    Hey guys!

    I thought it would be an awesome idea if the people who are preordering the AW could all get together in a Skype group conversation.

    That way we can exchange thoughts on AW, what models we're getting an maybe get in a group call closer to midnight when preorders go live (kinda like a launch party in some sense).

    If you're interested, add me on Skype @ luke.walsh5 and I'll add you to the group conversation.

    Thanks! :)

    Are you crazy?!?!? I can't spare that kind of bandwidth on a preorder night!

    :cool:

    I haven't used Skype in years but I'm all about this. That would be pretty cool! Now I need to somehow retrieve my login info.

    Send me a contact request on Skype when possible or private msg me your Skype name so I can send the contact request.

    Won't we all be posting here the second we get in with the exact time the order is timestamped, the model, and the expected delivery date?

    This is an interesting idea! However, if it's anything like most preorders I do on Apples website.. It'll start at 2am my time (central) and I'll get my preorder in when the site stops getting DDOS'ed from heavy traffic around 4:30AM.

    The chat can also be to exchange thoughts and what not. For example I had a chat for about an hour today with a person from the forums just about the AW.

    just a friendly reminder: USE THE APPLE STORE APP ON YOUR PHONE/TABLET.

    It actually works, and you can get a preorder through in seconds.

    Oh I wasn't debating the usefulness/fun factor. I use Skype all the time while playing online games with friends. I just meant.. By 4:30AM. I'd probably be a zombie and not very talkative. :p

    Who knows. If I'm wide awake, I'd love to join.

    This is an awesome idea! However I think Skype only allows up to like 4 people Max in a convo. Still live the idea!

    You can have way more than 4 people in a group convo. Private message me your Skype username.

    Maybe you haven't been around for this stuff but for us Apple Nerds these preorder dates are very lively Events on these forums. Doing a Skype call would just be part of the fun (although in this day and age a Google hangout might be more appropriate).

    If you're gonna nay-say about this kind of stuff maybe these forums aren't for you.

    Can't wait to hear from everyone April 10th!

    Okay but I've been preordering iPhones and have never heard of a Skype party even in the iPhone sub-forum. All of us chime in the forum to update our progress before and after preordering.

    It's just a part of the fun really. Something just a tad more instant than the forums so that we can all share our thoughts, updates, problems. Just to add to the excitement.
