  1. They are offering a free stylus and keyboard with every purchase. Surely sales could not be so high without these items, Bill Gate stated so!

    What a bunch of dinosaurs that once ruled the time of Microsoft.

  2. Managing the scarcity makes no sense. Having someone wait 14 days for a product doesn’t make someone want it more. Why wouldn’t you prefer to take their cash right then and hand them the iPad and have a guaranteed sale? Clearly demand is high. Apple doesn’t need to create some artificial shortage. It’s more important to get that iPad in the consumer’s hand, take their dough, and then start getting their cut from app sales.

  3. I ordered a 16gb 3G (my second iPad) on May 9th. It said that it shipped in 5-7 days. Got an email on the 16th that it shipped. FedEx has it arriving on the 20th. Can’t wait.

    They will probably have sold 2 million by the end of May.
