I, like most people on this forum, have been anxiously awaiting the 6th gen iPod. I'm not sure what they'll do with it but I'm certain I'm going to want it. I've never purchased an iPod on launch day (or lived in a city with an Apple Store) but I plan to buy on September 5th. Assuming it comes out. So what's my best bet? Should I place an order as soon as the Apple online store comes up or do I have a chance in hell at my local Apple store? Of course that assumes that Steve says "can be purchased starting today". Do Apple stores usually have the new stock ready to sell as soon as the annoucement is over? Do local resellers get theirs on the first day, too?
