No iPad for You! – Day 6

Day 6 of the stupidest product launch in American consumer products history.

So far, here’s what I’ve done to not buy an iPad:

1. Supported my local Apple dealer (not an Apple store, just a local store specializing in Apple products). I visited, tried out a display unit, and offered to buy one. During the cash register transaction, I realized it wasn’t a 3G model. End of transaction. Beginning of wait.

2. Tried to go to an Apple Store in a New Jersey mall. The mall was closed due to flooding.

3. Visited an Apple Store in Manhattan. No iPads for sale. Just a sign saying, more or less, come back tomorrow (when we may or may not sell you one).

4. Checked in at the local AT&T store. The staff laughed at me.

I’ll keep you posted.
