I ordered my Apple iPod nano from Apple Store which had stated that its Estimated Shipping is within 24 hrs. So, I was in the thought that I will receive my iPod in a day. But now its 3 days since I ordered my iPod, its yet to arrive! Yell

So, what does this Estimated Ship within 24 hrs mean?



In this very small country, it is taking more than 3 days to arrive from Auckland to Dunedin - WTF!!! Yell

It doesn't come from Auckland. It comes from Sydney. "shipping" means "leaving the warehouse" it doesn't mean "arriving at your door step".

YMMV. I bought a Mac mini on Thursday 12pm and had it at home in Wellington on Friday at 1pm.

Well there you go - quite quick, coming all the way from China just for you!

It arrived here and cleared customs. There is no delivery on Saturday so it should be here on Monday.

Quite good time I think. You could always have walked to a DSE and got one there though.

Apple Online Store gives you Free Shipping for purchase more than $100 and I had to pay extra only for the Gift Box which was $7 (including GST)

The could make it a bit clearer, often when people buy stuff they're slightly influenced by a little excitement and read things in a way that meets their expectations at the time, so yes I'd be going wow fantastic and waiting for the courier 24 hours later.

Thats pretty fast shipping from china though!

hmm in transit from auckland

better hope it flys down other options sound a bit slow

or go by super fast bullet train down to welly (yawn, yawn)

or truck down to welly (yawn)

and then in a big rubber dingy to picton (yawn)

 and then gets driven down to dunny (yawn)

So by the time you yawn three times it'll be there please note yawns take 12-24 hours batteries not included

Yes, he knows it is Dunedin. Note he listed the worst case scenario transport options to Dunedin, by truck through Wellington, via ferry to Picton:


... down to welly (yawn)

and then in a big rubber dingy to picton (yawn)

and then gets driven down to dunny (yawn)



Note the *and*. Boolean logic applies.
