Playbook Beats iPad

It must come as a shock to people in technology: The RIM Playbook outsold the Apple iPad at Future Shop and Best Buy. But it's not surprising as the RIM is over $300 cheaper, being one of the best priced tablets around. RIM'S not out of the woods yet: In December Gizmodo wrote that the tablet is killing the company, speculating that they loose money on each one sold. Meanwhile the American government, traditionally a big user of RIM's other products, have been dumping Blackberries for the iPhone, getting rid of almost 7000 in announcements earlier this month.

Later he came back with climbing gear to get his tangled parachute back. But the cops were on to him. They told him that it was illegal to climb trees in Toronto parks. Apparently it's an old bylaw. So he went home without his chute.
