    So, of course, I am due to be leaving town the exact day my iPad should arrive. I know I can reroute the package via http://abs.apple.com/cst/, but is this risky? Has anyone done it? I fear fedex losing it and then I am stuck waiting 5 weeks for my iPad.

    Shouldn't hurt, but I don't think there is an implicit guarantee that it can be re-routed.

    and does anyone know how this works? Does it just BEEP at the next scan and then they put it on a different aircraft? What if the package is in your local distrib center?

    If people did this couldn't they get around paying tax? Ship it to someone you know in a sales tax free state, then re-route the shipment back to your home state. I know this is tax evasion, but it just seems like something that would be alot hard to do then enter your old and new shipping address. I feel like Apple or the Courier could get in trouble for this.

    Apple will probably adjust the tax charge and refund/charge you accordingly. Same thing like if you edit your listing on eBay.
