Did you get your iPad pre-order email?
I got mine and I didn't even know I was on Apple's email list. I sure as hell didn't sign up for it. They must have their ways. Somehow I feel like iTunes is to blame. Why do I download podcasts?!?
But I certainly won't be pre-ordering any silly iPads. Unless maybe it's to do this to it.
I know Apple's dirty game: They get everyone to pre-order and then like a month after those iPad ship, they offer a cheaper, thinner iPad with more storage and more colors and purposefully make all those first iPad buyers look like idiots. And then all those initial iPad owners get embarrassed and so they buy a new iPad and then Steve Jobs goes and pleasures himself in a closet the size of the average Americans' house.
Why would I get myself caught up in that vicious cycle?
The better system is to mock all your friends with iPads while waiting for the second generation iPads to come out. Then you get the better, new iPad and you get to mock your friends with iPads a second time about how old and crappy their old iPad is.
That way, you get to have your iPad and eat it too!
I'll never say that again.
