    I don't quite understand what is going on here. It was suppose to be delivered by this Thursday.
    Or did I just miss the weekend cutoff and should it be in anchorage tonight? I'm a bit worried ;)

    Looks a little strange - I have also experienced "weird" shipping notes. But always received my product on time. It can easily still get to you by Thursday.

    Normal. There are delays with updating that information. Apple ships it directly from china, and you will get it on time.

    That's what I figured. I always have the worst shipping experiences. My packages always end up at my neighbors houses. I don't know how it happens lol. So I was just being cautious of the situation going on here.

    Actually that looks perfectly normal. What is usually done is Apple packs pallets with ordered items. The pallet goes air to one of like 3 or 4 airports in the US where the pallet gets broken down and delivered like normal.

    Depending on where you live, it's usually one or 2 days delivery from when it hits the distribution airport.

    Apple gets a discount because Fedex isn't handling individual boxes for the Air portion of the delivery. The funny thing is, if I order something and it ships from the factory in China or Taiwan, it often gets to me quicker than ground shipment from California would.
