My iPad

Looks like I will be waiting longer for my iPad. So much for promises of delivery on April 3rd as it is delayed in Shenzhen,China. UPS tracking status shows "Exception" which means "THE SERVICE SELECTED IS NOT AVAILABLE TO THE DESTINATION ADDRESS / DOWNGRADED, FORWARDED TO CONSIGNEE, SELECTED SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE". UPS has deliverd to my home address many times, not sure how this will end up.

Kodak Zi8
