You just knew something bad was going to happen here.
Perth, Australia was the setting as the very first…long dramatic pause…. iPhone 6 went on sale to the faithful yesterday morning.

(BTW, just in case you assume I’m a member of the increasingly vocal anti-iPhone crowd, here are my last few phones):

I guess this is what qualifies as “BREAKING NEWS!” in Perth.
