gkjb: Hey a fellow Feverite. Yea they sure did. They even supplied us with power so we can have a heater and internet access. These guys sure know how to do a launch.



Customers freezing to death outside your store is probably bad PR :)


I'm surprised they're not doing the midnight launch thing. Doing it at 7:30am when there will be a bunch of people wandering about going to work takes some of the "prestige" out of it.


Full credit for being willing to stick it out. As long as you're warmish and can keep amused then it's totally worth it. Unlike a certain other companies big launch.
