It was a LONG night last night and it all started at 6PM Mountain Time, which is 1AM in the UK. There we were, thousands of us in our PJ’s, patiently waiting to give Apple $30 for the next big cat. 1AM came and went without a single Lion spotting. Bummer. All of a sudden everyone thought maybe it was supposed to happen at 1AM GMT, so again we waited and again, nothing at 1AM.
That’s when the App Store went down!
Finally, what we were all waiting for! Twitter was buzzing and it was world-wide. All of the App Stores were down! After an hour the US Store was back up, but NO LION. Now it was just a waiting game, Lion was locked & loaded and all that was left was for Steve Jobs to flip the on switch. Hours went by, NO LION.
Then it happened, someone posted this pic:
Holy crap! We’re getting it, we’re getting it. Well, not so much. A hack Photoshop job had all the waiters in a frenzy, including and especially me. So here I sit at 6:31AM hoping for a Hail Mary pass from Cupertino, a 7/14 launch of Lion. The Apple Stores haven’t opened on the East Coast so it’s still possible that the new hardware might just contain the beast we’ve been chasing all night.
NO LION, yet, but I’m still hopeful!
