If you didn’t manage to grab an iPad 2 last Friday or successfully get an online order placed in the wee hours of it first being made available, it’s looking increasingly like you’ll have a long wait ahead of you.
Despite Apple’s invasion of retail stores across the world, not everyone lives a comfortable driving distance from one of their holy shrines -- which is why it’s good to hear that the iPad 2 will also be available from Best Buy and Walmart when it launches at 5pm on Friday, March 11.
If you want an iPad, there's a few ways to go about getting one: You can opt drive to the Apple Retail Store nearest you; less sociable tablet fanatics can navigate to Apple's online retail portal and have one shipped to their front door, and for those lacking scruples or a sense of common decency, you can even wait for some one else to buy one before jumping them for it (no, we're not condoning that sort of behavior). If none of these methods for iPad procurement work for you, don't fret: you'll soon have a fourth option to pick from, as Target has announced that they'll be offering up Apple's netbook-eating darling starting October 3.
One of the blog's readers sent AppleInsider a tip/complaint that both the 21.5-inch and quad-core 27-inch iMac weren't available for reserve or pick up in Apple's Buffalo, NY location. Elsewhere in the Empire state, shoppers lurking the stark lanes of Apple's 5th Avenue New York City store found that the 27-inch quad core was in short supply there, as well.
Put your ear to the ground--do you hear the rumbling? No, it's not the cattle getting restless. It's the sound of thousands of eager international iPhone 4 fans stampeding forth to secure their place in line this Friday and snag the elusive Apple handset of their dreams.
Apple just can’t seem to catch a break on the iPhone 4 (except when it comes to profit, that is) -- the company announced today that manufacturing problems are delaying the white model of the handset yet again.
Apple Fanboys of the world: PAY HEED! It's time to get das zelt out of storage, pack up a plen stol to sit in and bring a coverture électrique just in case those nights of saving yourself a space in line outside your local Apple Store gets too cold. That's right, the Apple faithful have heard the clarion call--iPhone 4 will become available to consumers in more international locales on July 30th.
There’s been plenty of rumors in recent weeks about iPad shortages -- which seem to have been false -- but now it appears that it may be the accessories for your new toy that you’ll have to start worrying about.
