Verizon iPhone pre-orders sold out, new VZW iPhone ad debuts

Contrary to the anticipation of some midnight ramblers (or, to be precise, three in the morning bandits), the Verizon subscriber-exclusive pre-order window didn't close for business before the sun rose on the East Coast this morning.

Verizon iPhone now available for pre-order

The US Apple Store is down - you'll never guess why

Apple's online store for the US is down (all other countries' stores are still up). If I were a betting man, though, I'd say it'll be back up by 3 AM, when pre-orders for the Verizon iPhone are expected to begin.
