    Yeah I believe people doing that now are just trying to get a news story.. Whereas in the past people actually wanted the phone and it was announced...

    These people haven't even seen it and are doing it.. Just hoping to get a news story.

    You're all so cynical. It's possible they genuinely want to be the first to own the new iPhone, you know.

    And what does that gain? Millions will own the phone. It is neither special, nor exclusive, nor difficult to purchase.

    It's the sort of thing you either understand or you don't. People do illogical things when they're infatuated.

    Oh, I understand it. But that doesn't mean I don't think it's pretty stupid. Camp out to score tickets to a show that'll sell out... Not to buy a device that will be easily accessible pretty much everywhere. They're idiots (not the ones getting paid, good on them).

    I also think it has to do with loyalty
    There are a lot of people out there that will buy a $500 trash can if apple put there logo on it, they will buy anything and everything apple
    However, there are android enthusiasts and finatics, but since there is so much variety, a lot of people aren't completely loyal to one brand, just android in general
    If android were only on one phone, there would be lines starting two weeks earlier as well

    After Samsungs enormous advertising budget used to bash Apple it's probably a wash. Besides most of Samsung sales are in China. Just go to any mall and watch people. It's all iPhones. I have been an iPhone user from day one and just switched to android. So far I'm loving it. I got bored with the same old iPhone IOS. I needed some freedom. But Apple is a awesome product and people want it. It is what it is.

    Did you read the article?

    " Ceballo said he’s made approximately $7,000 waiting for Apple launches while building up his social media presence. Ceballo and Joseph Cruz a representatives of BuyBackWorld, a electronic re-seller.

    Cruz and Ceballo were the first in line before two people paid them $1,250 to secure the top spots, CNET reported."

    Keep all the nuts* in one area. Then call in this guy:
