Apple told customers they could begin ordering immediately following yesterday's announcement in San Francisco. Within minutes, Apple's order site crashed because of the amount of customers going on-line. The problem continued on-and-off almost all day leading to thousands of complaints on Facebook and Twitter. The site appears to be back up now. The new iPad hits stores next Friday - starting price is $499.
