As far as the supply issue...Apple should just have on of their Chinese Suppliers just build another factory and Fedex should lease another 747. I mean China is building so fast it's on the scale of building a city the size of San Francisco EVERY DAY!
Their economy has grown, on average, 10% a year for the last 30 years!
And in their spare time they can build a CDMA factory for a Verizon iPhone!
There, problem(s) solved!
