    Just noted something: On the Canadian Apple Online Store, ship times now reflect how long before a product leaves Apple, such as "Leaves Apple: 1-3 business days"

    http://store.apple.com/ca/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_air?mco=MTM3NjY1OTU

    However, on the American Store, the old "Ships: 1-3 business days" is still up.

    I think this is a welcome improvement as a lot of the time, people would think that the time shown was how long it would take to arrive at their house. Weird how it's only on the Canadian site though...

    That must be a Canadian thing. I can't imagine how an American would misread that. No insult intended, I just mean things/phrases have different meanings in different places.

    Sorry, but I know lots of people who have misunderstood that. Say what you want about the average intelligence in this country, but it's been a common source of irritation.

    Fair 'nuff. "Leaves Apple" sounds nicer anyway.
