    I don't see it. They know that if they build a ton, eventually the inventory will be liquidated.

    If they beef up their servers, et al, when demand dies down, they have spent all that money on capacity that won't be needed until the next big product release. Might not be worth the investment. Particularly if they know people will eventually get on and order and be happy cuz Apple has enough actual stock to go around. Then, people won't be so mad that the site was bogged down for a day or two.

    pre-orders start on the 15th, actual phone sale is 24th... why would everyone try to be the first one to pre-order when everyone will get the phone at or around the same time?

    Because if you actually want to get it on the day its released you will need to preorder as early as possible, especially if you want to pick it up in store. There is always a queue for and it goes by when you ordered. If you preorder the 16th you will most likely get your phone the 25th, if the 17th then the 26th..this is how it has gone in the past.
