If you want a new iPhone, just order it online and have it delivered to your door like a normal human being. Or just go to an AT&T or Verizon store in the afternoon after the initial rush. Don't. Stand. In. Line.
The iPhone 5S was just announced. Twitter user @Xxxprius isn't chancing anything. "I went ahead and got the first place in line," he tweeted. Now, all he has to do is wait. For well over a week.
"I'm lined up at the Ginza Apple Store where the new iPhone 5S launches in ten days," @Xxxprius added nearly 20 hours ago. "This might be tough."
In what has all the trappings of a publicity stunt (for himself, at least), so far, he's hooked up his iPad and camped out in a lawn chair on the pavement in Tokyo's swanky Ginza district, live tweeting along the way.
If that's one thing he has, it's time to tweet. Oodles of it. Thank goodness for flexible working hours. Or no working hours at all. Whichever!
He's dealt with rain.
He's made iPhone friends.
And this is only his first day. Just nine more to go!
