    Hey everyone, I just purchased a 12'' PB and noticed that on Fedex's website, my shipment has gone to two different places in Taiwan, to Alaska, and then back to another airport in Taiwan. Anyone have any clue as to whats going on there?? Its got me baffled! BTW I live in Maryland.

    Poor thing got too cold in Alaska and ran back.:D

    But seriously folks, I do recall another thread a while back where there was a particular reason for the "ship to" Alaska trip...but I can't answer for the return flight.

    Times reported on Fedex's website are the local times where the scan happened. Since Taiwan is several hours ahead of the US, what you describe is very possible since the tracking system sorts by the local time and not Greenwich time.

    Enjpoy your system when it arrives.

    When I got my iBook I saw the same thing. It arrived on time. I think it's just the time zones and Fed Ex's scanning system.

    hmm like everyone else I had the same concerns that my iBook accidnetaly went back to Taiwan in November but it arrived before most other people so I was happy.

    there was really bad weather (high winds) in Alaska the other day... no planes could land or take off. but i doubt that was what you experienced.
