 Yup... that's the reason... uh huh... yesiree... ... oh boy. By the way... if the 5 was such a nightmare to produce why did Apple go back to the same design to build the 5s? 
 I think somebody got confused... Fadell has been called the Father of the iPod by some of the press while at the same time Rubinstein was know as the Podfather.
 In the US it was running #3 on all carriers about 2 months ago but it's hard to say where it stands now. I suspect the Cannacord numbers will be out again soon. As far as the success rate of the 5c in China and other parts of Asia... I'd guess that it is sitting about #5 or #6. Europe, maybe #4 or #5. Whether the US, Asia or Europe...

 I went to a dance show at one of the local high schools. Middle to upper middle. Almost all the girls that I saw in the audience, and I'm talking 120-150, were hanging onto phones. I saw a few 5, a few 5s, a few flavors of Samsung, a 4 or 4s or two, an HTC... but not one 5c... and I was looking hard (MOM!! What's that creepy old dude looking at??!!). Most of the parents seemed to be holding onto one type of iPhone or another with a few Samsungs in the mix. I expected to...
 Uh, no... what matters more is the effect the ad has on sales. Up is good... sideways and down are bad.
 You haven't been around that long, have you... (unless I have mistaken what it is that you are saying)
 Oh.. so the 5c doesn't look or feel premium? This just gets better and better.
