    Here are a few pictures (courtesy of ike) of the New York SoHo store taken around 1:30am Thursday.

    As mentioned in another post, Rolling Stone has video/interviews with some of these people - but not Cocoon-Person.

    I have no interest in the iPhone (or any cell phone), but I can see how people get totally swept up in the hysteria surrounding the release of new products. Better anyone else camping out on NYC streets than me. Good luck to those tolerating such conditions and, hopefully, it will all have been worth your personal sacrifice.

    This is why I am glad there are only mall stores around here. I don't have to bother even thinking about it.

    Y'know, while the experience may be fun for enthusiasts, they look pathetic out there in bad weather just for a gadget. Even my own point of view has changed because there are other important things in life.

    Not really nothing wrong with waiting. Some people live for the moment you know.

    Seriously.
    Getting a life, anyone?

    You'll just be able to walk in and buy it, for cryin' out loud!
    And if one store should unexpectedly really run out, oh well, buy it at the next store down the street, or venture to do the unthinkable -- wait for a day. Not a reason to commit suicide. As someone else said... it's just a phone.

    If you don't have more important things to do in your life, you might use those 40 hrs you're standing in line to think of some!

    I would never sleep outside for a phone, no way! Especially not in NYC.

    Maybe they just have a really important call to make?

    I'm not sure I'd call sleeping rough for 2 days to get a phone "living for the moment". Maybe if they were sneaking into the store in ninja outfits, stealing one, and leaving a calling card they'd be living for the moment.

    Living for some moment in the future (6pm on June 29th) isn't living in the moment. ;)

    I have to say, I'm not sure I'd be too keen on them being there if I was the owner/manager of a nearby store. Lots of smelly people outside, blocking the footpath.

    I don't get why so many of you are so angry about these people. So it's not for you (and not for me, either). Big deal. Literally billions of people around the world do things I wouldn't do every single day, for what I often think are stupid reasons. So what? Doesn't hurt me - and these people camping outside apple stores don't hurt you. Calm down, live, and let live.

    Damn. Why you guys being hella jerks. I mean saying they have no lifes. They probably are with their friends waiting and just hanging out anyways. When I waited for 360 one night I had all my friends come, drinks, and music while waitin so we basically just through a party.

    No kidding. AT&T stores are like radio shack or the Paris Metro -- you're never more than a few hundred feet from one.

    lets face it we are all materialistic, but this is just a bit overboard. and no matter what it comes to the 600 price tag just isn't worth it right now. my treo can do the same things. granted the web browser sux and isn't all that great but it does what it needs to for me. that and using my laptop i can get on the internet anywhere i need to and that is a nice thing to have. granted slow, but still a nice thing to have.

    Kick and run! Kick and run! Everybody kick and run!

    Seriously... it was introduced 6 months ago. If you don't get one Friday, is it going to kill anyone to wait another week?

    If the bums in New York were smart they'd sit in line and get someone to pay them for their spot. They could make a months worth of begging wages in 3 days.

    I can't wait for Friday. Maybe in a couple weeks Apple can actually get back to bringing out newer computers again. In case you missed it, here is what Apple has given us year to date:

    Jan:
    iPhone announced
    :apple:tv announced
    Airport Extreme announced

    Feb:
    Colored Shuffles
    Airport Extreme shipping

    Mar:
    :apple:tv shipping

    Apr:
    Leopard delayed
    8-Core Mac Pros

    May:
    MacBook speed bumps
    :apple:tv 2nd HDD option
    iTunes Plus

    Jun:
    MacBook Pro Santa Rosa & LED
    Leopard re-preview
    Safari for Windows
    YouTube for :apple:tv

    and of course, tomorrow, the
    iPhone

    added to that more media craze and speculation about the iPhone than anything else, followed a distant second by a couple weeks of news almost solely about SEC investigations and allegations.

    So unless you want to count the 8-core Mac Pros as a revision (please don't count display price drops too), and the measily MacBook speed bump, we have seen one computer related update this year: Santa Rosa based MacBook Pros. Thass it.
