    seriously, this could be one of the worst managed launches Apple has ever done.


    the initial supply had to be thinner than Cook's hair


    7 months since introduction, unbelievable

    They literally stocked only 5000 black sports. This is some BS waiting till mid may.

    Steve Jobs is turning over in his grave

    Why is this a problem? If you had ordered early you would of got one early. It's as simple as that, you only have your self to blame.

    It is all in the hype !

    Apple can now say they have 'sold out' and that the product is an amazing success (without giving actual numbers)...

    And there it is, didn't take long, just 36 minutes. :rolleyes:

    FWIW, I placed my watch order at 8.01am and had my confirmation by 8.02am.

    Not badly managed at all.

    Well to be fair, I placed an order that was completed at 3:04AM... and still got a month late shipping date.

    with Apple watch the way it is.

    Also the new Macbook not ready to ship for a months and also not even in store here in Canada.

    I have absolutely no idea what Apple is doing. this is supposed to be their biggest product release in 5 years!

    Mark me disappointed

    In other words, you have no idea how many black Sport watches Apple has in stock and just like posting misinformation.

    ordered in 3.02 and says May.
    the best part is people will make appointment to apple store to see the watch only to be told they won't get it until June. Awesome time

    worst for some, best for others. If I could actually go back to sleep, I would. I was planning for an hour of "work"...took 1 minute.

    Sounds like someone tried to order one and couldn't get one.

    FWIW, I ordered mine at 8.01am this morning (UK Time) and I was done and dusted by 8.02am.

    I'm not quite sure what makes you claim it's "by far the worst launch in Apple's history" (sour grapes perhaps?).
