Nothing gets the Internet excited quite like a new mobile device from totally benevolent Apple Inc.:

Topeka Capital analyst Brian White is really excited:

In case anyone needs an analyst to tell them, Topeka Capital analyst Brian White has told the world that he believes the iPhone 5 will be the ”biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history.” If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t really know what will.

CNET is really excited:

The guy who made this "Gangnam Style" iPhone 5 parody is really excited:


The economy is really excited:

We believe the release of iPhone 5 could potentially add between 1/4 to 1/2%-point to fourth quarter annualized GDP growth. Our equity analysts believe around 8 million iPhone 5's will be sold in the US in Q4, even while sales of previous generation iPhones are maintained at a solid pace.


Are YOU excited?
