    Good for you. I did the same thing and we will all celebrate on Friday together (can you imagine the cyberparty we have here?)

    My alu iMac did a tour of N. America before finally arriving in Vancouver, Canada...it took 13 days!

    Shanghai -> Memphis -> SF -> Toronto-> Winnipeg -> Vancouver... :)

    EWWW~ Was that the estimated due date or was it just that late?
    At first I was looking at the shipped from "CN" and was thinking connecticut...But I guess there is no Shanghai other than China...LOL!!!

    I think iMac tends to have a longer 'traveling' period.

    This is actually the first time I order a 'small' item from the Store (I got all my iPods at the store)....so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    I ordered in the UK today at lunchtime, just got shipping notification that it should arrive tomorrow, so I guess the UK has stock in the UK :)

    My Apple products usually go from Shanghai to Anchorage, AK, to Memphis to Anchorage to me. My Touch should be here tomorrow since I paid for next-day shipping. 32GB of pure awesomeness.

    Mine actually came from Cordova, California straight to Alaska. Not from Shanghai like they usually do. On the truck for delivery today.

    That Stinks. You all are getting yours faster than I am, despite the fact that I paid for 2nd days expedite and orderered earlier. That stinks. I ordered on 09/09/08 at aprox 2pm PST and per fed ex it will not be here until Monday before noon.

    Just came. It's absolutely gorgeous. Installing apps and loading music right now. This is definitely a step up from my 15GB iPod Photo. It was a long wait. Here's a pic. 32GB and 6 hours of video battery life just in time for my trip to Seattle/Spokane.

    I ordered my like 10 min ago and I didn't want to pay extra so i got the free ground shipping.

    Wonder which one has less carbon footprint :rolleyes: but really I can't wait, this is my first ipod purchase ever :D
