    Apple could learn from "Enterprise" Chief of Engineering, Montgomery Scott. Under promise and over deliver.

    NBC never gets their stories straight--from the LA Times site today:

    Apple told USA Today on Sunday that "customer response to the new iPad has been off the charts and the quantity available for pre-order has been purchased."

    Read the entire article--we will get our iPads on Friday.

    ETA, assuming it was ordered in the small window and you got a delivery confirmation of the 16th.

    Nah, I don't think that's correct. I think they ran out of the stock slated for March 16 delivery so any orders placed after that slipped to later delivery dates. Oh sure, I have Chrome auto-refresh my order page every 2 minutes but I'm pretty sure that if we ordered on time and our order says delivers on March 16 we'll get them on March 16.

    If your shipment date is based on the Fedex or UPS tracking info, you're golden. If you still cannot see any shipment status, then it could be quite iffy.

    Just found out my Dad pre-ordered me the 32GB wifi!!! Hot damn I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas. All set for a 3/16 delivery date. I don't know what I did to deserve this but Happy 37th Birthday to me;) My six year old is excited because he gets my 1st generation!

    Don't be so certain. UPS always has wacky tracking info. I got the same message when I track mine. Seen similar in the past. The tracking info will get updated when they load the plane load of iPads. ;)

    Mine has just arrived in Sydney today - delivering via standard shipping. I ordered the moment the store came online after the launch.

    What are the odds I may receive it early? 4 days seems a long time to get from the airport to me (I live very close)

    Anyone else in Sydney got this (or other) news?

    This is my first iPad, purchased by my partner as a gift. So I'm extremely excited!!!
