Not that I've managed to see touch or hear it yet. It's in Phoenix and I'm in Dallas. It was quite exciting to track the package's progress via the UPS tracking website especially today when it was scanned out 'for delivery' at 8 AM Dallas time. I reckon by noon I was checking that damn webpage every five minutes! Hey, this is a big moment for me; my first ever portable MP3 player, with storage beyond the dreams of avarice. Let me enjoy it! :-)
At 3:58 PM Dallas time it was noted as having been delivered! Maybe a minute later my wife emailed me to say it'd just been delivered. How do they do that? Surely they don't have a satellite link back to home base to record each delivery in something passably close to real time?
I got quite a laugh from the tracking page after it had been delivered. Here's an extract.

Location is MET CUST WOM? What on earth does that mean? I reckon it means the delivery guy cussed my WOM(an) out. If I'm right the only thing I have to say is that he's one cheeky bastard! :-)
