I was at three different apple stores. They open their doors earlier than the mall to sell a small amount of iPads. Am I supposed to assume they get a delivery every single morning including Sunday\'s?

You don\'t need to assume anything, but in fact, Apple stores are getting frequent, if not almost daily shipments. They are not artificially limiting sales.

Apple stores get deliveries everyday except for Sunday and Monday. And that is because there is no shipments sent out from distribution on Saturday or Sunday.

They should be able to sell it any way they please. Selling it as it trickles in or holding it for a huge weekend sale. Don\'t let Apple dictate it.

That\'s ridiculous. This is a business agreement, not government intervention in how a business conducts itself. Apple has a very specific business model, and they have a negotiated agreement with Best But as a reseller in order to maintain the integrity of that business model. BestBuy, if the rumor is true, did not honor that agreement by withholding stock. It\'s very simple. This isn\'t a matter of control or anyone dictating how another business operates. It\'s about honoring a negotiated contract that was entered into willfully by both companies.

The Best Buy in Sherman Oaks CA would no sell any for the past month. The next day from the release date they put up signs saying you can pre-order one and so i did. I got it in about a week. Then I went in to order a second one they said that there not taking any orders anymore. It it was like that for over a month now they wouldn\'t sell to anyone.
