WOW, it was packed in there...How the hell do you see the computer when 300 people are in front of it....Jobs probably got trampled in the crowd, that's why u didn't see him...:D

They gave away free MacBooks (middle model). They gave each one away every hour. I have a video of the winner that got the MacBook for the 7-8pm drawing. I'll post it later though since I have to compress the videos. I also have a video of me entering and leaving the store with tons of people cheering! :D So much fun!

I wish the Gateway store was opening again for the first time lol. That was fun, they cheered shouted and greeted us at the door. It was so neat and so fun. My mom was amazed at the products Apple had.

If you go to Apple's 5th Ave Store Site here (http://www.apple.com/retail/fifthavenue/) you might be able to see yourself. (If you have QuickTime Pro you can do a "Save as source" and view it frame-by-frame on your desktop).

I was in a few shots in the "19:00" section. The time-lapse camera was covered in plastic and there was a plastic tent that had two people and a Mac laptop inside. It was cool :D

I'm the one in the green jacket with the hat on :)

I thought this guy was funny. It was taken from the time-lapse images (http://www.apple.com/retail/fifthavenue) of the first 24 hours.

So we're all dying to know if Uschi Lang say yes... CAN'T APPLE TELL US? They should do something like this "Uschi Lang, now what will you chose, a BRAND NEW MACBOOK + 50 IPODS or the guy" of course if she chose the guy she'll get the Macbook too [maybe not the 50 iPods] :p
