...on Sunday, November 20, 2011. Apple sent me confirmation of my order an hour later. The next day, I received notification that my order has been received and it was shipped. The email gave me a link to FedEx. The email told me to expect the iPad around 11/28 or 11/29. GREAT!
Since this timeframe gave me a whole week, I started looking up various applications that I would install on the new iPad. This iPad would be dedicated to music--writing music, editting music scores, etc.
This past Tuesday, November 22, I got an email from Apple telling me that FedEx was not able to deliver the iPad due to restrictions! Say what? So I got back to the FedEx link and behold, FedEx tried to deliver the iPad to my home address and could not give it to me because the package needed a signature. WHOA! Apple sent my new iPad two day AIR! I didn't ask for this service but I got it! How cool is that?
Picked up the iPad that afternoon. I started setting up the iPad, giving it a unique name, started installing apps. I discovered this iPad2 didn't have the os5.0.1 installed, did that. I still can't believe how fast, efficient, and super Apple/Fed-Ex was to get this new iPad2 to me.
Just one more reason to be Thankful!
