    Crackberry Crew,

    Much appreciated for all you guys do, as a Blackberry business user and personal user, I've tipped my hat a few times to you guys and here is another well deserved one:

    My beloved wife bought me a shiney new 16GB Playbook for Christmas and to say I was super ecstatic, is an understatement. Right out of the box this thing blew away all my worries and anticipation, I couldn't put it down for the first 2 weeks. Now here comes the really cool part. As I sit down in the AM as I always do every morning, with a cup of coffee and open up crackberry.com to see whats new I saw a posting about "Bestbuy Canada $299 for all playbook sizes". I almost jumped out of my seat! As I knew that there is price protection for at least 30days from Staples (where my wife bought mine) I asked her if she would mind if we could take the 16GB one back and I'd pay the difference for the upgrade, which of course is only $100. She was as excited as I was so off we went the next morning.

    Got to Staples, I told the guy about the Bestbuy event happening and the manager didn't even hiccup and said "Yeah I know about it and we are doing the same deal". So without a hitch, he took mine back and I paid my $100 difference for the 64GB!! I told the manager that I'm surprised there is no advertising on Staples website to say they match it etc. He said they will be and for now will match it anyway.

    I had to tell my story guys because if it wasn't for my morning routine and being a part of the community, I would have never known or probably would have been too late to do it. So thanks for all your hard work on the site and being 0-min with your updates Crackberry team!! Thanks again!

    And maybe a big help to someone else that is under the 30day mark with most major retailers wanting the cheap upgrade. -peace out.

    Yes i just wanted to say thank you as well. This site is so very helpful. I heard of the PlayBooks first going on sale in November through CrackBerry.com. After picking up my 16GB baby I came straight to this site to read all the articles, tips, tricks and how-to's of the PlayBook. CrackBerry team, your work is VERY much appreciated! Thank you again

    Ditto... I doubt I would have bought a Playbook but for this forum... and now with all the exciting things soon to be on our Playbook with OS 2 it's great to share the excitement here.

    With the new attitude toward playbook and the whole world now loving it, my mission has been accomplished - and hopefully that will no longer be necessary.. lol

    Seriously, thanks for Crackberry and keeping it in order it's been fun! A wealth of information and some great people.
