    $1500 tax free?

    Sorry, but I'm not turning down $1500 tax free if someone offered that to me.

    I mean, it's not like the iPhone 4S is disappearing after that day. And if it does get sold out before I can to it (after lining up again), I'll probably go into the store, play around with Siri a little bit, enjoy my iP4 with iOS 5 and be that much happier when I have a free iP4s plus almost 2 years worth of free service!!

    No offense, but I personally don't think that was a good financial decision (for either party frankly speaking). But who knows, maybe these the people are just floating around in money...

    Sounds like they have a sponsor, who is probably footing the bill for the whole deal. My guess is that they are making much more than $1500 for their efforts as human signs.

    Part of me thinks waiting like that is absurd, but I can say that if I ever got to the point where I was either out of a job or was so rich that I didn't need one I would probably do something like this. At this point, what else do you have to do?

    I can't imagine taking my 2 weeks of vacation time for something like this.

    Ya they are sponsored by Gazelle which I guess is appropriate.

    I think it's more interesting that there were, at the time of that story, only 25 people. No idea how many there are now but 25 is an astonishingly low number for that store given its location.

    Very, very low. There were about 100 in two different lines the afternoon before last year.

    Nobody goes to the Apple Store to get new iPhones anymore. We've all learned better.
