New iPad 2 dock revealed; Apple offers $100 refund to recent iPad buyers - Page 2

Do you think Apple should have announced well in advance that the iPad 2 is coming out March 11th so don't bother buying one right now?

Everyone knows that today's tech wonder is tomorrow's doorstop, yet people still complain when their Great New Thing becomes Old News. Of course, now the people who bought their iPads FIFTEEN days ago will complain mightily. And so it goes.

Not site why apple stopped doing this but before a new update, they would run put of stock for two weeks. Avoiding all the complaints.

And losing two weeks of sales. I think the new approach is much better for Apple and for recent purchasers.
