    I didn't see a post for my area so I figured I'd make one. Who's going and what will you guys be bringing with ya? I'll have my iPhone 4s, iPad, snacks, drinks, blankets and something to sit on. See you there boys and girls! :D

    Was considering dropping by. I don't think I have the energy to wait like I did for the iPhone 4. May take my chances later in the day or just wait till everything dies down. The lines are fun though - good people.

    Oh and Chick Fil A was giving out breakfast biscuits during the iPhone 4 launch. :D

    I waited in line for the iPhone 4 and original iPad. The lines started around 10pm and quickly filled up. I would recommend going to the mall for a late dinner so you can do a drive by to assess the line and then make the call on when you'll want to start waiting.

    Thanks for the insight, justinguru. Obviously the over 3 million people that have pre-ordered their iPhone 5's "think different" than you. Why don't you go try to hock your custom wood cases elsewhere buddy, m'kay? Thanks!

    That is wonderful suggestion on the dinner. We are driving down from Gville and visiting family. My luck they'll dump me off and go home and sleep.

    I'm gonna be at the Apple Store at Int'l Plaza, but I'll probably get there around 9:30am or maybe a tad later. I'm driving over from the beach in Pinellas County so I gotta time it to avoid rush hour heading into Tampa. I'm hoping that with another Apple Store in Brandon, carrier stores, Best Buy, etc. - and this being a work day for many - that I can get in & out without a too hellishly long wait. Feel free to tell me if that's an idiotic thought :eek:

    My concern showing up at 9am, is that product maybe gone. If they sold over 2M of the devices so hard and 4s is sort of incremental update in a way and many people did were not upgrade eligable and now they are. SO I expect the line will be long and early.

    So who all will be waiting line in the early AM?

    How is the line looking? Usually there is news coverage but not so much this time. Does that mean that the line isn't so bad?
