Tiger Up-to-Date buyers get the shaft?

Judging from the postings on the thread for Tiger Shipping, and from my own experience, it would seem that anyone who purchased an "up-to-date" version of Tiger will have to wait to get our hands on it. Just wanted to say that that sucks and blows at the same time. My powerbook will have to wait for it's update. I hope it's soon though. Just letting off some steam.

I'm in the same boat, the apple store still shows the order as "processing" even though the estimated ship date was on or before today. Oh well, for $11.99 it's ahrd to complain! Was hoping to dive into Tiger this weekend, but I suppose I'll have to get on with Real Life instead ! -- oh wait, no I don't after all, I'll go home and play in my studio instead! LOL

Seems that way. I'll bet that the bean counters at Apple realized that there were more Up-to-Date Tiger buyers than supposed to be and they're trying to figure out a way to route out the bad apples. Hmmm....I wish them luck.

Mines still at customs in Quebec. So much for "get it on the 29th"!

04/29/05 - my order just shipped via Up-To-Date program. I didn't have it by April 29th, but it at least shipped on its promised date. Woot. As mguertin stated, it's hard to complain if you're paying just $14 for a kick-ass piece of software, no matter when it ships.

called Apple twice today, response "only retail package is promised to be delivered on 29th, not up-to-date".
