    That means you need to reduce your effort by 13% and refuse to work any extra hours because the company cannot afford it.

    Wonder if it has to do with people using Fedex when ordering from Ebay, It used to be strickly UPS or USPS.

    That may be part of it but the bulk of the bump is from SmartPost.

    UPS used to have an exclusive with paypal for creating labels. Not sure when the monopoly on that ended.

    ^^^ Yup.
    And now they're warning us about the iPad mini (and 4 I guess) that's gonna hit us hard. (yeah, right)
    Who would be stupid enough to buy that iPad mini? It's barely any smaller than the (useless) full sized iPad.

    I thought the iPad mini was out before the iPad...they called it the iPhone.

    Except for the lack of Flash, my iPad is great for surfing the 'net. Best screen on the market too.

    Those Apple people are like Parrotheads....they will believe it and go sit in line for a week to get it....then they realize it wasn't true. I like to stay current with my technology just like the next guy, but the Appleites go way too far for me.

    Maybe I should be like "Oh, you got an Iphone 5?..... Really? 'Cause you know the Galaxy S III blows the doors off it. Yeah, I deliver like 20 S III to every 1 Iphone".
