    I just got shipment notification on my bumpers this morning from the apple store. When I fedex track them, they are coming directly from China. Anyone elses order do this?

    Yep. And I'm not too happy either since I placed the order on the 24th with 2 day shipping (ordered the dock too). Delivery not expected until July 7th.

    Nope. I ordered my bumper on the 24th with overnight shipping. Mine was shipped from Ontario, California.

    Sort-of an off-topic-question, are Apple stores getting the bumpers at all right now? Is it futile to even try looking? I ordered one a few days ago but hoped to get one before a vacation on Saturday (and of course the current info is "ships for delivery July 7-(something I forget.)")

    My brother told me that the Apple store in SoHo had a bunch of black bumpers in stock yesterday evening.

    Well, that's strange. For the last three days I've been going to the Soho store and they always tell me they are out of stock. I actually went twice yesterday, once in the morning and once midday. I asked if they would know when they would have more in stock and they told me they didn't know. Regardless, I ended up going to the 5th avenue store and they had plenty in stock. There were also plenty of Asian people purchasing 2-5 bumpers and then heading back to the end of the line to purchase more. There was an Apple employee watching the bumpers. I guess they were afraid of theft or one person buying them all. Their two per person rule didn't work that well.
