Modern logistics never cease to amaze me. There has been quite a bit of eBay shopping going on in this house recently, and the results march in through the front gate only a couple of days later. But the big brands, especially those bought through Amazon, are even quicker. I finally succumbed to buying a digital SLR one afternoon this week, and it was delivered the next morning at 9am! The iPhone was the same; ordered on line from my Spanish hotel when my N95 packed up and delivered the morning after arriving home. And that's not to mention the music heard on iTunes one moment and bought and downloaded the next.
