As of yesterday at 3:00 p.m. PDT, lines outside of Apple retail stores around the world had reached epic proportions. It has been a while since a new iPhone has created such a frenzy. It appears that Apple is back in business as über fans are participating in the line-sitting experience again.
As a member of “geek culture,” I’ve sat in my fair share of lines for premiers of “Star Wars” and “Lord of the Rings” movie premiers. I’ve also been up at the wee hours of twilight to stand in hours-long lines for various iOS devices.
