I saw this in Newsweek the other day. The people at Flipboard are definitely on to something. Now I just need an iPad!!
"Things have been pretty wild around the headquarters of Flipboard lately. This tiny company (19 employees) launched its first iPad app in July, and so many people wanted to download it that within 20 minutes Flipboard’s servers were maxed out. Engineers scurried around trying to fix the problem, but after 36 hours, the only thing Flipboard could do was put people on a waiting list. Two weeks later it finally got everyone signed up. “It’s just an incredible reaction that we’ve gotten. We never anticipated it would be so instantaneous,” says cofounder and CEO Mike McCue."
