The local store, 5 mins away, will be selling the 3G at 5 PM today, and there are no lines. The Apple store is an hour away and I would rather just but it at the Best Buy. My question is this: Will Apple honor replacements / warranties etc. if I bought the product at a Buy Buy? I.e if I have a problem with my device and I take it to the Genius bar, and the Genius finds a problem with the device in the first year, then will they still replace / repair or? Or will I have to go to best Buy? 15" Macbook Pro 2.2 Ghz Mac OS X (10.6.1) MBP (2007), Mac Mini (2009), Iphone 3G...|ipad-3g-buy-apple-store-buy

So after one month of ownership I had my ipad stolen from my hotel room. Sense it was connected to mobile-me, I was able to lock the device, but I am sure it has been wiped by now. Does anyone know if apple can do anything? I would think that the serial number is detected in the sync process, so if anyone adds it to there itunes account it would be visible, but I am probably out of luck. Any ideas? ipad 16 gig WIFI iPhone OS 3.1.3...|ipad-stolen

My girlfriends ipad got stolen the other day. She didnt have a mobileme account nor did she have any other tracking software. If the thief did a factory reset and took out the sim card can she still track it? or is she SOL? Can she find it through iTunes or from the serial number?

I concluded that with buying an Apple ipad2, I made ​​the worst investment. Unfortunately, I realized that the philosophy that you build the software for these devices is to extort money from clients without providing them the right to choice. Specifically, at this point I am feeling frustrated that I can not copy .mp3 files to ipad from my home computer, as any device can do. These files do not contain stolen music and, yes, is a certain reason to be unhappy client! I am very sorry that I don't bought a Samsung Android device and I will share my experience all those who need it....|store-playing-stolen-music-files-ipad-computer-world-time
