    Some people don't understand that it's not EVERY best buy. It's only certain locations.

    Holy crap! Your iphone battery is NEVER going to last until tomorrow morning. I am guessing we will lose contact with you around 12:30 Eastern.

    I used to work at that Best Buy back in 1997. :)

    At least the weather looks good for being outside!

    The two I visited are larger Apple volume sellers. In the past, both have had large lines for high demand items. I was surprised no one is out there yet.

    Best Buy hasn't advertised they'd have the iPad, so I doubt a lot of people are aware of it.

    Im going to go by Best Buy about 7am on the way to a independent Mac store which opens at 9am. If there is no line at Best Buy at 7am, I may just stop there and wait. Still trying to figure out my plan. :D

    Perhaps you can pick up the Justin Bieber CD while you are there...:p

    Oh and don't forget to inquire if they will help you setup your iPad, I think they have a secret special price of $149 for launch day...:)

    Just checked out my best buy and nobody's there... I'm going around 7:30 tomorrow. If I can't get it I don't mind waiting a few weeks.

    Just checked out my Best Buy. No one there yet. Will be checking in at 4AM to see what's up.

    If there is no line, I will probably form it then or wait another hour.

    If there is a line, I will hop in it.

    If there is a long line, which exceeds the project 15 per store, I will head up to an Apple Store.
