The iPad 2 line was forming down at the Santa Monica Apple store at 10am on Friday morning. I didn’t care. In fact I took the photo above and felt sorry for all those people who had to wait til 5pm when the iPad would be released.
Earlier I had been lulled into a false sense of security by the guy at Culver City ‘s Best Buy. The result? I am the only person in Los Angeles without an iPad 2. At least that is what it feels like.
The guy (we’ll just call him ‘the guy’) told me they had 100s of iPads and not to worry about lining up. He said no one knows Best Buy sells them. Come back tomorrow and we’ll have one. So I did just that and not only were they sold out, they wont have any more for at least 3 weeks. In a panic I called around and found out the Apple store at Santa Monica might have them in on Tuesday. So I’ll head out tomorrow and stand in line like everyone else. Or I could just wait for the hype to die down!
(In case you were wondering we went out to dinner for our anniversary and it was lovely.)
