    My folks just told me that if I can find a store that is open today on Easter, they will buy my an iPad. Such a great offer, though they obviously did their research and understood many stores would be closed.

    Apple Store in Brea Mall, Ca is closed as well as all Best Buy stores.

    Please help me! A free iPad is at stake!

    ah, lol..

    but...nooo!

    Oh man oh man. Everyone is here hanging out after our Easter lunch-in and everyone is seeing me on the computer; I can hear them whispering, "Let's see how much he really wants it."

    I have to find it.

    Guess religion can be thrown out the door for us Manhattanites. The soho store was open. You should check if there are any 24/7 stores in your area. I could see those open today.

    24/7 stores?

    Hmmm, dammit. As far as I know only Best Buy and the Apple store have the iPad no?

    I saw Walmart was open but doubt they'd have the iPad.

    A 24/7 store was in reference to a 24/7 Apple Store.

    Seems like it. I just checked the Apple stores at the Santa Monica Promanade, The Grove, etc and all are closed...most likely cause they're at malls.

    Dammit!

    A free iPad!

    Walmart doesn't carry it do they?

    Did you check the Apple stores in Fashion Island Newport Beach and South Coast Plaza Costa Mesa, I'd be surprised if one of them wasn't open.

    Stores should not be closed today, it's not even a real holiday.

    Two stores I called today in the Minneapolis/St. Paul were closed today. Backup plan was the Bestbuy in Rochester where I live. It was closed too.

    I agree. Today was a silly day for them to be closed.

    I think Apple deliberately planned on a holiday weekend so there would be fewer buyers and they wouldn't run short. Sounds silly, but feasible. Don't want to look bad to the stockholders.

    Too funny.

    I think you should be required to have a multi-pastel colored easter themed case for the iPad.

    Or at least a sticker of Jesus on the Cross on the back.

    Congrats.
