no idea, but would be cool to meet you guys thereDo you know when the Store will start selling the new iPad? Will it be 8:00 like it was with the iPhone 4S? Will it be 10:00 when the store normally opens? Or will it be even later?
Nice please let me know by mail or pm.Okay... I don't know what I'll be wearing. I will tell you the day before.
And I think I'm going to call the store today or tomorrow and ask them when they'll start selling.
I'll tell you then.
please, call them. il do that to for the third time tommorow. if they get enough calls, they may see the need to do things otherwise. they could have learned from their mistake.I was there in the iPhone 4S chaos and will be there again for the iPad 3. For the people who weren't there: When I arrived for the 4S there were about 20 people in front of me, by the time I got inside the mall there were at least 200 people in front of me and a lot of the people who had been in front of me for the whole night ended up behind me, so it wasn't just me who got f*cked.
There was some sort of a line at first, formed by the people themselves, but since there were no ropes, information or any Apple personnel to guide the process the line just expanded to the sides with people who arrived hours later. The mall entrance was about 20 meters wide. In the morning it was just crammed with people across the whole front. They only opened the 2-meter wide door in the middle and from then on everyone basically got crushed. It wasn't pretty. Inside it was a 100 meter walk to the Apple store, again no control, only some security personnel telling people not to run (nobody seemed to listen).
Inside the mall, near the Apple Store, it wasn't that much better, there was a rope on the left side which would have been fine when there was a wall on the other side. But instead there was a huge recessed (half-circle) storefront which created a new funnel and allowed people to walk past the line and cut in front where the crushing started all over again.
The only thing Apple had done was a little zig-zag-rope directly in front of the store.
I really hope the Apple store gets its ***** together and puts at least some effort into organizing the line this time. They really blame the mall for what happened? They should have known better.
