just remember this tuesday martin, there's 1000x idiots just like you who'd camp out for 12 hours...be early...go for 14 hours...hahah...stores aren't gettin many, as for mass shipments, that's a lie...they're only selling the extras that are made...most go to people who buy from apple, cuz they're already committed...
Luckily my apple store is in a mall that opens at 8am, so there will be no need to camp out in a long line, atleast i hope.
Wife's birthday was the 19th and I ambitiously got the idea to surprise her with the iPad2 versus the expected Nook Color for her. I got up early release day to order online, 3:47am success, but expected delivery date of 18th-25th. That left me the choice of going out to buy it and wait in line. Got in a line at BB at 3:30 and got out by 5:30. Played with it for a full week (discreetly, even testing out the March Madness app) and at our party on the 19th, surprised her with it. Even wrapped it in B&N packaging and all.
at normal time on the 11th. Ate a leisurely breakfast. Ordered 64 gig White wifi 3G AT&T at 5:00 AM. It arrived today.
That was easy.
If my Irish Wolfhound doesn't like you neither will I.
2012 13" MBA, 2011 11" MBA, 2010 15" MBP, 2 iPad3s, 1 iPad Mini, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. A bunch of iPods and an Apple TV.
My personal problem with waiting in the line (IPad2 coming out this friday) is:
I will order one in the Online Apple Store of my country as the first one as possible...
(say it will be aviable at 1am)
...then the order will pend, now waiting in a line from 7am...
(store opens at 10am, there chances in europe to camp 3 hours before. No one except very rare people are camping 12 hours+)
...AND getting a IPad2...
(I think im still lucky, cause i want a Black 64 GB wifi only which isnt the most popular at all)
...causes the problem that the online order is still on the run and i would get 2 and have to send one back IF POSSIBLE. I hope i can cancel it then.
But then and ONLY THEN if i get one waiting in the line.
(which i can hardly imagine)
I asked the biggest apple store today, they said they will have enough, no numbers, just enough...
...haha "spam" enough...
