    Heres a question for everyone (and sorry if I should know this, but I haven't seen it anywhere). Wasn't there suppose to be a native IM app coming in 3.0...? I haven't heard anything about this since the keynote.


    Edit: Just did some searching. It was the Meebo client. Did this get trashed...? I was really excited for this because I HATE the AIM app. Terrible terrible app.

    Okay, just did some digging.
    I guess it's not being released with 3.0 anymore (which was kind of obvious) and it will be released later this year.
    Kind of lame.

    Which would be about 6pm UK time...

    Understandable that Asia and Australia won't be released till the 18th as per their Apple sites.

    Wow. Apple really is trying to kill their servers. A midnight release, even if it did crash things, would have meant that the general user populace would have had a much easier time. I mean, they wouldn't have been shoved out by all us geeks who just had to have it.

    It's a prank -- in most browsers now, you can "inspect element", type in 18 instead of 17, and reload the page. I just tested this, and with a simple screenshot it can appear as saying June 18th.

    So, until the majority of the day passes, I wouldn't lose hope

    Same here. Also, all the markets they quoted are the ones that apple has to....restrict things with.

    its not a prank its idiots not knowing the difference in dates/time zones and that the 18th page is the freaking Singapore page.

    9am PST on june 17th is 12:00am june 18th in Singapore

    if people actually bothered to pay attention the the very subtle diffrences in the url they might understand this. but then again oh im just going to shut up now before i say something to insult 98% of the world

    if they are outsourcing their help desk in India for example it would be released much earlier in the day. But because they are waiting for their help desk to open 9 am EST or so this is why they are holding it.

    hey guys.. here in singapore the release date for the update would only be at 18th june. Thus something tells me that it would only be release after 12pm (new york time), this is as singapore time is directly opposite from new york.. thus 12am here in sg = 18th june... just sharing my thoughts ^.^
