Just got an email from the Apple store. I ordered on the 14th and I've been stuck at Preparing Shipment for the last several days. The following email just arrived in my inbox: Dear Valued Apple Customer, We appreciate your recent Apple Store Order 123456789 Due to an unexpected delay, we are unable to ship the following item(s) by the date that you were originally quoted: M9639Z/A, OS X V10.4 "TIGER" RETAIL-INT will now ship on or before 04/29/2005 Please note that product availability can change rapidly, and it is possible that your order may ship much sooner than we anticipate.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this delay may have caused you. Thank you for shopping at the Apple Store! Fantastic service I must say. First they tell me that anyone who orders before the 26th can get Tiger by the 29th. Now they claim some b.s. about "unexpected delays". What a crock.
