    Default Small tip for those staying up tonight...

    Google Chrome + Page Monitor (or Auto Refresh) = no need to manually refresh + sound when page changes (Page Monitor)

    Haven't set it up yet, will be doing it at home. Feel free to try it out.

    I signed up for the notification email. It'll be interesting to see if that arrives any time near when it actually goes on sale or somewhere down the road after they've sold out.

    It's pretty much confirmed that it will be midnight PST, as the launch here is at 9am. Good luck!

    Works great. Anyone doing this, just make sure to go to Extensions settings and enable Desktop Notifications, as well as decrease Check Interval from 3 hrs to whatever internal you want.

    Well it basically is actually. Because the German spokesperson of Google actually tweets at the moment from California, so he's probably getting the data directly from the source.
    And since 9am here = midnight PST, it makes perfect sense.

    Germany / USA..... two totally different countries there sir. The only time that has been confirmed is Germany's sale time. Google usually does USA sales based on EST, not PST.

    Well, I would normally agree with you because that's usually the way I see it as well, but it would be a really strange coincidence that the PST time happens to be midnight when the sales go live.
    They could basically launch it whenever they wanted, even at midnight here, but because they aren't doing it makes me strongly believe that they'll try to make this a "world wide" release at the same time.

    Set an alarm for 2:55 am. Go back to bed after ordering.

    I still have no clue, I've asked internally and no one seems to know. Nexus Support has no clue (they sometimes know, but won't say, but in this case they truly don't know yet, so please, don't bombard them with calls tonight)

    I would hope that out of all the companies in the world, Google would be able to stay afloat with this traffic.

    Maybe not, is not like Google servers have to deal with a lot of traffic every millisecond of every day
