If you're Apple, there's good news, and there's bad news.
First, the good news: You sold a bunch of iPhone 5s, and people lined up or ordered online. We received more than 20 iReports from excited customers showing us overnight campouts and people who queued for several days. Veenu Aishwarya of Philadelphia went to an Apple store just to experience the scene.
Veenu: "It was my first such event to witness an iPhone launch at an Apple store. Although, I was not in line for the iPhone, I was equally excited just to see all the smiling faces and the level of energy and enthusiasm among Apple fans."
Some CNN.com readers said they are happy with their Apple products.
Xeres: "My iPhone 5 is waiting for me at home. No waiting in a line needed."
icharliem2: "I'd used Apple products for 30 years. Never had a major problem. A lot of times what you get is more than what you can see. Never heard many people who switched to Apple products say they're bad. Only those who've never owned one. Are they the best in all things ? I don't think so, but their integration of hardware and software is better than anyone else and keeps getting better."
And now, the bad news. We saw quite a bit of backlash among our commenters.
Eddie Francis: "I hope the people in the photo are happier human beings now, seeing they just bought a phone. What an achievement."

AnywhereElse: " 'Humans can be so silly.' –Pigeons worldwide observing the Apple lines"
maxemoose36: " 'Silly ... for me to poop on!' –Triumph (the insult comic dog)"
agent13: "My name is Zoltar from the planet Ux. Upon visiting your lovely planet all the locals told me I should try this Apple, that it was awesome. You were right. It's very delicious, except for the outer case. It tends to get stuck in my teeth."
A debate took place about other companies' products. FULL POST
