Marketplace has a new podcast for kids, "Million Bazillion!" EPISODE OUT NOW

Lots of people want iPhones

Shocking, I know. Apple announced today over a million people ordered the new iPhone4S. That’s almost twice as many people who preordered the iPhone 4. Now, there are no more preorder phones to be had – Verizon, AT&T and Apple said they ran out of supplies. So if you want a new phone and didn’t preorder, get in line.
