 Sure makes it difficult to guess how the lineup will look next year. Last year it was quite easy to see that the 5C would drop to the bottom with the 5S in the middle and then a larger phone at the top (I really didn't expect Apple to put 2 large phones at the top). Next year gets more difficult because Apple would face the same problem as last year if it put plastic versions of the 6 and 6+ in the middle... but even more problems if Apple put the 6 and 6+ in the...
 Okay, you're right. The Chinese Americans are really well organized. Arriving in 2 to 4 buses carrying 30-40 people each. All with handfuls of $100 bills.
 Of course, as usual, you do not read. I said that we will never know how well a 4" iPhone 6 would sell. Do you know how well it would sell? 12-14 million? Are these phantom phones? Apple has nothing left to sell.
 It would be great if we could find out how the 5S sells in this quarter. If Apple puts a 6C at the bottom of the lineup next year then that means the 4" phone is toast. We'll never know how well an iPhone 6 mini would have sold.
 ... and you say that with absolutely no proof. We've been through this already.
 I was told by several people on here that Apple will just build more plants if it wants more phones and that this manufacturing constraint is planned. In other words... Apple doesn't want to sell any more than 10 million phones over the launch weekend. (I think the 9 million number from last year included every phone that Apple could make at the time... the whole idea being that Apple would sell every one of those phones... which it didn't)
... 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...
