    I'm only going to be really disappointed if it isn't before Thanksgiving, but I also was hoping for today.

    UPDATE: It is being reported that iOS servers have gone down and up repeatedly this morning!

    UPDATE 2: 4.2.1 released to developers just now. How soon to general release?

    Welcome to the forum!

    Even though this place is called the "Apple iPad Forum", this is a private forum and we only share our name with the company and the product. We are not a part of the company and have no inside information about what this guy is thinking --

    We find out about this kind of stuff the way everyone else does... by reading about it on the Internet!

    Maybe the servers can't handle all those people downloading Beatles albums!

    I would be on my hands and knees, frozen in place. We will enjoy looking at your photos though. :)

    OK, last post on this... I promise!

    If you look really close at the picture... what is one thing you do NOT see hanging around anyone's neck???

    They do not allow cameras on the skywalk! But of course they will be more than happy to take a picture of you on the skywalk and sell it to you!

    Is this the **3rd GM? I hope so because the 2nd one wasn't as 'fixed' as they thought.

    I hope to drive West in Sept. and visting the Grand Canyon and waling on the cat walk is at the top of the list. I look forward to hearing how you like it.
