Am I the only one out there who thinks that if there are so many IPads that need to be delievered and if UPS can't handle it then,maybe they should have spread the wealth with Fed-Ex or some other delivery companys Just asking!

Na, I think they'll be able to handle the load. Maybe that's why a Saturday was selected over a regular shipping day?

UPS delivery - YIKES!

According to the UPS site, mine is sitting in Kentucky this morning. I guess the UPS Worldwide rep knew more than the Apple rep. Guess it is time to work on plan B - have it forwarded to me on vacation. Maybe I can be the only Apple customer to have my new IPad delivered to me as I sit by the pool sipping an adult beverage......

cool iam so ready ..i paid a kid 20.oo bucks to sit on the pouch in the morning to wait for the driver and knock on the door when he comes ..for i have been up half the night working on a project right now and trying to get out to the people who need it ..

my big problem is iam about three hours south of the Sacarmento and i still trying to get this stupid work program to work and work right ..so iam sitting wondering if it would be better to push the flyout date to tues and just get the program to work right before i try and install it on some one main frame ..or say s ..... it and drive up to the Sacarmento and pick up that way ..

Mine is in Columbia SC about 90 miles away since 6 AM.
I think that is probably the main hub for SC and I expect they will load it on truck and be heading to MB from there.

Have any of you tracked by http://www.packagetrackr.com

I find it really interesting that mine sat in Louisville for over twelve hours, was flown to Pittsburgh, and now is on a truck supposedly to me. I NEVER receive packages from this direction--they always move from Kentucky to Ohio.

This tracking service shows my IPad made it Minneapolis at 7:00am this morning and is on a truck headed to Duluth - I may actually get this. Of course UPS site shows it in Kentucky.

To me, it is quite fascinating--maybe that is why there were so many different answers given to customers. Maybe UPS actually had it planned out and the way it looks, the packages are not traveling their usual route, and the local carriers do not seem to be involved.

Ft Lauderdale Delivery

Hey Richard! I'm in Hollywood. I see that it was scanned in Miami this morning. It didn't say "out for delivery" the last time I looked. I guess we have a pretty good shot at it though.
