    Did you notice that the first few persons waiting in line for the iPhone in NYC are odd looking?

    Not to be impolite -- but I thought they cast a bad image for Apple users.

    Apple should hire beautiful models to pose as fans camping out for the iPhone.

    You are beautiful (confirmed), but with your brown skintone I'm pretty sure you'd wilt less than those white guys out there with only a CRT tan instead of a base tan to save them. At least one of them brought sunscreen... LOL

    Fair enough! :p

    Egh, I can't imagine sitting outside in the middle of Manhattan in late June for a week, even to get an iPhone! I'm just a wuss. :eek:

    Actually that guy just likes to be 1st in line everywhere. I can't find the article but I think that he was 1st in line to meet/shake President Bush's hand after inaugeration and the 1st person from the public to write in Princess Diana's condolence book after she died. He's just an obsessive 1st do to things person... who looks really really bad shirtless.

    You might have gotten less publicity, but you could have waited first in line at the nearest ATT store. You're just weak.;)

    Maybe I'll go to NYC on Saturday to be the first in line for whatever comes out next. :p

    Hey, I bet we could get past the embarrassment of being an Apple geek in a collapsible chair if we had a few friends. Let's everybody fly to Manhattan! Mohan's hosting! ;)

    Oh my god, how ridiculous. I can't believe this!

    Well, now, if we're talking block party, that's a wholly different story. :)

    Oh yeah, good point. I bet a block party would be fun! Or beach party! You're in Florida, there's got to be a good beach close!

    We should plan a MacRumors destination vaca!
