Typhoon to Blame for iBook Delays

There was a typhoon that killed at least 36 people near Taiwan last week. My TiBook has been in for repair for three weeks now (VERY unusual for Apple, repairs being usually a three day process), and this was reported to me to be the reason for the delay.

It is gone now, but shipping channels are backed up as a result. When complaining about low iBook stock, please take this (and especially the lost lives…I’m told 10+ Apple factory workers are among the dead) into account.
