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. :)
