Once my iPad left Shenzhen, it arrived pretty quickly. Sometimes the updating is a little slower but it actually is in transit. LOL @ stirring the pot. When I was waiting for mine to arrive in Canada, I was pretty anxious too. Checked several times a day to see where my new prized possession was. It was well over a year, since I first heard of their development and knew I wanted one, so a few weeks of yearning after pre-ordering to feel it actually in my hands was relatively short.
