 Hello?? This just got released today... and you expect to search Google and find shit??
Apple's getting better at muti-country launches; either simultaneously or in tight stages. I can not imagine what a feat that must be.
Sometimes a customer who has great utility out of a well-made product gets it in their head that it's the same as the commodity products and believes they can save money and still have that same experience. It's not until they experience what a commodity product really is that they realize they didn't save anything. It's like that old Texaco commercial from the 1950s where the station attendant comes out onto the stage holding a clogged and dripping oil filter and says,...
Selling is forgetting that people have wants and needs. For example a man walks into a hardware store and asks for a quarter-inch drill bit.

Apple could be asked to post a bond, as Samsung did in the case I mentioned before, and that would be a more reasonable remedy....
 You are onto something there... I always gave the customer enough information so they could make an emotional decision while thinking it was an informed one.
