Tightened U.S. Customs Delayed Incoming International Packages Affecting Ebay

I am not too happy to know this changes although I know this change is for security purposes. This tightened U.S. customs turned off Ebay customers from buying products outside the country. It used to that I receive my items within 10 to 14 days but now it has reached more than a month. I thought it was due to the Holiday rush but when I checked one of the tracking links from one of my favorite sellers reply, I saw the notice regarding the tightened customs stating :

Important Notice: Got notice from the US customs that all packets (from all countries) to US will be subject to stricter screening. Postage time to the US will be about 3-7days delayed due to tightened customs control and screening. 
 As for me, buying generic products in Hong Kong really saves
 money. Of course the Ebay sellers are not going to tell people how much delay it would take , the notice says 3-7 days but based on my 3 orders already I had 3-4 weeks delay........ it would definitely change the way I would search product from now on. Read More......

Thank You

I am finally back from a long break....I've done some traveling to Canada and some skiing to few places and with the Holidays I just gotten real busy catching up with everything. Now am back again blogging. Whew! it is nice to be back home.
During all my travels, I hardly use my netbook at all. I finally got me the Iphone 4 and it really do the things I need it for. When I was in the airport I manage to do some online games, check facebook, email and even video call using skype or yahoo messenger all the way inside the airplane hehehe how cool is that huh, and I love the camera and lots of free cool apps to download. I actually learned few tricks on sharing paid apps from one iphone to ipod or to my girlfriend who is in Canada . This I will be sharing the info in my future posts. Hope everyone had a great Holidays.. Read More......
