    Just got home from the 5th ave store. I got in line about 5:30ish. I slept overnight for the first launch and I'd say I was about 2x as far back today. The line moved super quick. Apple must have had over 100 on staff to activate. Doors opened at 8 and I was out by 9, and I'd say I was about 150th in line. Very smooth, very friendly....glad I went there as opposed to AT&T.

    I'd expect nothing less at flagship stores such as the 5th avenue store or the Michigan Avenue Store here in Chicago. Those are the stores the media go to...so of course they will make sure things go as smoothly as possible. It's the smaller stores I'm worrying about.

    Exactly....no way Apple is going to be low on stock at the 5th avenue store nor are they going to be low on staff. Perception is everything.

    Oh they probably have enough to last into next month...meanwhile the rest of the country suffers through shortages.
