    Apple has never released any downloads at midnight before. 9-10 am PST is more likely.

    Thanks for that.

    There is an error, though. When it's midnight in California, it will be 8am here in the UK.

    We (UK) are on GMT +1 during the summer, and California is on GMT -8, but also on daylight saving time so actually GMT -7 in the summer, therefore there is an eight hour difference between us.

    We've been hearing it will hit the Mac App Store on Wednesday July 20th, at 8:30AM EST. This seems pretty logical to me.

    I don't know how you're calculating this, but 8am in the UK is no where near 2pm NZ

    SL was released when the stores opened, I believe, not at midnight. How do you release a physical product at midnight when all your stores are closed?

    Lion is not going to be a physical product, just a download. I do agree though that it probably won't be released until sometime in the late morning.

    UK time is not GMT.. its GMT+0 in winter time and GMT+1 now.
    so if the UK is 8AM then CET (Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Rome..) is 9AM.

    considering the fact that my hard work has received a -7, I'm going to nuke another thread.
