    So apparently individuals are lining up at 4AM tomorrow at the Palo Alto Apple Store after individuals who arrived at 6:30AM missed out on the 10 iPads they had.

    So, if you're on the hunt for an iPad and you live in the bay area, are you going to join the "fun" in Palo Alto, or try one of the more out of the way stores (emeryville for example), or hold off for now?

    Honestly, just wait. Does someone really need an iPad 2 immediately? Order it online.

    Emeryville is only out of the way if you live on the peninsula. If you live in the city it's closer than Palo Alto, easier to get to, and better to park at. If you live in the east bay, palo alto is way out of the way. Just sayin'

    I drove by Westfield Valley Fair mall at 9 am and there were more than 100 people in line. Does anyone know how many Ipad 2's they got this morning and when people started lining up? I was able to find some Ipad 2's at a Target but they were white.

    Which Target store did you go to?
