    How's the availability holding in the retail stores?

    I see 16gig wifi 3rd gens listed on Craigslist for $700. I hope all of these clowns end up taking a bath and having sell them for less than retail.

    Pretty sure they'd probably just return them rather than sell them for less than they paid. It is good to see adequate supply at an iOS device launch for once though! :) ******* the scalpers!

    They have a new CEO in town that actually makes enough supply. Bitches get what they deserve. It comes back to haunt!

    Today I was at the Apple Store at Carrousel du Louvre here in Paris and the queue forming outside to get a new iPad wasn't that big. I'd dare to say the maximum waiting time to get your hands on a new iPad wasn't even 45 minutes. Inside the store everything was very calm and I even asked one of the people working there if they had any iPad lefts and he told me they had enough so my guess is, at least here in Paris, there won't be any iPad 3 shortage, or at least not for now so I don't see how any scalper could make any money out of this.

    Here in downtown Ottawa, stocks were good even an hour ago. Even our local Staples had 20 in stock at opening. Kudos Apples for the stock gestion...

    Howerver, in China, this wil be a scalper's paradise :rolleyes:
