    MSNBC says another earthquake hit off of Japan again! 7.4 magnitude which caused another tsunami alert for the northeastern coast. I believe they should STOP ALL PRODUCTIONS until further notice!


    *EDIT*

    Sorry my good folks. What I said was written wrong so I changed it. Never meant any harm.

    I hope not but they're so fragile over there at this point. This is crazy! What are they suppose to do over there?

    The people there are suffering and you are thinking about the iPad 2?

    Japan is dealing with crisis after crisis and yours is a possible iPad2 delay? You need some real problems... I mean other than that baboon-arse hideous, insensitive, priority-distorted attitude.

    But I'm sure these iPads are top priority! :rolleyes:

    Seriously? Thousands upon thousands dead, radiation leaking into the Pacific, millions displaced from their homes and jobs and you are worried about getting your iPad2? Maybe you should fly to Japan so you can buy one there directly and take in the sights while you are at it...just so you can see how stupid you sound worrying about getting your gadget on time.

    I call people like this JA's! Jack A@$es!

    I specifically said that they are fragile and can't take this anymore. Keep it in context-We are in MacForums and of course this would be something to look at with iPad2 sales and production.

    This BY NO MEANS is taking away of the severity of what's going on in their society. Chill out!

    If anyone is interested there is a great app for earthquakes called QuakeWatch.

    Well, to be fair, Japan eats 7.4 earthquakes for breakfast. It's really only the proximity of this quake to the last one that's unfortunate. Hopefully Fukushima holds.

    Even if the events there do cause delivery issues, this is something that Apple has to face. Of course people want to get their gadget as soon as possible, but creating a thread to say that a new earthquake has hit Japan and on the same time talk about the iPad is not right. Don't you get it?

    Look let me say this.. Their has been many talks with the earthquake in contrast with the iPad. Maybe I gave the intro wrong. I will Never want to take away from what is going on over there. It's incomprehensible! So I'm sorry if I offended anyone as I feel the exact same way as you.

    I think the problem is that you actually did minimize what is happening there with what you wrote. My advice is to go fix it. ;)

    The earthquake JUST happened, and the tsunami hasn't even reached Japan yet. It's a little inappropriate to leap past all that directly to "is this going to hurt iPad production?" How about "I hope everyone can get to higher ground."?

    Oh no I was just reitterating that a warning was given. Did I miss that part? Sorry if I did. I believe they should evacuate everyone within 15 mi or less to another part of the country until which time some sort of predictability can be made. They've had 2 in less than 24 hrs.

    In the OP's defense if I didn't already have my iPad2 I'd be wondering how this might affect availability. I doubt that I'd voice this concern on a public forum, but it would certainly have crossed my mind. I'd be more impressed if those who responded to this thread proposed doing something constructive to help the situation rather than dog piling on the OP for being insensitive. Beating up on the OP is not going to help the people of Japan, if you want to help, help, otherwise your no more sympathetic to the situation than the OP.
