    Many people are going to stand in line tonight so it would be very cool if some of you could set up a live feed, google hangout or whatever - so we can enjoy the atmosphere.

    just post your links here - for sure a lot of people (myself included) would love to check out the vibe at the front lines of geekdom :cool:

    as I find this standing in line stuff to be a waste of time, I will look forward to someone who does this live feed and watch while im at home relaxing getting ready for work on Friday.

    :cool:

    The only thing I can think of that I would be less likely to waste my time doing than standing in line for the new iPhone is watching a live feed of someone else doing it

    as pathetic as I think standing in line is, I did it once for the 4S a couple years ago, and there were a few cool people around me in line (and a couple beautiful women), so it actually wasn't terrible. But I don't think I can bring myself to do it again.

    I want live feed, twitter updates, blog coverage and a download link after it ends, so we can all enjoy those joyful moments.

    Same experience here. Did it once, would never do it again. However I did meet a really cool guy(was some sort of software developer I think) which made the time pass faster.

    It's hit or miss. If you are just waiting for the phone, blah. If you enjoy the event, hang out with folks, talk to people, it's fun.

    I look at it like a tailgating party for Apple events instead if football games.

    Just watch out for the Samsung people coming by to taunt you, by touching their phones together to share playlists and waving their hands over the screen! lol

    Warm bed
    Hot drinks
    A bathroom

    The bathroom is the one I missed the most at 6am in line outside the Apple store. Dam, why did I have that coffee!

    I'm about to start a live feed of me getting dressed, eating a couple of snacks and heading to the Apple store.

    Direct link in about 15 minutes.
