iPhone 3G S: The S is for speedy delivery

The "S" in the name of the new iPhone 3G S stands for speed, both in the phone itself and how it's being delivered to some customers.

The "S" in the name of the new iPhone 3G S stands for speed, both in the phone itself and how it's being delivered to some customers.

Customers who ordered their phones direct from Apple's online store have begun receiving an e-mailed "Shipping Notification" from Apple. Included is a UPS tracking number that shows, in at least some cases, delivery as early as tomorrow or Thursday.

The official introduction of the newest iPhone is set for 8 A.M. Friday in Apple's U.S. retail stores.

Like many Apple products, the iPhone GS is being shipped directly to customers from a facility in the coastal boomtown of Shenzhen, China (Pop. 8.6 million). Three-day global delivery isn't one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but for anxious iPhone customers, for the next day or two it probably comes close.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
