Apple sells 51,000 iPads in 2 Hours?
The iPad (or as you may know it, ‘that really big ipod touch’) became available for pre-order earlier today and it turns out there are plenty of idiots out there to buy this thing. Despite the iPad’s inability to do…well…anything, it seems to be selling like hotcakes. This just goes to show that I could take a dump in a box, slap an Apple logo on it, and become a millionaire.
According to Philip Elmer-DeWitt:
“51,000 orders in two hours,” announced Victor Castroll shortly after noon. He’s an analyst with Valcent Financial Group and an AAPL Sanity member who, with the blogger-analyst who calls himself deagol, has been monitoring the spreadsheet.
To be honest, this just makes me sad.
