I don't think Steve dying will have any affect on demand for the iPhone.
It's possible that it WILL have an affect on the stock for Apple.

Agreed, Steve was the reason the company did as well as it did. When they kicked him out in the 80's the company almost went broke. Bringing him back was the smartest thing they ever did. Now, time will tell if his legacy will live on...

Yes, but just because Steve passed away doesn't suddenly make people think they must have an iPhone either.

I guess we will see on iDay... I still am sad anytime I come on here today.. =/

I do have a question, do you think i would be able to walk in the store on the same day and get the phone instead of selling my phone and preordering? My main concern is not having a phone for a week, *im poor i know*, so I was wondering if anyone knows what the demand is now?

What does the word 'welp' mean in the thread title?
I was going to try to explain it but UD does a much better job.

Welp.
To be used in place of 'well', when one feels there is no more to say. This word was originally brought to the peoples' attention in 1994, from Jim Carrey in the cult classic, Dumb & Dumber.
