Nike+Ipod Sport Kit in Ontario, Canada?

I am having a difficult time locating the Nike+Ipod Sport Kit in Canada. doesn't have it listed in their store and is just a horrible [but cool looking] website. My google-fu is failing me miserably and I was hoping that someone has seen these around. I called a local [Kitchener] Apple reseller and they say it should be available in 2-3 weeks. My greedy little hands cannot wait that long. :) Can anyone help?

Canadian Border Patrol and Legal History

What legal history record can the Canadian, US border patrol sleuth out, and what do they care about? I am going on tour with a musical group from NY to Montreal. I heard that when passing the border with a van with music equipment, they can be very scrupulous and even do background checks. I have a non-felony on my record in Chicago, in which I won the court case, but never sent the $300 to my lawyer to finish the expungement process. Will they be able to sleuth out this information at the border? How have your experiences been at the border?

How to get another foreigner into the US?

Can I get my fiance in the US? I'm a Canadian grad student in the US on an F-1 visa. My fiance is a citizen of New Zealand. We're looking for a way to bring her here that will let her work (we're both far too poor to make things work with an F-2). Right now, her entering the Green Card lottery seems to be the best option, but is there anything we're not thinking of? [more inside]

Planning now for better opportunities for my daughter

When it came time for me to think about where my life was going, my parents let me know a couple things: - they made enough money that the Canadian government wouldn't let them off the hook for helping to pay for my education, so student loans were reduced. - they weren't going to/weren't able to help me with paying for my education anyway. Consequently I never went to college or university. I've managed all right without any training or degrees, though not as well as I likely would have. I suspect I will never have time/opportunity/money to fix this. My daughter will be born in late June. What can I do now (in Canada) to make sure she has better opportunities than I did?

Tim Hortons luddism ?

Why does one of the biggest coffee franchise across Canada will only accept cash as a payment method ?

Canadians are so friendly I'd like to be one...

On my sister's behalf: What is the best chance for my husband (and therefore me) to immigrate to B.C.? He is 53 (not good according to the Canadian point system), and has a great offer of work from a friend in Victoria who is a designer/builder of homes. My husband would be hired as a foreman, as he's a highly skilled and experienced carpenter, and is capable of managing and training crews. His formal education doesn't go beyond high school, his English language skills are good (but not his French), he has no criminal record, and he's in very good health. [more inside]
