April Fools', or does iPad have a time-travel app?

Some people tracking their iPad shipments might see them travel back in time a little.

For some people, it is clear Christmas is coming tomorrow. Like many eager children awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus, many soon-to-be iPad owners are regularly tracking their shipments to see where they are and when they will arrive. One CNET reader, Don Dennis, found that his iPad seems to have gained an uncanny capability to travel back in time.

The iPad started its journey somewhere in Shenzhen, China, on the March 30 and departed at 4:43 a.m. on April 2, only to arrive in the U.S. back on April 1. Perhaps Apple failed to mention on the box that the iPad comes with a Stephen Hawking's "Singularity" wormhole-generating app.

Unfortunately, Apple (or air freight carriers, for that matter) have not mastered the art of time travel and the shipment only crossed the international time barrier; however, one can still dream.
