Did you try to order the new iPhone 4?

Well, then you're the reason why the rest of the world couldn't pre-order yesterday.

From CNN:

Customers eager to buy Apple's new iPhone 4 experienced massive and widespread difficulties when attempting to pre-order the smart phone on Tuesday, the day it went on sale.

Users trying to order the iPhone on Apple's website received an error message: "Your request couldn't be processed. We're sorry, but there was an error processing your request. Please try again later." Attempts to preorder from AT&T's website yielded similar error messages.

So you see? If only you had waited a day or two, you wouldn't have broken AT&T. You should feel guilty. Really guilty.

In other news, I'm not as hyped about the new version as I have been in the past. It might have something to do with the fact that ever since they announced the iPhone 4, my current iPhone (the second version, the 3G, for those of you who care) has been acting funny, dropping calls when it clearly has full signal. I'm thinking it's a conspiracy to MAKE me buy the iPhone 4, which makes me NOT want to buy it at all.

But I do have to admit: I REALLY want the capability to multi-task.
