Check out this totally false story from the Register saying that iPhone was a massive flop in England and that nobody showed up to get them even though retailers had put on hundreds of extra staff to manage the crush. This is so absolutely untrue that I don’t even know where to begin. There were thousands of people lined up for days to get iPhone at virtually every retail outlet in England. Here’s just one shot of the massive throng outside one store. Better yet, this was the crowd in Manchester. And here is the massive crowd of people smashing into the Regent Street store once the doors opened.
Not sure how the hacks from the Register managed to miss it. Guess maybe they were down at the pub pulling a Denton — ie, getting hammered and mailing in the story without actually doing any reporting.
