We've got two stores in Santa Cruz County that will have the iPhone for sale Friday evening. One in Capitola Mall's AT&T Store and one in the Watsonville AT&T Store across from Staples on the Main road in from HWY 17. Anyone else here from Santa Cruz County?

I'll be there! Didn't even think about the Watsonville one...I'm in soquel so...cap mall's alot easier. I'm old(35), so I have this fear that a bunch of 18yos will pull a "playstation 3" on me and form a huge line that wraps out the door all the way around mervins...hope that is just paranoia :)

I was hoping 5:45 or 5:50 ;>

Seriously though...I don't want to be the only dork there at 4:00...but I also don't want to feel like an ass because I showed up an hour late.

I'll probably start wandering around at 4, and if I see a line start to form, I'll jump in. If there is already a huge line at 4, I'm F'd. I can't wait in any line for more than 2 hours.

i just dont want to get screwed like i did for the wii. i went by toys r us a couple of hours before they went on sale and it was a mad house. im taking the day off work so ill probably cruise by when the store opens and check it out. i too don't want to be the only loser in line, but i want to get one. anyone know how many the cap mall store is getting?

OK...I've got a plan!

I'm going to hire a guy from the parking lot where they are building the new home depot. He can wait in line from 1:00 until 5:45, then I'll come in for the glory shot. You think people would stab me?

Well I guess if there's only 3 of us, I'm gonna drive over to Palo Also this morning and hang out there all day and the downtown Apple Store. By the way, I'm not buying one - only watching and videotaping everyone who is.

I'm wondering if Arn would provide us with an email address so I could send telephone videos he could post of live activity from each store where MacRumors reporters are based?
