It seems odd that Apple would underestimate demand two years in a row.

Apple spends time worrying about diversity, immigration and global warming they no longer are able to ship their friggin products.

As my products need replacing I am leaving the apple ecosystem. It should never be this difficult to spend money/

But the iPhone X is available. Should I buy it? I've been waiting for Gruber's review.

Airpods a great holiday gift!

Gruber is first with the news!

This is why I come to Daring Fireball!

I need to go clean up now.

Where's Gruber's Apple Associate Link, so he can get his cut?

Hipsters 'R' Us:
How about this: Gruber's Gift Guide. It would be an annual list of recommended gifts for the insufferable overage hipster in your life, from the best typewriter to the best martini shaker to the best Stanley Kubrick movie available in 4K. Suggest quirky, unexpected runner-ups in case first choices aren't available. Like, "If AirPods are unavailable, consider giving your favorite hipster a lovingly handwritten coupon for a future AirPod delivery, plus tickets to a Radiohead concert."

As if Gruber's Gift Guide would consist of anything other than cheap whiskey.

@Hipsters: Gosh, I sure hope that list is both curated and artisanal as fuck.

Gruber is one of the Marco Arment class of sub-hipsters for whom "taste" means buying "the best" consumer electronics. He hasn't even cultivated a sense of taste to the degree required of actual hipsters.

the problem with fucking hipsters is having to make them a nonfat organic soymilk chai latte in the morning.

The problem with hipsters is they are breathing.
