I was just joking about the apology. But yes, both sides can go back and forth with argument and debate, but its true that both sides are merely speculating at this moment since Apple has been so hush about it (which would further prove my point) but alas, we shall see.You're missing my point. If they are available to ship ahead of time to best buy stores in time for launch day, they would have been available to ship ahead of time to consumers also. It makes no sense for Apple to hold out on the consumer. They would rather have people on their site, and in their stores than in best buy.
Perplex, we'll just agree to disagree and see what happens Thursday.
And nobody will owe you an apology for voicing their opinion.
You are correct, my mistake. kk:Whether this turns out to be true or not, there is no "fact of the matter." There is only opinion on both sides.
if no white iPhone on iDay, i will make a thread sincerely apologizing to all for being so innaccurate. But why would it be a mess if white iPhones are released on iDay? They only mad people are the ones who were too impatient and went ahead and ordered black when the website EXPLICITY stated not available for preorder or reservation. Entailing, you should have waited. Also, that's another reason why they are hush on the subject. Because they are still releasing both colors on iDay. I believe Apple would have said something by now if, and only if, there was not going to be ANY whtie iPhones on iDay. but since there will be, they are able to stay hush on the subject because they would be sticking to their word at what was said @ wwdc.What do the doubters get when there isn't white on launch day?
I appreciate how much you want this, I'm just not blinded by optimism the way you are. I can't even conceive of the mess we'll see on Thursday if people start walking out of stores with white phones. The preorder thing was messy enough already. They'd piss more people off by having them than they would disappoint by not having them.. not that I think they're making any conscious decisions based on that.
That being said, I believe that's why Apple advised bestbuy to STOP taking preorders for white (before they stopped taking preorders altogether) because it wasn't fair. BUT they didn't tell them to make them change the orders to black, at least they didn't to me. Anyways, ill stop here. Maybe im too optimistic, but i think im just being logical here. We shall wait and see
