    I always find line waiters interesting as I would question:



    1. who has the time to sit in a queue for as many hours/days unless they are unemployed?

    2. assuming unemployment, how can they afford to buy said gadgets and why would they, given that they are indulgences?

    3. what is the urgency in having one of these gadgets before everyone else? Surely they would just be able to get one within a day or two after the launch and given that most others would be able to, the achievement of getting there first is surely pretty short-lived.



    I don't get the fascination with it to be honest.

    I agree Marvin. You've waited all your life for a great phone, be it the iPhone or Pre or INSERT_PHONE_NAME, why not wait another day or two. People baffle me.

    Maybe they are being paid to wait and get the phone for someone else?

    Writers for tech (and pseudo-tech) blogs, for instance. They are paid. They have to write hands-on reports, to dismantle another one gadget first, etc. Or just to write about how all that was going in front of Sprint's outlet.
