In exactly one minute, at 5:30am Pacific Standard Time, the Apple iPad will be available for pre-order on Apple.com. You still won’t see the unit until April 3rd, but you can pre-order today.

Alright. Are they gone? Good, that gets rid of the riff-raff and gadget freaks. I’m sure they’ll be back after Apple’s servers crash because millions like them ran to the store to refresh their screens endlessly until it finally popped up with an order screen.
You see, the news on when they would officially open their doors to the cyber-campers who stayed up all night guzzling Mountain Dew and Starbucks to wait for the big event broke last night on The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Then it proliferated and hit CNet, Mashable! and now I’m perpetuating it in a mad sort of Dr. Evil kind of way.
Oh, hell, it just occurred to me that you can also buy an iPad through the Apple Store on the iPhone. Now my service will be out, I guarantee it. Son ofa… with the… dagnab… fooz…
Good thing it’s Friday. Maybe Twitter will manage to stay up and running for a whole day today. That might make up for my iPhone being offline thanks to the iPad-buying dweebs.
Note to the reader: if you’re reading this with anything but humor, you really need to take a day off and relax a little. This is a joke, already.
