  1. I’m wondering why there’s no midnight release here in the U.S. like a blockbuster or Harry Potter or PS3? ‘Cause Apple doesn’t want fevered fans start calling up all the iPhone-less people at 1 or 2 AM to gloat and create a negative image?

  2. as for “late midnight launches” I would imagine, as most Apple Stores are inside of shopping malls, and not free-standing buildings that is the reason why they start selling in the morning instead of night. Who knows, it could just be because Steve wants to sleep lol.
