Does apple alway make it so darn hard to get their product? I mean why didn't they allow folks to make online order two weeks early. Then they would have ample supplies to meet the demand for this product. Happy customer make repeat customers. Some say they wanted to have this demand because it looks good cheep advertising . I don't agree! Wouldn't it have been better to have peoples money sign seals and then (almost)delivered. Wouldn't having be better to have the ipad 2's in peoples hands it would advertise itself. This waiting and calling around is a PITA. Also whats with the rumors of IPAD 3 in September when some of us will still be waiting for apple to deliver the IPAD 2s.
