Atacama

Slow

Earlier today, when I was fooling around with Apple pricing, I tried to check out of the Apple Store with my purchase.

However, I forgot my Apple ID password. So, I clicked on the Reset Password link.

Just over four hours later, I received the promised E-mail in my inbox. Here's a quote from this E-mail:

"Please note that this link will expire 3 hours from the time it was sent."

How useful! Offer to reset a customer's password, but don't send the mail until an hour after it expires. Yay.

Update: As Chris points out below, the problem isn't Apple's, but Yahoo's.
