    iPad arriving early
    Sharing my excitement over the fact that my iPad is scheduled to arrive on Thursday (three days!) instead of next Wednesday, which is what Apple had estimated--after pushing the delivery back a day.

    I can't wait for that thing to arrive; the only problem is dragging myself to work instead of playing with my new toy

    Awesome" you are going to love your new device. I agree, it is going to be difficult to go to work knowing your iPad is waiting.

    I actually don't have to work until four, so it's more likely that the problem will be tearing myself away from it. The same thing happened with my Macbook Pro; my first day of work I went to my house on break, saw that it was there, and then had to go back up for a few hours.

    I think the parts I'm most excited for are:

    Portability
    Reading web pages
    Taking notes
    OmniFocus

    And all of the delightful games.

    I recommend Zite, it is an awesome app that lets you "build" a magazine based on your interests, I use it everyday.

    My iPad was ordered on April 7th. It's still listed as being in EPZ China and UPS or whoever is saying 'the service selected is not available' blah, blah blah; the important thing is that the delivery estimate hasn't slipped yet.

    Also ordered the sleeve and stylus with two day shipping (Amazon Prime seriously makes a difference, gotta love being a student). Essentially, everything should be here on Thursday and I'm stoked.

    I've heard about Zite; I'll definitely look into it.

    Update: apparently it's left China, but delivery date has become 'unknown'.

    Balls.

    UPS driver accidentally stepped on it, crushed it and is just waiting to report it.

    That's mean, Bob, just plain mean!

    FWIW it was probably a FEDEX driver since everything I've gotten from Apple recently has come FEDEX. Though, I guess that could vary by location.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    It says it's shipping through UPS, which I found odd; I'm pretty sure that my MBP (and the free iPod that arrived before it) were shipped by FedEx.

    It's getting kinda frustrating that all I'm getting is 'will be delivered by the displayed delivery date' when there ISN'T one displayed. And I guess UPS is having troubles because of a thunderstorm in Kentucky?

    Like I said; balls.
