I ordered my iPod from Apple.ca about 2 weeks ago and selected standard, free shipping. Apple upgraded my shipping to overnight for free, and I received my iPod in 2 days from order date... I was sooooooo stoked.
I ordered mine (40GB) this afternoon. I had a 10% off code for Target.com, and they actually have them in stock, but for only $3 more, I got one from the Apple Store with a student discount, and the free engraving.
Mine's gonna say
"For those about to rock...
We salute you!"
