Like swallows to Capistrano, resellers, publicity seekers and early adopters must needs flock to the nearest Apple Store when a new iPhone is about to be released.
There were line sitters camped outside Manhattan’s Fifth Ave store last week even before the iPhone 6 was unveiled. By Thursday night — 12 hours before the doors on the big glass cube were scheduled to open — the ragged queue stretched across three city blocks.
Update: Friday morning countdowns and a dropped iPhone 6, via YouTube.
