    If people don't pay attention to the bit I bolded up there, it's their own darned fault. Being up-front with people about availability is not "reckless". "Reckless" would be saying, "Hey, everyone that walks in the door will walk out a happy iPad owner!!" when you can't guarantee that.

    Yea but the notice should read "while supply lasts" - because they're not going to have a heck of a lot to hand out when the dust settles.

    I don't get the distinction you're trying to make. Since they're selling 3 different product lines in numerous locations, the plural "supplies" is correct. That's not being reckless, it's being truthful--"We can't guarantee how many there will be, but we'll sell 'em until we run out." Sadly, nobody's figured out a way to legislate the buying public's command of the English language. Nor a way to force them to actually read beyond, "Shiny! Sold now! Want!" ;)
