I’m getting more and more annoyed about this closing down of the store 6 hours prior to pre-order thing. It’s ridiculous.

It’s worse than annoying when we can’t even set up the pre-order to be ready at 8am EST.

We needed to pre-set the pre-order before the pre-launch Apple Store pre-shutdown.

Silly of us to not understand that.
