I'm a sucker. I sold my iPad 1 to a mate in anticipation of visiting the US for a few days next week - was looking forward to swanning into an Apple store and picking up my new iPad. After all the craziness of the last two days, it looks to me like I would either have to spend a whole night queuing or come home empty-handed. In the end, I just bought an iPad 2 from eBay and asked for it to be shipped to my hotel. The premium on the iPad will have cost me exactly the same as the iPad will cost here in the UK when it eventually comes out on 25th (and I won't have to wait for shipping/queuing). I'm not being foolish, right? My impatience is embarrassing, I accept that.
