    Anyone in here sign up by 9/11 12:00PST (today) to be eligible for a Developer Kit?

    Anyone heard anything from Apple yet? I have not :(

    I'd like to get my hands on one :)

    I signed up but have yet to hear anything. I don't have much faith that I'll get approved.

    The Developer Kit page says:

    "We’ll let you know your status by email starting September 14."

    I put in for the kit and I believe I have a 5% chance at the most to get it. I have no apps published yet. I understand it will be going to developers that have published apps.

    I signed up for one as well, why not, it's worth a shot even if I think I've more chance of being the next pope than getting one :D

    I would assume the e-mails won't start going out until 12:00 or 1:00 PDT. Interesting program, seems Apple is really excited to get the ball rolling on app dev. Good luck to those who signed up :)

    I can't believe that they are only charging $1 for the kit! Pretty cool. I have a couple published apps, but they have never been very high in the charts outside of being featured once.

    Split My Tab (self promotion woo)

    Hoping I get something, but I can't imagine I will be that lucky.

    Good luck to everyone that submitted!

    no luck for me either... :( I guess what matters most is having the SDK. At least that's what I'm telling myself :)

    Yeah, we have the SDK... it was more of the ability to get it for early and for basically free so I didn't end up with my primary Apple TV sitting in my office when I test.

    Oh well... it was worth the shot of submitting.

    Sorry to hear that, did it happen just now?

    I haven't gotten anything, I'd like to at least know one way or the other.
