Finally: iPhone

So I’m laying on a beach towel, soaking up the Rittenhouse Square sounds. There are a ton of people out here; it’s a beautiful day.

Two days ago, in the evening, I was standing in line at the 16th street AT&T store, behind about a hundred other people. It was my first time ever waiting in line for a tech product release like this, and I’ll admit it was a unique experience. I was also surprised by the number of people that weren’t even there to make a purchase: they were so caught up in the hype that they would gladly wait in line just to get a peek and/or feel of this thing.

Clearly, these were my people. They chattered on about edge and gigabytes and exchange and god knows what. I felt comfortable with these guys.

After waiting in line for an hour and a half, the friendly AT&T sales person came out to tell us they had sold out! I was tenth from the door.

So I went home and got mopey. Luckily my friend Mark was on his way over, so he drove me out to the Ardmore Apple Store where I was greeted with absolutely no line and super friendly salesfolk.

We sped back to the apartment, to get everything all activated and synced. An hour and a half later, we were putting the device through its paces.

I’ll write a more detailed post later, from a full sized computer.
