Adult webcam hosting demo - Apple store not updating

But drats, reservations are limited to one per i Tunes account.

Luckily I have a second account so I used that to place the reservation. The employee emerges a few minutes later with the i Pad and I hand over my credit card. He gives my credit card to one of the staff there and says, “I want you to help me ring up this purchase.” Guy #2 (looking at the handheld terminal) — “Why don’t you just use that? uh, pre-authorization.” Guy #2 — “Ok.” He swipes my card and they click around for about half a minute while looking at their monitor and whispering.

Once in a while, during the off season, away from events, Apple does update products.

I found this whole situation pretty funny considering I had never bought an Apple product prior to this madness (the i Pod Touch I use at work was given to me by my medical school).
