With the iPhone 5 around the corner, my favorite parts about the release (besides having the actual phone itself) are: - Camping out in line with my Macbook filled with movies and socializing with other iPhone fans. - Getting on these forums and seeing the huge influx of posts. The forums just feel so alive and buzzing with chock full of info and stories. - Being apart of history and able to tell it to my future grand kids. 20 years from now, they will be teaching kids case studies of the long lines generated for Apple product releases. I can't wait!
