    Hey Guys!

    I was surprised Ottawa wasn't up here already. Anyone planning on standing in the long lines this Friday? Where are you going? What time?

    I think the Rideau Apple Store will be where most of the stock in the city is and where I'll go if I choose to do the line thing.

    I honestly have no idea. I don't know what to expect at all. I was thinking I might go around 7-8 AM, but maybe 10ish will be fine?

    i think you guys are overestimating how bad the lines will be. For the iPhone 4 launch, i got there at about 5 with the store opening at 8. I was within the first 200 or so as well. I highly doubt the iPad line will be as long as that of the iPhone, but I guess we'll see.

    Looking for iPad lovers

    Hi Ottawa iPad people -- I'm a journalism student at Carleton and I want to know what you think of the new iPad. I'm going to be down at the Rideau Centre tomorrow morning with some film equipment and a couple classmates, so look out for us! If you want to give me a shout/text ahead of time, my number is 613-816-8573. Some of our video work ends up on http://centretownnewsonline.ca/ so check it out if you have the chance. Have fun with your new device.

    So how did everybody make out yesterday?

    Any tips on finding an iPad 2 in Ottawa at this point? Should I wait a while before even bothering to look for one in stores?

    I managed to get a white 64 GB WiFi model at the Ottawa Apple store yesterday at around 0930, just after they opened. Only waited about 20 minutes and they seemed to have lots of stock.

    Got one! The Best Buy in Gatineau was showing online stock this afternoon. Called to confirm, found out they only had the 1 unit and then drove over ASAP. The exact model I wanted too... 64GB Black Wi-Fi only.

    It was a return item so there's hope for more! Good luck!
