Privoxy:
fab: I rang Acquire too, missed by three people. I bought mine as soon as it opened up too!

Not going to lose any sleep over it, but would have been real nice.

As per others would be rapt to buy someone's 'spare' if there's one going.


Order number?

From Reddit:

Managed to be the first to order from Acquire but it looks like their account system doesn't have session handlers and somehow 6 others ordered a total of 20 devices from my account.

Called them and they told me that it's fine, and I was first to get in, but they actually have no idea how much stock they have so it might be a while ಠ_ಠ

Just got this

Thank you for order this morning. We received hundreds of orders this morning and we do not have enough stock allocation to fulfill all of the orders.  Unfortunately your order was not successful and will be cancelled shortly in our system.

Same here.  Acquire can get stuffed. When an item goes into your basket it should be allocated. Don't advertise stock and then say "oh we need to find out how much stock we can get" False advertising i reckon.  It had 90 remaining when I ordered.  Total BS!

I wonder how quick you actually had to be, I was f5ing, had an account pre made and my credit card details all copy pasta. I would say my order was in within 25-30Seconds of the price change.

FFS.
