Alas, attempted is the word. Given yesterday’s root canal and ongoing lower back pain aggravated by an hour in the dentist’s chair, I wasn’t quite up to getting to the Apple Store at Shepherd’s Bush at 9, so I didn’t get there till 4ish and unfortunately that was too late. Shortly after I joined Djelibeybi in the line, a friendly Apple employee came by and told us that all the 3G iPad2s of any persuasion were claimed, so there wasn’t much point hanging around after that. Still, it was nice to get out of the house and smell the summery air – didn’t even need a jacket! Absolutely beautiful day.
Will try again early next week, but failing that I guess I’ll have to join the hordes ordering online and waiting a month to get theirs. *sigh*
