Felt strange the first time to know that my iPhone was basically shipped from factory in China straight to me with no stop offs.


interesting. got my MBA shipment confirmation early this morning, scheduled delivery is this friday

yup! im sure it might even arrive on thursday :P was pretty amazed how that shipping is free too. I'm sure it costs a lot to ship from china using fedex.


Are you guys residing in Trinidad and using freight forwarders to get items? I tried ordering once via Apple online and my order was cancelled because they said my address was marked as a freight forwarder (I use the Transexpress skybox service)

I don't understand "register my business with them". You are an authorized Apple dealer then?

Also you used Transexpress recently to order Apple items and got thru ? I had this problem of cancelled orders back in 2009/2010.

Buy off Amazon?
Also helps avoid sales tax.

That's what I end up doing nowadays. It's just that Amazon doesn't seem to have an Retina MBP in stock so not sure how long I'll have to wait on them and I want one by mid July.

That means you ordering the non retina? If that's so you really should order with 4GB off amazon and upgrade the ram yourself as it works out cheaper.

iPad guys, came across an app called songza today.

Basically it's preselected playlists set to your choice (wake up playlist, cooking playlist etc) been using this whole day, for a free app it's awesome!


If you are like me and hate sitting behind iTunes to make a playlist and just want something to press play, try this app. You need wifi however since you are basically streaming.

You basically pay taxes cuz Apple sells through brick and mortar stores vs Amazon which has no physical store to sell out of.

well the reason why I ask is because this page doesn't show firstchoicett as a registered Apple reseller.
