For Chinese Festival, Even Paper iPad 2s are in Short Supply

During the Qingming festival (also known as Ancestor Day or Tomb-Sweeping Day), Chinese communities burn effigies of money and luxury items to honor their ancestors. This year, iPad 2 replicas are among the popular items that people are purchasing to offer to their deceased relatives. But, like its real-life counterpart, paper iPad 2s are in short supply. Reuters spoke to Jeffrey Te, a...

Apple Sells 1 Million iPads During Debut Weekend, Completing 1 Million Lives

Big news, you guys: Apple sold a lot of iPad 2s over the weekend. How many? Nearly a million. Granted, another big opening weekend may seem about as newsworthy as a sunrise, but take a second to chew on this: most analysts expected Apple to move only about 350,000 to 400,000 tablets. Instead, the company ended up selling about three times as many as it did last April, when it unveiled the first...

Dev Scores Cheap Publicity by Shelling Out $900 to Skip iPad 2 Line

We know the Mac faithful can be a little fanatical. But even we were a little shocked by Hazem Sayed, a 53-year-old developer who paid his way to the front of the line at the Apple store on 5th Avenue here in NYC. Sayed strolled up to the front of the line and paid a 20-year-old college student $900 (more than the cost of a top-of-the-line iPad) to give him his spot. That means, depending on...

Why You Should Think Twice About Buying an iPad 2

Today the iPad 2 goes on sale and, as with most iDevices, there will be a gaggle of geeks lined up outside your local Apple store to snatch it up. It's only a small evolutionary update to the original iPad, but there's no denying its intrigue. Yet even after reading all of the glowing reviews, I'm still not sold. There's no doubt that the iPad 2 is going to sell like hotcakes, but I won't be...

NY Fed Prez Angers Hungry Mob With iPad 2 Gaffe

We know that the iPad is a popular device, and the iPad 2 will only make it more popular. It's an important piece of pop culture! We get it. But here's a piece of advice: When trying to explain to a crowd of angry people that inflation isn't really that bad and that the economy is doing well, you probably shouldn't turn to a luxury item like the iPad 2 as your example of economic stability....

Apple to Open (Gratuitous) Pop-Up Megastore at SXSW

In what must be one of the most gratuitous moves ever made, Apple will open a 5,000-square-foot store smack-dab in downtown Austin, built to last only slightly longer than the duration of the South by Southwest Interactive Conference. What could Apple possibly sell to the SXSW crowd that they don't already own? Why, official Steve Jobs tattoos, of course. Well, that or iPad 2s. But we bet Apple...

iPad 2 Reviews Are In: Long Live the King

The first batch of iPad 2 reviews have landed. Predictably, most reviewers can't speak more highly of the latest Apple tablet. Then again, as Laptop Magazine's Mark Spoonauer points out, "Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead." This isn't Apple playing catch-up or exploding into a new market; this the Cupertino crew simply treading water. And, if the reviews are to be...
