You want to hear something crazy? When I ordered my iPad on the 03/18, I ordered an extra cord for my iPod. It was shipped from SHENZHEN CN on 03/19 was in Pittsburgh on 03/20, and was delivered (by FedEx) and had to be signed for on 03/22 which was a Monday. If my one little cord traveled so fast, I have to believe that Apple has this under control. Do you think either FedEx or UPS wants to annoy SJ??
Can you imagine the arm twisting!?
We want to ship a million pieces all the same shape and weight. What kind of deal can you do for me? If you give me a good deal maybe I will use you for the next million.
The shipping confirmation email (at least
on mine) says "ships by" Apr 3rd
- key word "by" - could that mean it ships sooner???

I am hoping for sooner, won't know to much until tracking numbers are in UPS's system.
Apple said they "could" have a special deal worked out with UPS...
Now I don't know what to think, I am just going to wait it out
It's hard to imagine Denver area residents not getting the iPad on April 3rd. I used to work in a UPS call center and trust me... those folks are paid $8 per hour and are experts at NOTHING!
For big releases like this Apple usually has it worked out with the shippers to clear customs and be delivered when they say. Don't sweat it so much.
