Would you want to be a FedEx driver when the location of your truck were available for ALL to see, including nuts/robbers/more nuts, and other diverse criminals? Transporting a truck full of iPad 3x is probably riskier than driving a Brinks and those guards are armed:eek:

A couple of things I read today:

1. A woman spoke with another woman whose husband works for UPS in Nashville. Said that a week or so ago they set up a staging area with trailers and a tall fence. Then came the armed guards who were present 24/7 until the contents of the trailers left today for delivery. Her husband asked if it was a shipment from Ft. Knox (nearby), and was told no, it is the new iPads. AMAZING.

2. The trucks shipping long haul are not "regular" FedEx trucks, they're special hires for this transport only. UNREAL.

I'm glad to see that others find our iPads just as valuable as we do. :)

Mine is now in the air on its way from Louisville to ft Lauderdale. My cover came yesterday and my husband asked our ups guy if we could expect the same timeframe on Friday. He said he is usually in our development at the same time but that they expect Friday to be a bit busy! Lol!!! Going for a massage erly in the morning so I will be all relaxed and redy for my upgrade from my belved iPad 1!

Just got an update.... My iPad has departed Fedex location in Memphis, TN after sitting there for 10 hours.



So Col.bris, let us know what you think. How great is the new screen on the iPad?

That's brilliant Col. I should have taken a drive up to see you. My daughter is waiting for hers now. It arrived in Brisbane last night! She is so excited!

Very good. They are moving now. Mine has been updated to " in transit" and made two stops yet it's still in Ten. I'm in southern south , southern Fl. Can't get no further south or you heading for Cuba.

I just read that Wal-Mart is selling them immediately after midnight, so I could have stayed up and participated in one of their events like Black Friday sales. Nahhhhh. I am going to sleep in, watch the morning news about the chaos, and then go pick mine up at my leasure.

I'm tempted to go get one and return the one that comes via FedEx. But I think I can hold off and just wait.

I may run down and just see what the new one looks like in person tonight.

My Walmart only has 5 of the "$898 models" in stock and will start selling at midnight. I'm fighting the urge to go see... ugh. I did just notice that mine has left Indy en route to its final destination prior to becoming mine, all mine. :)
