Apple's brand new Retina Display iPad mini is starting to trickle into stores, which is great since that means there's a chance you'll be able to get your hands on one soon. Since availability is so limited, however, finding out if any are available near you is important, and it turns out there's an online resource that can help.
Apple's soft launch for the Retina Display iPad mini on Tuesday seemed to confirm concerns that inventory would be very limited, and Wednesday morning's checks back that up. Many of the Apple retail store locations The Mac Observer checked were all showing no inventory for personal pickup orders, and most models are showing a 5 to 10 day wait time for online orders.
Apple surprised everyone on Tuesday morning by quietly launching it's brand new Retina Display iPad mini, but getting one in your hands today is easier said than done. While you can order online for delivery in a few days, picking one up in a store is near impossible, and you most likely won't find any display models, either.
Apple quietly began selling the brand new iPad mini with Retina Display Tuesday morning, and at first it appeared that the only way to get one would be to order online for delivery, or visit your local Apple Store in person.

The SOEN Transit Bluetooth speaker is designed to be the very best speaker of its kind. Measuring just 32 cubic inches, it's designed to be taken anywhere, and it exudes class in packaging, accessories, design, features, convenience and sound. However, design constraints place limits on performance. John Martellaro sizes it all up.
In iOS 7's Control Center, Apple essentially took the old pop-up music controls and added heaps of extra functionality, and it’s a very welcome change. One great feature of the old-style pop-up music controls was the button that would take you to whichever app was playing audio. However, in Control Center no such button appears even though the funtionality is still there. Michael Johnston shows us exactly where it's hidden away.
