iPods in short supply for Christmas

“Hoping to get an Apple iPod for Christmas? You could be out of luck. Apple Computer’s digital music player is in short supply in many markets, including the US and UK.

Most stores in New York have sold out of the larger capacity models and do not expect to get more before the holidays.”

It is best to wait after christmas anyways for products to go down in price and availability.

Just wait people.

yeah…but that kinda defies the whole purpose of getting it for Christmas…

What do I care though…I bought the 3G as soon as it came out…LOL

These people are not looking hard enough or do not know how to go to apple.com and numerous other online shops that still have them.

Ya maybe they are sold out in stores, but getting one online is simple and easy and very available. I know this because I just bought a few.

I’m waiting until after the expo just case they update, upgrade or put out a new iPod.  Is that a good thing to do?

When’s the expo?  Don’t expect them to be releasing a newer version for a while…They just upped the storage capacity not too long ago, and I don’t see them doing that again, until the 4G’s come out…

This is the real test for apple.  Can they actually deliver the goods when people start to really get into the products? And, if not, who will they blame, especially since Motorola isn’t even faintly involved in the iPod’s production (let alone anything else at this point)?
