Is Apple wrong with the iPhone 5c?

If today, wednesday 18th september 2013, we go on the Apple US page, we can see that we can preorder an iPhone 5c with home delivery for 20th september.

Every color, with every memory and carrier combination is still available. The possible combinations are 50, and only ten of them are delayed by a week.

It’s possible that Apple has imported from China so many iPhone 5c (millions?) in all possible variants to avoid preorder problems? And some reports are saying that production is low due to some problems with camera modules.

If you remember what happened with the iPhone 5, the waiting list was long, people had to wait until december! The new iPhone 5c has been announced last week and it’s not sold out yet? Usually Apple sells millions of units in preorders. Maybe there are too many colors and people want to see which one looks better in their hands? Or maybe because if you pay just $100 more you can get the 5s that has a much better quality?

Update 2017: Imho it was a failure, otherwise they would have made the 6c, 7c, and so on

The least professional way to shutdown a service

On 30th august, the online notetaking service shut down for good.

How did I discover that? By reading this Springpad tweet! (from the competitors!)


They closed their service without sending an email to their users, they even didn’t tweet it!! Only reading a tweet by their competitor I got to know (3 days later) that they shut down the service!

Their latest public tweet is this retweet from their co-founder:

(A week before announcing the shutdown you boast about having 3.5 millions users? Bravo…)

And now? I lost 4 years of notes… thanks…

However, they aren’t the only one to behave like that. The TheOldReader guys on 5th august announced that they would have shutdown their website after two weeks. They didn’t send an email to their users also in this case. Hey, I’m in holiday vacation, I don’t check your blog everyday!!!
