EMEA = Europe, Middle East, Africa

It's a relatively common business term.

Look on the left-hand side, it should list the method of shipping as 2 day.

Does anyone know if you HAVE to buy a copy of Tiger to get into the release party at the Apple Retail Store? I pre-ordered mine from the online store but I still want to go to the release party...

i highly doubt that is so...mainly because theyd lose so much profit from other products that you might buy while in there...so no...if you hafta buy tiger to get in, tell the clerk ur looking to buy a brand new powermac...make sure ur face and personality will not be easily remembered...then make a dash for it! but the main concept of this covert operation is to get in tigerless...you dont want ur mission to fail and hafta listen to some neurotic apple store guy who thinks ur some idiotic PC user who will be filled with shock and awe after he describes "dashboard" to u... sry a lil off topic...

My order is now "preparing shipment" from Apple.com, and it says 2-day. I wonder, if it will be "preparing shipment," until wednesday, or if it might actually ship today or tomorrow? Here's hoping...
*Powerbook G4 12" - 1.5 GHZ
*iMac Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHZ (Mid 2007), *Apple 20-inch Cinema Display (Aluminium)
*iPhone 4S, Airport Extreme (2011) *MacBook Air 11-inch (Late 2010)

Mine as well. Let's hope it ships tomorrow. Thankfully I have this Friday off work.

i just got back from the local apple store...and the guy who sold me my powerbook two months ago immediately came up to me...i asked him about friday, and the convo went a lil like this...

me: so what time will the store close for tiger preparations on fri?
guy: we dont know that info at this time.
me: do u anticipate a large crowd?
guy: (eyes widen) YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
me: i see... (in my head a picture an enormous crowd rushing into the apple store from the quiet and usually uncrowded outdoor mall...)

my mom: my son told me there might be 10% discounts, is that true?
guy: we dont know that info at this time.

my mom and the guy engage in some odd convo and i move over and pick up a box of iWork...

my mom: alright, lets go...

(dropping the iwork box next to the powerbooks, which i NEVER do)

guy: see you friday.

and then the fantasy begins...

i turn around...

me: NEVER! TIEEGGGGGGGGGERRRRRRRRRRRR! (making mad dash to the very end of the store towards the sign that says employees only)

(the store goes dark and all of the innocent people rush to a security exit that appears in the wall... the guy who helped me gets on a loudspeaker...)

guy: sir, we have the place surrounded...u will not leave this store alive with a copy of tiger in your hands...please step away from the door...(sweat begins to drip down my forehead)...

i peer outside and see anodized aluminum blackhawk helicopters and white plastic dune buggies heading towards the store...steve jobs appears with a high powered "reality distortion rifle" that shoots waves of reality distortion that look similar to the dashboard ripple effect...elite imac G5 robot soldiers begin to spray the area with ipod halo effect automatic weapons...meanwhile, i reach behind the door and pull out a tiger box...steve jobs comes close and aims his reality distortion rifle at me...he grabs the retail box and the imac G5 robot seals it in a plastic bag for evidence...he turns around with a oddly shaped black plastic item...)

steve: DUDE! YOU'RE GETTING A DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(gunshots, screams)

(fade to black)

I suspect they are based on the order they were received. I placed mine on 4/22/05 and just today went to preparing shipment. They have until Wed to ship by 2nd day air to meet the Friday deadline. I am sure yours will change by then.

Not sure then. They have until Wed, but I know the wait is killing most people.

I just called the store and they informed me that because of all the traffic to the site that it is taking longer than usual for it to update and my order was infact prepairing for shipment with a delivery date of 4/28.

Good news then indeed.

My american order says preparing shipment and my canadian still says processing.
post #57 of 79
My past experience with direct Apple orders has been that their order status page rarely if ever actually reflects the current status.

Many times it has said preparing shipment right up until the moment of delivery. Don't know why this is, but their tracking seems way behind what other places offer. Probably not an issue for most consumers, but I suspect we're all similarly obsessive.
post #58 of 79
So I ordered yesterday morning and I am in the Preparing Shipment phase, with the upgrade to 2 day shipping (free of course). Not too bad. I am very happy with Apple right now.
post #59 of 79
Went to check the order status of Tiger, but all I get is the online store and phone order status are temporarily down for a service upgrade. Wonder if this means everyone's tiger status is getting updated....

I was thinking the same thing. I guess we will see soon enough.
post #61 of 79
I got a mail from the Apple Store saying my copy of Tiger had been shipped, and "The expected delivery time for your order is 2 - 3 days".

Strangely, the email was sent at 11.25 Tuesday night (I'm in Ireland).

Online tracking at the Irish Apple Store is down for "a scheduled upgrade to our systems." (the rest of the store is up).

The shipping reference number that came with the email does nothing on TNT's website, but I've found that tracking orders from the Apple store over here is always flakey.

Canadian tracking down too.

Yesterday my order status said "Processing Order" but this morning it says "Preparing for shipment". If I click the VIEW ORDER button I get this error message in the browser window:

"Did not receive any response from application. It is possible that the application does not exist, or that the requested url is incorrect."

Ya. Same thing for me this morning. I think the fact that Apple received just a tonne of orders at once, way more than they probably usually receive, it was just easier for them to pull down the server and do a massive update instead of a case by case basis. I called Apple Sales last night and they assured me it would be here Friday.

post #67 of 79
So has anyone who ordered Tiger with the Up To Date program had their copy sent yet? I ordered mine on 4/13 and I'm STILL on processing order. The Apple Store says it's due to ship in the next 24 hours, but that seems to be cutting it close for a Friday delivery, even considering I'm in Seattle. Are the Up To Daters the step children of Apple Shipping, or am I just paranoid...

For those that have shipped, does the Fedex tracking number work yet? If so, can you see what state it is shipping from? Thanks.

I placed my order on the 15th. I chose standard shipping, and the e-mail that Apple sent me says Fedex 2 day. The tracking number is not in the system yet.

Really? that blows! i placed mine on the 12th and mine is still processing...did you use the EDU discount?
post #72 of 79
Well I ordered on the 12th at 15:15 GMT (thats 10:15ish over there I think) and I got told that my copy would be shipping on or before Friday, so tomorrow earliest, meaning a Tuesday delivery at earliest.

I will be going to the new Apple Store here to pick it up on Friday...

(PS I bought with educational discount)

You may be surprised by a delivery on Friday. As I noted in an earlier post, my experience has been that Apple tracking is lacking, but their promised delivery dates have always been exact. My bet (although not with much $) is that you receive the delivery on Friday.

I just checked my home email via VNC and I got a confirmation email from Apple Canada that my order has shipped.

Just recieved my copy of Tiger.

Nuneaton (UK) -> Liege (Belgium) -> Dublin (Ireland), quite a round-about route, but it still got here a day early.
post #78 of 79
Mine finally shows as shipped and the tracking number works.

Shipped from Middletown, PA around 8:00 p.m. 4/27/05.

Since, I'm in PA, it could be here today, but I'm guessing it won't show up until tomorrow.
post #79 of 79
Just an FYI, anyone who ordered Tiger through the Up-To-Date program, your copy of Tiger will be shipping on Friday, not arriving on Friday, per Apple Customer Service. Kinda sucky...
