Last two weeks of September starts on Sept 16, which is definitely the middle of the month. If they're expecting high volume starting then and thru the end of the month, I don't see how that's inconsistent with the other stories.

Do they know the meaning of the word "conflicting"?
Here I'll spell it out for the moron that wrote this article.
Sept = 30 days
2 weeks = 14 days
30 - 14 = 16
with me so far?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, haha. The last two weeks = the mid-September to the end of September. This fits in perfectly with the other stories

If something starts in the middle of a month, it is not the same as if it starts at the end of the month. The article writer is absolutely right. You guys are the morons.

"Claiming to toil for AT&T, the tipster said that employees of the carrier are being told that they cannot take a vacation during the last two weeks of September. Obviously, that would seem to indicate that the Apple iPhone 5 will launch during the last two weeks of September."
I see where the confusion might be. They were probably referencing two different tipsters. Maybe? I don't know, pretty confused now.
But anyway i just want to see the damn thing already so I can know if I'm buying it or not.

Just goes to show you that Apple knows how to make quality products.

Apple could put out a turd, slap it's logo on it and people would still buy it.

Apparently no one at phonearena is aware of this, but 14 days before the end of a 30 day month is what would be considered the "middle" of the month.
