Apple's New iPad Preorders Officially Sold Out
Following the announcement of the new iPad last week at Apple’s special event, the crowd went wild for the new game-changing tablet, which sports 4G LTE technology, a retina display, a better processing chip, and a better camera. Within hours of the announcement, Apple permitted pre-orders for the new iPad on their Web site. In the past few days, we have watched as shipping dates for some pre-orders have gradually slipped. Citing an Apple spokeswoman, demand has been, "off the charts":

Apple undoubtedly took necessary precautions to help prepare for extraordinary demand and in turn, at the event, they told us they would be making the new iPad available internationally very quickly. Doing this, Apple took a hit on supply in the larger countries, like the United States, because now they have less to ship as they distribute them to smaller countries, which didn’t have so much luck getting the iPad 2 on a timely fashion.
With many people still discovering the entertainment and usefulness value of Apple’s iPad, it’s no doubt that the tablet will see increasingly high demand and large sales throughout the year. The iPad 2 helped illustrate how a tablet computer can prove useful in many different work environments from education, to airplane cockpits, to hospitals and much more.

Flash is truly dead at least on mobile. In fact, its buggy even on android devices!
Adobe confirms Flash Player is dead for mobile devices

We heard the talk and now here's the confirmation: Flash Player for mobile devices is officially dead. Adobe is reaffirming its commitment to "aggressively contribute" to HTML5, a platform with broader support and capabilities than Flash was ever able to deliver. Adobe will of course also be pushing developers to work in its AIR platform for a more native experience, and the company will continue to work on Flash Player for desktop operating systems, but one can't help but see the platform as a whole standing on fairly shaky footing at this point.

They must have a lot this time. I accidentally ended up with an extra one on order and it was impossible to cancel and not cancel the whole order. I guess I'll be heading to the Apple store this week for a different reason.

That almost happened to me too lol. The server was totally flooded when I placed my order. They had me purchasing 6 units at check out. Fortunately I caught the error.
