Tyrone Slothrop: For the same reason people line up for new console releases. There are some people who think they have to get their new toy as soon as possible.


That's exactly it.  Toys.  It's childish at best.  While the boys were waiting in line their girlfriends were getting farked by a man.

I just painted "6" on the back of my 5, so I'm getting a kick out of these early adopters.

It's a social event. It's the one time they get to talk to other humans instead of looking at their phones.

LouDobbsAwaaaay: Who are trumped by the people who go online to whine and complain about the people who choose to spend a portion of their free time going online to whine and complain about people who choose to spend a portion of their free time waiting in line to buy something.


You can't fool me - it's douchebags all the way down!

Flint Ironstag: cameroncrazy1984: FlashHarry: i didn't line up for anything. i walked into an AT&T store on a whim and upgraded to a 5S. the whole thing took about 20 minutes.

so far, awesome phone. love the fingerprint thing. and the camera is very nice.

It took me a few 30-exposure shots to remember that the thing takes pictures for as long as you hold your finger on the button. The slo-mo mode is fun too.

Multi exposure? Slo mo? So the iPhone has caught up with my HTC which has had those for ages?

INVENTED those features.

Just thought I'd fix your error...

RealXavori: My previous phone was a Galaxy S2. It was still faster than an iPhone.


So your phone calls are shorter? Do people on the line sound like they're huffing helium?

Headline reminds me of a joke I recently read, has nothing to do with subject of the article:

"Did you realize that when you say the word "poop" your mouth is making the same motion as your anus does when you actually poop?  Interesting, isn't it?"
"Yes, and the same is true of the phrase "explosive diarrhea."

I bet nobody in this thread ever lined up for Batman, Star Wars, or the midnight release of a video game. NOBODY.

sammyk: I have no idea subby but I loathe Apple product releases. At least they are solid proof that making fun of Apple fanboys is completely justified. It's a phone FFS, it's not going to change your life.


Well, unless you're some sort of pathetic loser that has the time to wait in line for a phone, and is gullible enough to think a new iteration of 10+ year old technology is worth lining up for.

/This one has panoramic camera!
//Panoramic!
///And an anti-flash thingy!

But it comes in different colors! And it has a fingerprint scanner to secure all your important top secret pictures of your cat!
