    Has anyone else's Tiger not shipped yet?

    Mine still says preparing shipment...which it's been doing for 48 hours.

    It is now almost midnight where I am (9 p.m. Apple time) and it still says "will ship on or before 4/28"

    What's the holdup? Tiger Direct?



    :mad:

    Tiger Direct is suing Apple over Tiger, maybe Apple is doing what they ask and not shipping them any copies. ;)

    Highly doubt it. An actual injunction would be everywhere.
    Perhaps Apple is not holding back their shipments out of courtesy. :rolleyes:

    I would call Apple and see whats up. Perhaps they already send it out. A few people noted that they got ship notices at least 12 hours after FedEx picked up the packages.

    Here's hoping for you.

    Yep. I asked the same question earlier today in one of the myriad Tiger threads and several people responded that they were in the same boat as you and I. I called up customer care and had them verify my order - the rep said there's nothing wrong with my order and that I will be receiving my copy tomorrow. We'll see...

    As long as you didn't order from TigerDirect, don't expect any problems.

    Of course Apple probably wouldn't go as far as Ford did, sue us -- and we won't sell you anything.

    I ordered my copy of Tiger about an hour after Apple put it on their site for sale. My status STILL says "Processing Order". I'll be surprised if I get it tomorrow and my status stays the same. I got iWork before Apple sent me the e-mail saying it shipped.

    Mine was supposed to arrive by Friday @ 4:30pm. But today the FedEx tracking said it was on the truck at 8:03am to be delivered. It never was delivered so at 6pm I went to FedEx and they let me pick it up. I did not order mine until a week after announcement b/c I was waiting to see if my wife would get a free copy d/t being a Student Developer, which Apple was unsure of. Sure enough, the day after I ordered they called to say we would get a free copy, but not until the May mailing for ADC. But I was excited so I did not cancel the order....glad I didn't b/c I'm enjoying Tiger now.

    Yep, so did mine. However, I am still getting the "preparing shipment" status on the order page. It's been frozen on that for about 3-4 days now, and I ordered my copy at least 2 weeks ago.

    Same crap here, I have pre ordered my copy with the educational discount on April 15th, and i have yet to receive word on when it will be shipped, which is odd since it clearly states the following:


    OS X V10.4 "TIGER" RETAIL-INT

    M9639Z/A

    On or before
    04/28/2005



    Makes me wonder wheter anyone nearby has received his/her copy yet..

    If its meant to be here tomorrow it should have been shipped already.

    Anyone else here from upstate ny area?

    My status was still stuck on preparing for shipment at 11:40 pm on thursday and now after I just checked my copy had been shipped on the 27th... so I will be getting it tomorrow and I am sure that for most people the web status just has not changed yet.. good luck to every one

    Parisi - there is another thread on this forum about people in the Northeast being served from the PA warehouse who are complaining about their shipments. I am one of them. I just received an email from Apple and they have updated my shipping status to Shipped - but the FedEx Website says my package isn't expected until May 2. What gives? (I live in Ohio by the way)

    They are probably more limited by the number of copies they can ready for shipment per day, it's not like they've got a bunch of North Pole elves working for them. ;)

    Hehe... Santa has the capacity to deliver to every good child in one night. I think that's a good standard for FedEx to aspire to... :)

    Just checked my order status about 10 minutes ago and it says my copy of Tiger shipped today via USPS. Not sure if it was sent Express or Priority though. Would be nice if I got it tomorrow.
