    ahhh suck... lol. KY feels like it's not even connected to the rest of the US sometimes. Hard to find tech enthusiasts here.

    Are you saying high tech in Kentucky is an Etch-A-Sketch? :)

    Oh, wait. That's made by Ohio Art. They probably don't want to import technology.

    We have Amish using cell phones in Pennsylvania. I guess we're way ahead of the tech curve. Now, if I see an Amish person using an iPad I'll know we've hit the big time.

    They opened up your iPad (in the guise of clearing customs, of course) and they're playing with it :eek:

    They will all go to exception for customers and the fact that they are held for a specifc day.

    Check the iPhone 3g threads from last year.

    Lots of TUAW readers have written in today, worried about their iPad deliveries. Since they received shipment notices, many folks have been tracking their progress, and are now seeing messages like:

    UPS INTERNAL ACTIVITY.
    SHIPMENT IS HELD TO VERIFY COMMODITY DESCRIPTION WITH THE CUSTOMER FOR CORRECT CLASSIFICATION
    "Your package has experienced an exception"
    If you received one of these notices, you are not alone. Apple has taken similar measures in the past to make sure that deliveries do not arrive before the official release date. In fact, Boy Genius Reportsuggests that Apple is purposefully withholding clearance papers for the iPads to make sure that they are not delivered early.

    As anxious as these next few days of waiting will be, and as nerve-racking as it is when this is your iPad, I fully expect that 99.99% of the iPads scheduled for delivery on Saturday will be delivered on Saturday.

    We've also heard directly from someone who works "for a certain shipping company" who reports that they will have double the number of drivers out in their particular delivery area on Saturday, due to the increased traffic. I would expect that other areas would see similar increases. Nobody who works for a shipping company wants to have to go back to Apple and explain why they couldn't meet delivery needs.

    That being said, the same source does not expect exceptions to be made for areas without Saturday delivery, so you may have to wait until Monday for your iPad to be delivered. Don't panic -- we're sure UPS will do everything it can to get your iPad to you on time. If you're not sure about the delivery policy in your area, you may want to contact UPS to verify.

    So I paid for shipping for nothing?

    So I prepaid for the device and paid for shipping and now I won't get my ipad til Monday when I could have just gone to the store and picked it up? Why would apple use a shipper who doesn't deliver on Saturdays and then hold up the shipment until Saturday? That sucks.

    You're all lucky the iPad was made by Apple.
    Had this been a Microsoft product the exception would have been fatal. :D
