ipad 2 is it a farce?

I went into the apple store today to find out about the ipad 2. apparently the only way to get one is to get one is to line up outside the shop at 5pm. they are then sold on a first come first serve basis. I was told that they won't run out of stock on friday as they are selling between 5pm and 8pm, and with only two tills and slow card machines they wouldn't be able to sell all by 8pm.
Am I the only one that thinks this is crazy?

Yes. But the crazies will still line up with Apple signs in their eyes, frothing at the mouth, tanked up on red bull and chattering away at 100mph about dual core/Facetime/dual cameras and laughing manically...

They want the newspapers to take a picture of the long lines and the local news to turn up with a camera crew. Apparently it was similar for the US launch. You had to queue at 6am at the main Apple store in any given city but the small stores in strip malls on the edge of town still had stock at the end of the day.

I say the people who need any product like this on day 1 needs to reflect a little more on the wider world and get a life rather than being a lemming.

You have to admit Apple must Giggle their T**s off everytime they launch an iProduct lol. Never understood it meself.

Agreed, sad people that can't wait a few weeks for products that they can do without.

Suppose they don't have much else going on in their lives.

Totally over priced, restrictive OS, inbuilt-obsolescence, I will be keeping my money in my pocket and if I do purchase a tablet it will be Android.

no.... I'm pretty sure it is real

Be funnier if absolutely no one bothered

If people want to queue up to get an iPad, what business is it of anyone else's?

Not surprised to see the usual suspects on a shopping website saying other people need lives.
