    Hey folks,

    I've been a long time Apple user and fan. Today I purchased my iPad and I'm now desperately waiting for the delivery of my new toy.

    I'm 46 years old, have two kids and work in an IT system house.

    Besides my iPad, I own a MacBook Pro 15", an iPhone 3GS, a modded AppleTV and a few iPods of various generations.

    I hope I will find a few new fans and friends here.

    Welcome Joerg,

    I visited your beautiful city many years ago when i was stationed in Berlin from 1986 to 1990.

    Hope you get your iPad soon, it is a wonderful device.

    Damn, the eBay-seller cancelled the purchase :mad:
    He claims, that the box wasn't sealed anymore, bla, bla, bla....

    Is, by chance, anybody flying to Germany soon and would be willing to bring me either a 32GB- or better a 64GB-iPad with him?
    :rolleyes:

    Finally I bought a 32GB Wifi over eBay US and its on it's way already. Now it depends on USPS and German customs, how fast I will have it in my hands.
    :D

    I'll keep you posted.

    Got confirmation, that my iPad is already in the local customs office. So it's most likely, that I finally can pick it up on Monday.

    Going to seem like a long weekend, but Monday will be here soon enough :)

    If you like it half as much as I like mine, it will be worth the wait...... It will be two weeks Monday since I got mine.... And a keyboard and mouse seem so 'old school' to me now..... :)

    yeah, and the only way, how to shorten the time is reading in this forum and spending $ on the iTunes-App-Store.:eek:
