Today Canadians are taking a Civic Holiday, which is celebrated on the first Monday of August. In Newfoundland, it’s called Regatta Day, in Saskatchewan it’s called Saskatchewan Day, Nova Scotia call it Natal Day, Torontonians call it Simcoe Day and Ottawans call it Colonel By Day. The list goes on forever.

So if you’re Canadian, you’re probably up at your cottage and not reading BlackBerry Cool. Don’t worry though, RIM’s official previewing of the Curve 8520 isn’t until tomorrow so you aren’t missing much today.
