“Held up in customs in Alaska”
PowerPage reader Douglas J. McLaughlin ordered a tangerine iBook on July 22nd and has been waiting ever since, like many other people who have ordered iBooks. Every time he called Apple he was told it would be “another two weeks” before it would ship, but instead of getting mad at the slipping shipping schedule, he has been waiting patiently and checking up on his order “every two weeks (on Fridays).”
You can take a look at the full text of his letter.
The latest scoop is that fifteen airplane-loads of iBooks have shipped via FedEx out of Taiwan and are awaiting customs clearance before being shipped to locations in the US. For many people waiting for their iBooks, the wait may soon be over.
