    My Apple store is located inside of this huge indoor shopping mall. I stopped by just to check out the scene. About 30 people waiting outside the store and there were 2 security guards and 2 employees at the door. And, 2 other employees with printouts seemed to check people getting in the line if their names are on the list. I didn't even bother to ask, but it looked like no walk-ins, but I could be wrong about that.

    I still have 2 weeks left before my Verizon contract expires. So, I will try another day. I don't think 3GS will sell out.

    The list is probably people who pre-ordered and choose to pick up at that store.

    That's a short line compared to the debacle last year.

    That means after 11 hours they still have stock to sell, Im impressed. AT&T I went to had 2 or 3 left at 9am.

    Yeah the Apple store in VA, Fair Oaks still had a considerable line when I went earlier this afternoon to pick up my anti-glare films. They were sold out of walk-INS so apparently the pre-order process was taking forever.

    Actually, what I described above was the scene of Tysons Corner Apple store. I guess Fair Oaks is the same story.
