If such a useless and exorbitantly priced gadget as iPad2 was sold out as soon as it was released, that means there is no economic crisis any more. I don't know if it did exist at some point, but this is conclusive evidence that it's over. If people are willing to shell out over $700 for this useless extension of i-store, then they must be in a really great shape financially. Since iPad has no practical use, what people are paying for is bragging rights and an opportunity to spend even more money purchasing apps.
Something tells me that it isn't their own money that people are wasting on this silly toy, of course. There is a huge probability that, yet again, people are getting massively into debt to own yet another useless piece of junk. Which means that we are in for yet another round of collective insolvency.
