    Mine is still there. Two scans almost exactly 24 hours apart.
    Second scan was about an hour ago. Hope it means it is getting
    set up for a flight.

    Mine too.... what the heck?!!!
    It's alreday been past the entire Monday work day in Hong Kong.... this way I don't see the iPad making the 3/23 Estimated arrival date.

    It's bad enough that :apple: has acted like a complete tease about this whole deal; what's up with FedEx (the supposed king of Intl Logistics)?!!!

    4 days in Lantau.

    Ordered at 12:45 am PST. It spent 4 days in PST status, and now it has sat in Lantau for 4 days.

    Gotta love this "fast free shipping" from Apple.

    That's the date on mine as well.... what does that mean?!!
    How is it in transit to the location where it currently is??!!! :mad:

    I actually don't care if it arrives a day later, but what's the point of a package saitting on some island for 4 days and stupid updates like that?

    And is the arrival date is still correct, then did FedEx have it already planned to sit on these packages for 4+ days in Kong Kong? I thought HK warehousing was prohibitively expensive.... what kind of efficiency is that?

    Any logistics MBAs out there?

    I'm both frustrated and amused at this nonsense! :p

    I catually wanted to pay for express shipping.... but thanks :apple: for force-feeding this pile inefficiency to us!

    Good thing I have no intentions to upgrade to Phone 5 any time soon.... this marketing "triumph" just can NOT be good for Jobs & co in the long run.....

    Sorry :apple: I'm gonna think twice about being excited about your product launches in the future.

    Oh yeah... ordered at 5:00 AM EST (1:00 AM PST) on launch day.... boooo!!!

    I would have gladly paid for express shipping. I always do when I buy a high priced item.
