Apple crashed FedEx

A note on the FedEx tracking website notes that “Package deliveries are proceeding as normal, however tracking updates are temporarily being delayed. Please try back later.” Why? Because you people keep refreshing the tracking site, that’s why!

Don’t worry, though. Your package won’t end up on a desert island with Tom Hanks. Shipments are going through just fine.

Reader Willard spotted the error when he was trying to track is iP4 to Ontario, CA. He writes:

The fed ex website is reporting its tracking is not updating, im guessing due to an abundance of people checking their iphone pre order status since this morning mine said it was in ontario, ca and i already received it at my door in bakersfield, ca

Anyone else seeing tracking failures?
