    I plan on getting in line sometime between 12PM and 1. I'm not totally sure yet. What about you all?

    I'm going to Best Buy at 9am to see if I can get a voucher, then I'm going to work.

    @ 4:00 I'm going to the Apple Store to get in line (I'd prefer getting it there). If I can't get one @ 5pm, then I take the voucher to BB and get it there (but I'd hate to buy it from them because their sales people are not very knowledgeable or helpful).

    I have no idea at this point. 2PM sounds like a pretty good time.

    I heard that Best Buy was NOT gonna be giving vouchers for the 3G launch :( I may be wrong though.

    That seems to be the consensus. Check yours though, plenty of policies are not chain-wide.

    I'm in Heathrow Airport at the moment ( I emigrate in about 3 hrs, to LA ) - I hope to be at the Pasadena store for about 4 - 4.30pm :)

    I'll give it a try anyway (on the way to work). Worse thing they can say is no, and if they do, I'll get in line at the Apple Store @ 3, instead of 4.

    :( I've flown out of Heathrow T1 twice this year already, and will do in about 2.5hrs - and I've looked really hard for G-BOAB, and couldn't see her. I'm not sure what BA have done with her. Rumours are she's going to be involved as a lawn-ornament for T5. She used to be parked up on an unused taxiway but certainly isn't out and about at the moment.

    I visited the one at Brooklands a couple of years ago - they've done a lovely job with that airframe.

    Personally, I think they should replace the vulgar Emirates A380 model on the main Heathrow Roundabout with G-BOAB, nose up like she did on take-off, drowining out the 6 O'Clock news for everyone in Hounslow, reminding them that humans can build awesome stuff from time to time :D

    And you know what.... the iPad is about the only digital device that would have looked right sat in Concord's last interior outfitting.
