Hopefully you’re reading this post on your shiny new iPhone 4S! If not, can you truly call yourself an Apple fan? All joking aside, lining up for the latest iDevice is becoming a familiar routine for techies all over the world. There are even people who refuse $1500 for their prized place in line.
Not everyone pre-ordered their iPhone 4S–plenty of people are nabbing Apple’s latest handset the old-fashioned way: by waiting in line.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was the first Apple fan in line at theLos Gatos, Ca. Apple store on Thursday afternoon.
“The long wait begins,” Wozniak tweeted Thursday as he checked into Foursquare using his current iPhone, “I’m first in line. The guy ahead was on the wrong side and he’s pissed.”
Obviously, Wozniak’s waiting in line is only symbolic–he could easily get the handset with just a call to Apple, but he didn’t. “I want to get mine along with the millions of fans,” Wozniak told CNN, “I just want to be able to talk on my phone.”
