For Apple, “while supplies last” is about two days.
About 48 hours after Apple discontinued the iPod touch – the last iPod the company was still selling – Apple has run out of supplies.
Third parties still have a few dwindling supplies, and there’s always Craigslist and eBay, although prices have been crazily jacked up.
There’s nothing like discontinuing a product to make it popular!
