…but we’re huge in Canada!

National_canadian_flagAll the cool interviews that took place at Macworld are slowly but surely making their way out of the woodwork.

NewMediaManitoba.tv had a chance to catch up with Pat, our fearless product manager, at Macworld, and talk a little bit about (that was pronounced "aboot" by the way) VMware Fusion and its features like Unity mode, Dual SMP, and how it helps users run Windows on Mac

Looking at this video’s fantastic editing , especially in light of my own somewhat pedestrian video production attempts, is really quite impressive. Kudos to NewMediaManitoba.tv for making such great video podcasts.

    VMWare is great! Thanks for making an awesome product.
    When can we expect more virtual CPUs? I have an 8-way that can be better utilized.

    If you are huge in Canada, how come its so hard to find a discounting retailer in Canada for VMware fusion?
    After rebate, it is available in the US for $40
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/rebates/B000UK3GVA/ref=dp_rebates_1?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&s=software
    Your page http://www.vmware.com/landing_pages/fusion_rebate.html doesn’t list any Canadian retailers.
    Your retail page doesn’t list the CAD (the CAD is worth more, BTW).
    Any suggestions?

    Further, you Find a Retailer function doesn’t work for Canada: http://vmwareprod.clickcommerce.com/PageRenderer.action?actionName=plNewAdvancedPartnerSearch&vmwareExternalPLRequest=y says “US only”
    Neither Bestbuy.ca nor FutureShop.ca carry your product. Nor does Canada Computers. NCIX have it only as special order.
    Please advise!

    Amazon.com to Canada:
    Items: $59.99
    Shipping & Handling: $23.98
    Total Before Tax: $83.97
    Estimated Tax:* $0.00
    Import Fees Deposit: $9.09
    Order Total: $93.06
    Less rebate: (20.00)
    Total = 73.06
    Or post to my friend in the US:
    Total: $64.97
    Less rebate (20.00)
    = 44.97
    I’d tell him to chuck the box and send me the serial number.
    For that matter, if I spent a bit more at Amazon.com I think I would not pay postage.
    Where are your Canadian Retailers?

    http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/failedsearch.asp?keywords=vmware doesn’t sell it either.

    I agree with Martin – it is quite frustrating that there is not Canadian retailer for Fusion. The Apple Store sells it for $99!! and I am not sure about the rebate working either!
