Just go to the LCBO. Likely to be less of a lineup, and the selection is much nicer.

Apple, and thier and proprietary BS.

I bought an iPad2 and I have a bunch of USB power adapters... but unless I plug the iPad cable into the the USB adapter that comes with the iPad, it doesn't charge So if I want to have chargers in multiple rooms, I have to go get another apple approved adapter, and as usual, they charge twice as much as the rest of the world for a simple item.

Thanks, at least I won't have to pay Apple's ridiculous prices if I need to get a new charger.

It would still be nice if i could just use the adapters I have, but that's Apple.

Deebo,

always check monoprice.com first.
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=112&cp_id=11201&cs_id=1120102&p_id=7865&seq=1&format=2

The drawback to Monoprice, and the reason shops still get my money, is the time factor. When I need a cable, I typically need it now. Not a week from now. And unless you're buying several items, the shipping costs alone eat into a significant portion of any savings.

That said, if you plan ahead, or can afford to wait, they really do have good prices.

$2.50 for an HDMI cable at monoprice with a comparable cable for $60+ at futureshop? I'm willing to wait a few days. :)

Thats why I love my Starbucks...its so expensive, i never have to wait in line ;)

Then I guess you've never been to one in Waterloo. I visit 2 locations and there are times when the line is long enough to make me turn around and leave. Then again a line of 10 at one of them is long enough to be out the doors.

Haha - the one on University?

Nope, the one in Uptown Waterloo. University was like that but they rearranged the line. It takes 20 there to be out the door now  ;) Still happens sometimes with Laurier across the street, but Uptown is the worst.

I'm trying to remember where the one uptown was....that the one on King by the LCBO?

I can attest to Monoprice as well. Lots of high quality stuff there. There's a nice iPad 2 case on there as well for $6.XX

Places like Tigerdirect and Canada Computers have reasonably priced HDMI cables.

Same with Walmart, I got a 20 foot HDMI cable for $20. Can't beat the price.

If you live out West, there is a place called "princess auto" (Kind of like a cross between Canadian Tire, and Active Surplus) that sells HDMI cables for $20.
