My daughter bought an Ipod. She found the lowest price on the Apple website and ordered it late on a Saturday afternoon–I don't know, sometime after four pm. Engraved with her name and address, no less. Free shipping, too.
Within an hour she got a confirmation email saying her order had been shipped. I told her it was probably an automated reply.
It got to my door at 11 am Tuesday morning.
Granted, 2 American business days translates to like 9 slave labor days in China.
But still. It was American labor that shipped it through Alaska, Pennsylvania (no idea why it had to go there) then back up to Washington state and to my door in less than 24 hours. JC Penney, Sears, Target, Walmart.com–are you listening?
