    i went to check my order status and it says "a technical difficulty has prevented us from doing this". anybody else got this message? or is it just me?

    I had the same problem on the 3rd gens... It's apples way of saying "We are selling more than we are making" ..... I called apple last year of this time when i pre-ordered it. I then cancelled it because it said it for a week, than I went on Bestbuy and bought it off of that site.... Which is good because I saw that it had "accidental care" which just came in handy because my cheap computer desk fell on my Ipod touch and my whole screen shattered (when i picked it up i also cut my finger on it :( ) and they replaced it no questions asked..... So if you have bad luck or very clumsy I would switch to Bestbuy.....

    well they told me 9th-14th delivery so will they delay it or not. why dont they just get enought for the pre orders and send them out first instead of having to make us wait cos the stores want them. we paid first!

    I suppose, but they can never work out the exact numbers of people who are going to pre-order, that's impossible. They make them fast, but not that fast :p

    Shipping out to stores and buying on Apple store online are two different stocks I believe.... They are not going to have your ipod touch with a sticky with your name on it.... They most likely send a certain amount of ipods to stores and some on the apple site... So many people are like "I got to get to the apple store!" then they buy it and there are over one million people all buying at the same time and it gets to the point where, they are all pre-ordered! But stores on the other hand, are not as crowded.... Most people buy it off of Apple site because they think they will get it faster.... If your lucky, maybe. But thats very odd..... Im expected to get my ipod touch in a couple of days... I bought my ipod touch on "September 2 , 2010" and so i guess they are bundled up in a certain amount for stores..... ( In stores i mean Bestbuy... I did buy pre-order online and pick up at store)

    No. Apple will not ship the new iPods of any flavour until at least Wednesday. It's not their style to do that. They never said they would deliver by Wednesday, they directly said that they ship on Wednesday. And likely not a day before.

    When did Apple directly say anything about their precise shipping day? All I remember is Steve Jobs saying "available next week".

    No, rather, Steve said shipping in ONE week. Indicating a week to the day, which has been affirmed over and over in this short time.

    Yes, shipping Wednesday. You should get it between the 10th and the 14/15th, depending on when you ordered it.

    An Apple customer service person (via online chat) told me that if I pre-ordered an iPod touch online it would arrive the same day that the stores get them.

    Marketing wise

    I don't like the way Steve Jobs announced the release for the new products. Whether he said, "Available next week" or "Available in one week" people are going to wait for the new iPods.

    When you radically change everything, you have to build up stock. I think the week wait helps build hype. I mean, just look all around the forums, people are TALKING about it.

    But I suspect the demand for the new iTouch's and the other devices isn't nearly as strong as it was for iPhones and iPads. I ordered a 64GB Touch overnight and it says "Delivers on Sept 10th (Friday). So, take it for what it is.
