    The people waiting in line for days in the cold need to have their heads checked. Mine is PRE-ORDERED and will be deliverd to my house on Friday. I will be wearing pajamas and drinking a beer when I open the door to receive it. Good luck all you people standing in line with the mayhem just to get them same result lol

    Never!!! iPad was a gift and I had my iPhone 4 delivered via Verizon wireless online. I totally forgot about picking up the device from the Apple Store. I was worried about company discounts and such as they usually require that you order online.

    That's what I would have done. Not that serious for me. I hate crowds and people will be insane.

    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    Does that automatically put you at the front of the line?

    You Americans who pre-ordered are lucky that you can get it delivered to your door on day one. Many of us aren't so fortunate.

    As a Canadian who doesn't live in Vancouver or Toronto, pre-ordering would mean waiting until the Wednesday following release before it arrives at my door. And that's assuming the lazy UPS guy rings the doorbell instead of leaving the "We missed you" tag and taking off.

    I've had too many bad experiences with having things shipped from Apple (not Apple's fault), so now I get my iPads and iPhones in the store if I don't want to wait a week. What it comes down to is whether it's worth waiting in line for a couple hours to get it almost a week earlier. Given the recent weather we've been having, I'm thinking it's worth it.

    I'm pretty sure it does - as I found when I went to BB to try to find a discounted HP touchpad, turns out they were all bought up by employees. Some employees had bought 10 of them obviously to resell on craigslist. I was quite disenfranchised that they did not limit employee purchase.

    If queueing for hours do people let you go for a pee and come back or should I expect arguments galore ?
