Sep 13, 2007, 05:27 PM
I had the same feeling, so I didn't pre-order. Plus, I wanted to see some reviews from people who got it before I went and got it. Plus, I'm impatient as hell, and can't stand it when my order is shipped, but I could have just gone to a store and gotten it. :D

i paid $425 for this ipod, and i want mine NOW. this is complete bullcrap that people can just go out and buy these 10 at a time, while us pre-order people have to sit and watch while people post freaking pictures of their great new ipods.

i even talked to an apple rep at the online store, the guy was being a smartass! i asked him why apple was selling the ipod touch at apple stores, but pre-orders weren't shipping until the 28th of september. he replied with, and i quote,"Well, that's what the Apple store does. It sells Apple products." WHAT THE HELL?!

so anyways, as many people, i am quite miffed at apple for doing this, and just thought i'd voice my anger about it.

sucks, too, i'm a college student and i don't have a car, so even if i wanted to, i couldn't run out to the nearest apple store and get myself an ipod touch. boo, apple, for once, you SUCK.

I'm sure you will get it within a week or so. Does it anger you that much you get it a few days after others do? LOL. Afterall, you get free shipping and you get that extra convenience of getting it shipped to your mailbox. Not standing on any side, but Apple retail stores need to pay their rents and dues.

You sound like the rich guy who's like here's my money, now get over here NOW!! Just cause you have some money doesn't make you more powerful. You were okay with the Sept. 28th date when you ordered so don't complain.

So what if it's like the best iPod ever, so what if your drooling over it with its striking finishes, smooth touch, clear videos, captivating sounds...

GOD DAMN IT! WHERE'S MY iPOD TOUCH APPLE! :p

Think about it though guys, it might be a blessing in disguise for the online order people. We get the store buyers to buy the iPod touch, test it for any faults, flaws, bugs etc. Then we know that what we are paying for is all good!

Having said that I still want my order now. In a world where I can order a pizza and have it delivered before the cops can arrive, Apple can deliver on time!!

Anyways, my two cents.
Peace.

Here's a novel idea...

I was just thinking about how everyone wants to get the iPhone apps over to the iPod and such, and how everyone is complaining about how the iPhone still doesn't have the iTunes Music Store. Well...couldn't we just copy wifitunes.app (or whatever its called) onto our iPhone from the iPod after it's jailbroken??

Yeah...problem solved!! Although I would now expect the iPhone update within days--I hope!

I'm pissed off with this too. Not only did I PRE-order, but there doesn't seem to be any activity with regards to this in the UK, so not only does my PRE order not get honoured, but it looks like the UK customers are being shat on again. At least in America you have the iPhone choice and now the touch too, we have nothing. I put my cash up over a week ago, and have nothing. Am I happy? Am I ****.

Just got off the phone with Minneapolis Apple stores, 4 total including
the Mall of America store. Sounds like most stores got 10, 16GB
iPod Touchs. I would suspect the MOA store had more inventory as
that is a "flag ship" retail location.

My pre-order, Order Date: Sep 5, 2007 at 12:23 PM PDT, has
"Not yet shipped".... :)

So you are saying that your order was canceled? If so by who?

Remember:

"Designed by Apple in California"

Has your card been charged yet? If it hasn't been prepared for shipping, it hasn't cost you.

so not only does my PRE order not get honoured, but it looks like the UK customers are being shat on again.

At least in America you have the iPhone choice and now the touch too, we have nothing.

The whole idea of a pre-order isn't that you get it BEFORE the retail stores. It is to make sure you actually have an ipod assigned to you because once they hit the stores, there is absolutely no guarantee that you will get one because they will sell out so fast! I have mine on order and it won't get here until the end of the first week in October (wouldn't be surprised if it was later than that - depends on how quickly Apple Australia receive their stock). Apple stores here take orders so even if they did get ipods before Apple shipped their orders, they would get so few in numbers it would hardly cover their orders and they would have none to sell over the counter until November/December!!
Am I anxious and pissed off that it couldn't be sooner? Not really. Yeah, I'm excited about it arriving, but I have gone this long without an iPod touch - a few more weeks won't really make a difference! Like someone else said - think yourself lucky that you are a college student who can actually afford an ipod touch! Get some damn perspective!

Just got off the phone with an Apple Representative. She said that ALL online orders are on backorder, and that they SHOULD ship before the 28th. Even put me through to a retailer in Orlando, and they had about 30 of them in. Hmm, another day, more customers upset at Apple.:D:apple:

Sep 13, 2007, 07:40 PM
I was at the Apple store in Orlando today and they had some on display. Played with one for a good 20 minutes, and some guy said "is that the new iPhone?" Wanted to slap him in the face. Then thought... "I really want an iPhone... stupid calendar app..."

I digress... what you really want to know is if the wifi music store is up. I can tell you it is. Obviously didn't buy a song, but you can browse and search, and preview, etc.

