Got a phone call from my mother in law while we were driving to Sheffield. She saw a TNT van driving past at just after 5, and they didnt call at her house, so I rang TNT (my wife was driving, not I!) and the very helpful lady checked my consignment number , and said it was because it was from Apple, and a high value item - some drivers do not like to leave parcels with neighbours in case something should go wrong.
SO I now have to wait until Monday (8am til 6pm!)!!!

I dont know about how it is there but when that happens here in the US I am still able to drive down the the company warehouse where all the packages get sent out from and pick it up. They make you sign a paper that you picked it up from the warehouse.
Yeah, they offered me that as an alternative - unfortunately
a) they aren't open today
b) the distribution center is 8o miles awaw and I don't drive lol.
So yeah, another day of waiting in. At least I don't have to book monday off as I work part time.
Twilight Marathon Worth It
Listen, I'm one of those guys who stumbled into the Twilight Series. I bought the first book, didn't know it was directed at teenage girls, liked it, bought the second and half way through the book I discovered the target audience. I was afraid they would take away my "man card" but read the rest of the series and saw Eclipse yesterday with my daughter. I loved the books, liked the movies, but you must REALLY like the twilight series to go to the marathon and miss your iPad .... so was it worth it (seeing the marathon and missing the iPad)?
Wellll, the marathon was booked before I knew the iPad was coming, so.....
And yeah I suppose it was. Its the only time they will all be shown together (at least somewhere I can go to) - at least it has given me an extra couple of days to rip more dvds for it
As for Twilight, I saw the first movie (because, you know, its vampires) and enjoyed it, my wife loved it so I bought her the book, then read it after her. Then bought the other 3 and read them all in a week or so. I don't claim that they are the height of literature, or whatever. But I enjoy them, so I read them.
I try not to let other peoples opinions sway my own.
Hell, im probably the only person who enjoyed Tank girl, Waterworld, Last Action Hero, AND Daredevil. And yeah, i think Michael bay did an OK job with transformers too. Im easily entertained!
Hate to tell you this
Just picked up my iPad today. You'll love it. I'm looking forward to hearing how you like yours when it arrives.
Apple requires a signature on delivery. Some carriers require, some dont.. good luck....

Incidentally, the cheap stand I got from Ebay is ****, I gave it a quick try, I wouldnt trust it to hold itself up, let alone my new baby. The cheap screen protectors is shite too - not clear enough, and left huge air bubbles which would not disperse. happily, the clear plastic shell for the back is great, and will prvent any scratches or scuffs
Still sync-ing - bah! Have to pick my son up from school in 4 minutes too. He is 5, wonder if he would be ok to walk home alone........
The wait is awful I phoned my Apple store and the guy said that there is a massive waiting list so I'd be better ordering online. So I did that on Friday (2nd July) and the estimated delivery date isn't until the 20th I keep refreshing the page daily, to see if it changes to 'This item has been shipped' even though the shipping date isn't until the 16th
I was going to get a dock, and then spotted the cheap eBay ones.. Am I best getting an Apple one?
Buy the best and you will always be happy.
