    Apple screwed the pooch a bit here. Sure some people still pre-ordered and lined up, but I know several people, including myself, who switched because of the delays. Also after the last round, I think some Koreans were beginning to miss some of the “Korean” features of their phones. DMB TV, T money, things like that.

    And the value of waiting in those zombie fanboi lines is what? The chance to look cool? :mrgreen:

    Roles reversed, eh?

    Not that Jobs was such a bad guy; but the 1984 commercial was aimed at IBM–and now Apple has replaced IBM. Unfortunately, there’s no hot chick with a hammer these days. Just more theaters full of zombies.

    Should you buy an iPhone5? Maybe not.
