Anyone else think its kind of sad that in a stamp collection for Canadian innovations they put in an electric oven, an electric wheelchair, and a blackberry. Don't they have anything else that was life saving and far reaching like the Pacemaker?

So on some ideas probably for some posts offices maybe, out of 4.5million of them, you might only get 2? Well, 4 would seem more reasonable at times though too, but still be lefting with just 2 probably doesn't unfind its interest?

Canada invented Insulin, a life-saving treatment for Diabetes - but these stamps look technology-related. I am surprised to see that the telephone has been omitted, but I believe these stamps are part of a larger collection and/or those inventions have already been put on stamps.

An apple "sheep" wouldn't have thumbed him down, as the apple crowd really doesn't care about the RIM peoples.. Then again it's not the droid platform we despise either(although an anti-droid statement is good for the "lulz").. It's a good chunk of the android people we encounter. :( So arrogant and rude sometimes(which is funny when you consider that they say the same about us.. Seems like a usa/china type misunderstanding to me..)

:(

Topic wise.. Pretty neat.. Would have been cooler back in the day when the average consumer sent mail more regularly.. I don't think I've honestly seen a stamp in years.. I always just hit up fedex whenever I need something sent.. :/

Uber irony points for a stamp honoring the device that is basically killing the postal system (as an extension of the PC). That's like KFC selling a steamed chicken filet on a whole wheat bun with no dressing... "Come to the home of the 750 calorie chicken wing to pick up a 100 calorie sandwich!"
