    Hey gang. Are we planning anything? I've been hearing various claims, such as: "They aren't releasing it until 5 pm"

    I just spoke to a rep and he told me to check the Apple Store website the day before.

    Hopefully, it will be available when the doors open, which means lining up at 6 am.

    Who's in?

    The Easton Rent-A-Cops are really bitchy, and they generally don't let you start lining up till 6. On iPhone launches, we'll go hang with the people outside the AT&T store and then send recon over to check it out. As soon as they let the line start forming, we swoop in.

    According the the Apple site, the iPad will be on sale in their retail store at 5 PM. I guess I'll just order mine from the online store. I really don't want to sit in line for 12 hours.

    I plan on getting in line about 1:30 or 2:00. They are going to be sold at multiple locations so hopefully this take the pressure off of the Easton Store.

    Be careful. You might get shot :)...remember the shooting at Easton a few weeks ago all started in the Apple Store. Tensions will be high with this new product release :)

    I propose using the hashtag #cbusipad on Twitter to keep others updated on lines, inventories, pictures, etc.! Thoughts?
