and Apple

What’s the deal with and Apple? They haven’t stocked Apple iPods for like a (insert adjecticve meaning a long time here) months. Did Steve turn off the tap? Was their realtionship with HP exclusively? I’ve a got a $30 coupon burning a hole in my pocket and papa needs a new 5G iPod (with video). I suppose I could buy a 512 mb shuffle, but why don’t I just buy a car that runs on leaded gas instead. If you know the answer, please feel free to comment.
