Could Apple have messed up the iPad Mini Launch Anymore?

10/27 - Ordered the Mini WiFi, was told I could tether it to my iPhone 5 and get GPS

11/02 - Mini WiFi comes, tethering carrying GPS statement was inaccurate. need cellular

11/02 - Ordered Cellular Mini, Est Delivery 11/16

11/04 - Site updated my delivery from "Delivers 11/16" to "Ships Mid November"

11/07 - I received email from Apple saying "We will be shipping your iPad within 5 days"

11/12 - 5 days passed. No shipment.

11/13 - Apple site updated showing my order delivers 11/21

11/16 - I get shipping notice that says "Shipped: Delivers 11/22"

11/16 - I call FedEx and they said Apple missed the cutoff and as a result, the true delivery date would be 11/26

11/17 - I go into store and buy the Mini Cellular, and plan to return the one shipped to me.

11/17 - I get home, set up the Mini, and it has FOUR dead pixels

11/17 - I call the store back and they said all they can do is make me an appointment at the genius bar for two days later, and replace it with a brown box "refurb"

11/18 - I go into another store, and they happen to have them, and exchange it. I try it in the store, and it powers up, the screen flashed, then the entire right side of the screen died. Ouch. They exchanged it again, and now I SEEM to have one that works.

Tell me that's not a story worth being upset about.
