Apple says demand for the iPad 3 has been "off the charts"
The hype for new Apple products is not unlike teenage girls crying while waiting in line to see a cheesy pop artist, and it looks like that enthusiasm is as alive as ever with the
upcoming iPad 3
The iPad 3, which was announced at an Apple event in San Francisco, California by Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier this month, will officially launch on March 16. However, new reports say all pre-order iPad 3 stock has been sold, and that March 19 is the earliest ship date for online orders. According to
, new orders could even take as long as three weeks to fulfill.
"Customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased," said Apple in a statement. "Customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date."
iPad 3 features
a 2048x1536 resolution, 9.7-inch display, the A5X processor with a dual-core CPU and quad-core GPU, a rear-facing 5 MP iSight camera, LTE radio and 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB options. There's a Wi-Fi only version and a 4G LTE compatible version that runs on Verizon and AT&T 4G networks.
Customers who want an iPad 3 on launch day will have to make their way to an Apple store or some other brick-and-mortar store that sells iPads.
It's not uncommon for Apple's latest gadgets to sell out for pre-order shortly before the release. Last fall,
iPhone 4S pre-orders sold out
at AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, which are the three largest U.S. carriers. The iPhone even went on to crush Google's Android in U.S. Q4 sales,
outselling Android-based phones 4-to-1 on AT&T
outselling all Android phones combined at Verizon

how to manage money the american way.
$1000 rent /month
$200 utilites /month
$1200 car insurance /year
$2400 gas /year
$2000 health insurance /year
$500 Groceries /month
so that is $26,000 a year of necessities, everything else is optional, but for argument's sake lets say you spend $36,000 on necessities, leaving you with only $14k left.
4 iphones with plans are roughly $1500 /year per phone, home cable/internet/phone another 200/month. which is about $8,400/year.
so you have $5600 left. you could buy about 8 ipads with this money but...
going out 1x a week with a family of 4 will cost you about $5,000 a year
a $50,000 budget, oh wait i was supposed to add the "american" part of the budget.
$4000 annual family vacation for 4
$1200 nail/spa/massage treatments /year
$5000 24" rims you HAVE to have /every 2 years
$1500 tires to go with those rims /every 3 years
$60,000 your NEW car /every other time it gets repo'ed.
$6000 taxes you owe on your house/income
$10000 the other 4-5 times you go out a week /year
so you are -$50,000 for the year on a $50,000 "american budget" I forgot to add "bankruptcy the american way" but my post will be too large
