No ordering yet

The rumor that Apple would start taking orders on the 25th for the iPad have proved false, but surely they will be doing it soon. The FTC Mail or Telephone Order Merchandise Rule requires that when you advertise a product you must have an expectation of shipping it within 30 days, and if something happens to extend it, then you have to get the customers approval.

So we can understand why Apple didn't take orders on the day of announcement with over two months to go before release, but if they are going to start shipping by the end of March, it would be a good guess that they could start taking orders anytime after the 1st. Of course, they may be running a few days late...
