    Some people reported that there was in fact an overnighter in Apple Store (I remember at least one guy claiming that he drove near an Apple Store at 1am and there were still people and a guard). Just because there was an overnighter doesn't mean that the release will happen on the following day though.

    They had a group of people in the store overnight. :rolleyes:

    Does it matter what they did? It just means that something new is coming!!! :eek: Hurray!! I had NO idea that was going on...;)

    They're probably prepping their employees on how to deal with Lion and new hardware. However, this does not mean that Apple will be releasing it today or tomorrow.

    Wouldn't it be quicker to download it? rather than wait outside a store? *Confused*

    Not to mention it's not available in stores unless your trying to get a new computer.

    Maybe someone misunderstood. An overnighter occurring on July 14th could mean tonight after business hours. Someone took that as meaning early July 14th morning (after midnight) but is actually suppose to start tonight. What time do Apple stores usually close? 9PM?

    oh sorry, i guess they close at 9.

    If some of u guys could check like around 10 or 11, i mean if the store will still be open then it means the are having and overnighter and it was indeed misread.

    I don't think Lion is going to come out this week. That's pretty much a given at this point. Any overnight training sessions being conducted this week would be preparation in advance, and nothing to get excited about really.

    Not true. Apple Stores will help users install Lion in stores using Apple's network.

    PLEASSEEEE SOMEONE CHECK TO SEE IF ANY APPLE STORES HAVE BLACKED-OUT WINDOWS :D

    Another forum user just reported that the stores in England are blacked out, though I have no way of verifying this.

    I am thinking that tomorrow is a very possible launch day. However If it does not come out tomorrow, I will choose to sit back and relax a little. No need to get worked up over a OS.

    Ok then, unless you take your computer to the Apple Store (picture someone with a Mac Pro , hauling down to the Apple store to download lion) you can't download and install Lion. (or buy the physical media)

    I don't think "humble" was exactly what we were being.

    If you mean grumbling, then that's a different story.
