    Egadget website has received an internal memo from Apple about a new option for existing customers that order a "New Iphone" can now enable the popular Find My Iphone app. This will allow users to track their phone as it travels via Fedex from China across the ocean and down the street. Users will be able to see where it is located in the Fedex system down to the actual building. They will then be able to track the truck as it moves across town and eventually arrives at your front door.



    (okay...just a rumor, er, joke... but it is possible for the real fanatics to want this)

    The fact that I constantly check tracking info whenever I have something shipped to me... This would actually be nice.

    The main reason I do not like internet shopping: waiting for my products to arrive.

    And it is the worst when someone has to sign for the package. Cuz I work, and I am never home to be there in order to sign for it.

    I changed my billing address on one of my credit cards to my parents house because I am sure Apple required a signature when the iPhone is delivered. And I can make sure one of them is home when it is supposed to arrive.

    I'd prefer my phone arrive with ~80-90% battery life than 0%. It would be nice to already link it to your Apple account with your order. Google, Android did that with my Nexus 7.

    Wow.. so they'll be turning on the iPhone from China all the way to US?
    Besides, I thought Find my iPhone uses data?

    Plus they would need to have some sort of cellular data service.

    Plus it would be a security problem. People would go out and try to hunt down the delivery driver to get it early.
