Got a Few Extra Days With Nothing To Do? How About Waiting in Line for an iPhone 5!

Last night, I was walking along Fifth Avenue in New York. As I came upon the flagship Apple Store near Central Park, I notice that several people are already camping out to get first dibs on the iPhone 5 . . . which comes out on Friday morning at 8:00. That’s more than three days from now.

Eager iPhone 5 buyers camping out on Monday night, September 17, so they can buy their phone on Friday morning, September 21. Note: this photo was taken with my old, pathetic iPhone 4 (not 4s, just 4).

Now, I’m a fan of the iPhone. And I hope to upgrade my phone before too long. But, honestly, I’m not inclined to spend four days sitting on hard concrete in order to get an iPhone 5 on opening day. Sheesh.
