Sitting in line for an iPhone 5

Now is the season of queuing at Apple Stores worldwide (or, at least, in those countries where the iPhone 5 will be on sale this Friday).

It’s amazing how the first in the line usually has some point to make, as you see from this picture taken outside the main Sydney store this morning. Pity this is such a boring old phone that it is doomed to disaster. 

I’ve often thought of doing the queue, just out of interest and in search of good fellowship. That chair does look comfy. But, as usual, I’ve taken the easy route and am putting my faith in UPS.
