    Hear me out.

    We know iPad 2s are being manufactured in China. But since the recent earthquake tsunami disaster in Japan, the supply is severely strained. So, in order to "meet the demand", they send iPad 2s to the store, but are allowing the use of Asian "middlemen", because they know the iPad 2 is headed right back to China, where it will be shipped right back to the warehouse to be distributed. Sure, there are some going to Dubai and other wealthy countries, but the majority are replenishing the moribund supply line. The $100 or so Asians are paid to stand in line is nothing to a billion dollar company. Also, there's nothing wrong with the free press.

    I have an iPad 2 so no I'm not a bitter consumer who is tired of the Asian invasion.

    By mentioning they are Asian you have defeated any chance of a conversation on these forums.

    Also, your theory is a bit wacky. :D

    Apple is involved in a multitude of cahoots and conspiracies around the world. It is part of Steve's plan to rule the world.

    The great thing is ALL conspiracies work so well (like Watergate) because as we know people NEVER brag or confide to anyone.

    so let me get this straight, you're saying that apple is selling their product but rather than have it go to a consumer, they are using middle men to buy the product back and then resell it again to resupply their own stock? how exactly are they meeting any demand? still the same number of devices.

    your premise makes no sense at all

    Yes, it's a massive singing/dancing/iPad conspiracy ..... all engineered to block you from starring on Glee.

    I'm an Asian, and I don't see any iPad 2 here.

    Your theory is just as golden. :D

    I like how your idea is that Apple is spending money on middlemen to buy back their own product and resell it in a giant loop that goes nowhere, rather than actually selling their product without any extra loop around or extra costs.

    This is how I see your logic:

    1. Offer iPads to general public
    2. Instead of letting general public buy iPads, pay people to buy them all up.
    3. .???
    4. Profit!

    So, having heard you out....

    You seem to be saying that Apple sells ipads, to asian middlemen, who return them to china, to sell them again.

    Aside from the obvious question of how this makes money, why?

    Well done sir, well done. You've cracked it.

    Ah, but you've missed the very important role played by the hookers and midgets. Without the midgets, Steve's ingenious plan would fall apart.

    From what I was able to find on appleleaks, they are using unicorns (i don't know if they are
    Asian or not though) to transport iPad back and forth between US and China .. But shhht, don't tell anyone.

    Not subs, UFOs. Well, actually subs that look like UFOs. UFOs powered by unicorn tears, rainbows, and hope.
