The iPhone Upgrade Fiasco

And to think, I ALMOST stayed up so I could pre-order the iPhone 4 as soon as it became available. 🙂

As expected, it’s damn near impossible to pre-order the iPhone.. Server problems, authentification issues, etc. I’ve been trying on and off since 8am this morning, and I’m still unable to do it.

Even worse, Apple isn’t releasing the white version of the phone on the 24th, which has Apple fanboys losing their shit! (I have no idea why, I think the white phone looks pretty ugly..)

C’mon Apple and AT&T – You’ve had months to prepare for this onslaught of traffic, and you’ve managed to screw the pooch! Most major etailers prepare for their busy Christmas seasons (specifically Black Friday / Cyber Monday) month in advance, so they aren’t caught with their pants down on D-Day..

Why didn’t you think to do the same?

    Well, I was finally able to order my iPhone this morning, but because of all the problems, I ended up missed out on the June 24th delivery date.

    Now it says my order will ship on July 2nd. Sucks, but that’s life. 🙁
