    Well, i just woke up and recieved an email saying my shuffle has been shipped via federal express!! So i thought id make a thread where everyone can post when they get theres, then what they like best about it, post some pictures, or just discuss anything about them.

    I cannot wait for mine to arrive:D!!!

    joshwest.. did you do the standard shipping (no extra fees) or did you pay more for it to arrive earlier?

    Well, the reason i asked about the shipping method is because i wasnt sure when mine was arriving because i did the standard no charge shipping... but i just went and looked right now and mine is due for Nov. 1 at 6:00pm :D

    feeling somewhat cheated....

    Just got shipping confirmation from Apple (10pm EST Oct. 30). For the extra $10 (two day shipping) I have paid my expected delivery date is now Nov. 6. A solid week to wait for my new shuffle to travel from China(!). Why would they sell me 2 day shipping for something coming from China? I am annoyed.

    Tell ya what - if my local AppleCentre has these (and it's not unknown for them to get stuff before even the US does) I'm going to get one today and try and post the first pics.

    Doubt it though, reports are we're getting 6 million of them on the 11th - that's one for every 3.5 people in the country.

    Same deal here except that they're not offering any expected delivery date. FedEx tells me that it was picked up in Suzhou, China yesterday, but that's all the info they provide. Ah well, at least I know it's en route.

    And not that this will provide all that much solace, but we'd likely be waiting even longer if we hadn't paid the extra $10.

    well, extra payment for faster shipping makes no sense. why? since all new products are shipped from China, for international shipment, it has only one option. (1-2 days shipping). therefore, standard you chose for order won't be applied for this. if you ordered with expedited, you should ask Apple to get refund. trust me.

    If anyone here paid extra for shipping, you got ripped off. They can't ship Fedex GROUND from China, it's the same service for everyone.
