Sorry it this is the inappropriate place to post this.... But, WOOOO WOOOO WOOOO
I bought a refurbished iPad from the Apple web site on 11-11-10 for delivery on 10-17-10. And it was being shipped from Hong Kong of all places. Watching the tracking very intently, it just now started showing that it is on a truck in my area to be delivered TODAY!
Within hours I will have it in my hot little hands!
