It was a late 80s model convertible. I can't say I remember it well.

Sooo yeah, my local Best Buy got 10 phones in today, and NONE of the 64gb models. Really Apple? 10 phones?

I hate how companies release a new product and REFUSE to make/provide enough to get over the initial consumer buyout. If your phone sells out on the online preorder in an hour, YOU'RE GONNA SELL A LOT OF PHONES! Why on Earth would a company NOT want to sell a ton of phones and make a ton of money in only a few days time?

Rant rant rant, blah blah blah. I'm prolly gonna be upset about the same thing when the new xbox comes out. Stupid exclusivity.

Buy a Galaxy s3 and stop being so caught up in Apples crap.

Samsungs new commercial is the greatest. I chuckled at all the isheep.

Production bottlenecks probably, maybe poor forecasting.

Enjoy the Apple Maps, people - they're very...um...creative!

Go Android, I was caught in the IPHONE thing until I had issue after issue with my first one 3S and 4.... I have gone to the apple store for issues 18 times.... I finally went with a droid and not a issue, runs great, updates 100% of the time. never had a issue. I will always be a droid person now.

I love mine! Got in via FedEx Friday. Apple makes nice crap coming from the 4, I couldn't be more thrilled.

Fiance's Droid isn't half as refined or user friendly. That's just my experience though. That new Samsung commercial is obnoxious. I don't want to carry a mini-tablet around. I saw one "in the wild" and it's just kinda redonkulous.

Got mine on Friday as well and it's a great phone. Perfect? Nope, but great. I love the iPhone vs. Android war. Everybody thinks theirs is better. Neither is better. They each cater to different people who have different needs. That's the beauty of competition, the consumer wins and everyone can find an option that fits them.

And for those that call people who enjoy Apple products "iSheep," they're just hypocrites. I used to LOVE Android and there was even a time when I salivated for a new Nexus phone or a new Cyanogenmod release. Trust me, if I'm a sheep now, I was very much a sheep back then too. Fact is, we're all sheep following the products we love. As I said before, the beauty of it is that we all (or most of us) can have a product we love to follow.

I like apple's map. I wouldn't try to drive in Tahiti or some remote place using it but it is fun.
I just updated my ipad to ios 6. Not sure I'd be getting an iphone soon though.

Consumers around the world just dumped a whole bunch of money into the US economy (GDP up to .6%) because of the iphone alone. YAH! we're making a profit! Whatever side of iphone v android war you're on, it's a win win.

Lol until Apple decides to make the screen bigger again and then all the sudden it's the greatest ever.

That's how its always been. Android leads then the apple users always naysay it until apple follows suit.

Samsungs commercial is nothing but truth.
