What's really stupid is that they just announced this thing 9 days ago. I don't think anyone would of complained if they said "We will start shipping April 1st" or even May 1st. Then the shortage would of been much less. Why announce it and then put it up for sale 9 days later when you know the demand is going to far outweigh the supply?? It's really just dumb. You really piss off your customers. Very poor planning and strategy imo.

No issues picking up mine at my local Apple store today. It's clear now that the Apple stores get much bigger quantities than BB and Targets.
Moral of the story here is if you want your choice of model and want to be sure you get one then you better show up early to an Apple store... Otherwise it's a gamble.
Went to Bestbuy at 4:15, 15th on line, 4:30 gave out tickets, ran out of Black 16gb wi-fi at person # 10, left empty handed (I am not settling). Oh well. By the way, persuaded the guy behind me not to upgrade his 7 year old son's Ipad 1 when his son never complained about speed. He didn't know that the Ipad 2 would have the exact same screen and resolution?! He just walked off (By the way, his son wasn't with him).
1st post here and first time Apple owner...but getting to the point, I went to Best Buy where they only had 20 and already handed out the tickets, so that was a no-go. Went across the parking lot to Wally World and that one only received 5 and I was like 10th in line. I asked why people are waiting when they say they only have 5, and people were hoping that folks ahead of them credit cards would be declined...
The search continued and I went to the Target that is nearby and all they had were 64GB wifi models which was not what i wanted so I passed. It was no line there and it is about 5:30PM. At this point I'm throwing in the towel and about to head home and remembered it is a authorized Apple dealer named PeachMac not far away. Called them up and they had everything but 16GB models. So, I went there and at at the door I was asked what I wanted and the lady walked to the back and grabbed my 32GB White wifi ipad2, put my name on it and asked me to stand in line to check out. Easy as cake...
Long story short, be prepared to shop around...lol
Bytheway, i'm in south Metro Atlanta near Peachtree City, Ga.
iPad Mini - wRD, Black, 32GB wifi
iPad (3rd gen) - Black, 32GB wifi - Sold on Ebay
iPad2 - White, 32GB wifi – Sold on Ebay
Are you actually blaming Apple because their device is just too damn popular?

I went to my local Verizon store about 3:15 and was first in line. Verizon employees were clueless about what to do but finally gave me a piece of paper and told me to fill it out to hold what I wanted. They had 2 32g and 2 64g models which was fine with me since I wanted a 64. So it was worth waiting nearly 2 hours to get the one I wanted. I got the smart cover but think I may want to purchase some sort of case for extra protection. I love my new IPad!!!
i have no interest in the iPad 2. I have an interest in the iPHONE 5 and may give that a shot in September, when I hear it's coming out. This would be my first iPhone, I've been using a Droid for almost 5 months.
Sorry for going off topic. I'm just not too thrilled about 4g, tiered data etc. (Verizon). I think I will also be interested in iPad 3 which I'm sure a demo is probably laying around somewhere.
HST in Vancouver is everywhere so I can't get away with that. I'm planning on getting my iPad 2 at a London Drugs somewhere. The Apple Store in downtown can get a bit crazy.
So its like every apple store then?
