Apple sells 5 million iPhone 5s first weekend, less than expected

The company that makes the iPhone for Apple was forced to suspend production Monday.  According to police reports, 2,000 FoxConn employees were involved in a massive brawl at one of the facility's dormitories Sunday night. The fight resulted in broken windows, a fire and 40 people requiring medical attention. It took 5,000 police officers almost four hours to finally restore order.

According to analysts, the plant shutdown should not have that much of an impact on supply lines, because of the way the factory spreads out its manufacturing. So, don't worry, you'll still be able to get all your favorite Apple products.

Which brings us to tonight's number: 5 MILLION. FULL POST
