iPad has shipped...from China!

I was super surprised to see a shipment email from Apple this morning that the iPad is on its way! I looked up the tracking and it's shipping from China, same as my Macbook Pro from a while back. Is is possible this will get here before the Saturday release? I doubt it. Pretty sure all deliveries will be held for Saturday, just as a Harry Potter book or anything like it is locked up pre-official release.

Great timing

I sold off my DSi this past friday since I barely use it and would probably get the DSi XL somewhere down the road, but the announcement of the 3DS makes my decision seem prescient.

Oh and the iPad is only a week and half away!

5:30AM. iPad. Crazy.

The Apple iPad was offered for pre-order at 5:30AM Pacific time today. I was at my computer hitting refresh on the Apple store and bought one. Then I went back to sleep. I feel silly, but I didn’t even need my alarm as I woke up several times during the night. Of course all that was unnecessary since several hours later it is still available for order.

On a related note, I got to play around more with the DSi XL today. For games like Metroid Pinball, the larger screen is really great. For most others it wasn’t quite as dramatic. I definitely won’t be picking one of these up anytime soon or perhaps at all unless someone starts a very good trade-in program for my current DSi.
