iPhone 5 Pre-Orders Top Two Million in First 24 Hours


Apple® today announced pre-orders of its iPhone® 5 topped two million in just 24 hours, more than double the previous record of one million held by iPhone 4S. Demand for iPhone 5 exceeds the initial supply and while the majority of pre-orders will be delivered to customers on September 21, many are scheduled to be delivered in October.

So disappointing, this phone. So boring and underwhelming.

iPhone 5 Pre-Order Sells Out 20X Faster Than 4 And 4S

Billy Gallagher, TechCrunch:

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live at midnight and, true to form, they went like hotcakes. You may remember that it took 22 hours for the iPhone 4S and about 20 hours for the iPhone 4 to sell out of its pre-order, launch-day stock.

The iPhone 5 took just about 60 minutes. Yep. One hour after pre-orders went live, Apple.com adjusted shipping expectations from one to two weeks due to the overwhelming demand.

Ladies and gentlemen, Apple’s latest “disappointing” phone.

Noisy in a Movie Theater? The Theater Ninjas Will Find You

Devin Faraci, Badass Digest:

But a theater in London is upping the ante, introducing black-clad ninjas into their theaters to deal with talkers and texters. The Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square has a team of volunteers wearing all black lycra Morphsuits; in exchange for free movies the volunteers sit in the darkest parts of the theater, waiting for rude people to begin talking or texting, and then they descend upon them like black wisps of nightmare.

We totally need these at The Mall Cineplex. Imagine it—you’re watching a movie, minding your own business, then you hear some annoying person talk on their phone. Then suddenly, a shriek and abrupt silence.

And you lean back a bit more in your seat and smile.

I just preordered the Limited Deluxe Box Set, Amory Award Edition of The Afterman, which is gonna be signed by the band. I am beyond psyched.
