[Apple’s] focus this week has been to troubleshoot all the iPad 2s that customers are returning to the stores. One iPad came back with a post it note on it that said “Wife said no.” It was escalated as something funny, and two of the VPs got wind of it. They sent the guy an iPad 2 with a note on it that said “Apple said yes.”

Rupe’s iPad newspaper launching next week

Party time with Rupe!

News Corp.’s iPad-exclusive newspaper, The Daily, will be launching next Wednesday here in Manhattan. The launch was pushed back, so the rumors say, because Apple ran into some tech issues with a new publication subscription service that will debut along with The Daily.

Some bloggers have skewered Rupert Murdoch ahead of the launch, saying the world isn’t at all ready for an iPad-exclusive newspaper — and that iPad buyers aren’t the types to subscribe to a newspaper anyway. 

We’ll see what it’s all about next week, with live reporting here and at CNNMoney. In the meantime, can you fix a copy-editor’s nightmare and find the spelling error in the widely distributed invitation above? -Julianne

Nerdy update: Looks like “transferrable” is an accepted, but not preferred, way to spell it. But I get a squiggly red line when I write it with two Rs in Tumblr, and everyone knows that’s the final word when it comes to spelling amirite?
