Apple iPad Sale Slows Down

ITPINOYs and the tech world were probably not too surprised that last friday's release of apple ipad was insanely successful - imagine this, apple has sold 51k units in just two hours and wounded up selling around 120k units on the same day it was made online!

the rush however seems to have simmered down as reports have shown a steady drop of sales over the weekend.

some attributed this to reports like how apple is planning to treat battery failures (they will just replace the whole unit for $99), it also includes a text-to-speech tool (which caused legal issues with amazon), and that it's 3G edition does not require a service contract (instead allows users to pay $4.99/mo for 250MB data or $29.99/mo for an unlimited deal).

  2. That's interesting post. Very informative. Thanks for sharing...

today marks our 10th year together, i must say it has been a sweet journey. unfortunately, time has come for me to walk away.

know that i am glad to have witnessed you grow - your fun emojis, crazy virals, and live videos i will sorely miss. oh i always thought it’s cool…

I've been working to understand exactly what happened and how to make sure this doesn't happen again.
