I thought I’d stop by the Apple store on 5th Avenue this morning to scope out the scene. Taking into account the rain, I didn’t quite know what to expect but there were about 25-30 early birds waiting in line for the 5p release. However, after speaking to some of them, I found out most were either being paid to wait in line by others. Upon my arrival, the first woman in line was being paid $900 for her spot. The guy of course was returning around 4’ish to claim his prize. After all, when you drop nearly a thousand dollars, why wait in the rain?
Here are some early photos.
