Who else in the group plans to preorder on Friday? +Shawn Sieg?

My current plan is to place my preorder at 3am (like I have with iPhones in the past) for the 42mm Space Gray Sport model with the black sport band and select to pick it up at the Apple Store in Ann Arbor on the 24th.

I am hoping that these are true pre-orders, meaning my watch is guaranteed to be available for pickup. With some product launches in the past, Apple did not make that guarantee, as limited quantities were available, so there were two lines at the store: one for preorders, one for walk-ins. Even the preorders were first-come, first-serve...

Android/iOS: The popular traffic app Waze has been a lifesaver for many commuters. If its already long list of cool features wasn’t enough, the app will now tell you how long you can expect to be stuck in traffic.

There are lots of easy-to-use apps that allow you to generate 3D models of physical objects using just your smartphone’s camera. But when it comes to calculating the exact size of an object, those same apps are actually pretty inaccurate. They don’t have to be, though, because researchers at Carnegie Mellon have found a way to boost measurement accuracy using additional data from a mobile device’s built-in motion sensors.

More info on the demos and preorders. Who else plans to make the purchase?
To ensure as many people as possible get to try on the Apple Watch, before likely going home to place their own pre-order for the device, Apple will allow for the booking of in-store appointments that will see customers able to wear the smartwatch – beginning April 10.

Do you think you'll go that route still if preorders are available in the morning? Or have other sources confirmed the later preorder time? I have no idea how quickly the preorders will fill and want to make sure I receive my watch on the 24th.

We will be sending an email and creating an event soon, but this is a notice that our April meeting will take place on May 1 in TAFR from 10-11:30am. The primary focuses of the meeting will be on the Apple Watch (as it will be released by then) and final prep for our Enriching Scholarship session.

Thank you for being flexible and we'll see you on May 1!

How did the preorders go last night? I was fortunate enough to get my order completed by 3:04am through the Apple Store iPhone app. It appears that many of the styles sold out quickly (within minutes) for delivery on the 24th. From what I've read, no confirmation emails only list April 24th: they all say 4/24-5/8. Tim had been quoted in saying that the first shipments will be delivered on the 24th, so hopefully that's still the case!

+Lauren Atkins, +Josh Budde, +Joshua Tishhouse, +Shawn Sieg, and I have posted a few comments on Facebook/Twitter, but I wanted to bring it to this group, as well.
