This Barney Miller clip from way back in 1981 may very well have predicted what the world is going through today.

Apple Inc. confirms that previously announced software that enables its latest smartwatch to perform electro-cardiograms has received Canadian approval but declines to predict when it will be available for download.

So, why and what is the delay, or the reason???

Why even mention the fact that it might or will be coming to Canada... sometime... again...???

Not surprising.

Approvals by the Canadian government, even for items approved by the US or EU or both is slower than pouring bitumen on a cold day. We've been waiting for an upgraded Daikin heat pump unit since last November. It's approved in Japan, the US and the EU but not yet by the CSA.

Why?

I don't know.

Nobody knows.

Daikin is frustrated and P.O.ed
