    With the workload these guys have I would seriously doubt they would come back 3 times to the same address. They would fudge the report first.

    Are you kidding me, apple probably equipped the trucks with GPS units and the driver will be fired if they don't follow protocol. Apple put a LOT of money into this release!

    Yea more than likely apple is tracking the shipments in real time satellite video feeds to not only make sure the deliveries were made but to record the expressions of launch day ipad owners. Either that, or, they already charged your credit card and if you missed Saturday delivery you'll get it Monday/Teusday the latest. Don't mind me I'm just bitter I still have to wait for my 3G.

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about! But I think apple can afford at least the F22-Raptors.;)

    Just got mine an hour ago. There definitely must be some special handling going on for the iPads as UPS never delivers to my part of town on weekends. I asked the UPS delivery guy about it and he said that the company has a special agreement with Apple to deliver just the iPads. I asked him how many are they delivering (in Anchorage, AK)? He said he had heard it was around 500. Pretty interesting comments.

    My delivery guy said he had a truckfull of these and wasn't sure if there was anything else in the truck.

    I printed the auth page from my order that said they could leave it if I wasn't home. I was home.

    I went by the Apple Store to see if they had the separate wall charger (they didn't). They were sold out (of iPads) and a line was forming outside for the 3 o'clock cutoff so they could get the ones that weren't claimed yet (this was around noon-ish). Funny thing is... I went by Best Buy just a few blocks over and the guy said they received ONE HUNDRED and have only sold maybe half of them... there were only 15 or so people waiting in line this morning. So if you are in the Denver/Aurora area... and want to pick one up... call the Best Buy at Colorado & Mexico and they *might* still have some left!
