    Why do they do this to us? It's almost 12:30 on the East Coast and here on the West Coast it's almost 9:30.

    Because most kids don't get out of bed until the crack of noon. Who would man the trouble call desks? Oh, yes, I forgot, India is still sleeping.

    I'll be happy as long as they release it before midnight tonight... Otherwise they're liars.

    I already talked to Steve. He says they're waiting because watching a bunch of kids on internet forums whine about how it's June 17th and 3.0 isn't out is very entertaining. Expect it at 11:59 PM Hawaiin time.

    Because it is somebody's job at Apple to deploy the update, and that somebody probably works on a 9-5 schedule...

    Why would you put out a huge update when most of your employees are asleep?

    That's just asking for trouble.
