iPhone and UPS: A Great Combination

Just before 10:00 Arizona time this morning, the doorbell rang to announce a much-anticipated delivery. The friendly UPS delivery guy dropped off my new iPhone 3GS that I ordered last week!  So, instead of standing in line at the Apple store, I now have the coveted prize in my hot little hands.

I was very impressed with the series of emails from Apple keeping me updated on the progress of my order and with the UPS tracking system showing daily progress of my package from Shenzen, China to Mesa, AZ, via Hong Kong, Alaska and Kentucky, including a purposeful delay in Louisville so it wouldn't arrive too soon.  I won't presume to understand the logic in that seemingly circuitous routing, but I find it fascinating that worldwide logistics works so smoothly over such wide distances in such huge volumes.

Next step ... crank up the phone!

Discovering Identity was founded on blogs.sun.com in May 2005 as a means of documenting my exploration of the field of Identity and Access Management. In February, 2010, I switched to hosting the blog at DiscoveringIdentity.com. In March 2012, I began posting Oracle-related information in both places.
