    Anyone else planning on queuing at the Apple Store to get the new iPad? I want to buy 2 iPad 4s and one mini. Normally the rule is your only allowed to purchase 2 iPads..Does this apply when it's a different product? I hope I can get 3 iPads.

    Wow--3 iPads! Doing a little Christmas shopping? ;) I have heard that there is a limit of purchasing iPads, but not sure if they hold to that. The number I heard is 5 was the limit, but I could be wrong. Never purchased more than one at a time for myself.

    Let us know how it goes for you! I love all that excitement!! :)

    I'm only purchasing 3 due to the fact I received full refunds on the 2 iPad 3s I owned and my daughter would like an ipad mini for Christmas. She has sold her itouch and kindle so Im not spending anymore than £50. If its 5 that's great! Will let you know how I get on xxx

    I'm in London. There hasn't been anyone queuing this time which is strange. They normally queue 5 days before

    OK.....I must be stupid. OK, Don't answer that!
    But I have no idea what "Queuing" means? :eek:

    I looked it up:
    **********************
    Queue(ky[​IMG]) n.
    1. A line of waiting people or vehicles.
    2. A long braid of hair worn hanging down the back of the neck; a pigtail.
    3. Computer Science a. A sequence of stored data or programs awaiting processing.
    b. A data structure from which the first item that can be retrieved is the one stored earliest.
    ************************
    Since I sort of doubt it's #2, I'll assume you mean definition #1. :p
    There might be lines for the iPad mini but I doubt for the iPad 4.......not a big enough change.

    I need to seriously get smarter, or something. :confused:

    Maybe I should have posted "wait in line". I had no idea the word "queue" is not used in America. This has made my family chuckle :)

    No, it's actually the provision of a lot of spy and weapons gadgets by Q to James Bond. M to JB "So that's your mission, so get yourself down to the basement, see Q, and get some Queing done"

    I understood what you meant by queues. We use that term quite a bit in our health organization. :) ...and I am American! :)

    Some of us americans have been exposed to folks from other parts of the world, believe it or not. I learned this use of the word "queue" many years ago, though I would not use it to refer to people waiting in a line.(I am american, after all)...but I say stuff like "queue up" or "queless". :)

    Actually the meaning was quite clear. Even though I've only been to the UK once.

    I'm from Canada and I've queued for movies when I was younger. I hope you get the number of iPads you are hoping for.

    Lol.

    Yes, many Americans probably know the term and its use, but we don't usually use it as a verb, because we tend to say "line up." Mostly, I hear it used as a noun in America, like when someone says something is in a queue (sometimes as an online term, too).

    You also tend to hear it used more often as a verb among East Coasters, or others who are well traveled or well read, exposed to culture beyond that of the U.S. (many of us, fortunately, lol).

    I'm from the Netherlands and always thought that the word queue was used everywhere! Well, you learn every day I guess ;)
