    I was truly very excited to get an IPad2, but however Apple's inability to keep the market saturated enough to get them into consumers hands, has my excitement waning. Has the production fallen off or something, I can't find one anywhere and haven't been able too for sometime!!

    How come you don't just order from apple? On their website is say 1-2 weeks ship. So you check every walmart, target, best buy, toy r us, and radio shack?

    If you want a sure way to get ne, order it directly from Apple. I think I have seen people saying you can get one now in about 2-3 weeks.

    Unless the recent developments at the manufacturing plant will have an impact.

    If you want to solely rely on your local retalers, you might wan to download the iPad finder app (if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch etc.) and keep on searching. The app is actually the one that helped me in the right direction a few weeks ago when I decided I wanted one right then and there.

    I guess I was the luckiest sob on Monday when I called my local Apple store and they had them in stock.

    I live in Boston and every brick and mortar store was out of them within a 50 mile radius. None of them had any time frame on when they were getting another shipment in. Best Buy told me they hadn't had them in stock in weeks. I lucked out and called an Apple store that had just got a shipment in that day. Even then by the time I got to the store no more than 3 hours later I got the last one they had in stock.

    You had to wait to get your drivers license, first kiss, first ******, etc etc.

    You can either wait in a huff and all bent out of shape, or you can order from Apple on line, or use your free time hunting the local stores. It is all about the attitude with which you proceed. Either look forward with anticipation or you look forward with tension, anger and frustration. Or you bury your head in the sand and moan about how you have to wait and wait and wait.

    Your life, your choice.

    I was told by a friend of mine that a factory in Japan that manufactures a part/parts for the iPad 2 was partly destroyed during the earthquake. I don't rightly know how true this is, but that's what I was told.

    Check Wal Mart, I've been to a few different ones over the last few days and each one of them had at least 5 for sale.
