week).

    Anyway, why did the price go up this week? I don't know, but it does not make sense. The Cad$ is still on par with the US$ and some of the products are the same price in both stores, but most are a little higher in the canadian one. :confused:
