    you think Apple's website is going to take a dump the night of the 15th

    i remember when i ordered my 3gs the day it came out. it took me 2 hours for each page to load, god it was hell. im sure its going to do the same thing this time around.

    any thoughts???

    Do you really think ALL the millions of available units will be pre-sold on the 15th? Doubtful. Apple knows this device is generating huge buzz and the more units they make, they more they'll sell. So I really doubt there will be any shortage. If I were pre-ordering and the website didn't work straight away on the 15th, I'd just wait until the 16th. You'll still get the device on the same day as everyone else.

    But I B Po' so I won't be pre-ordering.

    Patrick I think you missed the point, this is in regards to the site
    not being to handle the traffic, not a shortage of phones.

    I understand the point. But usually this sort of thing happens because hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people will be trying to pre-order that very first day, the 15th. Any why? Mostly because people think they will "run out" or "sell out" or whatever. I know lots of people want to be among the first to get the phone and all, but won't pre-ordering on the 16th or 17th still mean you'll get the phone the same day? Why deal with a crashed and/or laggy website?

    However, if only the pre-orders that come in on the 15th actually get delivered on the 24th, then yeah I can see the reason for the "stampede" that day.

    Yeah. I don't think they'll run out of phones for the pre-order people. I do think the website won't be able to handle the load and will shut down. However, as Patrick pointed out in the last part of his 1st paragraph, I'm not worried cuz I'm sure you can just order on the 16th or 17th and still be just fine.

    You'd think if Apple has the foresight to build millions of units to meet initial demand, you'd also think they'd beef up their servers, web connections, etc. etc. to handle the traffic you know there will be on the 15th.

    15th at Night? I guess I missed where it says it will be at night.
    Only the tech geeks are going to wait up till 1AM or 3 AM to order the iphone. All the normal people will do it the next day.
    What time exactly are you guys talking about on PST.

    yeah the time zones and having the preorders open during the night will help slow things down. You'll have each time zone logging on when they wake up in the morning and by the time 8am-9am PST hits that's when I'd predict the heaviest load on their servers. Then you'll have 'late' comers from east coast at 11am, central at 10, morning coffee drinkers rolling on at mountain time around 9am and then pacific workers getting in at 8.

    I'm sure apple is banking on that curve. Hopefully they adjust accordingly for the height of orders but they may just do what theyan and ride it out until the flow drops. (like they had to last year).

    After doing research I learned that Apple has not yet announced any specific time pre-ordering will begin.
    That information should be released Friday or Monday.
