Apple Online makes it easier to order an iPad 2

The Apple Online Store was down earlier today, and while we didn't get any red iPhone 5s, we did get some feature improvements, including an easier way to order just the iPad 2 you want.

  1. Choose a color, black or white
  2. Choose a model, Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + 3G
  3. Choose a network, AT&T or Verizon in the US (if you chose Wi-Fi + 3G)

As you choose, your order is summarized and you can tap to continue on and place it. It's definitely an easier way to order, especially on an iPad.

Apple Store opens in BlackBerry hometown of Waterloo

Apple opened a handful of new Apple Stores today, none more amusingly placed than the one in Waterloo, Ontario, the hometown of BlackBerry maker RIM. Starting today, anyone in Waterloo who wants an iPhone rather than Bold, iPad rather than PlayBook can just wander on over. And according to @Steve_Gamble, they seem to be doing just that:

At the new Apple Store in Waterloo today. The number of Blackberries going dark is astounding!

Anyone else attending the opening of Apple in Waterloo? Any CrackBerry protests going? Let us know!

German vandals deface new flagship Hamburg Apple Store with a Windows logo

A couple of cheeky German guys decided to have a bit of fun this weekend by defacing the under construction Apple Store in Hamburg with a Windows logo.

Now before we get too upset by this, when we say deface it, it was more a bit of fun with no permanent lasting damage. Posing as a couple of construction workers, they climbed a ladder and pieced together a poor attempt at a Windows Logo.

In fact if you wanted to be really mean, you could say that this is an excellent deterrent to any would-be thieves! Take a look at the video after the break!
