    Am getting the iPad delivered to work on launch day. I am just wondering how it is will be packaged. Anyone bought stuff from Apple UK and got any ideas how obvious it will be what the package is? :)

    I've bought software and accessories online from Apple in the past. I recall white packaging for my shipments but no logos or any markings that indicate the package is from Apple.

    Yep just a small-mid sized box with your address on, inside is the goodies :cool: delivered by an all black short wearing guy who doesn't care where he parks. UPS :cool:

    As long as I get mine on the 28th, I don't care if it comes wrapped in bog roll.

    You might care if it's used bog roll, as you grapple to get in the box and get elbow deep in poo. But, I take the point :D

    Courier is UPS.

    Shipping box is plain brown with a white address label on the outside, and the label doesn't even say "Apple", but rather their distribution centre name. Basically, nobody will know what is in it.

    Short guy ? Weird thing - every time I've had stuff delivered by UPS it's a very very tall man. Not the same man as I've lived all over the country (unless they are clones, freaky), but wherever I've been the UPS couriers have always been extremely tall.
    Perhaps UPS know I like tall guys bearing tech goodies and are being nice to me. ;)


    Ha ha - just thought, do you mean the guy wears shorts ? lol. See how someone with a tall fixation can get the wrong end of the stick ? lol.
