First of all, this isn't a bitch or whine!

Why is it I can order the 10.2 upgrade for $129 and get free shipping, or choose $5 second day shipping/$23 next-day shipping, and Apple is charging $19.99 USPS shipping for the up-to-date upgrades?

hmmm...

Apple is charging $19.99 for shipping and handling. If you buy Jaguar straight, you will get standard handling, but if you require an upgrade, they use very special handling. This handling is so special, in fact, that several lonely mom's-basement-dwelling Mac geeks have attempted to sneak into the Apple shipping hub, dressed as Jaguar upgrades, in a desperate attempt to be handled in this special way. You'll get you 20 bucks' worth, trust me. Or at least you'll get a happy Jaguar. :D

Does it actually say shipping and handling on the order form? Most of the online upgrades such as iDVD2 are listed as $19.95 with free shipping and handling. It just depends on how you look at it. Apple is basically making $16 profit for it and can call it what they want, but they just want more of your money.
