    The flagship store isn't going to run out of boxed copies of Tiger on the first day; a DVD of software isn't as component-scarce as supply of the Shuffle etc was. They're closing at 5pm and opening again at 6pm; I don't think many people are going to take time off work to get there during the early afternoon - they didn't for the opening. The queue for that only really started about 5.30 when people left work and headed into town. And a lot of them were there for the Lucky Bags because they wanted an iPod.
