Simply because you’re alive you know the coveted iPhone 6 was released this weekend. People completely bought into the hype surrounding its release and went absolutely nuts for it. Apple made over 10 million – this weekend alone!
But while Americans were busy being Americans waiting in line to spend money on the newest technology, China was left all alone with their shitty old iPhones. The Chinese government decided to torture its people by waiting for “regulatory approval” – whatever that means. So instead of being patient (no one is anymore), the Chinese are paying $3,000-$4,000 for a smuggled, black-market phone. Insanity.
So where are these Chinese iPhone smugglers getting a ton of iPhones? New Haven. And they turned New Haven’s Apple store into a scene from West Side Story this morning.
What started as a small fight for a place in line turned into an all-out brawl with more than a dozen people. Three people were arrested (for being idiots). One poor soul was taken to the hospital. All over a stupid iPhone. Somewhere there’s a Yale freshman cowering in his room, crying about the terrible “gang violence” in New Haven.
