cafeg: Lets see, what else to we lineup for:
So I guess we are all sad individuals,
But the probably the biggest reason geeks lineup for Ipads and iphones is to get them now instead of waiting 5 to 6 weeks or longer on order from the apple online store.
So, just thinking on it,
the reason why I lined up was because I wanted one now not in 6 weeks :-)
People also lined up for the sony playstation, psp and xboxes, when they are released, sometimes at midnight. But in most of those cases I am sure that the people in line would have left happy that they had ended up getting the product. The problem with the apple one, is many people left disappointed, as apple didn't provide anywhere enough product for the demand at the time. I guess this was planned, otherwise someone made a huge error and miscalculation on the demand. It would have been good for them to actually say that there was only going to be a very limited stock initially.
