iPhone 4 launch Madness!!!!!

So my mom just called me to let me know what IPad is left at the Apple store, she's there im at work.(its a 64 gig w/ 3g) so I told her yea get it with the case. So while she's there there is a HUGE line of people waiting for 12 am for the iPhone4 and there is a tornado watch and severe thunderstorm Warnings for our area and Apple store clerks are telling them to get inside or leave bcuz they are about to call the cops...so now The sirens are going off and they pull 150 people in to the back rooms and my moms like "these people are insane" ...so yea you can imagine what my mom is going through for me for an iPad haha well she kinda wants it too

I had it all planned out...

I originally tried to walk-in on Thursday morning but had to leave for work before I would have gotten to the front of the line so my plan was to get any leftovers from those who did not pick up their reserved phones this morning...

I called my local Apple Store just around 9pm last night and confirmed with them that all unspoken for reserved phones would become walk-in stock the next morning. I also confirmed that they would be actually closing at 9pm.

So I decide to go to the mall at 1:30am to wait it out. I'm the only one there and shut my eyes and fall asleep in my Camaro. At 2am, I am woken up by a tap on my window... It's a security guard checking to see why I'm there. I explain that I'm waiting for the Apple Store to open at 8am, he doesn't know that they're opening early again but we chat it up for a while. He tells me he started his shift at 9pm and the Apple Store was still selling phones to those who were in line. Roughly 10 people were still there at closing. I'm thinking that it's a good chance that more than 10 people didn't pick up their reserved phones. So I should still be in good shape for the morning. He then says, "Do you want to wait inside the mall?" Sure as hell beats sleeping in my car. He unlocks the front doors for me and tells me just to go find a couch and make myself comfortable! He also says that the mall will open at 5:30am so be sure to be in front of the Apple Store by then. Cruise control from here on out, right?

After a nice nap on a plush couch, 5:30am rolls by and I head to the Apple Store and am first in line. 30 minutes pass by and a few people have the same idea as me and start up a queue. Shorty after, an Apple employee comes to unlock the doors to the store and I ask him if there's any reserved phones that weren't picked up last night (all the walk-in stock was burned through by 4pm Thursday). He said he'd check and would be right back. The employee comes back and says "Unfortunately, we are all out." Heart. Sunk. He then goes on to say how they did stay open past 9pm and sold reserved phones to those still waiting in line. Now get this... He then says that he and a few other Apple employees purchased the reserved phones as well!!! Come on! Is that allowed??? I was a bit peeved but he did give me a Special K breakfast bar as compensation for getting screwed over.

In any event, I was placed on a new reservation list where I'd receive an email once new stock arrived and I could pick it up without waiting in line by the end of business the following day.

What chops my ass even more is that I was able to get a preorder in for my wife but not for myself on the 15th so she's been strutting around with the new iPhone since Wednesday

I don't even know if I'd pay $20! Just what everyone needs, something else to make them more distracted from families, jobs, and life itself. something else to deter people from enjoying the world outside their phone and actually physically communicating and talking to people or buying something in a walk-in store. Apple is laughing all the way to the bank with people that think they have to have the latest and greatest, do everything phone. Give me a phone that freakin makes calls and has voicemail, i'm good to go. Grown adults acting like 10 year olds at Christmas with these things.

yeah, like PQ said in other words, you'll be way more popular with your Camaro than your iPhone.
