iPad 2 Selling For Hundreds More Than Retail On eBay

Filed under: Tech Talk

iPad 2 rip off on ebay

Why do we ALWAYS forget to stock up on the newest technology only to reap the benefits when it goes out of stock in stores!

The sold-out iPad 2 is unavailable in most major cities and has created such a high demand that people are buying them for 40% more than the retail price on eBay!

The highly coveted predecessor to the original iPad, which accounted for 90% of of the 18 million tablet devices sold last year, was being auctioned off on the internet every few minutes for upwards of $700 (compared to the retail $499).

It seems that people can't bear to wait the 3-4 weeks when ordering directly from Apple, and are instead opting to pay hundreds more for overnight shipping from eBay.

Crazzzy!

Patience is a virtue people!

Would U pay more for an iPad 2 instead of waiting to purchase it at retail price?

Watch Out, Other PCs! Apple Is Taking Over!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

ipads help apple dominate the pc market

Apple loves you, iPad. Oh yes they do!

According to Goldman Sachs' Bill Shope, impressive iPad sales could make Apple "one of the largest vendors in the global personal computing market."

Here's more from Shope on Apple's progress in the PC market:

“Apple’s share of the PC market has been below 5 percent for most of the past 15 years, and even with the much-hyped 'iPod halo effect,' this level hasn’t changed in recent years. With the iPad, however, Apple is now offering a unique computing device that is priced for the mass market.

In fact, our Apple forecast assumes that the iPad segment will surpass Apple’s Mac business in revenues and profits by the end of fiscal 2011–the first full year of iPad shipments….If we include tablets in our PC unit forecast, then our estimates suggest Apple’s combined iPad and Mac market share would reach 12 percent in 2011.

Based on the current market share breakdown in the PC market, this could presumably make Apple one of the largest vendors in the combined PC and tablet market.

Exciting times for Apple! Sounds like competitors better bring their A-Game in 2011 but we don't think it will help too much.

Team Apple!!!!

Motorola is coming!

The cellphone company is partnering with Verizon FiOS to create a tablet with a 10-inch screen that allows users to watch TV.

It will operate with Google's Android software AND be lighter and thinner than the iPad.

Better watch your back, Apple.
