20,000 orders per hour. That's 333 1/3 per minute, or about 5.5 per\nsecond. And since no one but a fanboi will buy one (just ask Larry or\n"news" if you don't believe that), that means there are a hell of a lot of\nfanbois out there.\n\n<[url]http://blog.phanfare.com/2010/03/apple-is-currently-selling-20000-ipads-per[/url]\n-hr-10mmhour/>\n\nWe just bought two iPads, about 30 minutes apart. Our order IDs are 10,000\napart. Assuming those order IDs are sequential, and they appear to be, then\nApple is selling 20,000 iPads per hour. Assuming most orders are for the\n9 model, and that people are only buying 1 per order, that means Apple\nis selling MM/hour. Of course that is not sustainable, but if they did\nit for a year, it would be .6B.\n\nNow, of course, we canâ€™t be sure every order was for an iPad. Apple does\nsell other stuff. But at 830am in the morning on the east coast, my guess\nis that most of the orders were for iPads.\n\nThis also means that Apple will sell out of all devices built in the\ninitial manufacturing run sometime this week.
