iPhone 4S Already Sold Out in Hong Kong

Apple’s iPhone 4S launched in Hong Kong at 7 am local time today and was sold out by morning’s end.

According to Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White, by lunchtime there was not a 4S to be had in the Hong Kong Apple Store. Other reports say the device sold out in about three hours. Not a surprise, really, given that preorders sold out in just 10 minutes. Before its doors opened this morning, crowds had been lining up for more than 24 hours outside Hong Kong’s flagship Apple store. Below, video of that enormous queue.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
