    Have updates ever been released on a Sunday?

    Edit: Just looked through the buyers guide. An update has NEVER been done before (in recent Buyer's Guide history) on a weekend so don't get your hopes up.

    Sunday at 1:00 am? Likely to just be site maintenance.

    As I said in another thread, just because they have never done a weekend release, what is stopping them from trying to see if it will actually be better for them.

    Sunday morning is their normal maintenance window. But tossing in a little update or two for a change would be fun :)

    Yep, now 9:14. 3 minutes over the hour. Time to call the lawyer and file a complain about misrepresentation and false advertising.

    The way I see it, IBM must be behind it as it is another of those 3GHz myths.

    Haha.

    Although I must say its quite a nice Vista of the Apple Store with the yellow post it note. It really brings clarity to the world so you can focus on what matters to you.

    Haha, you're staying up just to see what's happening?

    I'd laugh so hard if it were down for a day or two (although that would NEVER EVER HAPPEN EVER, it'd be funny to see a mac geek sitting next to the computer, constantly refreshing. Bloodshot eyes, coffee, in your bathrobe.. haha)
