    Well I ordered my up to date snow leopard disk last month and apple informed me that my card will not be charged until my order is about to be shipped. My total order with tax was $10.65. Well I just checked my PNC account online and it showed a $10.65 charge from the Apple Online Store that was effective on August 20th 2009.

    Cards won't get charged until it actually ships out. When you order it, it will show a charge on the card but then it goes away.

    dont believe them they always say your card will not be charged until your items are shipped, well amazon/buy/newegg and apple.com say the same but always charge before shipping. might be the computer but thats how it is.. i complained about that one time and got free shipping because of it. i get an email alert saying my card was charged online (not swiped) every time so i know :)

    Strange. Amazon NEVER did that to me, but Apple always does it when I order from their online store.

    "A Wizard (or :apple: OS) Is NEVER late, Bilbo Baggins. He always arrives precisely when he means to."

    With apologies to Gandolph, SL will not be early. Nor will it be late. It will be released when it will be released.

    Not to :apple: it wasn't. They released it when they meant to.

    Then they shouldn't have told us that it would be out in the spring. You're completely wrong.

    Wouldn't be the first time.

    And you are completely missing the point. Late, according to who? Consumers? Yes. Apple? No.

    So you agree that it was late. Or, rather, you agree that your point is meaningless because every release can be taken from two different points of view.

    There. Smiles to take the sting out, avoid hurt feelings.

    I am not concerned with your point of view. You feel Leo was late. Therefore, to you, it was. To Apple, the only entity with control over the release, it wasn't late.

    Same with SL. All the bickering, speculating, babbling -- all pointless. SL will release when :apple: is darn good and ready, and not before.

    Whose feelings are hurt? You're just wrong, that's all.

    Sorry, but this proves otherwise:
