....at Tyson's Corner in Virginia, like the big dork that I am. I got off work at 2 (I work right next to the mall) and by the time I got in line I was # 85. by the time they opened the doors there must have been about 400 people in line. The whole experience was pretty cool, met some nice people. Apple even handed out free snacks (chic-fil-a nuggets) and water and other drinks. I'm typing this on my iPad now. Never got the first version, I held out. My only complaint is that they did not increase the screen resolution. Oh well, when they do, I.ll get that one and give this one to my wife.

I am getting one for my wife as a birthday gift this week. She dropped a hint when Apple emailed the iPad2 release.

I want one too and was hoping to get the wifi 64GB at Best Buy. I checked on line and seems they're out of stock as of last night. I can wait, I've spent way too much time in Apple lines already...

I love my Apple gadgets, don't get me wrong, but the idea of standing in line to get one is just something I'm not interested in. I can wait until supplies are up and have it delivered to me when the circus dies down.

Living in Canada I would have to wait until March 25th however my wife's sister lives in Washington state and will pick one up for me next week. I don't think I would stand in line for this.
