Maybe somebody can shed some light on this, and it is not iPad specific, but in this case it does involve the release of the iPad 3G. When I was in line picking up my WiFi iPad, business customers were allowed to move to the front because they had reservations, that is all fine and dandy. But, educational institutions who pre-order the iPad 3G (and also this happened on the WiFi iPad) are not having them shipped until AFTER the release date (we have confirmed this on the 3G model as well). I don't get it. Why does Apple give preferential treatment to business customers, but make educational institutions wait for shipments? Granted, it will more than likely only be a few a days late, but this pushes it back to where a couple of us going on vacations won't have them for the vacation. Anybody have an ideas why this is the case?
