Earthquake Aftermath May Cause iPad 2 Supply Issues

The folks at iSuppli are saying that the aftermath of the Japanese earthquake could cause delays as Apple tries to meet demand for the iPad 2—they've identified no less than five components of Apple's new tablet that are sourced in Japan, including DRAM, an electronic compass, touchscreen overlay glass, and the system battery. Thankfully, there's no easier time than the present to remind yourself that it's just a goddamn gadget. [iSuppli]

Arggh! there goes a...snake a snake!

Boohoo, I can't get my expensive ass gadget because those stupid people in Japan can't get over their earthquake and tsunami. Shame on them, they should be working to satisfy my needs because I couldn't care less for their little excuses.
