Steve Jobs with iPad on Chair

UPDATE: Add this gem to the list, in response to an (admittedly overboard) customer complaint from Switzerland that accused Steve Jobs of "deliberately pulling the wool over the rest of the worlds [sic] eyes."

Are you nuts? We are doing the best we can. We need enough units to have a responsible and great launch.

We're running out of clever things to say about Steve Jobs' recent passion for taking over customer support at Apple, so we'll just pass along his latest missives about the iPad 3G and its shipping status, US and international. The first one is fairly clear:

will there also be 3G models of the iPad released worldwide on the end of may or only the wifi models. Would be nice to know. Can't wait.

Job's answer:

Both models will be released at the end of May. Sorry for the delay

A question from iCuckoo Push [$0.99 - iTunes link] developer Manuel is where it gets trickier:

will the iPad 3G models still ship on time as planned (end of April) in the US, if I order one today? Or will the 3G US orders be postponed as well?

The response:


Sent from my iPhone

Um, yes to the on time or yes to the postponed? Need. More. Words!
