Slow as molasses

I just got word this morning that the IPad 2 will not be shipping for a little while; it now appears that it will take 35 days from order to delivery, and since it took several days for the order to be placed after I requested it, it's looking like a total of 8 weeks from start to finish.
It's the sort of service I used to expect in the pre-internet days: nowadays I've been spoiled by quick deliveries, and am typically dismayed when a delivery is going to take more than three or four days. 

Yours, thanking Apple for reminding me that patience, while wearing thin, is still a virtue,
