Ordered the Ipad Mini 16 GB Black Cellular with Verizon (ships mid November) as I had heard you can use it as a Hot Spot from Verizon! Anybody know if this is true? Picked Verizon as supposedly the coverage will be a little better, and the $5.00 difference of like ATT 250 GB for $15.00 and Verizon's 2 GB ( i think) for $20.00 seemed like a good deal, but don't know as this is the first iPad with cellular!

Also just picked up a brand new MacBook Air last Friday ( It's Super Sweet) to go with the iPad mini and the 3rd generation iPad 16 GB WiFi! I have to say I think I am going to use the Mini most of the time. Be we will see :)

That does not sound good. I had a delay on the smart cover due to Hurricane Sandy but it got delivered Wednesday instead of Tuesday. It could possibly be a mechanical failure at the distribution center.

called UPS again
since Apple couldn't tell me anything and blamed it in Sandy (which is not the reason)
They transfered my call a few places and last person I talked too said a Trailer was broken down but she was told those packages will be there today ?

I'd be like, "honey do you want me to wait for you so we can open this together or shall I go ahead and charge it up for you so it'll be all ready for you when you get home?";)

I missed the UPS man! He is in my building everyday when I get home from work (between 4 and 5), but of course today he was here at 11:44AM. Bummer. Second attempt won't be until Monday. I'll probably be at work again. I won't be able to get to the Apple store until tomorrow night at the earliest, and by then who knows what they'll have left?!?

So 10 min. after posting this I received a call from UPS about how I could come pick it up! Talk about awesome customer service. I went and got it, met some friends for dinner, and just got home. Time to bust into this!
