Hi,
Whoever thinks can beat me to the update is unfortunately mistaken.
Im in australia, it's 12:03 in the morning and everything is silent, I sit in a room with my updated IMac with my iPhone already plugged in. I'm staring at a wall and counting the seconds. Nothing and I repeat Nothing will stop me beating you all.

Ps I know how sad that is^


Isnt that incredible?
Good for you, friend!
Hope that makes you earn more money at your job (if you have one), hope that being the first to download it makes you famous! I am sure the whole world will stop just to congrats you. :)

Do any of you ask yourselves, 'i wonder if any of the folks at Apple who actually hit the 'go' switch read these boards?' I know I do. And, they probably just sit and laugh at us...

Be strong, man!
Remember the dude above us: he is doing all the efforts to be the first one to download IOS 5.
He's an example! Follow him!

Have you ever seen the movie "the shawshank redemption"?
He's that banker! Except for the rape thing...

Just... inspirational.
"I was the first one to download IOS 5"
Can you imagine it???

Actually you will need iTunes 10.5 gm they arent going to make people download a beta to get the official iOS 5 release.


I think it's better read:

"You will also likely need iTunes 10.5, ::COMMA:: beta 7 on Mac was about 85MB."

A reference to the size of the beta, not that beta would be distributed.

What a shame the death of the semicolon...
