    i went to the roosevelt field store at 6am.. already a line of 50 with at least 40 of them are asian scalpers. Went to manhasset at 7, line of 30 with over 25 of them scalpers... they started camping out in roosevelt since 12am. i think waiting to purchase at an apple store is a waste of time for the next week.

    So the scalpers found a loophole or something? You can buy 2 per day, is that it?

    Apple better change their policy to 2 per week or month,etc.

    But it's too late now for this rollout perhaps, as it may be already ruined for the average buyer.

    Update.

    Apple lady said they received no iPads today. Go home they won't be selling any today.

    Personally I find this insane, how do you not ship iPads for Monday morning? Any chance she's lying or a shipment will come in later?

    Also she hada pretty crap attitude. Wouldn't give any actual answers, all corporate speak about not knowing anything.

    The 20 or so people were all in crappy moods. All pissed at situation. I'd also say that half were scalpers. I tried asking them when they showed up and they looked at me like I was from Mars.

    Which national/international shipping company delivers on Sundays?

    According to other threads, the pattern is that deliveries made during a given day are sold the following morning.

    This was my experience last week starting on Wednesday in LI. Manhasset is now overrun by scalpers.

    Manhasset did not have any this morning, and roosevelt said they didn't. Not 100% sure about roosevelt cuz the girl coulda said they were sold out or they didnt receive any, i didnt want to ask her again because she sounded really frustrated.

    She said they got a shipment and no IPads today.

    Also I didnt have breakfast, just some water. No bowel movement yet, but since you care I'll update the thread accordingly.

    I imagine after a week of this craziness, many Apple employees are becoming s bit short-tempered. Who could blame them?

    Wear a ski mask and a normal sized jock strap and you should be fine.

    Rugs are Oriental. People are Asian.

    No. That's a bad idea. Those people are desperate. Handing out ex-lax would only be a further punishment upon yourself.

    you should have kicked her ass since it's her fault for not ordering any iPad 2's for monday morning. and i would also stake out the store and kick the FedEx driver's ass for not being around to deliver any on a Sunday

    Wow, whole lotta' trolls .

    Update: used the Target tracker, went to Target in Bayshore and easy as pie I got one. They only had wifi versions. Fine by me. Guy was in a bad mood, but I think that because of a fellow co worker. Anyway jad to ask for one they were in the back. So if you're on LI use the Target tracker. Good luck!
