If you hadn't already preordered your iPad when it became available earlier this month (and trust me — there were a lot of you), then you'll have to wait an extra week to get your hands on it , while your keyboard accessories will take even longer to arrive. I'm not surprised at the iPad fever — since it seems everything that Apple releases turns to gadget gold — but I guess I am surprised that Apple didn't anticipate the lust for the tablet and make more to begin with. Reminds me of the great Wii shortage of 2007.
And just because you didn't get a walk-through of the iPad by Steve Jobs at the launch event in January doesn't mean you shouldn't get your own personalized tour of the iPad now. Apple just released a series of walk-throughs on its site to bring you up to speed on all that the iPad is capable of. Consider it an amuse-bouche to the full iPad meal coming up later this week.
