Cant you all see the obvious, its a NZ thing.

NZ management cant organise a booze up in a brewery.

Every other country launched fine.

Cant even properly manage how to do a press release,take pre orders or run a website.

All this marking around will be forgotten once I get my iPhone 4. I'm told that it can fly airplanes and spacestations, and it has a direct dial number for Jesus. Can't wait. :>

For all you fellow Auckland Westies, I just rang JB Hifi Westgate. They won't be selling them today, and they have no idea when they will have them either.

Those are only services available to AT&T customers.

The hotline to Jeebus is available "soon" by wifi.

Not that anyone cares except me, but someone seriously needs to do some formal investigative journalism into this scandal.

Seriously.

People can say "it's just a farking phone - get over it!"

People can say that this is an orchestrated PR campaign.

The fact is that hundreds of people have been shafted by Apple and/or Vodafone in relation to this in terms of time wasted both online and in real life waiting in line.

WTF? Telling people who queued this morning that launch is cancelled only to relaunch at 12pm?

Way to screw people over. Well played.

Personally I'm not affected by the queueing as I didn't/won't queue. But this is farking ridiculous.

JimmyC: If VF is holding back stock whilst they repair a deal with Apple I'll be extremely pissed.


But still buy one from them later...
