iPad 2 Is A Hit!

Apple knows when it has a good thing. And its iPad is definitely one of those items.

Just after its weekend debut, Apple has managed to sell an estimated 1 million units of its iPad 2!

The 1 million mark is huge considering the original iPad sold 1 million units 28 days after it launched.

Apple also saw a rise in shares by .6% despite Nasdaq being down .7%. One analyst reveals:

"Our field checks over the weekend indicate that the iPad 2 sold out at every Apple and non-Apple store we contacted. In fact, all the stores had worked through iPad 2 inventory by Saturday afternoon, and there were no new iPad 2 deliveries on Sunday."

Some Best Buy stores even ran out of the iPad 2 and its accessories within 10 minutes of going on sale.

The iPad is currently on sale, if in stock (hah!) for $499, the same price as the first generation models.

Did U pick one up?

    AHH!!! NO!!! I'm so goddamn sick of these gadgets, I'm so motherfucking sick of having to feel like everything I spent THOUSANDS of dollars on is already ANTIQUATED within a matter of a couple years. This is absolute bullshit. How the fuck am I supposed to live? With everyone else owning smart phones, with everyone else not stooping below air for a laptop, with everyone NEEDING EVERY LAST MOTHERFUCKING GODDAMN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT LIKE IT WAS A VITAL ORGAN!!!!!! I'm going to be so fuggin broke. Fuck this.

    Am old enough to remember at the age of 10 buying my first …… calculator!
    Thought it was incredible - a microchip doing all the calculations. The internet was not even on the horizon. Can't help thinking something has been lost with our total immersion in the cyberworld. CYA, LOL, LMAO … give me a break. A baby makes more sense.

    *When I got the 30GB iPod video way back when and was able to download 5582 songs to fill up it's memory, I was ecstatic… until my dad got a MS Zune with the 30 GB storage, has around the same number of songs plus 10 full length movies with several GB worth of memory to spare. Ever since then, I have come to the conclusion that Apple products are a complete rip-off. Why download in MP4 format when MP3 takes smaller space?
    *I still see they have yet to put a micro SD or even a regular SD port in their product. So if you buy one with 16GB internal storage, fill it all the way up, and try to upgrade to a higher storage like 32 or 64 GB, you're screwed because you have to buy another iPad. No thank you, I will stick to Android.

    Actually got mine at my local Walmart. Got there @ 3:45PM for on sale of 5PM and there was just one other person ahead of me; a 70+ year old man that could not wait to get his. They had 16 units. I got the white 16GB model as did the old man. Everyone else in line had to get the black one. There actually were only 15 people waiting on line. So cool that everywhere else, the lines were tremendous. By 5:02 PM I was walking out of Walmart, iPad2 in hand! LOVE WALLY-WORLD!!!
