I can understand why 90% of the world would disagree because they're jealous of our success. Especially Great Britain 'cause we beat those bastards 235 years ago. So if the US isn't the greatest country in the world, then could you please name one that's better? Those statistics you've used are just completely and utterly wrong, my fellow Apple fan. If it wasn't for the US, the world wouldn't even have an innovative company like Apple 'cause we're the only ones that believe in free enterprise, it is in this type of economy that innovation becomes a strategy for competition.
    well said!! i don't see people crossing deserts and riding a 57 chevy across the sea to get into any other country...

    Best of all in South Africa... when you call the Vodashops to ask when stock will arrive, they all give you a different answer - (EVEN AT THE SAME SHOP!) like "next week sir" / "we dont' know sir" / "the stock has been allocated sir, it's on it's way here sir"
    So far the best answer I got was from a guy at an iPhone shop, he said stock will arrive at the end of August..........yeeeee haaah WTF I've been waiting for 2 months now!!!!! Very FRUSTRATING.

    This actually makes me feel a little sorry for other countries. I mean, I'm glad that I have mine but it kinda sucks that Apple chooses to give preference to the country whose exclusive carrier is the one who locks the phone down the hardest and doesn't support many of the new OS 3.0 features. Yet.

    ...but still I've gotten tired of holding my breath.

    The problem is that so many people have an iPhone that it's hard not to know somebody with an iPhone and be totally jealous of it. So here, especially in such a commercially over-saturated culture like we have in America, pretty much everybody I know wants one. Or has one.

    It's a surprise AT&Ts stock isn't doing better, considering how much money they're raking in on iPhone data plans and subscribers jumping ship from their previous carriers to get one. Might be a good time to buy stock...and finally have a reason to unhide my Stocks App icon for the first time in ages...
