    Interesting read. Would love to hear a longer, more in-depth article from a Genius member who works at a store and what goes into the planning and prep for events like this. Have to imagine it's non-stop controlled chaos for about a month straight that it'd be fascinating to get some insight into.

    I am SO glad to see that they are holding inventory for DOAs!

    I'm not queuing up (was lucky enough to get a 6+ preordered for Friday) but this may contain useful info for anyone who is queuing up (at least you'll know that you can't expect Apple staff on the scene until 5am anyway!).

    4%. That seems like a lot for DOA's! That's a high rate failure.

    This is a good and humorous look at what happens on the days leading up to the launch of a new Apple product at an Apple Store.

    Better to set aside too many than not enough, it's not like they won't sell later
