    This reminds me of a reply to a German request to surrender in Bastogne's during WWII. When General Anthony McAuliffe, acting commander of the 101st, was told, a frustrated McAuliffe responded, "Nuts!" He was ticked off, there was so much work to do and he didn't have time to tell him off.

    A true American reaction.

    Oh Please

    It's not as if they are intentionally sleighting the international community. Japanese products go to Japan first. European products go to Europe first. American products, likewise, go to America first. It's the nature of the business. God forbid you have to wait another month due to massive demand for the iPad. Jobs has the perfect response to this. They are managing the demand as well as they can. Would it be better to be sold out within 12 hours of international release? Or at least have enough supply to last through the first week so that people outside of the ones camping out overnight have a chance.

    No wonder it's taking longer to get Apple products out. Steve is spending way too much time answering email.:eek:

    I do understand why the iPad is delayed, but it would actually be good to know if your country even gets the ipad, I mean "internationally" only means 6 countris in Europe. When does the rest get the iPad? I mean... Just say: Fall, Winter... So I know if it's worth importing or not...

    What a jackass. Like Jobs and Apple wouldn't love to do a simultaneous worldwide release.

    Man, I still can't find Weetabix at my (American) grocery store. Maybe THAT'S why.

    I have to applaude Jobs and Apple on the launch of iPad. Its much better to launch in a limited area and have a decent supply than to launch worldwide and have a shortage for 2 years (i.e. Nintendo Wii).

    Just relax, it will be released eventually. This gives Apple more time to work the bugs out.

    Nicely played sir, nicely played.... Also, I do agree with such assessment. eBay is the way to go, a bit more expensive, but hey, it gets the job done.
