I wasn't going to get one but my dorm's fire alarm went off. So, might as well since I'm up, right?

Just ordered a 32 GB Black and Slate iPad Mini!

And Apple, for god's sake, where is iTunes 11? This is getting too frustrating!

I guarantee you it'll be within the next 7 days. They have to update iTunes for the iPad mini, and there's no way they would update iTunes 10 at this point.

Ordering via the Apple Store iOS app seems faster than trying to use their web site.

I really like the look of the white iPad mini. I hope the iPad maxi gets a similar design next time.
