iPhone 4S launches in US, Woz waits in line


 US Apple stores have started selling iPhone 4S since 8 AM this morning. As expected people have been in line at many stores  around the country since yesterday. MacRumors reported over a 100 people in line at Apple’s Shibuya store 11 hours before launch time and a 100 people in line at the Paris store. Additionally, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T store will also carry iPhone 4S today. Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Sam’s Club are also expected to carry some.  NBC11 reports that Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, showed up at his local Apple store on Thursday and said he would wait there overnight, although he had two phones coming to his house.

BuisnessWeek yesterday reported that iPhone 4S was sold out on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint online stores. They are offering shipping times of 3 to 4 weeks up from 1 to 2 days.

Smell that funk?


An exploding iPod in a Japanese subway, how embarrassing for Apple! This comes after the fact that the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has already urged Apple to replace iPods made between September 2005 and December 2006 due to reported incidents of overheating, causing fires and minor burns.

AppleGirl, no need to reference Antennagate here.  An 8 min delay on a Japanese subway should say enough, considering 2 mins on their  books is a train behind schedule.


GoogleChic, I just got a tip from one of my buddies at Apple and confirmed the new rumor around the mill!

The burning Apple product on the Japanese train was an iPuff, a top-secret (and dare I say patented!) new sensation. Apple secretly released it to a select few for field testing.My sources indicate that the iPuff will be released on Feb 29, 2011.

In the meantime, maybe I can snag a few from my buddy. GoogleChic, want one? 😉
