I'm also thinking Yorkdale. Free parking when compared to the Eaton Centre. Not sure what time I'm going to be there at.

I'd probably go to Eaton Centre if I had to buy it at one of the Apple Stores, but I'm going to place a pre-order because I do wish to avoid the crowd. I can wait for extra few days. :D

I hope you guys enjoy meeting up!

Cheers. :apple:

I commute by subway, so it's a quick stop at the mall on my way home.

No chance they'd run out of inventory is there? I'm buying a family pack.

Leopard arrives October 26
The world premiere of Leopard, the biggest upgrade to Mac OS X, is October 26. And on that big day, the Apple Retail Store is the place to be. Join us from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and be the first to experience the world’s most advanced operating system. And if you’re one of the first 500 guests, you’ll go home with a special edition Leopard T-shirt. See you there.

Should I really wait for 3-4 hours to pick up a T-shirt...? Well, I know it's not any T-shirt... a Leopard T-shirt... Arrg... I am torn... :D

Cheers. :apple:

Ill be at the Eaton centre with my unlocked iPhone :D

I was thinking about getting there around 4:00 but if people are planning on getting there even earlier then I will too.

I was at the Eaton centre location yesterday evening and they had a sign saying, "we will be closed on Friday October 26th from 4:00-6:00 to get ready for the release of Leopard"

Maybe I'll see some of you there. :) 

I've noticed from other threads that piracy bothers a lot of people here, you might want to change your post.

yup, i think he just ripped off the security attachment and took off with the iPod. Later, inside the store I found the exact unit that was missing. There was a dock, and just a dangling cable... no ipod haha.

And to sora... yes, i was snapping away fanatically haha. The security guard even came over and said "no pictures" haha

newno55 a word of advice, take those photos down before they get YOU into trouble. I understand it was your camera that took them and they're your photos and all, but you have someone else's face posted on the internet without that person's permission. Not only that these photos of the Leopard launch were not allowed to be taken in the first place, security is instructed to prohibit all cameras for a reason. posting these could lead to multiple charges involving This website,Sherway gardens & The Apple store and of course the people in the photos themselves! If your smart you'll take them down NOW
