The iPhone 5 went on pre-order at 12:01am PDT on the Apple StoreApp. The online store went online about 50 minutes later. Now the Apple StoreiPhone 5 product pages already reflect a 2 week shipping time frame. Initially it said September 21. This effective one week delay is shown in the US Apple Store as well as on the European Apple Stores.
The demand for the iPhone 5 was predicted to be really high. It might be even crazy high if Apple had produced a significant amount of iPhone 5 devices in the first wave.
I entered my iPhone 5 pre-order on the German Apple Store, just when the Apple Store went online. My order confirmation already reads: ready for shipment: 2 weeks. Apple is usually ever pessimistic with shipping estimates. So I hope things still change and I receive the iPhone 5 on release day or shortly after.

Gwyneth Paltrow facing Lawsuit
The famous actress and creator of a website named Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, is facing a lawsuit by a man who claims she plagiarized his creative phrase. And she is also concerned about her ex-husband’s new relationships.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
