At this point am I correct in that the one person from all of the forums who has received theirs is also the same person who already had one as a beta-tester?
Today they tweeted:
"We've actually started a few shipments but we want to verify they make it and there are no problems with the shipping service."
This shipping service they are testing... The USPS? I think they've been delivering mail since 1775. I hope they figure out how to get these boxes to people.

This makes it sound like they are still in a very limited roll-out. But then they say:[/FONT]
"Orders are being sent by batches, should be done in less than a week." Does that mean that they're going from sending a few to test that the shipping works, to having ALL orders fulfilled in the span of a week? Epic run-around.

I know others have received theirs, but yes for our forum I have received a prototype and final production unit.
As for shipping testing. I’m not 100% sure as I am not privy to that, but what I can tell you is that it’s not manufactured in the US, so when they say shipping testing I suspect they’re talking about the exchange in customs and then into final delivery. Mine got hung up at customs, so that’s likely something they’re trying to deal with.
I’ve seen all of the DIY options as well as the competitive products. I even did a DIY first. I promise this is worth the wait!
As a funny aside that is completely unrelated. USPS messes up my mail on a nearly daily basis. You could have fooled me that they’re been in the game so long