Also noticed that in safari, the keyboard will only let you type in input fields, meaning, that posting a reply in macrumors will NOT work (at least, I'm guessing). I logged onto my gmail account and could type a "to" address and a "subject" but being that the "message body" is an html text box, and NOT a true "input" field, I could NOT type in the message body! Sucks, yeah? At least in GMail, you can change to a text only message format, and it lets you type in the "body" then (changed to a real text input box). Thought to myself, "wow that sucks.... man I really want an iPhone now..."

Any other questions? like i said, I played with it for a good 20-25 min. let me know.

I was at the Apple store in Orlando today and they had some on display. Played with one for a good 20 minutes, and some guy said "is that the new iPhone?" Wanted to slap him in the face. Then thought... "I really want an iPhone... stupid calendar app..."

I digress... what you really want to know is if the wifi music store is up. I can tell you it is. Obviously didn't buy a song, but you can browse and search, and preview, etc.

Also noticed that in safari, the keyboard will only let you type in input fields, meaning, that posting a reply in macrumors will NOT work (at least, I'm guessing). I logged onto my gmail account and could type a "to" address and a "subject" but being that the "message body" is an html text box, and NOT a true "input" field, I could NOT type in the message body! Sucks, yeah? At least in GMail, you can change to a text only message format, and it lets you type in the "body" then (changed to a real text input box). Thought to myself, "wow that sucks.... man I really want an iPhone now..."

Any other questions? like i said, I played with it for a good 20-25 min. let me know.

Which one in Orlando? The Mall At Millenia or the Florida Mall?

That no matter what Apples does, there are people bitching about THEIR NEEDS and that Apple screwed up again!

Guess what folks you need a LIFE!

And you do not have to buy ANYTHING from Apple or anyone else. No one has forced you to pre-order ANYTHING! If you live near an Apple store why would you pre-order anyway????

It was truly a bizzare experience. Though, I've never tried GMail or anything on the iPhone, so I'm not sure if that was a common experience or not. If not, it almost feels like Apple really IS trying to hold back the features of the iPhone. Problem is that people like me really don't want to switch to AT&T, but also don't really want to sit there and hack the iPhone a whole lot....

Alright, I'm done sulking...

So you are saying that your order was canceled? If so by who?

Remember:

"Designed by Apple in California"

Has your card been charged yet? If it hasn't been prepared for shipping, it hasn't cost you.

My order hasn't been cancelled, but that isn't really the point. I ordered on the day it was annouced, specifically to garuntee that I would get one as soon as they were available, that they wouldn't sell out.
It's like apple are saying "right, he's pre-ordered and we have his card details, that sale is safe, lets concerntrate on getting more sales in before actually sending his out, it makes our sales figures look better."

and who gives a crap where it was designed, they're all made in China anyway.

Look people, I am sick of this whining from people who preordered it. I mean lets be honest, you might have to wait a few extra days. Apple didn't just suddenly decide to put a few in stores today. if they are arriving in stores that means they will soon be shipping on a large scale. This is a rare occasion...apple might be ahead of schedule on a product release.

HAHA! These people aren't professional photographers though. I don't think it really matters how professional the photos look - as long as they are in focus and give us a glimpse of what the ipod touch is like in their environment - and a bit of their excitement. If we want professional shots, we will just go to the photo gallery on the apple site!

This sucks! I just called Apple and had a long wait on the phone. I wanted to cancel my order. Once I finally got through, the gal told me that she would have to transfer me to some other department. The Apple store in my area was closing in 30 minutes so I needed to get this done fast. Then once I got through to someone the guy said that my order has been shipped and that I should be getting an email shortly with the tracking number. I think they were trained to do that so that they wouldn't have to go through the hassle of canceling an online order. This sucks! So, I would just have to wait for my iPod Touch to come in the mail. Wish I didn't order it online. Next time I'll just buy it at my local Apple retailer. Whatever!

I'm sorry. I'm not impressed with the picture quality. If I were taking the time to do this and post the pictures, I'd be sure the images were perfect. Especially since everyone wants to see details and not blurred closeups. Thanks anyway.......

must you make a comment like that? seriously... :rolleyes: people are such tits around here lately. If you don't like the pics then just don't say anything

If that was the case, I'd think most of these forums would have only about 4 replies. But, isn't that the point of these forums though? A FRANK discussion. No Politically Correct bs. Just straight-up talk. Come on. Sonofhaig wasn't being crass, rude or mean. He just said it like it is. Direct, to-the-point and then - how dare he - he ends it off with a "Thanks Anyway . . ." OMG! He ends it off with some manners.

But seriously, I've seen a lot more rude and mean comments in these forums. Sonofhaig, wasn't one of them. Let's not get too touchy out here people.

Plus, I agree. If you are going to take pictures, I have three words for you.

