    because they're shipping more than just your iPod. It'd be a lot less efficient if they grabbed just your iPod and then shipped that specifically to you from Alaska, rather than moving everything in bulk even if it over shoots you.

    FedEx has a major hub in Indianapolis, so many shipments pass through in one way or another.

    haha even though Alaska is a little closer to Arizona that it is to Indianapolis, its really is a heck of a long way away from Arizona. its West of Canada, near East Russia.
