Stuff Silly People Like: Waiting in Line

If you haven’t heard that the new iPhone was released today… well, frankly, you’ve been living under a rock.

Because of the obsession that is the iPhone, thousands of people throughout the country stood in line during the early hours of the morning today trying to be the first to get their hands on the iPhone 3G, which features faster connections, among other things.

The New York Times greets us with an interesting first-hand survey of the people closest to the front of the line.

“In the early-morning light, the line of Apple aficionados stretched to the corner and down the block, past F.A.O. Schwarz, and around another corner. Some of the people had been there long enough that they were admiring their own photos in a morning paper.”

Meanwhile, in what’s being hailed as the iPocalypse, AT&T and Apple stores were apparently having trouble activating the phones, Fortune reports. Epic FAIL, my friends.

At least Wimbush or Bumpers didn’t show up, or there would have been severed fingers.
