You know what chaps my ass about some of these tech blogs is that they do the stupidest tests on new iPhones. Drop tests, shatter tests, .50 cal sniper rifle tests, liquid nitrogen tests... Freaking idiots like this are why nobody can get an iPhone 6 Plus because morons keep buying them and destroying them.

They should do the steamroller test, and the drop from a commercial airliner test.

There are maybe a few dozen phones being destroyed here. That is hardly the reason why people didn't get the phone they wanted.

The scalpers in the line at my store alone add up to at least ten times the units I couldn't get versus a few guys breaking phones for entertainment.

Click bait, kind of like your post title. You could say I fell for it, but I expected what was coming. They end up making back their money several times over on views from ad impressions, so it's good business. You should have gotten up at 2am like the rest of us.

We're talking about a product that's being produced and sold in the millions, and you think a dozen or so people online buying units to experiment on (some of which, like the drop tests, actually provide useful information to consumers) is affecting your ability to get one?

I'd be more concerned about the people buying them in bulk to send over seas for profit, or flipping them on eBay for three times what they're worth.

I did. Preordered at 2:55 on Verizon.

Maybe that means they are worth three times what we are paying for them and Apple just wants to sell a bargain product! :eek: :p

Ok. You complained about nobody being able to get them. I would assume that nobody included you. Otherwise there is nothing to complain about here.
