I ordered my ipod Tuesday about noon. Used the regular free shiiping & figured I would get it Monday. Then I saw Fed Ex tracking said Friday. This AM (Thur) there is a knock at my door..........It was the Ipod! I even had it engraved. I am impressed. So glad I was still home, I was getting ready to leave for a while. Thanks to everyone for the help on here about apps & things. Last night I stayed up & downloaded some purchased & some free apps with your recommendations. The are synching to my ipod on another computer now. Then I am off to the Apple local store to see what they have in cases. I picked up an iclear from Best Buy but not sure I like it.
