Apple Stores have been sold out of most iPad models for the past ten days or so. So I ordered one online - and just yesterday got an e-mail notifying me it had shipped, along with a link to Fedex’ tracking service.
If you combine Fedex’ package tracking system, a little bit of intuition and knowledge of how their system operates, and Flight Aware, you can actually watch your package move around the globe. (Note: All Fedex freight coming from APAC comes into Anchorage Ted Stevens Intl. - which for some reason has the airport code PANC (“panic”!") - where it clears customs before being sent on to Memphis for distribution to FedEx regional hubs.
Don’t know if this phenomenon has been commented on previously - but this is just another example of how incredible I find modern technology.
I watch the FE’s line up daily coming into KIND 2330 local…hopefully 23L so they come over the house.
Since I know where my coolers are coming from I have a good idea the flight based on scans.
BTW, FE Insight tracking blows away UPS QuantumView in ease of use.
Access, format, etc. IF someone were to integrate per OP…
