Readers are reporting shipping delays (by FedEx) in shipments of their 12-inch PowerBooks and AirPort Extreme Cards, which Apple began shipping earlier this week (and some readers have located at local , including Townson, MD. ). One reader provided some details on the delay which apparently is not related to the Chinese New Year (today):
"I got an email from apple stating that my shipment went out today for BTO Powerbook 12" CD DVDR Airport Extreme! Anyway when I checked the tracking number it was sent to Indianapolis Indiana, not UT where I live, I called Fed-Ex [and] I asked speak w/ the person in charge of the shipment, she gave me some interesting details, the chinese new year will not change anything about the status of the shipment, this shipment affects 636 people, (that is how many items are in it) once it gets to Indianapolis Indiana then it will take about 2 days to get to the customers whose names are on the individual parcels.""
