I always wonder about what kind of jobs people have where they can line up days, weeks, and even months before the release of phones, game consoles, and other things that aren't exactly cheap.

1. I don't mind that Daily Dot is not news, but it's not even entertaining. Hell Cracked is better.
2. The guy is wearing an iPhone costume and uses a Dell, I sense PR move/performance act.
3. Have I mentioned that I hate the Daily Dot?

If you line up where there is no queue, isn't that just called loitering?

If you do it for 7 months isn't it called homelessness?

"Yoppy got totally screwed on the iPhone 5 when he only showed up a day early. "

um how so? He had to get it a week later than everyone else? Unless his job depends on being one of the very first people to touch one (tech reviewer?) how can it really impact his life that much?

Walmart, BestBuy, and Radio Shack have been having the 5S for between 125-175 on and off since it was released.

I've never purchased an iPhone for myself (though I bought 70 for work),  but that's the best reason I've heard so far to get one.

Do you not have a job? A girlfriend? A hobby? Read a book or watch a movie, or just pound your sub standard pecker for a while and wish you were an American.

Getting the new iphone is a triumph for anyone lucky enough to get one.  Those that acquire them on release day live by a warriors code. Which is something that you cannot possibly understand.

Not cheap enough. My contract runs through Christmas & I always wait until I can get better pricing.

/ never paid more than $50 for any iPhone
// pricing error on AT&T's site recently meant I could have upgraded to a blue refurb 5C for that price, but then I would have been stuck with a blue 5C. I did get one for my teenage daughter at that price, and it made her happy. They've since fixed the glitch.

Actually,

I work for ATT as a Tech Manager, that was no glitch, we offer refurbed 5cs for that price every other week when we get them in stock.  We have been doing this since they came out.

They are for sale on att.com right now for 49.99.

Walmart, Bestbuy, Radioshack, tend to have new ones for 50 bucks though.  You can also get the metal iphone 5 for .99 cents currently on the site.

I cannot think of a single material posession that I would wait in line an hour for, much less days or weeks.

When I got my iPhone I ordered it online and it arrived on my doorstep a few days later. It's a good phone, I like it, but it's nothing amazing. I mean it's just a phone. I'll keep it until it breaks and then I may get another iphone or I may get something else, it depends whether anyone else makes a *small* smartphone with decent specs. I don't think I'll ever understand the crazy obsession.

Surely most people have jobs where they could line up days or even a couple of weeks for such things, it is just most of us have better things to do. Months would be a different matter for most people even if for some reason they wanted to.

If you have a contract, it's hard to know what you pay for the phone. My 4 was around $250. I pay $30/mo for unlimited text and data with 300 minutes of voice that I hardly ever use, no contract. You always pay the full cost of the phone, that's why there's a contract. Most carriers happily keep charging you the payments long after the phone is paid off if you don't upgrade.

Why is everyone ripping on his Dell laptop?  Christ not everyone has piles of money flying out their arse. PC laptops are cheap and work just fine without having to spend over 3x's as much just so people think you are "hip" or "cool".  Most people that flaunt apple laptops don't even need them.. I'm a graphic artist and would love to have one just for the fact that many of the great art programs out there are geared toward apple products and the color matching is unbeatable. I just don't see plunking down $3k for a decent one. My PC laptop that cost me all of $350 works JUST FINE and runs the CS6 suite perfect, so i'll stick with that until I win the lotto.
