    Of those 500 stores, I'm willing to bet that each location gets one or two iPads. That's just a drop

    in the bucket. Why shouldn't one of Apple's largest outlets of iPhone sales get a crack at the iPad?

    I think I got on a waiting list at my local Radio Shack a year ago, and they never called. I called them for the first 2-3 months during which time I didn't move one spot on the list, while they claimed to have not received any iPhones. So, they can kiss my a**.

    When I woke up this morning, I immediately called my local Radio Shack store. A chick picks up the phone and says that they only have one iPad2 left! I ask which model and she tells me 16 GB black Wifi. Luckily for me, that was the exact model and color which I wanted. I told her thanks and then I slammed the phone down and prepared to get ready for action.

    I got dressed in literally less than one minute and I ran like a deranged madman down to the store, which was only 10 minutes away. When I arrived at the store, gasping for breath and sweaty from all the running, I walk up to the counter and ask the guy behind the counter about an iPad 2, and he informs me that they still had that one left! So I bought it! I was going to get a smart cover, but they didn't have the color I wanted, so I'm going to wait. They also tried to push Applecare on me, but I was having none of that.

    I haven't even opened my iPad yet, I'm still out of breath, but I'll get around to it a bit later for sure. I can't believe I got the last damn one in the entire store! I guess I was lucky for a change. I was also just on and cancelled my previous iPad order, which wouldn't be arriving for almost a month from now. Screw that.

    First Shack I called this morning answered at 7:20 even though they don't open until 10. Confirmed they had "some" in stock. First 2 choices: 64 gb AT&T 3G and 16 gb white wifi no go. Did have. 16 gb black wifi "woe be happy to hold for you". Gave them my name, showed up at 10:15, already people in line just in case, out with new iPad! One downer, only case was grey smart cover. Oh well. Otherwise a great experience.
