    that early? wow ack!


    :(

    edit: i called and they said the mall will open @ 7am but we can park in the garage and wait til 7am.
    he said he doesn't know what it's going to be like, so he didn't recommend a time.

    Lol well depends on how I feel early Friday morning :p

    I looked up a past launch for MacArthur and saw that people generally lined up at the entrance by Starbucks. At one launch I think it said Apple even passed out coffee. Not sure what this one will be like. I decided against ordering online because I wanted to experience a launch. :D

    I did it last year for the iP4. I got there at 5am and was about 80th in line. I walked out at 4pm with a shiny new phone. You see that I am not there this year :) They did serve bagels and coffee. Then at lunch time they walked around with pizza. It was ok I guess.

    wow! that was really nice.

    i was there at 4am this morning, ended up being 5th in line after the 2 lines (entrances) merged. it was very cool! the last one i went to was for the 3gs.

    4pm omgz how much did u pay for parking. i paid 7$ for 4 1/2 hours.
    a woman from mall security did say last year was crazy. i kinda like waiting and talking to people tho. it was fun. i was able to take off today, so it was even better.

    well, i might pre order next time. i'll be more prepared and sell my phone in advance.

    when i came back at about 930a or so, there was no line. i'm not sure about now. looks like they went thru the line very fast and still have more.
