Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

The people lined up are scalpers buying multiple iPhones to resell on the Chinese black market. It doesn't indicate an insatiable demand.

In Australia we've had recent a massive surge in sales of baby formula. There hasn't been a baby boom - rather it is being bought by Chinese students and shipped back to be sold on the black market.
