iPhone 6 Plus could be hard to find on launch day

Based on record preorders, finding Apple's new 5.5-inch iPhone may be a challenge on launch day. Also, Microsoft builds a new world for Minecraft, and Google launches an affordable Android phone for developing countries.

This Friday could be Apple's biggest iPhone launch day yet -- and we're not just talking about a bigger screen. Apple sold a record number of new iPhones in the first 24 hours of preorders.
