    I'm currently at the apple store london for the Tiger release!

    Who else from mac rumors is down here? so far we've spotted Hector, Asif786 and AppleSpider.

    If you're not here, the atmosphere's just like opening day! It's so crazy! You get free scratch cards with the chance to win a powerbook, ipod or free iTunes music.

    BTW, for anyone thinking of getting tiger at thte edu price of £59.00, don't come here. The discount won't apply (as Asif786 found out when i had to pay for his copy)

    I have to admit, today was a great day to release. So nice and sunny down here. Need to ask the creative guy that was taking photos for a copy

    The BBC is here. They'll be releasing the videos of the tiger day next saturday on clicknline. It'll also be on breakfast news and BBC news 24 at some point.

    They've basically taken people and got them to videoconference over iChatAV. They also filmed the screensaver taking RSS feeds directly from the BBC's news site. It's quite cool.

    Check it out if you can

    just a little sour tid bit but i had an apple employe alex columbo come up and swear at an ex employe for posting a message at mac rumors (not anything NDA breaking), left a sour taste in my mouth about apples hireing decisions if they let such an empoyee work in there store especially if it's harder to work at the apple store than to get into harvod/cambridge.
