I ordered a Mac OS Leopard family pack upgrade a few weeks ago and received two emails yesterday (26 Oct) telling me that Leopard would be shipped to my home by 26 Oct. Naturally I was very excited about it.
However up to today (27 Oct) I have yet to see any traces of this feline. To double-check, I logged in to my account page and was told that it had been shipped!
Which leads to two possible conclusions:
- The delivery man went to the wrong house and someone else is now in possession of my copy of Leopard.
- Leopard has not been delivered yet; due to the (possibly) high number of orders Apple has been unable to cope, yet their system isn’t well-synchronised and has informed many of us that our orders have been delivered when they haven’t.
Option 2 has happened to one of my previous orders and I am not surprised if nobody has bothered to improve this process since then. Apple Asia standards lag behind the US headquarters. I’ve found more broken links on the Asia website and wonder if Steve Jobs should shake things up a bit.
I have been holding on to the line for the past
few several minutes. I suspect that many other people are in the same situation, baffled by the emails informing them that Leopard has been delivered to them when it hasn’t.
Post a comment if you’re in the same situation as me! Misery loves company.
