    Time to pull some strings, arn...you'll be needing one as a member of the tech media. I'm sure they will look forward to your review. ;)

    I spoke with an Apple empolyee at the Short Pump Mall and was told that Mall security won't allow any camping whatsoever.

    Not that I planned to, but I am hoping they have a ton of them. Was also told they will probably be open late that night.

    I have plans that night but I would like to swing by at 11 pm and try and get one..... Wishful thinking...

    I plan on getting there late that afternoon to jump in line. At that point, I just have to hope they have enough on hand to fulfill the demand on launch day.

    arn..... where are you going to be?

    I can't decided where to go, the Apple Store (would be so much cooler) or the AT&T (better chance per sjobs)?

    I was planning on the Apple Store just cause I didn't have a feel for how many the AT&T stores are getting

    I bet people will want to get there super early but security won't allow that. Mall doesn't open until 10.....

    It bothers me with the 6 pm thing. I have two kids that go to bed around 7 and I am damn sure not going to be waiting in line when it is their dinner/bed time. We also have some folks coming over with their kids so maybe after dinner and lots of drinks, the crowd will die down and I can get there late night.

    Sorry for rambling, but I have a lot of angst

    Right now my wife and I are in the "lets wait and see" camp. Our Verizon contract ends in 02/08. We have a AT&T store about 3 min from our house, but the wife likes to talk to her ex-coworkers at the store.

    Well I'll be there in line. And I'm bringing a fellow mac convert with me. So there will be at least two more nuts there. ;) If things look bleak at 6pm at Short Pump I'm ready to dash to all the local at&t stores b/c yes, I am just that crazy :) It's dorkily fun, no?

    I'll be there. I can bring the Dew if someone else brings something to much on!

    I wonder if security would allow a huge tent? Probably not; guess I'll have to settle with the folding chair :-\

    I just want to see all hype and their store displays too.

    Just spoke to my Apple Store (Richmond, VA) and was told lines can start forming at 9 am when the mall opens and that they didn't even have them in yet with no indication about how many they might get. She also reitereated the obvious, closed from 2-6 and open til midnight....

    I wonder how the local AT&T stores are doing. I'm planning on leaving work around 3:30pm to swing by there...

    I just went by Short Pump, there is roughly ~45-65 people there. Which AT&T store are you referring to? Err, nevermind I see.

    9 people at AT&T Short Pump, now.... I might get there by 4-430.

    I wouldn't like my chances at the Apple Store even though I think it would be cooler there!
