I was in New York City yesterday to give a lecture at NYU on affiliate marketing and had some time to kill beforehand. So I ventured up to the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue to see the people waiting in line for an iPhone.
It was a dedicated bunch, for sure, but ridiculous. Come on now – waiting a week to get a gadget.
I think it looks like a great product, though I am still a BlackBerry guy. Don’t get me wrong, I love some flavors of Apple Kool-Aid. I’ve got my MacBook and iPod right here in front of me.
And I may get an iPhone out of curiosity. But no way would I wait in the heat, humidity, rain and stink of the NYC summer. I’m all about buying my Mac products online.
The iPhone, nicknamed the “Jesus Phone” on some blogs, is being unleashed on the world at 6pm EST on June 29.
