iFanatics line up for 3G
They were waiting well before the stores opened, in some cases for days. There aren't all that many things New Yorkers will wait on line for. They make exceptions for Shake Shack. They waited when Trader Joe's was readying to open its doors. But they ALWAYS line up for Apple.
And now comes word that a surprise glitch means all those iFanatics with their new iPhones aren't going to be able to show off their toy quite as soon as they'd like.
All that hype, laid low by a software glitch!
That'll surely amuse one old school New Yorker (think Archie Bunker), who was watching the line outside the AT&T store next to the Forest Hills subway stop this morning.
Asked by a passerby what the line was for, he bellowed, "They're waiting IN LINE to PAY MONEY--for a TELEPHONE!"
Yeah, we've sure come a long way from Ma Bell's 'you can have your (rented) phone in any color, as long as it's black.'
