... and even more data from Fiksu:   http://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2014/09/21/latest-iphone-6-and-6-plus-usage-survey-and-updated-lead-times/   (If you read this article then you might want to read the article below it that has data from Piper Jaffray showing the number of people in line at the 5th Ave. store over the past few years)
Which doesn't seem to jive with this report:   "More buyers are picking Apple Inc. (AAPL:US)’s iPhone 6 Plus over the iPhone 6 in this debut weekend, according to a Piper Jaffray Cos. survey, and supplies of the larger model already are selling out in some U.S. stores. The iPhone 6 Plus is “more popular,” Gene Munster, an analyst for Piper Jaffray in Minneapolis, said in a report today. The survey of 386 Apple customers waiting in line in Minneapolis and New York...
Just saw this little tidbit from another site:   "Apple’s new iPhone 6, released just over 13 hours ago in the U.S., has already hit 2.86% of all iPhone activity worldwide, as measured by Mixpanel which tracks the actions users take in an application – 26 billion of them per month. iPhone 6 Plus, which is facing severe supply constraints, stands at 0.52%.   These figures are remarkable. It took 10 days after launch for iPhone 5s to hit 2.67% and iPhone 5c to hit...

 The back didn't come off the phone... that was packaging.
 Okay... If everything you say is true then how do you know that Munster guessed wrong?
 ... and, by the way... anyone that has followed my posts (why they would is beyond me) would know that I was not actually making a connection between long lines and the stock price... at least not in the way that Mr. Internet Stock Guru implied. Quite the opposite actually. My point being that long lines and increased demand don't necessarily mean a higher stock price... because the whole system is quite illogical at times. ... but since he/she just jumped right in and...
 ... or, at least in the face of the reality on AI. Either way... it's swimming upstream.
 Well... actually... that was going to be the next question.  lol Since I never said anything about knowing how the market works... I thought Mr. Internet Stock Guru could tell us the answer to both questions. (I mean... if you really are asking me then I'd say it's all horseshit... and that there are no real rules other than some illogical determination made by some very wealthy influences... so why not line-ups at Apple stores...  lol)
 Let's not forget the part where I mentioned "demand". 4 million preorders in 24 hours is a fairly good indication of demand. ... but, since, in this person's mind, demand does not affect the price of a stock, let's go further... I was actually waiting for Mr. Internet Stock Guru to explain to us what is intrinsically different about Apple to have the stock valued at over $101 today as opposed to $56 just over a year ago. What has changed so much at Apple to almost double...
