It shocks me at how good apple advertises and make consumers believe that they should get their products. Or, maybe it does not surprise me that people blindly purchase stuff based upon a need to get what others have.

They show sales but they don't show or tell of returns I know of the apple store here claims they have about a 40% return rate so if that happens to just one store how many other apple stores are getting the same numbers of returns.

Very true, and another reason I just don't understand
Is there are better sound quality .MP3 players out there that produce better clarity, like SONY one's! What is wrong with these people buying an overpriced hype product!

apple may be slipping in the smartphone war but they still rule the tablet market. android tablet are a dime a dozen while one get exclusivity with the IOS packed ipad.

Oh, I guess they weren't expecting to sell all that many. Perhaps they need to start doing a bit of market research rather than offer lame excuses about selling out after such a short time.

Well no, the competition has stepped up, now there are many tablets that are all round better then the iPad and as apple refuse to bring anything new or evolve there is the iPad isn't on top.

Please leave your fanboyism out of it, iPad isn't the ''best''

Well this is meant to replace my laptop for browsing, so I should use this iPan with no Flash and restricted OS, that people still sacrifice just for the name and the hype trend. Useless good for nothing product, was looking forward to buying one.

Anyone surprised by this? Brand loyalty and being tied up in an ecosystem will bring about crazy sales. Also, people really feel the Ipad is the best tablet on the market. So this is not surprising at all.
