Reports: Apple halts delivery of some Verizon iPads

The company told one newspaper that an "extremely small" number of units were affected

Apple has halted the delivery of a small number of iPad 2s designed to work on the Verizon Wireless network because of a manufacturing glitch, according to news reports Friday.

The shipments were halted because some of the iPads carried identity codes already in use on other Apple products, which could cause problems on Verizon's network, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The number of affected devices was "extremely small," Apple told the newspaper.

Earlier Friday, the technology blog 9to5Mac reported that some iPad 2s being delivered from China were diverted to Apple mid-shipment. One buyer told the website that Apple is compensating affected users with a $50 credit or accessories.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Friday.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
