Hurricane Sandy May Delay Apple’s iPad mini Launch In New York City
Hurricane Sandy has caused a massive amount of damage across the east coast this week. New York City was hit along with many other cities in the hurricane’s path causing power outages, severe damage, and evacuations. Along with the destruction, it seems that Apple may have to delay its iPad mini launch at the 5th Avenue Store in New York City due to the hurricane's aftermath. According to Fortune:
Three of the four commuter tunnels into Manhattan are full of water. Cars trying to drive across the bridges with fewer than three riders are being stopped on the entry ramps. The line for buses at Brooklyn's Barclays Center Thursday morning was five deep and wrapped around three city blocks.While there’s no actual damage to the Apple Store, there’s really no way for anyone to get there. With flooded streets and a lack of alternative transportation, it looks like hopeful iPad mini buyers may have to wait a little while longer to pick one up. We hope that everyone who was affected by Hurricane Sandy’s destruction is safe and sound, iPad mini or not. Source: Fortune Via: Cult of Mac
