It was almost to be expected, right? The original iPad launch saw inventory run out rather quickly, and online order shipping times didn't exactly come down until last summer as Apple upped the pace to replenish supplies. It appears that the iPad 2's launch this weekend is going the way of its predecessor, as the only model left at Apple's Fifth Ave store today was the $829 Verizon 3G model.
Apple has a track record of making excellent guided tour videos that show not just the features of their new products, but also the experience of using them; they make you want to buy the thing even if you already own it, and they've just added tours for Garage Band and iMovie.
One of the biggest downsides to owning a lot of electronic devices are the cables. Cables can be a pain to manage and keep tangle-free.

So, if you don't want to end up like that one episode of The Three Stooges, then click through and find out how to de-clutter your cables.

In this how-to, we’ll show you how it’s done so you can spend your hard-earned money on things other than ringtones.
If you purchased an iPad recently, Wednesday's announcement of the iPad 2 might have left you with some bitterness, jealousy, and buyer's remorse. Well, remorse no more, because Apple's confirmed that customers who purchased the iPad 1 after February 16th are entitled to a $100 refund.
After months of speculation, wild predictions and unicorn tears, the iPad 2 was finally revealed today. Of all the predictions surrounding Apple's latest creation, what did the internet get right? What did they get wrong? Here's our rundown of what came true with iPad 2 at today's Apple Event and what failed to materialize.
Among things like the iMovie for iPad and a little thing called the iPad 2, Apple today announced the upcoming availability of GarageBand for iPad, and the little musical powerhouse has never looked sweeter. If you’ve ever used one of the piano iPad apps, you’ll understand immediately why this is something to get excited about. And it won’t just let you play piano, either; you can strum a guitar, play the bass, or bang on the drums. Since it won’t hit the app store until March 11, we don’t yet have a hands-on review of it, but what we do have an idea of what it is, and why it will be awesome.
