Hey Apple, thanks and sorry about the whining!

Well, I posted up this bit of foolishness grousing about my undelivered iPad mini, and probably by pure coincidence get the email shown above just a few hours later from the Apple Store, of course... Sheesh! Now I have to eat a big hearty helping of crow, and send Apple an apology. I said I would, and so I am. Thanks Apple Store, and I am sincerely sorry I doubted your original delivery estimate (Nov 2, 2012), and cast any dispersions on your distribution methods during what is probably a challenging new product delivery period. If all goes as planned, I should be receiving my unit tomorrow, so crow suitably and dutifully eaten! Not bad, actually...kind of like chicken, but a bit on the gamey side... ;)
