Anybody else have this reported in their Leopard package tracking? Originally I had this morning by 10:30am, but I was just recently updated with a Delivery Exception "Future Delivery Requested" and now my delivery time is pushed back to 7pm today. Apple trying to make sure EST folks receive it as close to 6pm as possible? Only thing I can think of as I surely never made a late delivery request.

well mine didn't update to reflect the change until 8:37am...Have to believe it's just a request that Apple made to get us as close to regular store release at 6pm. Mine only got to "At local FedEx facility".....Actually I suspect it could be also a matter of relation to major metro areas. I'm close to the airport sort facility, but not being say in DC proper might also be why the kickback.....just creates a minor headache for me having someone home to sign for it now that's all......kinda like 2nd Xmas emotions today if you know what I mean.

You'll probably still get it before 6. FedEx doesn't update instantly. I checked at 7:30 and the last activity was at 8 PM last night. I checked when I got here to work and it was updated with activity at 5:30 AM and 7:50 AM.

mine still shows as on fedex vehicle for delivery and on time for 10:30AM...I really hope they don't push it back though because the University's package center closes at 5pm:(

Mine still says today by 10:30am. That's in an hour and 15 minutes.

It left Indianapolis at 7:06am (a little over 2 hours ago). I live in South Jersey.

I highly doubt it's coming before 10:30...

FedEx just delivered me my copy of Leopard. :)

And no, in case you were wondering, it does not come with a t-shirt. If you want one of those, you will need to go to an Apple Store.

No way. If Apple wanted them delivered later in the day, they would have used a different shipping rate (overnight standard?). Believe it or not, Apple doesn't have that much clout with FedEx. Once the packages are in FedEx's hands, FedEx controls the delivery protocols, not Apple.

could be due to the extreme fog / visibility this morning. Here in KY it's horrible this morning.

Mine is delayed also (sent to Manhattan). I called Fedex and they told me that a delivery delay had been requested by "ACI Management." I don't have an ACI Management, but do you know what is sometimes called ACI?

Looks like they're trying to hold up delivery.

I have the same message it was delivered by 10:30am, but now it say by 5pm Delivery Exception. I think Apple wants it close to 6pm as possible.
My tracking number doesn't seem to work now o_O

A few more posts like this and we can call "Shenanigans"

:p

Maybe slowing delivery for locations in close proximity to Apple retail stores....Nothing else to do right now except speculate....
