The iPad 2 has been short in supply in the US, so I guess it would be the same here as well.The stores are anticipating a lot of buyers on the first day that Power Mac Center posted a ‘reminder’ on their Facebook page that supplies are on a first come, first served basis.
But I like the ‘come-on’ of Digital Hub — FREE Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee!
So where do you think I’ll go?
Um, Honey, I want Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee for breakfast tomorrow. Can you give me PHP34,000 please?
