This Is What Happens To Gold Standards

This is what happens to gold standards when a new, annual revision is announced and sold.

Apple PR:

Apple® today announced pre-orders of its iPhone® 5 topped two million in just 24 hours, more than double the previous record of one million held by iPhone 4S.

AT&T PR:

AT&T* set a sales record with iPhone 5 over the weekend, making it the fastest-selling iPhone the company has ever offered.  Customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model both on its first day of preorders and over the weekend.

  1. “Gold standard”? Right that’s what the stock is in the crapper and iphones sold were well under projections.

    Gold standard. Don’t equate the default option with the bechmark. Apple had raised the bar, but now they’re standing still as everyone (especially Samsung) sprints by.

    Frickin’ Apple iSheep. Totally unable to think critically or have an objective opinion beause you’re too caught up in the marketing and the supposed ‘magic’ of the brand.

    You know who falls for such marketing? Morons. Morons who only care about superficialities and ‘oooo! shiny!’ things. Shallow people, that’s who.
