Campers already setting up for iPhone 5C/5S launch at Apple's 5th Avenue Store


quote:



With Apple's media event still four days away and the launch of new iPhone hardware likely two weeks away, campers are already starting to line up at the company's flagship Fifth Avenue retail store in Manhattan.

Two representatives from Cincinnati-based SellYourMac arrived on the scene today to begin what they hope will be a two-week campout, only to find that they were not the first people in line at the Fifth Avenue store, which generally serves as one of the most high-profile launch sites due to its iconic design and 24-hour operation. Two other campers claimed their spots at the front of the line last night, settling in for the long wait.

Apple's media event is scheduled for next Tuesday, with rumors and speculation pointing to a launch of the iPhone 5S and 5C in the United States and other first-wave countries on Friday, September 20.

I hope the cops go and give them some "stick time" for loitering.

Of course they do. They are paid by Apple to camp in line as a ploy to generate hype for their new product.

These people are as bad as those camping out for sneakers.

People don't get shot at apple stores. They are idiots nonetheless.

Soon you'll hear people talk about taking a yearly camping trip for their new phone. For frick's sake it is a phone that will be outdated in a couple months that everyone else will have! What satisfaction do you gain from this?

This smells like a setup...with a hint of pathetic on Apple's part.

I think I'd go camp at one of the many beautiful places in this country and then go buy the phone when I got back.

re: Campers already setting up for iPhone 5C/5S launch at Apple's 5th Avenue Store


So with the revelations of the NSA having back door access to apple shit, does it concern anyone else that the new iphone reportedly has a fingerprint scanner built into to the home button? Seems like they can build a database of people's fingerprints without them ever having to be arrested, hence, submitting to a fingerprint scan
