    When the gold phone rumors started, there was considerable chuckling and eye rolling on the forums and blogs.

    And now it's the hottest ticket.

    Clearly Apple still has the (golden) touch when it comes to making things people will go crazy for, before they even realize they want it.

    Plaid would be new if they did that, but it wouldn't sell. They knew exactly what they were doing with gold.

    The reason why is all the gold haters noticed today that gold is in demand! They felt validation (they aren't confident enough to go with it unless other people do) and they pulled the trigger. Morons.

    They have been making threads on here for the last two weeks asking questions like "What color should I get?"
    "Is gold girly?"
    "Do I put the tampon in my butt or my ear?"

    lol, they appealed to a lot of people's quirky sides, I suppose.

    Actually the "black" option is space gray and not black and slate like last year.

    Much lighter shade of black. So no, options aren't the same.

    Since you have no idea how many gold were built, you have no idea if it is 'the hottest ticket'.
