After reading some of the threads on here you would think that Scalpers are making Apple lose legitimate customers by buying up supplies while real fans aren't able to get their hands on something. In another thread someone went so far as to say Apple lost his money because the scalpers were in line so he couldn't get a phone, so he would wait until the next model or switch to Android. To me a lot of this seems absolutely hysterical and insane. While scalping is ANNOYING because you want something for yourself and you cant get it because of them, I can't imagine anyone "giving up" on Apple because they couldn't get the most in demand piece of tech in the world on the first day. I mean seriously, the phone is going to be sold all year! To the people who say this stuff, I ask: Why does it mean that if you cant get it on the first day you're going to wait until next year to get try to get the next model. Does it make sense to change ecosystems and dump one you like and have invested in because you can't wait a day or a week for the model you want? A month ago we had no idea what the release date could have been, so its not like Apple "owes" us a release date of Sept 19th. What if they announced that its coming out in November? Would that have also made you wait until next year's model or jump to android? I wonder if people who say this stuff also boycott movies if they cant get into the premiere or skip dinner if they're not the first ones served at the table. Hopefully in a couple weeks sanity will be restored. P.S. I did get an iPhone 6 on release date but if I didn't I would have waited until they're back in stock or I could get one online. Luckily for me, on Sept 19th Apple DIDN'T send out a kill switch signal to my working iPhone 5 which would have necessitated a release date upgrade or face not having a phone at all.
