I lament it as I only found out it existed on saturday. I loved the book and the show seems pretty faithful.

How far through the book does it get to before it stops?

I've never read the book, but there's a long list of differences on the wiki page

Also, the last thing to happen before the show got canceled was...

Caitlin got a job as jPod's boss

I'd really recommend the book if you crave a further jPod fix.

It would appear that the TV show has a slightly different focus than the book which in my eyes is no big issue as Doug Coupland is involved in the TV show.
Spoiler:
Although it's a shame it doesn't have the self referential elements where Coupland blackmails Ethan that are in the book.
.

All we can do is hope the whole series is released on DVD.
