We have all been there. You order something from Apple, and then you compulsively check Apple's status page to
see where your order is (Am I the only one that things Apple's orders take awhile to 'assemble'?). Finally, your Mac is
shipped and now you compulsively check FedEx to see where the heck your Mac is ('On the truck?! Why the heck has it
been on the truck for 2 days?!').
Mike Pointek has whipped up the Apple Order Status widget to help with the first part of this Mac Ritual. Instead of visiting Apple's website you can just pop into Dashboard for an hourly (you can pick the update interval) status report.
