I decided not to pre-sign for the iPad and have it sit on my doorstep for the whole day while I am at work..so I let the delivery exception happen and then called them up as I was leaving work to have them keep it at the local UPS facility which is about 10 mins from my house..when the driver returned around 7:30, they took it off the truck and kept it aside..

Loaded it with some apps and my wife has already been hogging it..

I guess it could be a Fedex/UPS thing (or whoever ships it). Seems like such an odd place to have a hub though.

We (FedEx Express) jave an incredibly large international hub in Anchorage. We've just added Boeing 777's to the fleet just for far east flights.

It's quicker because when flying towards the top/bottom of the globe, the travel distance is shorter. When I flew to Australia, from LAX, we flew north, then arched south towards Australia. We didn't fly over Hawaii, even though it's a on the way on a straight line flight.

Like it so far a lot. Only issue so far is Safari here on Mac Forums stuck in iPhone mode! That is a known issue with the forums software they are working on. So I will have to like Bobtomay, use Atomic Browser especially to do the Moderator commands.

Congrats on the new toy D.

Should be able to use Safari in the forum without it being in the mobile version on the iPad now.

But, Atomic browser is nice having the tabs instead of the Safari method.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Congrats on getting your iPad. You must be in "hog heaven" with that nice new "modern" piece of Apple hardware!!!

Not sure if you saw a thread I started a month or two ago...it regarded "battery life degradation" in the iPad 1.0's...one year later. Almost everyone replying said that their runtime on a full battery charge was still right around 10 hours (the amount claimed by Apple). So considering that these things run on battery power a large proportion of the time (a lot of recharging of the battery...thus a lot of battery cycles)...that's pretty darn good 1 year later.

- Nick

p.s. Here's the link for the thread in case you're interested in reading it.

I didn't bother updating my iPad since there wasn't really any point to. I did update my iPhone though, but haven't had any issues.
