    Has there been any consistency in the time of day that Apple sends out their invites?

    Do they do it at the start of their business day?

    I know there are historical records for just about everything they do.

    Yes, I'm bored!

    Here's the information you need, buddy!

    Apple Special Events Invitation dates:
    March 2009: 12:06 PM on a Thursday
    September 2009: 12:03 PM on a Monday
    January 2010: 12:06 PM on a Monday
    April 2010: 12:05 PM on a Monday
    September 2010: 1:53 PM on a Wednesday
    October 2010: 11:06 AM on a Wednesday
    March 2011: 11:10 AM on a Wednesday

    That's the Engadget timeline for posting received invitations. I think it's pretty likely that we will get any information about the next special event around 12PM eastern time or maybe an hour earlier.

    Another example of people "police-ing" the forums.

    Relax. It's one thing to say "there are other threads about this" but to actually come back with links to them is a bit much, IMO. Get over yourself. Not everyone on here is devoted to this forum. People have lives outside of this place.

    Then... after the OP says none of those threads were specific to his question, he is answer with "A simple Google search would have answered that"

    Some of you regulars are really annoying and make it annoying to come here sometimes. It's just a forum.

    +1 well said. I also love the attempted sarcasm on these forums. It's more than obvious people do it just to up their post count.

    I agree with you, the only point I'd make is that I appreciate the effort to link to relevant threads. I generally review the forums before I ask a question, but I can't always find what I'm looking for. When someone takes the time to find and link to an appropriate thread, I do appreciate that.

    I agree with you there. But unfortunately, it seems that most of the time it's done in a "see a$$hole" way instead of a courteous, helpful way.

    That being said... the search function is less that ideal and it's not as easy to find things as it should be.

    Ok, so basically, we have to wait until 2PM EST.

    Countdown: 1 hour 37 minutes left

    Actually, the countdown should be:
    1 hr 37 (or)
    1 day 1 hr 37 (or)
    2 days 1 hr 37 (or)
    ... and so on.

    Then you'll be right!

    Try posting something relevant to the thread as their are TONS of posts saying the same thing you just said elsewhere. On topic I doubt the invites will go out today as it's already 12:30Est. I could be wrong though.

    Are the times Pacific or Eastern?

    Apple is on Pacific time, but Engadget (source of the list) is primarily located in Eastern time zone. Just curious.

    It's the times on which Engadget posted their article about the invitations.

    I agree. They seem relatively uniform except that 1:53pm time randomly.

    i think taking the time to find the links is better, but there is a nicer way of telling people about existing forums. Yes, by all means link them. Just use a better sentence before that to inform the OP. They aren't always regulars on MacRumours and therefore they wouldn't have seen the previous threads/know how to use the slightly convoluted search function.
