My girlfriend flew to Honolulu today (we live on the big island) for a conference tomorrow and friday and it didn't take her long to get to the ala moana shopping center, the location of the only apple store.... so far from any continental land mass.... and she spoke with an employee that said..... yes, the ripple effect is supported.... yes, we have ripple effect.... I repeat yes we have ripple effect.... Buy them iBooks! Get them while they're still hot and have that crisp fresh electrical hardware smell.... ummmmm. TASTY!!!!
