I smell an iPad shortage


It's late, it's late. And now it's nowhere to be found...

My quest for a new iPad hit a brick wall last weekend. I've been too cheap to buy one of the overpriced iPads here in Manila or nearby in Hong Kong, so I've been relying on the kindness of friends in New York to get me an iPad. Thanks to my wife's friend, we purchased an iPad from the US Apple Store only to find that the order was mysteriously cancelled. We're still trying to get to the bottom of this. Our friends meanwhile visited three Apple Stores in NYC and surprise surprise there were no iPads to be found. They were all sold out. Could this mean that there is now an iPad shortage? Looks like Apple was right to delay the worldwide launch of the iPad. Meanwhile, there's no shortage of overpriced iPads here in Manila. My brother just bought a 32GB model for P39,800. It's starting to look good…
