    It's that time of year again, less than 24 hours from the release of the new iPhone. Most of the "Will I get it on the 25th?" feelings of uncertainty get washed away as these little packages of joy spread across the world. Arrangements get made to make sure their arrival is without disruption, as people take the day off, ask loved ones to be on duty or even divert packages to alternate locations.

    And then there are the true warriors of the iPhone release. Those who battle on the front lines, lining up at various stores in the dead of night to get their shot. They enjoy the comradery with fellow like-minded soldiers, all the while hiding their competitive concerns over the number of available units.

    Finally, the pinnacle is reached. You are staring down at a wonderfully simple white box adorned with a vibrant betta. The box is opened and the smell of an overworked Chinese assembler fills the room. Trust that he/she has worked harder than you ever will.

    After the initial excitement wears off, two groups will form. Those who love their device, unconditionally, and those who are determined to find a flaw. Dead pixels, warm or cool screens, yellow blotches, bendiness, camera alignments, battery life... on and on, almost hoping they can coin the next #gate phrase.

    Is it pink? Copper-esque? Pictures and reports will begin to flood the forums and social media. Videos will surface of people getting paid to commit horrendous acts against iPhones; dropping them, putting them in a blender, shooting them with a Glock etc.

    The day is nigh, my friends. Happy iPhone Eve.

    I skipped the 6, and since I've owned every iPhone prior to that, I'm sure this new form will be an adventure.

    Some will be unhappy, because their display has a slightly yellow tint and has 1 point less in geekbench score than the one in the review.

    Many will be unhappy when that new touch screen just drives them nuts.

    I decided to go on the 2-year cycle, with the S series. It certainly seems like the S models refine on the new form and work out the issues.

    I approve this tree due to the lack of Cook.

    This part made me literally lol.

    Then I felt bad for laughing.

    Then I laughed at myself for feeling bad.

    Funny, but sad, and probably partially true!

    My rest will be assured during tonight's sleep as my iPhone 6s preorder was delivered to my local store this morning.

    Best get some good rest tonight my fellow iPhoners, tomorrow will have some bleary eyed folks staying up most of the night to enjoy their prize.

    The thing that sucks: I'm running a half marathon at 7am Saturday, but I know I will want to stay up messing around with my phone.

    This was a fun little exercise. Oh boy…here we go:

    Twas the night before 6S
    When all through arn's house
    All the users are stirring
    Some using their mouse
    The devices are shipping by FedEx with AppleCare
    In hopes they'll arrive before the pope gets here

    The members are tearing each other to shreds
    While visions of 3D Touch danced in their heads
    And mama with her iPad, and I with my app,
    Had just charged up our batteries and headed for GAP

    When out on our street there arose such a clatter
    I slammed on my brakes to see what was the matter
    Right past my window it flew like a flash
    I turned right around; very nearly I crash

    The truck was a beast on the newly paved road
    Showed the muster of FedEx to my humble abode
    Was this the wondrous prize that I wish?
    It is! A miniature box with a tiny beta fish

    With a little old driver so lively and quick
    I knew in a moment it must be trucker Vick!
    More rapid than eagles from China he came
    And he whistled and shouted and asked me to…sign?



    That's not the whole poem,
    That last part doesn't rhyme!
    I guess I'll get going,
    While I'm still in my prime!

    Do yourself a big favor and don't open it tomorrow.

    Wait till after the the half marathon on Saturday, trust me, you will get to the finish line that much sooner. :)

    Who is getting tired? It's already 4pm here, and I think I need a forced nap via several whiskey and cokes. That will make tomorrow come quick!
