    I've never seen a midnight release for Apple products, so probably not.

    Probably July 25th 12 AM PDT not EST since Apple HQ is in California.

    I don't think Apple ever launches anything at midnight.

    No, if it's the same last year it will be around 8 am EST.

    A midnight release is very un-Apple like. They like the media coverage.

    Whether its 8AM or 12Midnite, its still tomorrow, right? So you might as well relax,do what it is you do during the day and go to sleep cause when you wake up, hopefully the new ML OS will be waiting at the Apple store. :)

    Yeah I know. But if in fact there servers crash. (they will) I want to be able to download it early so I don't have to be checking back all day trying and failing.

    Also I have class and I know ill be up at 12 AM so I can start the download and install then go to bed.

    Safari might feel snappier, but I bet you won't if you're awake at midnight downloading ML.

    I am counting on Safari being snappier. I don't understand the second part of your post... :confused:

    I would like it available early so I can start downloading before I go to work. I leave at 6:00 am CDT and won't get home until about 5:30 pm CDT so I know if I can't download it until later there will be server backlog. I'm still running Snow Leopard on my early 2011 MBP and Lion on my late 2011 mini, but the whole airplay has me excited. I work all day on an XP desktop and a Unix workstation, so I don't do much on the home computers other than entertainment, music, movies and surfing the internet....

    You won’t be getting it from an Apple server - you will be getting it from a local CDN owned and operated by Akaimi. You will get it without having to constantly re-try.

    No that is not apple's style they will usually release it in the morning on the day of release but you may be waiting a while the first week because a lot of people will probably be downloading it so it may be slow to download .

    I think he's implying you might be a bit sleepy at midnight ;)

    So no luck yet? When I lookup San Fransisco on my iPhone, it's still says yesterday! So 'tomorrow' hasn't even started yet... :confused:

    Only 'midnight' Apple release I know of is the iPhone 4 pre-order (not sure of the 4S since I wasn't eligible for upgrade at the time). As far as software it's been late morning early afternoon, depends on when Tim decides to call the guy and say 'make it so'.;)
