Thanks for hijacking the thread guys.

First half of the thread was good, the second half was bad.

Didn't want posts about delivery times, availability etc

@Mods: Please feel free to lock/delete the thread.

I ducked down to the Westgate store an hour ago.  Virtually no queue.  I went to buy a 64Gb model but they were all gone.  There were 16Gb models in all colours, and only Gold 128Gb models remained.

I'll try again later as I was not interested in having a model with a white face, and to a lesser extend not interested in paying the extra for the 128Gb model.

Isn't buying from apple kind of like using an emoji - both = no queuing 




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

tardtasticx: I'm waiting in Starbucks while my emoji is in the queue for the Queen Street store in Auckland. Does that count? Hahaha


Cant say I agree with the whole emoji thing, I don't think its fair on those that are willing to queue the old fashioned way. Its just not cricket old boy.


I didn't want to do it but preorder wasn't an option at the time and missed out unfortunately. So I had to do this. Was fun though. A few people turned up late and thought they'd still be at the front but got told to go to the back of the line like any queue.
