    I just got off the phone w/apple support (1800MYAPPLE) and they said that there server crashed and they "temporarily" removed the 2.0 update so they could repair the server and they told me that the update should be available in about 2-3 hours.

    JULY 11=EPIC FAILURE

    hmmm... they have been saying that for hours! Hopefully though as the traffic dies down, it will become available.

    It would seem to me that all the upset people about not being able to get the new software is just a tribute to how much people love Apple's products and want to play with the latest and greatest.

    I clicked update on iTunes, it shows 2.0 is available, but it didn't do anything; I click update again just now and how it says 1.1.4 is the latest. WTF :mad:

    As much as people bash a company like Microsoft, their update servers NEVER go down.

    Im very sad. I forgot all about 2.0 today and finally remember when i saw applications in my itunes when i was listening to music. I went to get it and just like everyone else ive seen on this board, no luck.

    Although maybe im lucky cus i havent had to stress over it all day.

    Im in no hurry, i got the apps i want downloaded and ill just need to wait for 2.0 tomorrow or whenever it gets here.

    Well today was bad day because the Genius bars were closed, my MBP power cord ripped, and I had to wait 3 hours to get a new adapter.

    apple really should know better than that, they had MONTHS to be ready, really, epic fail, i mean, even smaller sites realize after being slashdotted once they need to do something and usually do, apple had the exact same problem last year with activation servers and didnt lean a bit from it it seems
