    If this is true and not just another rumor to get people exited over nothing. The question is will apple release it everywhere at once or is this release time just for UK? I'm on EST, so 8PM? 5PM Apple time? That is a strange time to release it!

    If I were a betting man, my money would still be on the 14th around 3PM EST or 8PM UK time.

    Indentation of 'OS X Lion' seems a bit off compared to other items...

    The Mac App Store is open, but Lion will appear with the Mac App Store open (I suppose). iTunes Connect is down now.

    The lettering is also 1px wider than the rest. Pretty poor try really.

    Yeah, I guess I'll look as foolish as the other millions of people making predictions...

    Don't get me wrong, but when you're looking forward to something it's annoying when it gets pushed back time after time. I'm not trying to rain on anyones parade but I'm talking from experience. You get so many people on here who 'claim to be in the know', when really they know naff all.

    I am as excited as you are and the sooner it comes out the better. I pray you're right because if I were you and I made such claims, I'd be a shade embarrassed too.
    :(

    I don't think OP is making any predictions. He is just posting an article from a well-known Mac site who is claiming 1am release. There are worse threads where the OP just claims to know something and has nothing to back it up.

    Cult of Mac isn't the source of this rumor, it's SpeakApple.net. I personally have never heard of them.

    I like Cult of Mac a lot, but at this point they are regurgitating every rumored release date. It's getting nuts.

    Close contact at Apple = 14 year old British kid spreading rumours.

    I don't trust them - they said 'could of' not 'could have' and used 'their' instead of 'there'.

    Hmmm. I smell something...

    You'll probably get a reply like "When it's on the app store..."

    This hasn't been "pushed back" at all. The only information Apple has given is that Lion will be released in July. So that can include up until 31st July. If you don't want to hear these predictions and rumours, well, you're on the wrong forum.
