How to Get an iPad 2

The lines for the iPad 2 have been long and dragged on for weeks the launch. Many have lamented that they haven’t been able to get one, despite the wait .
Cult of Mac founder Leander Kahney was interviewed by NPR on the iPad 2 shortage and how he went about getting his hands on one just hours after launch.
CHACE: Do you have an iPad 2?
Mr. KAHNEY: Yup. I picked one up on opening day.
CHACE: How did you do it?
Mr. KAHNEY: Well…
(Soundbite of laughter)
Mr. KAHNEY: I cut in line.
(Soundbite of laughter)
Mr. KAHNEY: I hate to say that.
CHACE: No.
(Soundbite of laughter)
CHACE: Here’s the thing, though, you can order this product online and it will come in a few weeks. Or you could walk down the street and buy a tablet from a competitor.
Mr. KAHNEY: Well, I don’t think there’s any chance of that at all. And I don’t think people are going to get to the competitors, because they can’t get an iPad. I think it just makes them more determined.
