    nah, Sammy is busy this year showing off new products and they dont need people to line up outside a store (purely for attention and publicity) because they are the number one manufacturer beating ALL the competition--including the next 4 closest competitors combined.

    Someone should tell them you can preorder one online and have it sent to your house.

    If there is one thing we can take away from this, it's that humans are stupid and that's not all that surprising.

    I waited in line over night when the local Chick-Fil-A opened. They give away free meals for a year to the first 100 customers. That was 10yrs ago when I was in college, now I have a job and a family.

    Do they work? If not who's buying their iPhones anyway?

It's almost like these Apple lines are social experiments now that I think about it... and that makes it tempting, in a way, to wait in line not for the product, but for the line.

    Not... People need to get a job and a life.

    They obviously have jobs and are somewhat successful if they can afford to camp outside an apple store for two weeks only to buy an expensive iPhone... I and all of my friends took a week's vacation when Diablo 3 came out. Y'all need to stop hatin' on people just because they choose to spend their time differently.

    The last time I waited online was for the iPhone 3GS, wait time was about 19 hours. It took a lot longer because Apple couldn't handle orders and computers kept crashing left and right. Meanwhile, my boss kept blowing up my phone wondering why I wasn't at work. I actually put my job on the line for that phone, I kept telling myself that I was too close to leave after 19 hours!!! Haven't done that sense, totally not worth it.

    Like I said you are clueless. You didn't buy your iphone 5 with 6.1.4 if you "ditched" your 4 for it. Probably means you bought it last year. So if you upgraded to 6.1.4 then you are clueless. You could have jail broke you phone. And FYI, check out evasion. Maybe, just maybe they have a jailbreak for 6.1.4. Smh. Like I said, there will always be a jailbreak for ever iphone on ever firmware.

    What job lets you miss work for two weeks? Even still they aren't getting paid for those two weeks. If they are making a lot of money then why not just buy one off eBay and still go to work? Paying double for the phone will still save them more money than missing work for two weeks.
