For some reason i live in new hampshire and i got to the Apple store at the Rockingham mall at 12. There was already 100+ people in line i sat in line for 6 hours and saw what must have been the most people ever in that mall at once. A line of over 600 people formed by the time i got to the front of the line. My apple store got 950 ipads and were completely sold out by 8 oclock, and not every one in line got oneRIP Steve Jobs..

I went to the Apple Store inside Florida Mall at about 12pm and there were about 45-50 employees and over 350 people waiting in line outside. Then I went to Altamonte Mall at about 7:30pm and there were still over 200 people in line. This morning I called my local Target, and obviously...they were out of iPads. So, I guess I'll have to wait for the next batch. Congratulations to everyone who is playing with their shiny new iPad2 :-)! I'll stick with my iPad1 for a while longer.27" iMac: Quad-Core 2.93GHz i7 & 16GB RAM

Why don't we just let the guy deal with it on his own, it's his choice what he wants to do with the cover. I know the role of Jiminy Cricket is an appealing one, but he's a big boy.
Hope everyone that got an iPad 2 is enjoying it

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

I was lucky yesterday I drove by best buy at 4:45 and there was prolly 100 people in line. So I went into target and there were about 25 people in line there I asked the employee if it was worth waiting and he was a complete ***hole about it. He was like "you gonna have to wait in line and find out". I wasn't gonna wait if they didn't have enough so I left. Walmart was right next store so I went in there at 5:05 and there was only 3 people in line and I walked out at 5:15 with a black 16 gig. The employee at walmart said they had 4 of each color and size.
I love the iPad 2. I didn't have the 1st one to compare it to but I've had the iPhone since the 1st genIf I Helped You Hit The Thanks Button

Did Apple finally decide to stop development of the white iPhone 4? It just seems a little odd that they couldn't "match the color of the phone to the home button." And yet, Brand new iPad 2 launches in both black and white? Shouldn't that mean that they now have the colors right and can now make iPhone 4 in white?

Why is everyone telling the dude who "stole" the item if he can't add? It's not his responsibility to add up the cost of the merchandise, if anything you ppl should be saying why can't the apple employee add?
The only responsibility he has is to go back and say he didn't get charged for it, correct. But it's not his duty to add up the cost of an iPad and a cover. That's the employees fault.
Besides, I would keep the cover only because apple tends to screw ppl and you know it

Come on. Make some sense. He didnt steal anything. Not like he snatched the cover and put it in his bag. It was the cashier's fault for not swiping it properly or notice that. Basically he or she didnt do a good job in it.
Ignore the ignorant or stubborn people. They are just like me who is jealous that you got a free 40 dollars case and we paid the full price for it.
Good job man. I wish I was lucky like you.

I was in line for 7 hours for the iPhone 4. My 3GS was nearly crippled by iOS 4.0, so I had to either deal with that for a month, or deal with the line...
Gotta say, the line was worth it! The atmosphere was almost as good as being at a Packers/Bears game in Lambeau. I got to the West Towne Mall location, in Madison, WI, at about 5am. Got my iPhone 4 at noon, and loved every minute of it.
I honestly thought I would be bored crapless, and that I might not even get the phone, so I brought my iPad, which saw almost no use. It's strange, really, it felt like a temporary community. Everyone was pretty cool (except the one *rear* who sold his spot for $500) and that helped the time go much faster. We took turns guarding spots, so people could go to the restroom, smoke, get coffee, etc..
All in all, a great way to spend a day, if you can. I will definitely be there for the launch of the next iPhone.
To the guy who got the free cover: I would have called and paid with my credit card. I'd hate for someone to lose their job over something like that, especially considering the chaos and stress they had to endure on a launch event like that. Not judging, just sayin'.It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
It's where you are.
Reflect on the past, plan for the future, mod for today.

That's ridiculous that some people couldn't sit down the entire time they were in line. It proves how great the Apple people and security were at Washington Square in Tigard, Oregon. If we wanted to leave to use the restroom, get something to eat, or whatever, we could for up to a half hour and have our place in line kept.

i would have had my own story if i didnt want a new macbook pro so badYou don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

I have my story to share. I was lining up also in apple soho at 1:30 with my two best friends. I didn't get my iPad 2 till 7pm. I was happy that got my white iPad 32gb 3g and also a bad cold. Now I am sick on bed with pictures to share. :[
