Hey hey I have a question, but it's not technical. Since apple refreshed it's line of iPads I was wondering were do all the iPads without a happy home go? You know they can't actually sell all of the iPads before refreshing the line or can they? I think this question can apply to Apple's entire line up of electronics. Just wondering because I'm pretty sure a store should have some older models left over right?

As long as supplies last, the old and busted version is $100 off. Refurbed and old and busted is $350 (which I have to say is pretty damn good to get you in on iPad action) though I don’t see any of those in stock at the moment.

Refurbished iPad Wi-Fi | Apple Store

Refurbished 1st generation iPads have just had their prices adjusted to account for the release of the iPad 2. 16GB wi-fi are $349. A killer deal if you ask me and perfect if you can’t swing $499 but want to get in on iPad action :)

Keep in mind that Apple offers a full warranty with all refurbished items and you can still buy AppleCare for refurbished items. Honestly, opening the box you’d never know it had been refurbished.

Hey, I'm getting an iPad later, should I get applecare? Also this is less mac related but I'm not GB literate! Is 1gb of 3G internet enough? Like how much is that?
Thanks for the Growl thing by the way

1GB of bandwidth… well, if you’re doing mostly web surfing and email, you might be ok with 1GB. It’s tough to say. Stay. Away. From. Streaming.

To give you a gauge, I stream a lot of Pandora and BBC podcasts on my phone and I’ve busted through 2GB every month since I’ve owned my iPhone. There’s been months I’ve gone close to 4GB. I’d have a hard time staying under 1GB. However, you may be ok.

I accidentally let my ipad run out of battery and I hadn't realized until about a week later. I've just plugged it into my wall adapter and it's been charging for about 20 minutes but I'm still not getting any kind of response from it when I try to unlock it, is this normal or should I take it in to the genius bar?

Not sure about the iPad, but on my iPhone or my prior iPod Touch, if they are/were stone cold dead it would take a few minutes of juicing up before any response whatsoever. With the iPad being all battery, I wouldn’t be surprised if it needs to juice up a bit. 

20 minutes seems a bit long, but maybe that’s normal. You can try holding the home and lock buttons for about 10 seconds and that should give it a hard reboot and may spring it to life (if there’s sufficient juice).

I always wanted to get the iPad since its release but I keep on thinking what if they release another version with a cam just like what they did to the iPod touch. I bought an iPod touch the first time it was released and when they upgraded it I bought another one, and then they release a newer one with camera and I got tired of buying another one thinking they'll release another new.

Will Apple release an iPad with camera or is it just a rumor? If they will so I will just wait for the next gen iPad with camera and not disappointed anymore just like what happened with my iPod touch.

Sit on that cash. Rumor’s looking like sometime in mid/late Q1 2011 for the new one. I’m holding off too.
