    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?? :confused:

    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???

    Exactly--and I would think they would jump through hoops to keep a company like APPLE happy!;)

    Mine says

    Delivers by Apr 03, 2010

    I am hoping for sooner, won't know to much until tracking numbers are in UPS's system.

    Still waiting for my shipping info. My order status still says prepared for shipment. Here's hoping mine is on time. I live outside Boston and my area does have Sat. delivery!

    Under my UPS shipment notification, under "service" it says "EXPRESS" -- I wonder of that means the express
    services you mentioned above?

    I checked with Apple because UPS said they do not deliver to my Zip code on Saturday, and they said they are sticking to the Saturday delivery?????

    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.
