    I have no idea, but some people on this forum said that they have a week holiday. And most of them won't be working :(

    While the Chinese are entitled to their Holiday, I can't believe Apple would plan their launch around this time, knowing production would come to a halt/slow down for an entire week.

    I completely agree. This is a crucial time for sales. They should give them time and a half to persuade them to stay and work haha

    Foxconn workers are paid triple time for working during the holidays.

    UPS says that their service will be impacted Oct 1-3. But there is a UPS flight out of China later today.

    So if I am waiting on Best Buy in Ontario to get a shipment early then it has to be shipped tomorrow?

    I couldn't imagine the Chinese actually getting a week off for any reason. Think about it....it wasn't that long ago that we were reading about suicides because of work conditions. Now they get a week off while there's big money to be made?? No way.

    The Chinese are all off work for a week. I am here at the moment and they are all off.
