    Who is planning on heading down to their local Apple store tomorrow morning (Tuesday)? For those that have been going the past few days, have you noticed lines decreasing, staying the same, or increasing?

    i went for the first time today. the line was roughly 30 people, 75% scalpers. Apple employee was nice but said they unfortunately did not have a shipment come in so no ipads to sell.
    He told us we would have better luck trying tomorrow (tues 3/22). I spoke with some of the people in line, some said hel no! they were not coming out again, others said "yes, i'll be there, and i'll be there before you!" so i'm leaving tonight around 1:30. bringing a backpack with:
    • change of clothes
    • food
    • cards
    • my mbp
    • chargers
    • ipod
    • and lots of water bottles to hand out to the people in front of me. (get em goin to the bathroom and losing their spot :)
    oh and a beach chair

    Has anyone been able to confirm that their local store will actually be opening again at 9AM tomorrow? I forgot to call mine tonight to see if they are going to be opening early, but if everyone else's stores are I think there's a pretty good chance they will follow suit.

    For what it's worth, Andy Ihnatko just tweeted that he heard that a lot of Apple Stores received a large shipment today, and that tomorrow would be a good day to try and grab one. No guarantees, but Andy is knowledgeable and well-connected, so it's worth a shot.

    For ***** and giggles, I tried my luck to see if an Apple Store would tell me if they did in fact receive an iPad shipment today for sale tomorrow. I asked "Was there a shipment of iPads today that would be put on sale tomorrow?" The response I got was "We don't know when we get shipments in." I replied "So you don't know if one came in today?" "We don't know when we get shipments in."

    I let him know that he was deliberately avoiding my question.

    Thanks bro, if there's wifi I'll probably be updating on the spot. Or I'll just use my blackberry. I don't mind waiting as long is it is interesting or will make a good story

    Exactly. I'm doing the same for the fourth and final time. If I don't get one tomorrow, after two close calls that I missed where one of them was when I left at 9:40 and they received shipments at 9:45 while I was 9th in line,... I think I'll commit suicide, Durka Durka style in the Apple Store and stain their perfect furnishings.:D the suicide part was sarcasm guys

    I'm debating if I should get one now or wait until the bleeding issue is fixed. What are you peeps doing about this...? Wait or jump it and exchange it later..?

    I think I will be going out today for Hibachi. Hopefully the lines aren't too long (I'm hungry).

    I will report back in as soon as I have accomplished this mission. It should be around Noon eastern time. :cool:

    Went to the apple store in Lehigh valley this am. Was probably about 36th in line. They came out and started the ticket process. Today was the first day they had AT&T and WiFi (no Verizon). They ran out of AT&T about 2 in front of me which is frustrating because I want a 64gb one, but the wifi models cleared the rest of the line about another 20 deep and people were still walking up as I drove away and having success. Still frustrating that I was about 10 minutes too late to get what I wanted, I guess I will try again tomorrow. The line should in theory be shorter as I recognized the "AT&T" crowd from days prior and they got what they had been desperately seeking.

    In line at the Sherman Oaks mall about 6 peeps deep. Lo and behold! It's the same Asian group in front. Why am I not surprised?
