  1. Apple on Monday announced they'd set a new record for iPhone pre-orders with over four million secured in the first 24 hours. Demand exceeded the company's initial pre-order supply although there are still a few ways to get your hands...

  2. iPhone is the Call of Duty of smartphone world. Even if Apple throws a brick it'll break the records. Good for them!

    No people.. I don't hate Apple.. just an observation.

    you know... "sheep" is a word to sescibe the masses of population... and since the masses of smart phone users (to the tune of 85% of all smartphones) are Android users... don't you mean driodSheep? are you just using the word "isheep" because your classmates do?

    Incorrect. "Sheep" has always described a sizable group of individuals who blindly follow a particular ideal, leader or trend. Your argument is invalid.

    For me iphone > android just because I detest the Java programing language.

    I'm Apple kind-of-a-hater, but I'm sure it's one of a kind software environment that will work for most. But my questions are: is it a record first day sale for iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus combined? If the latter, it's no record at all. Those are two different handsets, with second one taking hit at battery departement with more pixels to process, but taking lead at standby/screen-off time with bigger battery. Second, I could never understand people that buy something without having read some first time impressions/tests. Therefore I consider iSheep term for those waiting in queue for new toy fully deserved.

    Samsung had a phone out for while already thats better than the Apple . Apple said itself samsung is going the worng way with bigger size screen mockig the size. Now they fall in line and do exactly what they mocked samsung for . NOt to mention resolution and screen appearance is better on samsung regardless of size, apple has 720p bah, 720P!!!! haha a

    no sd card slot, not in a million yrs will aplle put one either. They asssume that will continue to work, they are wrong.
