Lines For 3G iPhone Already Forming in NYC
Reports are surfacing that people are already standing in line today at the New York City Apple store in anticipation of the 3G Apple iPhone launch on Friday July 11, 2008 at 8:00 a.m. when they finally go on sale here in the U.S and in 21 other countries worldwide. That's almost a full week before you able to part with your $199/$299 in hard earned cash after signing your wireless life away to AT&T for the next two year, or even throwing in your first born if you are looking to plunk down the required $699 to walk away with the 16Gb version sans a contract. With iPhone supplies expected to far exceed demand at launch, this is just crazy! Folks, if you're spending the next six days (and nights) waiting in line for an iPhone you can walk in and buy at hundreds of outlets without having to wait more than five minutes--if that, you probably have no life with too much time on your hands, and/or are looking to get you face on the six-o'clock news. Either way, we can think of plenty of better things you can do with this amount of spare time--like volunteering at the nearest homeless shelter, or better yet, maybe using that time to polish up that resume! We hear lots of outlets where the phrase "Would you like fries with that?" can use a few dedicated good men and women!
