    Actually the counter stopped at 11:45 central time. Was watching it myself. Unless their website counter was extremly off because it was counting at about 1k a second to 3k a second when it was almost done.

    Either that... or it's simply luck. The point is I don't trust China.

    Maybe it was a Foxconn worker.

    He made the iDevice by stealing one piece at a time.... (Like the Johnny Cash song, where he steals parts off of the assembly line for years and years, until he has all the parts and creates his dream car that he could have never afforded from the pay he received from GM.)

    With his iDevice created, and desperately wanting to play the five star hit water game by Disney.... he spent all of the wages he had earned working at Foxconn for the last 8 years, enabling him to afford the .99 cent app. Which, ultimately won him the $10,000 iTunes gift card.

    After learning one of their workers had won the $10,000 gift card, Foxxcon knew that there was no possible way one of their employes could have ever bought a iDevice, and therefore knew he must be a thief.

    As the winner slept, holding his custom made iDevice, loaded with $10,000 of digital content tightly to his chest, Foxconn security burst into his tiny room, and ripped the device from his body.

    Foxconn security was ordered to chop of both of the mans hands, so he could never use the device he had spent years creating, or play the game he spent his life savings on.

    As the man laid on the floor, bleeding profusely, his hands removed from his body, Foxconn employees continued to torture the man as he laid in a pool of his own blood. They logged into his iTunes account, and forced him to watch as they spent all $10,000 of his itunes award on "NewsStand" subscriptions. This complete waste of money was to hard to watch. He could cope with having no hands, being labeled a criminal, and spending the rest of his life in a prison very similar to his work place.

    But the thought of all of his award money being wasted on "Newstand" was to much to bare. His will to live left his body, his heart stopped, his soul, along with his will to live... left him....and his lifeless body fell to the floor. His 46 "roommates" went back to bed.

    The government controlled Chinese media aired the entire event. They labeled the man a dirty thief, the people agreed, and cheered his death.

    You can't say that. It's a straight fact the device is more unstable. I have been jailbreaking since the beginning, and I'm a cyberdefense specialist. All I have on my jailbroken iPhone 4S and iPad 2 are Tether Me and My3G. My springboard crashes every couple days or so. I don't even have themes, or any of the extra crap for it. Honestly, I would say your like 90% of this forum and have no idea what your talking about.
