I have absolutely no idea what Steve Mays (left) did to this poor tv cameraman to elicit this expression and I don’t want to know.
I think it’s just part of the wackiness that’s become iPhone-Mania.
See a lot of coverage of this historic event in the news.
Here’s a video Steve did this morning which includes an interview with Mr. Number One In Line:
I’m sure Steve will have more posted on his site later.
This is outside the local AT&T store here in Jefferson City, MO. There were people lined up even here to get their iPhone before anyone else. I think the store kind of overdid it on the security thing. They were locked up tight with a police guard outside. At 6pm they let in the first nine people. You can see number one going in this photo. Then they locked it back up again.
One of the reporters outside said that a customer stopped by to pay her bill but they wouldn’t let her in. Now that’s crazy.
While I was standing there taking these pics a guy who looked like the store manage walked up in an AT&T logo shirt. Even he had trouble getting in. He wouldn’t do an interview either.
I stopped first at another local AT&T authorized dealer and they said Apple wouldn’t send them phones for today’s launch. Why?
I need to buy one for the winner of a drawing we held in our trade show booth at the National Agri-Marketing Association convention a few months ago. I’m not standing in any line to wait though.
So why should you care? Apple is going to revolutionize mobile content delivery. That means the information and way you communicate with your clients. Think about it.
I did go to the Apple Store just now and got this message saying I need to come back later. I guess that’s what I’ll do.
