Linkology: The Best of the Internet for 3/18/11

Gmail power user?  If so, check out Smart Labels, new from Google Labs.  This is the logical extension of Gmail Priority Inbox, released last year.

The iPad 2, after two and a half days of being on sale, is sold out everywhere.  (I can testify to this personally.  Over the past weekend, I walked up to an Apple story only to be intercepted by an Apple employee in a blue shirt who told me, before I could say a word, that the iPad 2 is sold out, they don’t know when they’re getting more in, and my best bet was to order online.  I asked him if that’s what he tells anyone he makes eye contact with.  Yes, he said, and some who don’t.  That’s what sort of interest Apple retail locations are seeing.)

Speaking of the iPad 2, the Smart Cover is getting a ton of press.  iFixit has the skinny on how it works: “There are a total of THIRTY ONE magnets within the iPad 2 and Smart Cover: 10 magnets in the iPad 2, and a whopping 21 magnets inside the Smart Cover. They’re the reason why the cover works so well with the iPad 2.” Someone cue the “Magnets.  How do they work?” meme.