Focus.
Focus.
Focus.

It's not that we don't appreciate kuebby taking the pictures for us. We do. We really do. But if you ARE going to take pics, at least get us something we haven't seen before (screens and apps that were not shown at the keynote or displayed on the Apple site, etc.).

Meh, I called my Apple store and it rang for five minutes and still no one picked up the phone. All I want to know is do I tell my friend to go buy one tonight. (I've got the iPhone already and he wants a Touch, we were going to wait until the $100 rebate thing kicks in for my phone but maybe not).

Edit: someone finally picked up the phone and he said it doesnt come out until the 28th, I told him that other Apple stores around the country have recieved shipments and started selling them, he repeats the 28th (not like I expect different, since I'm reading voice tones and such and not what he is saying). Oh well, call again tomorrow...

It's not that we don't appreciate kuebby taking the pictures for us. We do. We really do. But if you ARE going to take pics, at least get us something we haven't seen before (screens and apps that were not shown at the keynote or displayed on the Apple site, etc.). Otherwise, there're nothing but out-of-focus shots of something that looks like an iPod Touch.


I apologize for that bad pictures but I really don't have anywhere good for taking well lit in-focus pictures. My apartment has no areas that are really well lit that I wouldn't need flash. As far as picture subjects, I posted very early in the thread asking what people wanted to see in pictures and as far as I know no one responded.

What camera are you using?

Sorry about the complaints, but it just seems a lot of the images were out of focus, so it was hard to see any details.

Can you take some of the Wi-Fi store App as well as the new Cover Flow stuff?

Let me know if you need any help with some camera tricks as far as getting subjects in tight areas in focus.

One suggestion would be, if you don't have a tripod, to place the camera on a coffee table while having the iPod propped up on another coffee table directly across from the camera. This way you can shoot with a slower shutter speed and not have to shoot with flash. This will take care of the reflection issues you had in some shots as well.

Let me know if you need any other tips.

you can test this in any browser... GMail opperates by default with JavaScript activated... (i'm not sure if iPhone and iPod touch have javascript enabled Safari browser or not)... anyway... if you attempt to load gmail with a browser without JavaScript, you will receive this message:

JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Gmail in standard view. However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser. To use standard view, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, then try again.

It comes in handy when you wanna go to the genius bar with absolutely NOBODY there. ;)

I needed my iPod headphones replaced so I went at around 3:15am, I was the only one in the store save for 5-6 employees. Walked up to the genius bar, told the guy I needed new headphones...he just took mine and handed me a pair from under the bar.

Took 5 minutes...so sometimes it's useful.

I believe that it's exclusive to AT&T for five years, but the plan you sign up for when you buy iPhone lasts two years. So we are talking about two different things here.

Sigh, the text box for rich text isn't a normal text box. You have to change to plain text before the iPhone/iPod Touch will let you input text. Macrumors is also affected if you use rich text button that is next to the spell check button.

Also, did anyone else notice the headphones plug isn't recessed on the Touch? Very much something to think about if you hate the stock buds!!!

I think that this is exactly right. Apple are probably not going to launch iPhone in the UK next week, but they'll announce a launch date and mobile partner. They've been forced to bring forward the announcement so that they don't end up with more disgruntled consumers who "only bought an iPod touch because the iPhone wasn't out" - they'd start to demand store credits...

I'm the kind of sucker who will buy both anyway, so if I see one this weekend on Regents Street, I'll snap it up :)

I'm willing to bet that 99% of people use their mobiles solely for phone calls and SMS messaging. The 3G networks have been scrabbling around to find the 'killer app' that will justify the billions they spent on 3G operating licences, let alone begin to recoup some of the cost.

The iPhone is probably going to be first device that even begins to realise the potential of 3G mobiles, what with Google maps, iTunes Wifi Store (can that be used over 3G I wonder ?), email and web browsing. For that reason, yes the iPhone has to be 3G in Europe, but NOT because we're already using 3G for anything useful...

I've had a 3G mobile for probably 4 years now, and what have I ever used it for ? The occasional spot of frustrating web browsing thanks to Opera Mini, and that's it.

I really like the keyboard that you can see in the background of your pics, what kind is it?

It's a Kenningston Mac Keyboard, got it from Amazon.

Well I survived the subway at 3am and got my touch from the fifth ave store.

To the poster who said the exclusivity with Apple and AT&T is 5 years, I believe it is only 2. If you saw something different from what I saw please post the link. Thanks.

Dude, seriously. Even I don't take the subway after 1am. :)

But good to know they have them!

All I want to know is who picked the album art for the box? I mean who is the nobody on the iPod? And why has she been immortalized on every iPod box? Why couldn't they just display the main menu or the Apple logo? I'll never understand why they plaster the likes of U2 and the RHCP all over their iPod packaging. It just looks stupid.
