Hey guys just thought I might let you know. I have a friend who works for UPS and he just called me to let me know that they just unloaded a plane from China. He said there were approximately 8,000 individual boxes (on palates of course.) From Apple, now I am not saying that these are all iPads but...I bet 98% of them are. The crazy thing was he said that there was nothing addressed to the Apple Stores here in town. Would they be getting their's by some other shipping method? Also since my friend works at the distribution point, I was thinking about asking or bribing him to let me get mine early. Does anyone know if we could pull this off? I definitely don't want him to get fired but if I could be playing on my iPad tonight, I'd definitely hook him up. So if any of you guys work at UPS and you know any way to get away with it let me know? And what do you guys think about no boxes for the Apple Store? Maybe they already have them? Maybe on another plane? Or will they come on a truck from Cali? Just wondering.
