Steve Jobs Has Unforsaken Me. Wait, is that a word? Maybe, Steve Jobs Has Saken Me.

thumbs up

Remember how back in January I was bitching that I Steve Jobs had forsaken me as evidenced by the fact that I couldn’t use my iTunes gift card to buy iPhone apps because I’m in Canada?   Well, guess what, boys and girls??  That little issue has now be rectified1!

So the $50 iTunes gift card that I got for Christmas has now been reduced to:

itunes gift card

And I’m sure you are dying to know what app I purchased with this newfound wealth of iPhone app-buying potential.  Well, of late I’ve been hemming and hawing over whether or not to spend the whopping $1.99 plus tax for the 100 pushups app. Because I’ve been meaning to attempt the 100 pushups program again. And it seems like that would be easier if I had an app to remind me of how many pushups I need to do each day and time my rest breaks for me, rather than having a piece of paper that I constantly lose and then I have to go to their website and look up the amount of pushups and have to time my own rest breaks like a sucker.  Also, it keeps a log of your pushups and makes a graph. A graph, people!  How is a girl supposed to resist a graph?  But on the other hand, that’s $2!  Anyway, this is basically the argument that I’ve been having with myself for the last week or so, so when I heard that I can now buy apps with that gift card that’s been burning a virtual hole in my virtual pocket, the decision was made!  I think I’ll stay my 100 pushups quest on the weekend!

Image Credit: Since Dave thought it was hilarious that I went to Flickr for the “thumbs down” photo that I used on my previous post about this, I decided to defend my honour by taking a “thumbs up” photo of my own for this one. But now that I look at it I realize that my nail polish is quite chipped and I appear to have a cut on my finger that I had no knowledge of up until this point and also now that I’ve been examining this photo for so long I feel like my hand is grotesquely misshapen, with a ginormous thumb.  Way to go, Dave

  1. I think your hand is definitely misshapen as your thumb looks bigger than most of my fingers… and I have pretty big hands! 😀 But I suspect it’s just a perspective thing in reality, and likely related to our conversation earlier tonight regarding the disparate quality of photos of people taken at the same event on the same day.

    That’s great that the change was retroactive and not “we’ve made this change for all gift cards purchased starting… now.”
