iPad Day! 
11 March 2010, 10:50pm

The iPad goes on sale tonight at 9:30pm my time, or 5:30am PST (tomorrow). I don't want to discuss how saulemander thinks it's a piece of junk, or how benji no longer supports apple, but rather, how the hell do i get one?!

They are going to be shipping April 3. My next time in the states in late July, when benji and ker_bbs get married.

International shipping for some countries starts around the same time, so I could potentially go to Japan to buy it in April. Hong Kong wasn't on the list, sadly.

I could also ship it to someone in the states and hope that after forwarding it to me, the Chinese government doesn't want their piece of the pie and charge 200% duty.

Or I could be patient. But shuffle God! I hate being patient.

Thoughts? Anyone coming to China and want to bring one?

He's down on them because they are suing HTC for patent infringement, which dampens creativity. But I'll let him speak for himself, if he chooses to...

I wrote about my switch away from Apple on TSP

I think you need to convince your mom to come visit you and bring you one!
